Basic use of wearing rings in centrifugal pump - Grow ...

Why wearing ring change in centrifugal pump? To improve the performance of the centrifugal pump and reduce noise and vibration within the pump, when the clearance between both wear rings exceeds twice of its original clearance value (as per equipment vendor recommendation) then the wearing needs to change. This is the thumb rule for change.

PURPOSE OF WEAR RING - Pump engineering - Eng-Tips

2012-1-20  Wear rings are often installed on both the front and back of the impeller. When wear rings are installed on the back of the impeller, another set of rings is installed in the backcover. Wear rings act as the seal between the casing and the impeller. Pump manufacturers know that decreasing wear ring clearance leads to improved efficiency.
