Progressive cavity pumps
seepex has released a new integrated drive for its metering and general transfer progressive cavity pumps. The drive integrates the pumps with a single reduction gear reducer, a four-pole, TEFC, inverter-rated ½ hp electric induction motor and a “vector” type, variable frequency drive in a NEMA 4 enclosure. Because external or special fabricated control enclosures are not required for high pressure or run-dry protection, installation is no more complicated than a typical home stereo. The pump and drive combination can cover a performance band of 0.08 gph to 4.7 gpm and pressures to 360 psi. The unit operates from standard 120 vAC, 15 amp circuits with a 5-15p grounded plug.

JWC Environmental’s Channel Monster® grinder is ideal for pump stations and headworks. The grinder’s larger cutters, shafts and housing allow it to process heavier slugs of materials. The system combines rotating drums and a Muffin Monster® grinder to allow high flow while shredding solids into smaller particles which allows them to flow safely thru pumps. The system’s shredding and high flow eliminate the handling of hazardous screenings, and the auto load sensing and reversing controls reduce interrupts and protect the system.

Shaft alignment monitoring
As machines are started up and put under load, they may move relative to each other. Ludeca’s Optalign Smart laser shaft alignment system measures machine movement using the M3 Brackets. System components are mounted on the bearing housings, two separate rotational readings are taken, hot-running and cold-stopped, and results are easily obtained. Any difference suggests positional change has taken place.

Pump backup system
When electric submersibles and generators fail, pumping stops in the lift station and you run the risk of costly Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs). The Godwin Dri-Prime® Backup System can help reduce that risk. For nearly the same investment as a standby generator or less, the backup system will start and stop automatically using the company’s PrimeGuard™ diesel engine controller.

The FlexSwitch® FLT Pump Protection Flow Switch from Fluid Components International (FCI) monitors the flow and temperature of liquids and gases. It is ideal for wet/dry detection in protecting pumps, where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow rates may leave pumps vulnerable to over-heating conditions that can result in bearing or seal damage that require major repairs or shorten their useful life.

SolarBee solar-powered circulators provide radial, long distance circulation (LDC) directly to the epilimnium, the top layer of a reservoir. The result is effective control over blue-green algae blooms in fresh water. In wastewater ponds, the system can cut energy costs by reducing aerator run time. Potable water storage tanks benefit from its ability at reducing stratification, stagnation and nitrification. Mechanically, SolarBee features low-voltage and slow-speed up-flow pumps which are mounted in floating platforms and driven by high efficiency (90+%) direct-current motors.

Pump control system
ITT’s PumpSmart is a combination of a standard variable speed drive and over 150 years of pump hydraulic design and pump process knowledge. By leveraging commonly available information through the variable speed drive such as speed, power and torque the system provides key pump performance indicators which maximizes control and reduces energy consumption over a standard variable speed drive. Patented features which can not be found on a standard variable speed drive include SmartFlow™, a sensorless flow measurement system that can derive the flow of the pump within ± 5% of the rated pump flow.
