March 25th – Carter Pump is a leading OEM manufacturer of pumps and pump parts with worldwide applications. Now a new IMD Online member – https://www.internationalmilling.com/companies/carter-pump-inc/ Carter Pump were the first company to introduce the plunger pump to the wastewater industry. The company then expanded its product line to include both Pneumatic Injectors and Diaphragm Pumps.
Now Carter Pump has become established as a market leader by supplying reliable and rugged products which are exceedingly well engineered while being built and tested to withstand the rigours of wastewater applications.
This attention to quality and detail has earned Carter Pump tens of thousands of installations around the world, all of which are supported by genuine, original equipment manufactured (OEM) replacement parts and unparalleled customer service.
On-site design support is delivered to custom engineer solutions covering a wide range of issues that may be face during at any pump take-on project. There’s ‘on-website’ support here http://- http://carterpump.com/ where the Carter experts pinpoint operating aspects of one of the three types of flush mechanism – the Electrode – reference their successful Pneumatic Ejector pump product…
The Carter Pneumatic Ejector is a practical pumping and sewage boosting solution. Its remarkable solids handling ability, coupled with the fact that it has no practical limitation on head, offers the ideal solution for the movement of high viscosity liquids and solids. Capacities ranging from 30 to 600 GPM and discharge pressures up to 50 PSI enable us to select and manufacture the most effective Pneumatic Ejector for each specific application. Engineered configurations handle most requirements. There are 3 mechanisms Bell Float, Ball Float and Electrode Flush
The electrode ejection control system is electrical and consists of three (3) stainless steel electrodes of unequal length mounted on the cover plate by means of properly insulated NEMA IV electrode holder. The cycle begins as sewage enters the pot by gravity flow. As liquid level reaches the second shortest electrode, it completes a circuit which energizes a relay and sends a signal to the electrode control panel requesting flush air.
The discharge action continues with air being applied to the surface of the liquid until the liquid level descends in the sewage receiver past the tip of the longest electrode and the system is de-energised at which point the circuit is broken and the flow of air stopped
The electrode holder is designed to also serve as the inlet air connection such that air entering the ejector pot will blow past the electrodes tending to remove any stringy material which might otherwise adhere to them – more... https://www.carterpump.com/products/pneumatic-ejectors/
