Smith & Loveless has published a bulletin for the new Sonic Start® Streamline™. It showcases the new prime sensing system, which eliminates routine maintenance. The bulletin features design benefits and full-color photographs of the system. Improvements from the Sonic Start® to the updated Streamline version are significant. The new system’s Vacuum Dome Assembly eliminates routine cleaning of the solenoid valve and the vapor filter. The new system removes 50 percent of the vacuum tubing connection fittings. It also features a quick disconnect male fitting which boasts an improved circular uniform constriction fit.

Wobble stator pumps
seepex has re-engineered its line of low-cost wobble stator pumps for utility and commercial applications to improve performance in several areas. Complete details and performance curves are contained in a new 8-page color brochure available from seepex in printed or electronic form. The unique flexible stator has increased elastic properties that improve volumetric efficiencies and longevity by reducing “slip” and friction at higher pressures. Geometries of the rotor and stator have been adjusted to improve mechanical efficiency. The rotating unit has a single universal joint, allowing rapid exchange of conveying elements and cutting downtime when replacing parts.
