Encore® Pump Product Line Certified To NSF/ANSI 61 For Most Common Water Treatment Chemical Applications

Encore® 700 metering pumps, recognized throughout the industry for their longevity, reliability and accuracy, are now certified to NSF/ANSI 61 standards for use in drinking water applications. For decades, Encore® metering pumps have been the go-to favorite of plant operators and designers. In a world where “throwaway” metering pumps have become acceptable, it is not uncommon to observe the Encore® 700 flagship pump operating in demanding chemical feed environments for decades. Given the pump’s longevity and the large number of legacy installations, it was a logical choice to pursue NSF certification to provide our customers with more choices. Now, the same high-quality pumps manufactured at UGSI Chemical Feed’s Vineland, New Jersey facilities are certified to NSF/ANSI 61 for the following commonly used drinking water treatment chemicals:

  • Ammonium Hydroxide (60%)
  • Calcium Hypochlorite (10%)
  • Sodium Fluoride (4.0%)
  • Sodium Hydroxide (50%)
  • Sodium Hypochlorite (15%)
  • Activated Carbon (15%)
  • Calcium Hydroxide (30%)

The NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects is the American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) certification for drinking water system components. The standard sets health effects criteria for water system components in an effort to minimize negative effects on the health and safety of the public and the environment. The NSF/ANSI 61 certification is available for the chemicals listed above on the Encore® 700 simplex, double simplex and duplex configurations.

With the Encore® pump line dosing any liquid or slurry at operating capacities of 0.001 gph to 330 gph (660 gph with duplex or double simplex configuration) and at pressures up to 232 psi, the precision of the non-loss-of-motion pumping profile is an added benefit. Recently expanded from the operator favorite Encore® 700 diaphragm pump to a host of additional Encore® pump configurations, UGSI Chemical Feed has built a metering pump selection tool to help users determine the best pump choice given inputs such as chemical to be metered, flow and pressure.

Encore® 700 Product Features:

  • Longevity of the Encore® 700 metering pump is industry recognized and backed by a five-year warranty - this is not a “throwaway” chemical metering pump
  • Non-loss-of-motion feature provides smooth chemical feed profile
  • Quick ship from factory – most configurations (and parts) can ship in 24-48 hours
  • On-line sizing tools allows for quick and easy sizing by operators and engineers
