New Pivotrol® Condensate Pump Designed For Long Life Cycles
BLYTHEWOOD, SC - Spirax Sarco, Inc., has introduced the Pivotrol® Pressure Powered Condensate Pump. This all-new unit is engineered for dependable steam system condensate recovery in rapid-cycling process environments and under all pressure and temperature conditions. The Pivotrol® pump is designed as a solution to excessive maintenance and energy consumption, heat exchanger stall, waterhammer and erratic steam system performance.
The first in a series of products featuring reliable PowerPivot® technology, the Pivotrol® pump is backed by a three million cycles or three year warranty, with a lifetime spring warranty. A five million cycles or five year extended warranty is available as an option. Spirax Sarco has incorporated an integral electronic cycle counter to monitor the pump's performance and confirm warranty coverage.
Featuring reliable PowerPivot® technology, the new mechanism replaces pins and linkages with pivots, which reduce friction and wear, lengthening service life. A special damper uses the hydraulic inertia of the collected condensate to reduce mechanical shock as the valve actuators shift. The Pivotrol® internal mechanism is retrofittable to existing Spirax Sarco PPC pumps.
The unit is self-contained and self regulated by mechanical controls. Unlike electrically powered condensate pumps, there are no dynamic seals, glands or packings to fail under elevated temperature and pressure. The Pivotrol pump is compatible with sanitary/hygienic processing.
Spirax Sarco is the world's leading provider of steam system solutions, dedicated to providing knowledge, service and products for the control and efficient use of steam and other industrial fluids. With over 90 years of experience, Spirax Sarco has both the resources and capabilities to meet customers' total system needs.
