Kadant Johnson Expands Pressure-Powered Pump Line to Include Drop-in Replacement Float-Free Level Control
Three Rivers, Mich., - Kadant Johnson Inc., a subsidiary of Kadant Inc. (NYSE:KAI), expanded its Liqui-Mover® pressure-powered pump line to include a replacement float-free level control assembly. With the replacement float-free level control assembly, major float-operated pump brands can now be converted to a float-free assembly providing a reliable and cost effective solution for high maintenance pressure-powered pumps. The replacement float-free level control assembly has no moving parts in contact with the condensate, and no springs, linkage, or floats that are prone to wear and failure.
Designed to retrofit major float-operated pump brands, the float-free assembly features a drop-in, bolt-on mounting flange creating a fast and easy upgrade. The motive pressure 3-way valve is external to the tank for quick visual check of the operation. A 2-probe level control and a NEMA classified control assembly are also incorporated into the float-free level control.
The Liqui-Mover pressure-powered pump, first introduced in 1934, has no motors, starters, shafts, rotating mechanical seals, or impellers. Instead, the pump uses steam or compressed air as the motive pressure to lift or pump high-temperature condensate. All configurations of the Liqui-Mover pump line may reduce or eliminate the loss of flash steam and the associated heat energy, making these units efficient and reliable.
