SUBJECT: The centrifugal pump is drawing too much amperage. 10-11

There are a couple of things you must keep in mind when troubleshooting centrifugal pump problems:

The increased amperage can be caused by a pump that is too large for the application.

The increased amperage can be caused by a change in the product.

The increased amperage is caused by two part rubbing together as a result of shaft displacement. Here are some common causes of shaft displacement:

There are many parts that can come into contact when the shaft displaces.

The increased amperage can be caused by an increase in bearing loading.

The starting procedure could be the problem.

Check to see if there is too much axial thrust.

Here are a few more reasons why you might be using too much amperage.
