The company will feature several new pumps at the show
Franklin Electric Co. Inc., a manufacturer of complete pumping systems, will display new pumping products at the WEFTEC 2015 Exhibition and Conference in booths 3652 and 3654 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Sept. 28 to 30. Some of the new products featured in the booth include:
Designed for smaller municipal water and wastewater systems, the ProSeries-M M-2 peristaltic metering pump is suited for injecting the aggressive and/or viscous chemicals often used in water treatment. The Flex-A-Prene dual-tube assembly is now available. The long tube life and high-pressure capability (110 psi) reduce pump maintenance and replacement costs. The pump has an intelligent control system that permits connection to SCADA systems and other remote controllers.
The pumps are suitable for use outdoors or in wet environments
The Stenner Pump Co. announced a product upgrade to three metering pumps in the Econ pump line for outdoor use or wet environments. The pumps have been enhanced with a sliding cover over the control panel that is secured with a screw.
The Series UP6 gear pump, designed for small-scale water and process systems, is available with an optional microchip-based control circuit to control flow rate and prevent dry running. These self-priming electrical pumps provide flow rates up to 6.9 gpm at pressures up to 29 psi and are available in 12- or 24-VDC versions. Constructed with helical bronze gears, nickel-plated brass bodies and stainless steel shafts, the pumps are ideal for freshwater, diesel fuel and other compatible media.
The Inline 400 pressure boosting system is a compact and economical solution to most water pressure improvement needs. The system couples a pump and motor with simple flow-based controls to provide a typical water pressure boost of up to 40 psi, depending on the application’s need. The unit’s symmetrical design allows for easy installation, mounting either vertically or horizontally to fit within most existing plumbing configurations, including those with limited space.
Award winners will be announced April 23 at the Edison Awards Annual Gala
The Saajhi stepping pump by Xylem Inc. has been named a 2015 Award Finalist by the Edison Awards. The awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.
A personal water system is not just a handy thing to have; it is of the utmost importance when disaster strikes or for those embracing a self-sufficient lifestyle.
In the absence of fossil fuels or electricity, water extraction capabilities and a means to move water to where it is needed can be a logistical challenge. A portable, human-powered pump can be a crucial piece of equipment in the event of a natural disaster or in rural areas that lack electricity or other power sources.
Pumping solutions for disaster relief & rural living
PA Series stainless steel rotary vane pumps are ideal for a variety of applications, including beverage handling, RO, UF, cooling and temperature control, misting, and water purification and potable handling systems. The pumps are available in eight displacements with flow rates up to 144 gph. Weighing less than 3 lb, they can be connected to direct coupling motors with a stainless steel clamp.
The website includes the company's new logo, simplified navigation and technical support
Blue Angel Pumps redesigned its website at www.blueangelpumps.com with a new look and expanded selection of pump products designed for the professional market. In 2015, the brand has been taken to the national level.
With the invention of the oil burner in 1903, heating a home using oil became possible. By 1915, the first oil burner was installed in Boston; by 1917, contracts for oil to heat homes were pouring in. At the time, oil was a clean alternative to the messy and backbreaking work of shoveling and burning coal.
