Filter Pump Announces New Line of Stainless Steel Filter Systems

Filter Pump Industries proudly announces a new line of Stainless Steel filter systems that offer outstanding durability and corrosion resistance across a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications.

Constructed from 304SS or 316SS, these housings can either accept cartridge or bag filters as needed for varying specifications.

Filter Pump SS Filter Systems feature a band clamp closure that makes cartridge/bag change-outs quick and easy.

The vertical sealless pump series PSS is offered along with horizontal centrifugal pump with single seals or optional “HK” Double Seal arranged with a thermal transfer oil-filled seal chamber where oil lubricates and cools the mechanical seals. The “HK” feature eliminates continual flush water from entering the waste stream.

The pumps’ Seal Expansion Chamber provides a cavity with an air space to expand into during the pump operation. Available with Silicon Carbide stationary seats for improved hardness, wear resistance, and superior thermal properties over the older Ceramic components.

Filter Pump’s quality workmanship and design assure superior, consistent and reliable performance!

Solutions for Efficient Metal Finishing Operations

EDUCTOR SOLUTION AGITATION IN METAL FINISHING APPLICATIONS

Solution agitation is essential for the mechanical scouring action to maintain solution homogeneity.  This sounds very simple, but as in all real-world situations, things aren’t as simple as they first appear.

A complication with air agitation systems in metal finishing applications is that it encourages toxic gassing of the solution to rise in the bath, bursting at the solution level.  Gases form at the plated surface during electroplating. Air rapidly moves gases to the solution surface where they release creating a toxic environment for the tank operators, causing them to wear protective respirators.

Recent guidelines established by OSHA and the SCAQMD are addressing the need for change to prevent this condition from happening.  The solution – Penductor Eductors by Penguin.

Eductors work on the venturi principal.  A pump propels the primary solution under pressure at a high velocity through an eductor nozzle mounted inside a flow-through venturi bell, which induces a large secondary stream that is designed to prevent clogging and internal buildup and drastically reduce, or eliminate aeration. This means that the eductor can pull in or “entrain” up to four additional gallons of surrounding solution for every one gallon pumped through it.

The liquid pumped through the eductor can be channeled towards the plated surface where it flushes the surface with fresh solution thus preventing gases to reach the surface.

The number of eductors to install is dependent on tank turnovers, which we may define as the number of times the entire liquid contents of a tank are pumped through the eductor(s) per hour.

Eductor configurations and mounting are unlimited.  However, there are some general rules that should be considered to include manifolds which may be simplex, duplex  or multiplex (more than two)  Manifolds must be sufficient diameter to maintain low friction losses and manifold ends must be capped.

Eductors are available in a wide range of materials: 316SS, Polypro, CPVC and PVDF

Eductor systems may be installed:
(1)  Directly onto the outlet side of a filter chamber in series using one pump.
(2)  Directly into a bypass line in parallel to the filter chamber, using one pump.
(3)  Directly into the discharge line from a dedicated pump.

NEW RULES ON ENERGY-EFFICIENT MOTORS
U.S. Department of Energy Integral Horsepower Motor Rule
The U.S. Department of Energy passed a final rule, effective June 2016, that covers 1 – 500 HP (0.75 – 370 kW) three-phase electric motors. This new law will supersede the existing Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
The motors regulated under expanded scope meet the following nine characteristics:
1. Is a single speed motor,
2. Is rated for continuous duty (MG 1) operation or for duty type S1 (IEC),
3. Contains a squirrel-cage (MG 1) or cage (IEC) rotor,
4. Operated on polyphase alternating current (AC) 60-hertz sinusoidal line power,
5. Has 2-, 4-, 6-, or 8-pole configuration,
6. Is rated 600 volts or less,
7. Have a three or four digit NEMA frame size (or IEC metric equivalent), including
those designs between two consecutive NEMA frame sizes (or IEC metric
equivalent) or an enclosed 56 NEMA Frame size (or IEC metric equivalent).
8. Has no more than 500 horsepower, but greater than or equal to 1 horsepower (or
kilowatt equivalent), and
9. Meets all the performance requirements of a NEMA design A, B or C electric
motor or an IEC design N or H electric motor.
Filter Pump Industries, in anticipation of the upcoming ruling, has redesigned their motors and are currently in compliance with the rule.

NATIONAL TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS AND SONS TO WORK DAY

Nstional take your sons and daughters to work day

national take your son and daughters to work day – Filter Pump Industries

National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is recognized on the fourth Thursday in April each year.  This annual event is an educational program in the United States and Canada where parents take their children to work with them for one day so that their children can learn about their parent’s occupations. This year Filter Pump Industries had 3 participants from two families. The children ranged in age from 10 to 6 years of age.

Each child who participated was excused for the day from their regular school attendance. Prior to the event, the children presented permission slips from their local schools to their parents.  The parents then presented the slips to their company supervisors for approval.

As you can see, there was not only learning to be had, we also had a lot of fun! Briana, Brennan, and Humberto learned what a typical work day looks like for each of their parents, and had the chance to see what life could be like after they finish their education.

The visiting children learn about safety and quality control in the production area. This is where the magic happens at Filter Pump Industries!

In the picture above, the children had the opportunity to see the most exciting part of our office, the production area where all of our products are made. Here they learned about all that goes in to making a top quality filter pump, and how our team must apply their past education in order to do their job correctly. Visiting our on-site production room helped the children learn why classes like math and science are so important, and see firsthand that what they learn in school can be applied to life outside the classroom.

All in all, it was a successful day! Having the opportunity to teach children about the possibilities that are available after finishing their education was a great honor. In addition, the children were able to see what a typical day is like for their parents, which was a great family bonding experience for those who participated. We can’t wait for next year’s visit!
