Tube failure detection technology
Blue-White’s new TFD+ (Tube Failure Detection) is now built into every FLEXFLO® Polymer Pump at no additional cost. This breakthrough technology is designed to detect the presence of oil- and water-based polymers in the pump head, which would indicate tube failure. When the TFD+ senses tube failure the pump automatically shuts off and will energize a relay, permitting communications with external equipment, such as a backup pump, an alarm or a SCADA system. There is no false triggering caused by condensation or washdown procedures. The pump will not resume operation until the problem is resolved.

New sizes for FSIP progressive cavity pumps
NETZSCH Pumps North America has added to its line of full service-in-place (FSIP) NEMO® progressive cavity pumps. Ideal for wear-intensive applications, the maintenance-friendly FSIP™ design has been re-engineered to provide full access to all the pumps’ rotating parts. NEMO FSIP is now available in six sizes (NM045 to NM105) for flow rates up to 700 gallons per minute (gpm). Now offered with differential pressures up to 90 pounds per square inch (psi; 1-stage) up to 180 psi (2-stage). S, L, D and P geometries are now available. All wearing parts — from flange to flange — can easily be replaced when opening the pump.

Tacmina Corporation recently announced the addition of two new Smoothflow Q Series Pumps for laboratory use. The pumps are small and light enough to be held in the palm of a hand, but powerful enough to provide discharge pressure up to 2.0 MPa and precise enough to configure flow rates at units of 0.01 mL/min. Smoothflow Q Series pumps provide a constant and stable flow, they are gentle on liquids, economical to operate, and laboratory-sized. The pump design allows for constant flow without pulsation, liquid leakage or changes in properties.
