HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Blue-White® Industries has been awarded a patent on its new Component Control System, according to a press release.

U.S. Patent 8,639,363 was awarded for the system, a method used to control two or more positive displacement pumps in a system, the release reported.

The Component Control System ensures that two or more positive displacement pumps, operating in a system together, will run only if all pumps in the system are running, noted the release.

This can reduce costs by eliminating the need for separate pump controllers for each unit, continued the release, a feature that will be particularly important when failure of one pump to meter chemical could have a damaging effect on the entire process.

According to the release, this new patented feature is currently available on Blue-White’s Flex-Pro® A3 and A4 Metering Pumps, and Proseries-M® models M-3 and M-4 Metering Pumps.
