Why Selecting Genuine OEM Replacement Parts is Most Economical


Goulds Pumps, one of the fluid brands of ITT Industries, has published a new four color, fully illustrated, 8 page brochure which describes why selecting genuine OEM replacement parts, instead of cheap imitations, remains the most economical choice.

Featured is a "questions you should ask" section, which accurately provides the answers that buyers need to know before they settle on buying non- OEM parts for their Goulds pumps. Part of this section also includes recent graphic test data that compares the efficiencies in performance, head, and flow of a pump that contains non-OEM parts with a pump using genuine Goulds parts.

Shaft and Sleeve Check Lists Offered

A section contains an eight-point checklist for shaft inspection along with a five-point sleeve checklist. Detailed instructions are offered on what to look for along with both photographs and engineering drawings. An impeller section shows graphically and with detailed call outs how non-OEM impellers fail to meet casting and dimensional specifications, which effect pump performance.

This brochure also outlines additional information on Goulds inventory services, power end programs, upgrade and re-engineering capabilities.
