PUMPS AND DRIVES RESOURCES

  • Times have changed in Washington state’s Skagit County, perched just 25 miles south of the Canadian border. Skagit County, which extends across 1,920 square miles, maintains one of the largest and most diverse agricultural communities west of the Cascade mountain range. Over 90 different crops are grown in this fertile valley, including blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, tulips, daffodils, pickling cucumbers, and specialty potatoes.

  • The growing water scarcity in the western United States has led to an increased dependency on groundwater from wells. With regulatory pressure on groundwater, such as California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), and the increased cost associated with the energy required to extract water, it is a good time to discuss the efficiency of wells.

  • Having properly sized, configured, and maintained pumps is important for running an efficient water distribution system. But pump performance analytics are equally important for saving money through optimized treatment plant and distribution system operations. Here is how one utility is using real-time analytics to manage in-plant operations as well as the long-distance relationship between its remote water treatment facility and city distribution system.

  • The devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy on New York City and the Northeast U.S. surprised some, but the people at Xylem were not among them. Xylem’s dedicated water professionals stood ready to fight the surging seawaters and torrential rainfall that threatened thousands of homes and commercial properties in Sandy’s path.

  • Mayfield Creek in Fulton County, New York, is an arterial body that flows out of Great Sacandaga Lake for approximately four miles through farmland and the upstate countryside. At several points along the way, the creek runs through culverts and under bridge structures, as highways and local roads intersect its path. During an inspection, it became clear that one major culvert – 140 feet long, 15 feet tall and running under heavily traveled Route 30 – had outlived its expected life. The 10-guage corrugated steel structure was deteriorated and needed to be repaired – with as little disruption to Route 30 traffic patterns as possible.

  • The Owasco Outlet in Auburn, New York, is a waterway that flows from the north end of Owasco Lake through five counties before connecting to the Seneca River. Over time, portions of the Owasco Outlet were contaminated with coal tar. A byproduct of burning coal, the coal tar had been buried throughout the grounds of a former manufactured gas plant located along the waterway during the 1800s, eventually leaching into the surrounding sediment.

  • There is never a good time for a municipality to encounter problems with its water supply. But during the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak – when handwashing and sanitation are essential to maintaining public health – a reduction in water supply to residents quickly becomes critical.

  • Energy-saving pumps will be ever more present in 2021 as investment in eco-friendly infrastructure continues to grow.

PUMPS AND DRIVES SOLUTIONS

  • DWT – Deep Well Turbine (Borehole) Pumps

    Multistage lineshaft vertical turbine pumps are ideal deep well pumping. Lineshaft vertical turbines are configured such that the hydraulic components are submerged into the pumped fluid while the motor is located above ground, making it easy to access electrical components.

  • Single Stage End Suction

    Goulds Water Technology combines over 155 years of pump experience with the most modern design and manufacturing systems—deep drawn metal fabrication, laser cutting, laser welding, precision casting, and worldwide design systems—plus a total commitment to quality based on full performance testing of every pump we make. With end suction centrifugal capacities from 4 gpm to 5000 gpm, Goulds Water Technology offers the power of experience to more than 100 nations of the world.

  • 5”-11” 316SS Submersible Turbine Pumps

    All 316 SS construction fro 5″ to 11″ bowl assembly to fit into 6″ thru 12″ well. Flow up to 1500 GPM and 400 ft TDH.

  • e-SV Series Stainless Steel Vertical Multi-Stage Pumps

    The e-SV fabricated vertical multi-stage pump is an energy saving, non-priming pump coupled to a standard premium-efficient motor. It’s built to withstand a variety of, mechanically aggressive and high temperature liquids, and is designed to extend uptime and help reduce lifecycle costs in a wide range of demanding applications.

  • VIS – Submersible Vertical Turbine (Borehole) Pumps

    Ideal for deep set applications where use of lineshaft pumps is impractical. Complete unit is installed underground resulting in space-saving, quiet operation. Long life / low maintenance – no lubrication, alignment.
