Ronnie Mitten Works
Newcastle upon Tyne
With over 35 years’ multi-industry experience in electro mechanical engineering, Houghton International are a leading provider of a wide range of services for pumps, motors, generators and all electrical rotating equipment:
• Repair, maintenance and life extension
• Upgrade and refurbishment
• Efficiency and reliability improvements
• Reverse engineering and CAD design
• Dynamic load testing and diagnostics
• Supply of new pumps and spares
• Condition monitoring and electrical and mechanical testing
• 24 hour callout service and on-site support
• All brands – independent of OEM
With a wide range of electro mechanical engineering services, we offer a full, multi-discipline service covering the whole pump and motor set and specialise in fault finding, diagnosis and root cause analysis to improve performance and eliminate issues. We use our knowledge and experience to ensure that pump systems are fit for purpose, modifying the design and upgrading the components accordingly to improve efficiency, save energy and extend the mean time between failure (MTBF).
Pump Testing and Diagnosis
After pump repair or servicing we fully test each pump, including temperature and vibration. A full performance test curve is also provided to confirm optimum performance and provide engineers with a datum to work from when installing the pump. On-site performance analysis can also be undertaken to test the performance of the pump in operation. All testing is carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 9906-2000; API 610 or customers’ specified standards.
We have machining and repair facilities to cover all the mechanical aspects of a pump repair and reverse engineering capabilities for obsolete and long lead parts.
Parts can be radiographed, NDT tested, and PMI tested to ensure quality and maximise the life of the pump.
Our workshops boasts a wide range of fitting facilities, including bench tools for all pumps, torque equipment, a full range of calibrated measuring equipment and a range of presses to enable the removal of impellers, couplings and bearings.
We have lifting capabilities up to 40 tonne, 5m x 6m access and a 13m (42ft) working height to handle most pumps.
With balancing facilities up to 10 tonnes for impeller and rotor balancing, all impellers are balanced prior to assembly. We strive to balance to as close to G1 as possible, without compromising the impeller, to ensure smoother operation and prolong bearing life.
We also offer protective and performance coatings as required, to improve pump efficiency and prolong the life of the equipment. Where parts are obsolete or original spares are unavailable, on long lead-times or no longer fit for purpose we can reverse engineer all parts for improved performance. We can also design and specify systems from scratch and have full 3D CAD capabilities in-house to support these projects.
