What is a

stator of progressive cavity pump ?

The stator of the progressive cavity pump is one of the important main parts of progressive cavity pump, also known as the progressive cavity pump bushing;

The material is usually divided into two categories:

1. Use inelastic hard materials such as metals, plastics, and ceramics;
2. Use rubber-like elastic materials (including a small amount of elastic plastic).
At present, most domestic and foreign stators are rubber-based stators;

The rotor driven by the external power source meshes with the stator to form a sealed cavity that separates the suction cavity and the discharge cavity, so that the pump can work effectively.

How to install the progressive cavity pump stator ?

  1. After the rotor and pump body are installed, the inner cavity of the stator and the surface of the rotor need to be coated with lubricant or dimethyl silicone oil;
  2. Fix the stator with tooling (can be chain clamp, pipe clamp or special fixing tool);
  3. One person fixes the stator and one person clockwise disc pump (it is standard to stand on the pump drive end and look towards the water outlet), and sleeve the stator into the rotor until the fit is complete;
  4. Install the buttress so that the stator and rotor are on the same horizontal line;
  5. Install four long bolts and material-out chamber.

How to disassemble the progressive cavity pump stator ?

  1. Inject lubricating medium or dimethyl silicone oil from the end of the stator (Material-out chamber);
  2. Rotate the drive shaft or coupling clockwise 3-5 times to make the lubricating medium fill the entire cavity of the stator;
  3. Loosen the four long bolts, and remove the discharge body and buttress;
  4. Fix the stator with tooling (can be chain clamp, pipe clamp or special fixing tool);
  5. One person fixes the stator and pulls it out, and one person counterclockwise discs the drive shaft or coupling to make the stator withdraw.
  6. So far, the stator has been disassembled.

Frequently Asked Question

1. Natural Wear:
Since the stator and rotor are interference fit (sometimes the medium contains solid particles), these conditions are fixed, so in the actual operation process, it will be purely natural wear.

2. Unnatural Wear:
The pump is reversed and idling causes dry operation (the medium is not filled with the medium or the material is interrupted during the operation), and the medium enters the hard foreign matter.

The front end is the same as the rear end:

The suction end is the same as the discharge end, and there is no distinction between front and rear.

The front end is different from the slender:

An oval section with a bell mouth at one end; the bell mouth is the take-out end, and the ellipse is the discharge end.

1. The matching gap between stator and rotor becomes larger;
2. The flow is reduced or no discharge;
3. Pressure decrease or no pressure;
4. There is abnormal noise in the pump cavity, and there is foreign matter in it, causing the rubber to be torn;
5. The adhesive failed, causing the rubber to fall off.
