Kindle Fire Winner at RETA Show

Eric Rice of Industrial Refrigeration Services in Visalia, CA is the proud winner of Cornell Pump’s Kindle Fire Raffle at RETA 2016. Congratulations Eric! If you didn’t happen to attend RETA this year, you can still learn about Cornell Pump’s Arctic King series.

Prominently featured at the show, the Arctic King offers operation at 1,200/1800 RPM –at least half the speed of other hermetic refrigeration pumps. This allows for better NPSHr, less required refrigerant, and longer bearing life. And the Arctic King is flange-to-flange replaceable with Cornell’s long lived and popular CB open drive series.   Learn more about the Arctic King.

Centex Visit

img_9022CENTEX Africa had a contingent of pump professionals in for a Pump School the last couple days. Classroom presentations from Cornell Pumps PE certified engineers, as well as knowledgeable sales staff, was augmented by hands on learning in the factory.

Cornell Pump is getting ready for Pump School 2017 in January. You can learn about pump hydraulics, efficiencies, terminology, and more—and get great practical learning. At $99* for the two day seminar it’s a steal. Learn more here.

Cornell at RETA 2016

Cornell Pump Company is showcasing its latest refinements in refrigeration pump technology this week at the RETA conference in Las Vegas. Among the highlights are a new, multi-stage hermetic pump model with built-in bearing monitoring that can operate as low as 10 GPM with no cavitation. Come down to the show and greet the crew!

Replacing Packing in a Pump

Ever wondered how best to replacing packing in a pump? Wondered about the right alignment for a lantern ring?  Cornell Pump helps end users address these maintenance issues in the latest edition of our how-to video series.

Our video channel includes numerous other videos on the operation, maintenance, and features/benefits of Cornell pumps.

Wear Ring Replacement Video

Cornell Pump produces how-to videos, explaining successful ways to operate and maintain pumps. We recently added a short video on how to install and remove a wear ring. Many of our pumps employ wear rings, and this method can safely and effectively help you change them. Watch the new video below:

Our video page includes numerous other videos on operation, maintenance, and features/benefits of Cornell pumps. You can find additional videos on the Cornell YouTube Channel.

Cornell at WEFTEC This Week!

photo1Cornell Pump is displaying at WEFTEC in New Orleans. Open 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Cornell Pump is in Booth #1529, today until Wednesday. Stop by to see the Waste Warrior cutter (link), designed for aggressive ragging.  The Cornell booth  also features our STX line of self-priming pumps (link), designed for high efficiency and long life. Plus see our  Submersible (link) and Immersible (link) lines of pumps for municipal applications.  The Immersible line is specially designed to use readily accessible motors, while being able to be submerged for up 30′ for two weeks, and the submersible line is a premium efficiency design.

We’d love to see you and answer questions!

Keys to Using Pumps In Series

keystousingpumpsinseriesPossible Reasons/Scenarios in Which to Use Pumps in Series:

  • When a wide range of flow is required
  • When the pumps discharge into a common manifold
  • When the system head requirement is greater than can be supplied by one pump
  • When system pressure requirements vary

 

Keys to using pumps in series:

  • Same flows, heads are additive
  • Not limited to identical pumps
  • Continuously rising curves are best
  • Check literally everything (seal limits, pump pressure limits, etc.)

 

Possible Advantages:

  • Maintain high pump efficiency with greatly varying heads
  • May be able to use some present equipment
  • Space pumps throughout system
  • Reduces pipe pressures
  • Reduces axial load

 

Possible Disadvantages:

  • Multiple pumps may be more expensive
  • Larger pumps may offer higher efficiency at design point
  • More accessory equipment required
