The Keys to a Healthy Pump

The initial purchase price of a pump is just a small part of its actual life-cycle cost. Whether your pump application is municipal, commercial or industrial, the long-term costs can result in a much larger investment. Luckily, there are steps you can take to minimize this investment and increase your pump’s life expectancy by following proper installation and maintenance procedures.

Metering Pump Technology

Since the introduction of the metering pump, chemical feed for disinfection has been a primary application. As we move into the 21st Century, it again is time to review how we introduce chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite into our water systems. While the goal remains the same, changes in pump technology have been created to provide more accurate and consistent results. This article will discuss current metering pump technologies, proper pump sizing, installation and future enhancements.
