Q.What are “nonclog pumps,” and in what applications are they used?

Last month’s column described the process of creating an energy cost balance sheet for a piping system (see Figure 1).

The triplex lift station arrangement provides a solution for grape wastewater processing.

In my June column on pump and motor testing, I said that three-phase voltage variation and unbalance can have a significant effect on motor insulation life.

Customers’ focus on efficiency and new techniques drives better ice quality in water and beverage markets.

The global water crisis claims 5,500 lives each day—more than war, natural disasters, AIDS or hunger. It is a sobering problem but not an impossible one to solve.

SKF hosted their annual Technical Press Day on June 9, 2014, at Penske Headquarters in Mooresville, North Carolina. This was my first event to cover for Pumps & Systems, so I had a lot to learn! Here are a just a few of the things I picked up at press day.

Columns

In my July 2014 column, I demonstrated that three-phase voltage variation can significantly affect several alternating current (AC) motor characteristics. If that variation is large, it can also reduce motor life.

When the pump selection process starts, the required flow of the is often the only known variable for an application. For example, a system must move 2,000 gallons per minute (gpm) from a holding tank to another tank or process.

A reciprocating power pump, as depicted in Figure 1, is a displacement machine. It has characteristics that are different than a centrifugal pump.
