Peristaltic pumps

Click here to enlarge image

The FPU500 Series peristaltic pumps from Omega offer variable flow capability. A motor turns the pump's rollers, which squeeze fluid through precision bore tubing in a wave-like motion. The fluid does not contact the pump. This makes the pumps ideal for use in sterile, corrosive, or general fluid flow operating environments. The pump is self-priming and non-siphoning. As one section of the tube fatigues, simply move the tube along to an unused section and continue pumping. No tools are required to load the tube. One pump may be used for many different applications, or mount two pumps onto the motor.

Submersible pumps

Click here to enlarge image

Submersible EMU pumps from USFilter David Products are totally sealed, with an entirely self-contained cooling technology that functions equally well when completely submerged or when standing exposed day after day in the baking sun. Cooling is accomplished by an internal heat exchanger that allows the hot oil to dump its heat load to the liquid being pumped. The spiral shaped heat exchanger keeps the oil in contact with the pumped liquid long enough to assure that at least 85% of the heat is exchanged.

Metering pump

Click here to enlarge image

The new PZiA Electronic Metering Pump from Neptune Chemical Pump Co. features an integrated, automatic discharge volume control. Special circuitry is built into the unit to allow for on-board calibration of pump flow under actual process conditions. Once calibrated, the pump can be set to a flow rate, or an analog signal can define the flow rate. The pump will then automatically adjust to maintain the precise flow rate, automatically compensating for changes in temperature, pressure or viscosity. The pump includes a Flow Checker for verification. The Flow Checker is an oval gear meter, which transmits actual flow data to the pump controller. The pump speeds up or slows down as necessary to maintain the required flowrate. The discharge volume during calibration, the instantaneous pump flow rate, or progress during batch operation is displayed on the pump's backlit LCD display, allowing for measurement without the need for stopping pump operation.

Watson-Marlow Bredel offers the 323 peristaltic pump. Designed to provide high-performance pumping for environmental applications, the pump is ideal for chemical metering. The pumps can handle harsh chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite, ferric chloride, alum, sodium bi-sulfite, caustic, aqueous ammonia, polymer, and many others. In addition, the pump will not vapor lock from hypochlorite off-gassing. Because the pump's tube is the only replacement part, tube change-over can be completed in three seconds, making the pump virtually maintenance-free. A typical pump rebuild costs less than $15. The 323 pump is reversible, offers seven different tube sizes with turndown ratios of 20,000:1, and requires no pulsation dampeners, strainers, or back pressure valves.

EDUR Centrifugal DAF Pumps, offered by Shanley Pump, are designed for handling dissolved air flotation applications and liquid-gas mixtures. They are ideal for waste activated sludge thickening. The pumps can help produce better quality white water, which increases the percent solids of the float by more than 50% while reducing the amount of sludge sinking to the bottom of the DAF. Ultimately, the time required by the operators to draw off the bottom sludge is greatly reduced. The DAF re-aeration power consumption can also be reduced by more than 35%. The pumps are available in two series, as closed-coupled or foot-mounted design, and can handle flows up to 300 gpm.

Sigma Controls is now delivering its new duplex or triplex pump "Smart" Float controllers. The Myriad FPC is ideal for duplex or triplex pump down systems. Its microprocessor incorporated electronics constantly monitor all aspects of pump performance, via pump inputs such as pump overload trip and or motor over temperature. All floats are continuously monitored for leak, float open circuit, float sequence and float short circuit. A float failing will cause actuation of the discrete float alarm outputs and will adjust the logic to operate the pumps normally with the remaining floats. The economical system comes with four Sigma Series 2000 float switches with internal monitoring hardware. Outputs are provided for three pump controls, float out of sequence alarm, high level, pump fault and float fail alarm.

A heavy duty submersible pump designed to handle various types of slurries has been introduced by ITT Flygt. Designated as the 5150, the pump is ideal for use in most any other application where solid granules are present, which can rapidly erode pump volutes, impellers and other wear parts. To extend the life of the pump, all wear parts are made of high chrome. The company's Spin-out™ feature expels abrasive particles from the seal chamber, preventing damage to the outer seal. The Plug-in™ seal system permits fast seal replacement. The pumps are available with a wide range of Class H motor sizes. Capable of handling 15 starts per hour, built-in sensors warn against high temperatures and stator leakage. An inspection chamber between the seal unit and bearings employs a built-in sensor for early detection of any fluid build-up, reducing the risk of internal damage and increasing reliability.

Trash pumps

Click here to enlarge image

Thompson Pump has developed the Enviroprime® system for its dry prime, compressor-assisted trash pumps. The system prevents blow-by — sewage, debris and chemicals — from discharging onto the ground, keeping the surrounding environment clean and safe. The system uses an air compressor to separate air from the water that is moving through the pump, which prevents the pump's venturi from clogging and causing a shutdown. With the air escaping separately, the fluid can continue through the pump without any unwanted blow-by discharge. The separation cycle is continuous. Trash pumps are available in a variety of sizes and models, all with the ability to transfer liquids containing solids up to 3" in diameter.
