Viking Pump: Pump System Protection
November 27, 2002
Viking Pump has introduced its new power load monitor, which can protect any motor-driven pump and pump system from either overload or underload conditions created by over-pressure, cavitation, empty tank or other problems. Suitable for both new installations and for upgrading existing units, the new monitor helps prevent downtime and reduce maintenance costs caused by pump and system problems. It provides high levels of accuracy and reliability, as well as simple installation. By monitoring both voltage and power, the unit measures the normal working load, then calculates and sets an automatic shutdown point for detected power changes. The load limit margin is adjustable to prevent unintentional stoppage.
