Water hammer has the potential to cause significant damage to pumping systems. Most in the pumping industry have a tale to tell about burst or collapsed pipes, or broken or damaged valves, pressure gauges and even pumps.
This white paper looks at ways to prevent this costly damage and extend the life of pumping systems.
Our decades of experience in applying soft start to motor control, and working with partners across a broad array of industries and applications, have shown us how soft start can provide very real benefits to applications in nearly every industry.
We've pulled that knowledge together into a guide of easy-to-read quick reference infographics, helping you understand where soft start brings the most benefit for your application.
It’s our time. The world of IT and computing has had all the business press in recent years, but industrial applications, from manufacturing to pumping, from mining to oil & gas, are starting to re-emerge as the exciting areas as technologies converge and new opportunities appear. This new era for industrial systems has been called “Industry 4.0”. What does this actually mean and what are the implications for industrial motor control?
The starting function of motors is often misunderstood, impacting motor performance and compromising energy efficiency. This series of technical white papers provides a detailed introduction to the theory of starting motors, based on the work of electronics design expert Mark Empson, co-founder of AuCom Electronics.
We get lots of questions regarding how to select and implement the best soft start solution. In our 'Where Do I Start?' eBook we've compiled the answers to a number of the most common topics including maximum cable lengths, inside delta (six-wire) connection, type 1 and type 2 circuit protection, power factor correction and more.
Read our energy efficient pumping white paper to learn more about variable speed control vs. cyclical control, with a focus on energy efficient control methods for both real-time flow control and time-averaged flow control.
