Pump System Includes Auto-Fill Option When Flooded Suction is Unavailable

Nov. 5, 2013
Key features include single, dual and redundant pre-engineered pump systems.

Walchem, IWAKI America recently launched the Walchem Pump System. The pumps are available in four configurations. They accommodate a range of needs, from the economical basic systems to full-featured redundant backup systems.

The core of every system begins with a rugged, chemical resistant pump stand molded of UV stabilized linear low density polyethylene. Components added to the stand to create the various systems include calibration columns, back pressure/anti-siphon valves, pressure relief valves, pulsation dampeners, gauges, ball valves and Y-strainers

Key features include single, dual and redundant pre-engineered pump systems that are factory assembled and hydrostatically tested and compact. The auto-fill option provides the plumbing and valves to enable the metering pump to fill the calibration column for applications when flooded suction is not available. Floor-mount design standard, but it is also wall mountable and has a large capacity spill containment with drain designed into each stand.

Typical applications are cooling tower/boiler water treatment, pH adjustment, chlorination, sanitary cleaning, drinking water treatment (fluoride/pH), closed loop systems and scrubber replenishment.
