Reliability parameters are derived from raw components and failure data of pumps. Data taken from the Component Event Data Bank are analysed. The analysis includes outlier detection, failure rate trend analysis and the estimation of central and pessimistic values for failure probabilities, using a classical and Bayesian method for groups of similar pumps which are not necessarily statistically identical. Graphic methods are applied for the analysis of the failure rates per pump.
