Benefits Of Using Pumps With Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) adjust the pressure or flow on pumps to meet the actual demand. VFDs control the frequency of electricity delivered to pumps and fans. VFDs can provide significant power savings by controlling the rotational speed and frequency of electrical power supplied to the pump motor. VFDs are …

How to Achieve Precision, Accuracy, and Flow Rate with Metering Pumps

Diaphragm metering pumps provide precision and accurate dosing to many applications that require consistent flow. While precision and accuracy are very similar definitions referring to the quality of a measurement, they provide different indications. Precision refers to the degree to which a process or instrument will repeat the same value, …

Pumping Sodium Hypochlorite: Chemical Dosing Solutions

Sodium hypochlorite, also known as liquid bleach, remains the number one water disinfectant.  The main concern when sodium hypochlorite is used is ensuring that there are no leaks which can risk dangerous skin exposure. Another concern is the propensity of sodium hypochlorite to cause off-gassing when being pumped. Challenges When …

How Sealless Pumps Meet VOC Sustainability Requirements

Sealless magnetic drive pumps provide many advantages including improved safety, productivity, and compliance in many fluid transfer applications. Two sets of magnets transfer power from the motor to the impeller of the pump to move fluid. Because the driven magnet is contained inside the impeller assembly, a solid barrier separates …
