Motor and Pump Controls

Gorman-Rupp Integrinex Advanced

Integrinex Advanced lift station controls from Gorman-Rupp are custom engineered to meet unique system requirements. When equipped with FloSmart technology, the control system can detect a pump obstruction and run a cleaning cycle until the debris clears. Upon detection, the device initiates a cleaning operation without interfering with the operation of the pump station. When the cycle is complete, the pump is ready to return to normal operation. If the clog remains, the cleaning sequence repeats until the blockage is cleared. FloSmart helps maximize uptime while reducing maintenance costs. 419-755-1011;
