New Franklin Electric Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series Provides Added Barrier of Pump Protection
Franklin Electric now offers the FPS IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series that delivers increased pump security and performance ideal for commercial and high-end residential applications. The IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series utilizes two mechanical seals, coupled with sensor probe and seal leak detection circuitry in the panel, to provide added pump protection that can extend the overall pump life.
If water enters the oil chamber, a light in the control panel will illuminate and indicate that the first seal requires replacement. The second seal continues to protect the pump so that it can maintain full functionality until the first seal can be changed. Upon the replacement of the first seal, the pump can be put back in service at peak performance levels.
The Franklin Electric IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series offers multiple pumps that can operate on nominal voltages ranging from 208 V and 230 V in one configuration (single-phase and 3-phase), while also featuring multiple models in 460 V and 575 V 3-phase options for applications where higher voltage is required. The Series’ powerful motor and construction are designed to handle the tough demands of low pressure sewage applications, utilizing the same reliable patented cutter system at 414,000 cuts per minute. These new units incorporate a non-clogging impeller staged for efficient pumping of sewage slurries with a shut-off head of 130 feet. These pumps are equipped to handle the demands of grinding domestic sewage whether as a replacement pump or a packaged system.
The IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series employs a powerful 2 hp single-phase, 3,450 rpm with capacitor start/run motor with built-in overload protection to prevent over-current and over-temperature damage while providing higher starting torque that allows for mid grinds. A higher and larger motor shaft also reduces deflection. Other design features include a corrosion-resistant brass impeller that minimizes downtime and maintenance and an epoxy-coated cast iron finish for corrosion resistance and durability.
