  • Peristaltic Pumps - A lot more than just heavy duty

    By design, the peristaltic pump is ideal for the dependable handling of abrasive, corrosive, viscous, high density and high solid content fluids. It thrives in those applications where other types of pump fail. Water and waste water industries, mining and chemical processing are all prime markets for this workhorse. But being equal to the tough demands of these applications is far from its only ...

  • The Need for a Total View of Water Networks

    The water industry is not short of software offerings, and so the arguments in favour of yet another software program had better be very good indeed.

  • Determining System demand case study

    The system demand is a function of water usage and location, expressed as gallon(s) per minute (gpm) and pound(s) per square inch gauge (psig), respectively. Usage or flow (gpm) can be determined using one of several methods (refer to Table IV.1.1 for typical demands): 1) Pressure required, as stated in pounds per square inch or PSI, is the pressure needed for the fixtures in the house or ...

  • Energy savings: VFD versus CSV case study

    The two most common ways to produce constant pressure are Variable Frequency Drives or VFD’s, and Cycle Stop Valves or CSV’s. The end result is the same in that the system sees a steady or constant pressure, as the flow rates required vary from small to large. However, these two systems control the pump in completely different ways. Variable Frequency Drives or ...
