SPX FLOW is committed to maximizing its lifetime value of our highly engineered sanitary and industrial pump offerings. Whether your operation utilizes our APV, Bran+Luebbe, Johnson Pump or Waukesha Cherry-Burrell equipment, our goal is to ensure you get the most out of your pumps’ performance to maximize efficiency and increase uptime. From fully warranted factory remanufacturing, pump exchange programs, inspect and advise customized pump repair or quick delivery of genuine spare parts, our team is ready to provide the services that best match your individual needs.
Like any other hard working piece of equipment, your SPX FLOW pump will eventually require service and genuine replacement parts to best maintain its original performance level. Whether your pump is used to process or control process flow, rely on original, factory calibrated parts. Customer service and parts experts anticipate potential requests that may begin without part numbers or equipment serial numbers. Through systematic troubleshooting or blueprint analysis, they can quickly determine the appropriate parts needed. SPX FLOW parts ship quickly by utilizing these strategic tools:
- Nationwide Stocking Distribution Network
- Large parts inventory
- Computerized storage system
- Trained product line experts
- Fast turnaround shipping
- Suggested parts list for self-stocking
Saving money on spare parts may seem like sound business sense but using non-original spares can cause more harm than good. Having saved just a few dollars, replacing precision engineered components with parts that don’t have the same tolerances can have a serious detrimental effect on equipment performance and even cause costly damage and safety issues.

High Precision Pump Shaft Bearings
There are many “might-fit” alternative shaft bearings available, but they do not come close to meeting genuine OEM specifications. Off-the-shelf bearings miss critical manufacturing steps that SPX FLOW employs to deliver extremely tight internal tolerances that distinguish the performance of Waukesha Cherry-Burrell Positive Displacement Pumps. SPX FLOW provides Genuine OEM tapered roller shaft bearings as matched assemblies which are measured and paired to ensure exact internal clearances. To create these high-quality components, SPX FLOW starts with premium bearings and then measures and mechanically forms the individual components to create a perfectly matched assembly. Maintaining proper internal clearance is important for running at optimal efficiencies and extending pump life.
Utilizing non-OEM bearings in Waukesha pumps could cause several issues, including:
- Reduced bearing life from excess heat
- Uneven load distribution on the bearing, resulting in reduced bearing life and premature failure
- Rotor contact and damage to the body, cover or another rotor due to shaft deflection
Contact an SPX FLOW representative or download High Precision Pump Shaft Bearings information sheet to learn more about our bearing and shaft assembly kits that can help save time and money during the pumps next maintenance cycle.
Preventative Maintenance for Positive Displacement Pumps
