Understanding pipe friction loss, the benefits of reducing pipe friction loss, and how pipe friction loss can be reduced on an industrial pump application are all crucial factors to achieving the best performance and efficiency from an industrial pump. Friction loss is also important when choosing the most appropriate motor power for an industrial pump application to ensure that the pump can overcome the friction energy loss associated with a specific industrial pump application. For more on how to reduce pipe friction loss read the following article.

Industrial Hose Floats are commonly used as a flotation device for supporting hoses and cables at the surface of a waterway.  Hose floats are designed to keep hoses and cables from sinking below the surface of the water which can cause issues with the hose kinking, twisting, as well as many other issues due to not being visible at the surface of the water.  They are simple to install, UV stabilized, and come in bright colors that are easily visible, and ideally suited for dredging, mining, marine, and any other applications that involve jobs done on a waterway.

For centuries, farm animals have been essential for civilizations to survive, but nowadays they are destroying the environment. They have always left behind manure that releases the toxic greenhouse gas, methane gas, which is harmful to carbon levels. However, as the world’s population grows so does the number of animals and methane gases they produce. A single cow can consume about 50-60 pounds of dry food every day. That is a lot of manure they leave behind. And it is not just cows, pigs and chickens are also big contributors. So, farmers are finding ways to turn their waste into energy.

In most industrial operations, the coal ash comes as a slurry with decanted material and is conformed by a dense mixture. This slurry is highly abrasive and challenging to remove from a landfill or pond. Most of the time, the material is pumped into a pipeline that takes the material to a landfill or transport truck to dispose of…

No job is perfect. All industrial equipment has the potential for failure and things going wrong. Here’s how to troubleshoot the most common issues that happen with pumps and pump equipment. Sometimes pumps will wear out, often for a variety of factors. A lot of the wear and tear can be minimized through routine maintenance of critical components and replacing them when a problem is spotted. No Liquid Being Pumped Potential Cause How to Fix Pump is not primed Ensure pump and volute are completely full of liquid before operating the pump. If any air is trapped in…

How to Choose the Right Dewatering Pump for Your Application

The process of dewatering involves draining or pumping water from a mine shaft, construction site, or flooded building basement, industrial or city area. The removal of rain or groundwater in the construction and mining industries is essential to provide a dry base and water table stability to enable operations to proceed. Dewatering Methods Different methods of dewatering are not always interchangeable and each method has a fairly narrow range of applications. Dewatering systems in mines and on construction sites can be expensive to set up, so it is critical…

The Industrial Pumps, How They Power Modern Life

Pumps are necessary components inside an oil drilling rig. They’re designed to accelerate the transference of fluid from one location to another. Without pumps, refineries cannot operate, as oil displacement is essential to an oil rig’s entire operation. Below, we explore different types of pumps companies use in oil and gas downstream operations, their primary function, and the pros and cons of each model. Centrifugal Pump The most common type of pump found in the oil and gas industry is undoubtedly the centrifugal pump. Centrifugal pumps contain one or more…
