Fall / Autumn is here and we turn our attention to humidification control as temperatures cool down.
On both the FOCUS and IBEX pumps, the advanced PLC controller has given more options and information available to the user. On both systems the door mounted control panel will give the user much more information. The screen will display
Current status (ready/running)
Current system pressure (high)
System running hours
Oil change notification
When a UV light is used on the
pump, alarm for service
Low inlet water pressure and
Pump prime sequence
Drain time per pump.
3 x 7 day timers for weekly
Cycle timer for "pulse" operations
Optional extras that can be specified when ordering:
Temperature control (single zone)
Humidity control (single zone)
Temperature Humidity sensor
Is your system ready for the season?
Before activating make sure the filters are clean, change if necessary: Check / change the pump oil: Flush the system (see manual): Check nozzles for performance. Each (standard) nozzle puts out 12 lb/hr. or 5.5 kg/hr. when performing correctly. Blockages reduce this output considerably.
