  • Controlling the Flow Capacity of a Metering Pump

    Since a metering pump is usually a positive displacement pump there are two possible ways of controlling the flow capacity. The first one is by adjusting the volume of liquid displaced per stroke of the pump and the second is by adjusting the speed of the strokes. I. Stroke Length – control the displacement volume per stroke II. Speed of Strokes per minute Stroke Length ...

  • A robust approach based on time variable trigger levels for pump control

    An approach for the control of a pumping plant feeding a tank at the inlet of a water distribution system is presented. The approach is aimed at minimizing the energy costs by maximizing pumping during off-peak electricity tariff periods. It is based on trigger levels which are variable during the day according to a prefixed pattern in order to ensure that the water level in the elevated tank ...

  • Fuzzy maximum power extraction control for a photovoltaic water pumping system

    AC loads present a delicate matter for photovoltaic systems, and this is because of the photovoltaic panel's operating point, which moves randomly according to irradiance changes; in this case, almost of photovoltaic water pumping systems use a DC–DC converter to ensure either the maximum power extracted from PV panel or the load needs. For AC motor pumps, an inverter must follow this chopper. ...

  • Controlling the addition of Chlorine into a Process

    There are several methods for controlling the addition of chlorine into a process. These methods include flow proportional injection, ORP (oxidation reduction potential) or a residual chlorine analyzer. Each method measures a different process characteristic. Depending on the specific type of process being controlled, there generally is a best choice for controlling the injection of either ...

  • Principal Noise Pollution Control

    Sources of noise in industrial machinery and processes are : Rotors, Gears, Turbulent Fluid Flow, Impact Processes, Electrical Machines, Internal Combustion Engines, Pneumatic Equipment, Crushing, Blasting, Pumps and Compressors. The most desirable method of controlling a noise pollution is to minimize the noise at the source. This generally means modifying existing equipment and structures or ...

  • Control of Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Instrumentation, control and automation (ICA) of wastewater treatment systems and sewer networks have attracted much attention since the early 1970s. The developments during the last four decades in on-line instrumentation, computer technology, process understanding and subsequent model development, and control methods have been powerful driving forces for advanced control making ICA ever more ...

  • Syringe Pumps vs Peristaltic Pumps - Case Study

    Introduction Different applications require a pump, among all the options peristaltic and syringe pumps, are the most suitable. However, selection of the best is always a disjunctive. In general terms, laboratory and industrial process use peristaltic pumps. A user needs to know more about the systems and proper comparison of these technologies. In some cases is difficult to understand ...

  • Principles of Solids Control

    Although the use of drilling fluids within the HDD / trenchless industry is still relatively new, recent trends suggest that this standard is shifting as solids control is one of the most important phases in the drilling process. This shift is due to a growing awareness that drilling fluid maintenance and disposal can become exponential problems as they are both harmful to the environment and ...

  • What is a Syringe Pump?

    A syringe pump is a type of infusion pump originally developed to help administer drugs to patients in a controlled manner. Early attempts to construct infusion pumps were made in the 19th century. However, the first infusion device was introduced in the 1950s to be used in chemotherapy. In the 1970s, the development of ambulatory infusion technology enabled the pumps to be used in research; ...

  • White paper - Chemical feed control

    The controls, alarms and external contacts are shown on the drawings. As the amount of chemical needed to neutralize the wastewater varies exponentially from neutral pH 7, special consideration must be given to control overshooting the pH. Chemicals, especially viscous caustic soda, must be fully mixed in the compartment before more is added. Rather than modulating the pump settings, the pump is ...

  • Industrial Pump Inspection

    An industrial pump service and remanufacturing company had two goals in mind when they went shopping for a borescope. First, the scope had to be easy to use and portable enough to take on service calls. Second, it had to have four-way camera articulation in order to steer navigate the pipes and small through-holes that are commonly found in industrial pump applications. They found exactly what ...

  • Odour control on waste water treatment plants and pumping stations using DMT biotrickling filtration

    Lengthy detention times and warm weather / climate leads to septic waste water producing copious amounts of not only hydrogen sulphide, but also ammonia, organic sulphides, mercaptans, bringing numerous odour complaints on waste water treatment plants ( WWTP’s ) and pumping stations. An odour abatement unit therefore will have to treat not only hydrogen sulphide, but also other pollutants ...
