Valmet Flow Control Flowrox FXM

Flowrox FXM metering pumps from Valmet Flow Control are suitable for but not limited to chemical dosing applications that require accurate metering. FXM2 and FXM3 series pumps have only one wear-resistant part (tube assembly) in contact with corrosive or abrasive mediums. The pumps have a low consumption of spare parts, which allows reduced maintenance and downtime to improve process performance and provides accurate dosing. They ensure accurate dosing by the positive displacement of the tube bore with zero slip that produces the same volume on every cycle. There is no variation due to the discharge pressure condition. The compression points of the tube act as a self-cleaning check valve without clogging. This helps eliminate the risk of vapor lock. They have expanded logic programming, functionality and have a higher pumping capacity. Other features include contactless external leak sensors for tube failure detection. They have upgraded motors and control circuits to ensure accuracy even at the lowest speed. 678-772-9584;

The high-resolution, 5-inch color display offers a user-friendly operating interface with a simple touch-control and intuitive navigation menu that can be set to multiple languages. Use four analog outputs (0/4-20 mA) or the network capability to transfer measured values to a web browser or a telemaintenance point. A programmable interval timer can be used to set automatic alerts for wear-related sensor change. 800-554-2762;

Smith & Loveless Force Main Sync

Force main pressures vary; and without accounting for the variable conditions, reduced service life and a multitude of other issues arise. These phenomena result in impeller and volute erosion, reduced bearing and seal life, excessive pump noise and vibration. Force Main Sync from Smith & Loveless monitors hydraulics in the common force main to keep pumping at the required flow rate. Using a PLC touchscreen human-machine interface, a variable-frequency drive and a force main sensor, it constantly senses force main pressure and automatically adjusts the VFD to maintain a constant flow rate, no matter how many stations are online. 800-898-9122;
