The importance of choosing the right pump

90% of pump failures occur due to a mistake in choosing the right pump. A lot of money, time and effort are wasted as a result of using a pump that is not at its optimal capacity. Let’s take a look at why choosing the right pump is important?

The pump function is basically moves fluids by mechanical action, typically converted from electrical energy into hydraulic energy, but that does not mean that all pumps can be used in every application. So if we choose a pump only from its function it is certainly not correct. Especially if the function is based on wanting to get cheaper costs.

We understand that every business has a tight budget for any unnecessary expenses. But in the long run, choosing the right pump will actually provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Security

With the right pump, we guarantee there won’t be any leaks.

  • Maintenance

If we choose an unsuitable pump, valves, impellers and other components of the pump will fail because they are used for applications that were not designed for that. This of course will incur significant costs for repairs through replacement and maintenance of spare parts. Choosing the right pump will also limit the amount of maintenance required and hence reduce costs in the long run.

  • Efficiency

By choosing the right pump, we will have a big advantage in terms of efficiency. It will pump a larger volume of fluid and faster. This will certainly complete the work on time, which will further reduce costs. In addition, efficiency also results in reduced energy use. With the right pump, we will reduce operating costs.

And what are the failures that result from the wrong choice of an improper pump:

  1. The pump is made of a material designed to handle fluids and is used to transport abrasive or corrosive substances. This means the pump is in a hard conditionthat is over production limits. The result? Failures and leaks.
  2. .NPSH was not properly selected before installation. NPSH is used to measure the possibility of cavitation caused by flashing (evaporation). Again, this occurs when the pump asked to handle a higher suction lift that was not designed for it.
  3. Incorrect evaluation of the best efficiency point (BEP). The best efficiency point will provide the ideal parameters for getting the best out of the pump.If this is exceeded, problems such as cavitation will occur.
  4. Significant environmental changes. This occurs when the source / material being pumped is not what it was intended for. If the pump is not designed for that particular use, failure will occur.
  5. Installation of low-quality pumps also causes premature failure and other problems.
  6. Likewise, due to budget constraints, we sometimes prefer the cheapest option. But if the cheapest option is not designed for a specific use of the pump, then failure will occur.
  7. In other cases some users may be familiar with a particular type of pump and therefore use the same model throughout the work unit. However, if the pump was asked to handle different materials at different pressures and flow rates, it would not work.

Get the Right Pump with Torishima.

If you are unsure about choosing the right pump for your needs, PT Torishima Guna Indonesia is ready to help. Our highly trained Sales and Technicians are ready to answer any questions you have and help you identify the best option for your budget.

ISO 45001:2018 Dalam Penerapannya Di PT. Torishima Guna Indonesia

PT. Torishima Guna Indonesia sebagai produsen pompa sentrifugal di Indonesia telah menerapkan beberapa standar management system yang terintegrasi, diantaranya dari sisi Kualitas (QMS) yang menerapkan ISO 9001:2015, dari sisi Lingkungan / EMS menerapkan ISO 14001:2015, dan juga yang terbaru yaitu penerapan dari sisi K3 / OHSMS dengan ISO 45001:2018, yang pada tahun 2019 telah diterapkan sebagai upgrade dari OHSAS 18001 selaku satu – satunya standar SMK3 yang berlaku secara International.

Pada prinsipnya ada perbedaan mendasar antara ISO 45001 dengan OHSAS 18001. yaitu secara struktur sistem ISO 45001 bertujuan untuk memfasilitasi proses implementasi dan integrasi beberapa sistem manajemen lainnya sehingga dapat dipadukan secara efisien dan sistematis. Kemudian ada Konteks Organisasi yang mempertimbangkan aspek K3 sebagai dampak tidak hanya pekerja namun juga masyarakat yang lebih luas yaitu komunitas di sekitarnya.ISO 45001 menuntut penggabungan dari aspek kesehatan dan keselamatan kerja dalam keseluruhan sistem manajemen organisasi, dengan demikian mendorong top manajemen dan departemen lainnya selain departemen K3, untuk memiliki peran kepemimpinan yang kuat terhadap sistem manajemen K3. ISO 45001 juga mempersyaratkan organisasi untuk memperhitungkan bagaimana pemasok dan kontraktor mengelola resikonya.

Pada Bulan Mei 2021, PT. Torishima Guna Indonesia telah melaksanakan Audit Surveillance ISO 45001:2018. Diantara hal – hal prinsip yang harus diperhatikan adalah Organisasi wajib mengidentifikasi dan mengetahui isu – isu terkait yang melibatkan K3 sebagai dampak dari keutuhan bisnis dan menjadi dasar continous improvement yang akan diterapkan. Organisasi juga wajib mematuhi peraturan yang berlaku terkait K3 baik peraturan skala Negara maupun skala pemerintah kota, misalkan melakukan secara pemantauan area kerja secara berkala dalam aspek fisika, kimia, dan biologi. Pemantauan kebisingan, pencahayaan, ISBB, dan getaran. Melakukan sertifikasi terhadap operator dan equipment produksi maupun utility seperti sertifikasi Crane dalam bentuk SILO (Surat Izin Laik Operasi) dan Operator yang menggunakan Crane tersebut dalam bentuk SIO (Surat Izin Operator).

PT. Torishima Guna Indonesia sebagai Pabrik Manufaktur yang melibatkan proses bubut / machining memiliki bermacam mesin bubut, untuk itu wajib juga dilakukan sertifikasi PTP (Pesawat Tenaga Produksi)

Sebagai supporting pengangkutan material kami juga menggunakan Forklift untuk mempermudah mobilisasi material dan kami berkomitmen untuk melatih pengguna / driver forklift yang telah disertifikasi sebelum menggunakannya.

ISO 45001 melakukan pendekatan mengenai keselamatan & kesehatan kerja secara sistematis dan komprehensif. Hal ini menjadi jawaban dari pertanyaan tentang bagaimana mencegah kecelakaan kerja terjadi terus-menerus. Kesehatan dan Keselamatan Kerja Adalah Hal Penting dan Menjadi Tanggung Jawab Bersama. Sebagai bentuk komitmen manajemen terhadap penerapan ISO 45001:2018, kami melaksanakan Management Review tahunan terhadap semua aspek kepentingan bisnis beserta resiko dan peluangnya yang terintegrasi dengan sistem K3 & Lingkungan.
