Now Available: Inline 1100 SpecPAK Pressure Boosting System

3/23/2018 12:00:00 AM

The Inline 1100 SpecPAK™ Pressure Boosting System provides a simplified way to select a packaged system for boosting water pressure in applications requiring more than one pump. The system connects easily to nearly any plumbing configuration, so instead of choosingInline 1100 Specpak 3 Stage Pallet System individual components within the system, contractors simply determine how much water is required to be boosted to the desired constant pressure output. The system comes properly packaged and ready for installation virtually anywhere with a product footprint small enough to be hung in a small utility closest.

Features & Benefits

  • Easy to expand the quantity of pumps after the initial installation should a building expansion or a water usage increase arise in the future
  • Quiet, all-in-one constant water pressure system contains the pump, motor, and drive for easy and versatile system integration
  • All stainless components for corrosion resistance and uncompromised water quality
  • Electrical design with multiple fuses to prevent surge damage to control electronics
  • Manifold and pump circuit piping sized to accommodate a full range of flows with minimal losses from hydraulic friction
  • Grooved plumbing connections reduce setup time and minimize external stress transfers between piping connections
  • Full port ball valves used to reduce pressure loss through fittings and maintain smooth, consistent water velocities through the system

Show-Floor Innovations
WWETT is the largest annual U.S. trade show for the wastewater industry, so once you make it through the doors, you’ll have visual access to some of the most innovative and proven products available today. We’re proud to be part of that group. Here are just a couple of the innovations you can learn about in our booth:

  • Enhanced FPS PowerSewer® System – A flexible, service friendly, and efficient system for residential and commercial applications. The basin’s internal C-Channel Franklin Electric Powersewer System Cutaway (1)assembly releases from the top of the unit, simplifying accessibility to and maintenance of its components. The updated tank design provides for easy access and replacement of all other internal components. The float tree is spring loaded and easily removable, with a lift handle to simplify pump removal. It features an isolated pump support that accommodates heavier pumps for expanded applications, and it is compatible with the entire line of Franklin Electric FPS 2 hp grinder pumps. 
  • FPS IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series – Delivers increased pump security and performance ideal for commercial and high-end residential applications. It 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.

Franklin Electric is pleased to announce the introduction of the FBC Series Single-Stage Horizontal Centrifugal Pumps to the F Series portfolio of products. The FBC Series features Franklin Electric FBC Series Centrifugal Pump Horizontal1close-coupled, electric-driven pumps thatFranklin Electric FBC Series Centrifugal Pump Horizontal1 utilize NEMA standard 56J-60 Hz threaded shaft motors with 316 stainless steel shaft extensions to form a rugged, compact unit.

Additional Features Include:

  • High efficiency performance design for reduced lifetime cost of operation
  • Volute can be rotated in 90-degree increments to simplify discharge plumbing
  • Suitable for either horizontal or vertical mounting for versatility of installation
  • Robust cast iron volute and motor bracket with integral mounting feet for ease of installation
  • Back pull-out design enables serviceability without the need to disconnect plumbing
  • 316 stainless steel impeller is suitable for handling a wide variety of fluids without corrosion or electrolysis and is resistant to the effects of cavitation
  • Mechanical seal, constructed of SiC/SiC/FKM/316 stainless steel (FKM silicon carbide), can withstand mild abrasives and is appropriate for handling a variety of fluids, including those containing hydrocarbons
  • Pumps are 100 percent wet tested at the factory to ensure quality and reliability

The FBC Series is offered in both 2-pole (3600 rpm) and 4-pole (1800 rpm) versions. At 3600 rpm, the FBC Series can be used in any application requiring flows of 50-200 gpm and pressures ranging from 15-30 psi, such as turf irrigation or commercial pressure boosting. At 1800 rpm, the pumps produce 40-110 gpm at heads of only 7-22 feet, making them ideal for water feature, water transfer, or fuel oil transfer applications. Models operating at 3600 rpm are available with motors having both open drip proof (ODP) and totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) enclosures, while 1800 rpm models will have TEFC motor enclosures only.
