A new pocket-size 12-page brochure describes Red Valve's Tideflex® Mixing System (TMS) and how it can eliminate stagnation and thermal stratification in drinking water storage reservoirs. The TMS uses patented Tideflex® Check Valve technology combined with a custom piping manifold to provide more complete mixing than the common inlet/outlet system typically used in potable water tanks. Effective mixing of stored water and incoming water vastly decreases the formation and growth of dangerous bacteria, loss of disinfectant residual, disinfectant by-product formation, nitrification in chlorinated systems, and algae and biofilm growth.

Pump protection

Th 163937
Click here to enlarge image

A new brochure describes the seepex TSE, which protects against dry run damage, the most common cause of progressive cavity pump failure. An adjustable set-point control unit (with isolated relay contacts) is integrated within the starter or VFD panel for the pump motor and is connected to the temperature sensor installed in the pump stator. If the pump runs dry, the temperature rises due to increased friction between rotor and stator. Once the set point is reached, the TSE control unit can stop the pump drive and activate an alarm signal. Ask for Brochure ADV.
