Pumps/Pump Components

Armstrong Fluid Technology E.2
The E.2 pumpless volute kit from Armstrong Fluid Technology is designed to upgrade, renew or replace all working parts of E Series model circulators. The kits are suitable for hydronic fluid and potable water applications and are compatible with the original E series.

Blue Angel Pumps AdvanTEXT
The AdvanTEXT cellular flood and sump pump monitoring system from Blue Angel Pumps notifies up to three people via text message of high water, power outage and when normal water levels have been restored. The system plugs into a GFCI outlet near the sump pit and is backed up by four AA batteries. Using M2M cellular technology, the system works without a landline, Internet or home Wi-Fi. A dual float system attaches to the discharge pipe in the sump pit. If water rises above the sump pump, the system sends out a text alert. If water continues to rise and lifts the second float, another text message is sent. The monitoring system includes a status light (solid green ready), low battery light (flashing), on/off/mute button, test button, float sensor light that blinks when activated, and lower and upper sensor lights. Combined with a battery-powered sump pump backup system, it provides around-the-clock monitoring and emergency backup. 800/237-0987; www.waynewatersystems.com

Franklin Electric VR Series
VR Series vertical, stainless steel multistage pumps from Franklin Electric deliver clean water under pressure. These booster pumps are available in 792-, 1,321-, 2,378-, 3,963-, 5,283-, 7,925-, 11,888-, 17,171- and 25,096 gph options with a flow range up to 600 gpm and 750 feet total dynamic head. Each has all 316 stainless steel hydraulic components for durability, efficiency and performance in corrosive water applications. Impellers and diffuser stages are fabricated from heavy-gauge stainless steel. The oversized ball bearing/coupler assembly eliminates the need for stack height adjustment and supports the axial thrust load. The elimination of axial thrust allows the pumps to use industry-standard motors instead of the high-thrust motors. 800/701-7894; www.franklinwater.com.

Grundfos CU 352
The CU 352 intuitive graphical interface controller makes the Hydro MPC BoosterpaQ fully integrated and compact pressure-boosting system from Grundfos user-friendly while ensuring efficient operation. The system offers multiple configurations, with up to six pumps in parallel to accommodate water supply systems, as well as industrial and irrigation applications. Using actual pump-curve data, the intelligent controller helps to optimize energy consumption by controlling/staging the number of pumps in operation, as well as the speed of the individual pumps, in order to continually adjust the performance of the system to variations in demand. A large 3 1/2- by 4 5/8-inch intuitive color screen ensures easy operation, just as the startup wizard facilitates commissioning. The controller communicates via the most common Fieldbus protocols and has a built-in Ethernet connection, enabling remote access via a Web browser. 888/237-1960; www.grundfos.com.
