Metering pumps

Pennwell web 250 300

Neptune™ Chemical Pump Co. offers the Series 500 Metering Pumps for chemical dosing. The pumps feature a Variable Oil By-pass™ stroke adjustment that allows for better valve performance than traditional variable-linkage designs. This allows the valve checks to have extra time to seat even in heavy liquids since they are idle during the by-pass portion of the suction and discharge strokes. Other features include the ability to be adjustable from 10% to 100% of capacity via micrometer dial and Eze-Clean™ valve cartridges that can be removed for cleaning without disturbing the piping to the pump.

Split seals

Pennwell web 224 300

A.W. Chesterton has developed advanced split mechanical seals for large size pumps that can eliminate wastewater and raw water leakage in pumps that were previously sealed with packing. Eliminating the process leakage stops the problems created by it – premature bearing and equipment failure, overall equipment and plant corrosion, biological hazards associated with wastewater, and the need to disassemble these large pumps to install new bearings and other damaged components. The seals have successfully sealed large water and wastewater pumps with shaft sizes ranging from 1” to 24”.

Hose pump

Pennwell web 300 265

In an LPP-D pump from Larox Flowsys, a single, bearing-mounted roller presses the hose only once per 360 degree operating cycle, producing the highest flow per revolution of any peristaltic pump. The rolling design minimizes hose wear, eliminates friction and lowers energy consumption. The company’s hoses typically last 3-5 times longer than other hose pumps. The pumps are ideal for flocculants because they are a low shear device.

Pump monitoring switch

Pennwell web 300 200

The FlexSwitch® FLT93 Pump Protection Flow Switch from Fluid Components International (FCI) can reduce pump repair and extend pump life by detecting dry running conditions caused by irregular liquid flows or slurries. The switch monitors the flow, level and temperature of liquids. It is ideal for pump wet/dry detection, where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow rates may leave pumps vulnerable to over-heating conditions that can result in bearing or seal damage. With its dual alarm capability, the switch will detect a low-flow situation anywhere between 0.01 and 3 feet per second (FPS) and sound a warning.

Screw pump

Pennwell web 300 300

Schreiber incorporates the Archimedean screw pump concept in both its Tube Mounted Screw Pump and the Open Flight Screw Pump. This concept provides variable capacity at a constant speed up to its design maximum. The tube mounted pump transports liquid inside a stationary tube, simplifying structure design and eliminating the need for grouting. The units are completely factory assembled, which minimizes installation costs. Pumps can be set at a fixed angle or the lower end can be supported by a hoist to vary the pump angle and for maintenance access.
