Motor and Pump Controls


Pulsafeeder’s XAE Stroke Length Controller provides fast and accurate response when there are changes to chemical dosing demands of diaphragm metering pumps. With microprocessor-based digital logical and a brushless stepper motor, pump chemical delivery response is nearly instantaneous. Onboard push-button self-calibration means that startup and commissioning is finished in a matter of minutes. It is fault-tolerant and self-correcting after power loss or system fault, with settings automatically maintained and monitored even without power. A full array of dry contacts and 4-20mA inputs/outputs allows it to communicate and integrate seamlessly with system controls to monitor pump ready-to-run or fault conditions status and shut down in the event of system alarm or diaphragm failure. Fast operation and service means operators can spend less time troubleshooting pumps and more time monitoring system efficiency and know the status of key aspects of pump performance and health easily and remotely. 585-292-8000; 



Asahi/America offers HDPE manifolds that can be prefabricated to maximize quality control, system accuracy and speed-of-installation. From water distribution to chemical dosing, custom HDPE manifolds have been installed as an alternative to stainless steel or PVC, given the robust material benefits HDPE can provide. HDPE material costs, including pipe and molded fittings, are less expensive than stainless steel, lightweight and corrosion resistant. HDPE is thermally fused providing leak-free joints that are as strong or stronger than the pipe itself. In addition, HDPE is NSF-61 certified, making it safe for potable drinking water applications and resistant to microbial contamination. HDPE offers similar or better chemical compatibility to stainless steel or PVC. Ideal applications include water filtration, water distribution, wastewater treatment, waste treatment, potable water, and chemical dosing. Asahi/America offers main pipe sizes 4 to 12 inches and outlets 1 to 4 inches IPS. Custom sizing is also available. 800-343-3618;

Smith & Loveless EVERLAST Pump Stations offer higher ease of operation and maintenance, higher level of operator safety, longer lasting service life, pump technology that eliminates clogging from flushables and lower life cycle costs than conventional pump stations. All pumping, mechanical and electrical components are above the wet well with immediate access at ground level. This means that the STAR ONE Non-Clog Pumps reside at ground level out of the sewage and always dry. Likewise, all the valves, piping and controls reside also above the wet well, meaning that inspection of the entire pump station can be accomplished in seconds by simply opening the hooded enclosure. 800-898-9122; 


Thompson Pump and Manufacturing’s 4JSC series pumps provide a method for backing up wastewater lift stations. These high-efficiency, solids-handling bypass pumps are customized to provide automatic bypass pumping during any emergency event. They can be permanently installed at municipal lift stations, in lieu of a diesel generator, to provide 100% redundancy to the primary, electric-powered pumps. With a wide range of flow and pressure capabilities, it can be a solution for lift stations that experience inflow and infiltration or need maintenance. These pumps incorporate the Enviroprime System, allowing them to prime automatically from a dry state and do so by evacuating only air from the suction piping. This priming system prevents any wastewater from exiting the pump while operating. In addition, it will operate intermittently, allowing the pump to start only when needed, resulting in lower fuel consumption, less onsite fuel storage required, and reduced operating costs. 800-767-7310;


Self-priming Chopper Pumps from Vaughan are designed to be easily accessed outside of the wet well while pumping waste solids at heavy consistencies, without plugging or dewatering of the solids.
