DV GROUP, the solution for repairing your Pumps and Mixers

The industrial pump enables a liquid to be moved from one point to another by communicating the energy required to move this liquid. Agitators, meanwhile, whether rotary, static, using a propulsion system or a rotating tank, have the ability to develop a product by synthesis or by mixture. They are frequently used in the chemical or food industries.

Our service involves a test phase with closed circuit test benches, including:

  • Characterisation of pump in its established routine and network
  • Flow/pressure control with variable speed drive
  • Pump characterisation while adjusted and driven with variable speed drive: process adjustment / energy savings
  • Calculation and definition of the networks: loss of load / total manometric height (HMP) / valves

Pump type and agitator handled:

  • Surface pumps
  • Single-cell / multi-cell horizontal centrifugal pumps and vertical centrifugal pumps
  • Multi-cell submerged pumps from 4’ to 25’’’
  • Waste water pumps
  • Vortex or single-channel submersible pumps
  • Lifting or submerged pumps
  • Tank or basin agitators
  • Water boost pumps
  • Pneumatic pumps
  • Dry vacuum or liquid ring pumps, gas and roots boosters (Hibon)

Technical procedures / test procedures:

Procedure before dismantling

  • Inspection of motor connections, cables, etc.
  • Mechanical inspection: general condition, mounting flange, etc.
  • Electrical inspection (insulation, resistances)

Repair Procedure

    • Degreasing, descaling, removing rust and paint without damaging parts
    • Metrological inspection of bearing seatings, joint surfaces, flanges, shaft, turbine and wear ring
    • Inspect grip: braid and seal
    • Inspect rotating elements (balancing)
    • Repair: chromage, ringing, molten metal refill of the various joint surfaces, complete refill of the motor shaft
    • Electrical inspection: ageing, pollution: BAKER index, state of winding
  • Repair: winding and soaking. Class H: high temperature

Testing / validation procedure

    • Inspection of leaks under pump pressure
  • Check of hydraulic characteristics of flow rate and pressure using a closed-circuit hydraulic test bench

Traceability procedure

    • Diagnosis and testing history
    • Traceability produced by: machine number, customer number and DV GROUP number
  • Test sheet and qualification/test certificate

Case study :


Need / Context

Glass producers must rebuild their furnaces every 15 years. The refractory brick component needs to be replaced to ensure its tightness of fit. During this shutdown, the OI Manufacturing site in Ardèche refurbishes the related equipment. Glass production has a reliability requirement, and must be able to ensure long periods without breakdown or maintenance stoppage.


To achieve these availability and efficiency goals, the glass producer entrusts us with the removal, overhaul and refitting of its fifteen 750 KW - 50 Hz medium-voltage fan and compressor motors. For one month (800 hours), our teams from the various electromechanical sites in Grigny, Cambrai and Lyon mobilised to process these products and meet the deadlines imposed by our customer. We added DV GROUP know-how to the flawless organisation demanded by this project. OI Manufacturing has atypical 750 KW - 50 Hz medium voltage motors with plain oil bearings instead of ball bearings. These bearings carry a higher radial load and have a longer life than bearings. However, they require a specific expertise.


- Deadlines met - Furnace restart with products 100% tested and 100% functional


Need / Context

The European Organization for Nuclear Research, commonly known as CERN, is the largest particle physics center in the world. CERN is located in Switzerland, near Geneva. On an ad hoc basis, CERN makes technical stops in order to recondition their equipment. Following the last stop, a lubrication problem on two cooling tower reducers is detected.


CERN wants a SIEMENS / FLENDER agreed repair partner which leads them to contact us. After many exchanges with the customer, particularly about the safety of this kind of repairs, CERN entrusts us with the project. Our customer asked us to overhaul these 2 FLENDER industrial reducers but also to supply and replace the lubrication pump within a period of 4 weeks. For a month, our teams were mobilized to treat these products and meet the deadlines our customer required.


- Deadlines respected - Preparation of a detailed report describing the different operations carried out - Convinced by the results of this first collaboration, CERN wishes to entrust us with the overhaul of 6 to 8 other reducers for the coming years.
