Notice the heat in the inboard end of both the pump and the motor. The pump impeller casing is cool. The coupler is the warmest thing in the image. All these things usually indicate a slight misalignment problem.

P-402b.fts
06/15/2006

This inboard bearing is running too hot.

Although it is not at the critical stage yet it will be before long.

I would first check to sure it is properly lubricated, and then I would check the alignment on this machine.

This bearing will not last long at these temperatures.

This was taken as a baseline image.
