Progressive cavity pumps
seepex has a new computer program that calculates the savings realized when users switch from an air-operated double diaphragm pump to an electrically operated progressive cavity (PC) pump. The program is available in Visual Basic for personal computers running Microsoft Windows 98 or higher, or for PDAs that run Palm OS 3.1 or higher. The program uses actual manufacturer's performance data and generally accepted formulae. Users provide the required fluid flow and pressure, number of desired stages for the PC pump, pneumatic system pressure, normal hours of operation, AODD pump inlet size, cost per kW hour for electricity, number of compressor stages and the estimated efficiency of the compressor.

Dixon Valve & Coupling has published a new Hose Assembly Pressure Recommendations wall poster, which is available free of charge. The poster contains useful information pertaining to the components that make up hose assemblies, including the coupling, clamp, ferrule and hose. Even if the working pressure is printed on the hose, often the fitting will limit the effective working pressure of the assembly. The poster brings all of these variable together in an easy-to-follow format.
