Pivotrol® Condensate Pump Mechanism Now Available as Retrofit
BLYTHEWOOD, SC - Spirax Sarco, Inc., has introduced a Pivotrol® Pressure-Powered Pump Cover and Mechanism Retrofit, designed as an easy, in-line, bolt-in upgrade for almost every make of mechanical pump. Provided with full warranty coverage at 200 psig operation, the Pivotrol retrofit is designed as a solution to excessive maintenance and energy consumption, heat exchanger stall, waterhammer and erratic steam system performance.
The Pivotrol PowerPivot® technology replaces conventional pins and linkages with pivots, which reduce friction and wear and lengthen service life. A special damper uses the hydraulic inertia of the collected condensate to reduce mechanical shock as the valve actuators shift.
Designed for rapid-cycling process environments under elevated pressure and temperature conditions, the Pivotrol retrofit is backed by a three million cycles or three year warranty, with a lifetime spring warranty.
