Technologies inside: Higher pump efficiency, consolidated logic

Eaton M-Max VFD provided QuantumFlo with a cost-effective, more energy-efficient solution than prior drives used. The more accurate Eaton M-Max drive with IP21 conduit kit allowed QuantumFlo to meet energy and functionality needs, while eliminating the PLC and control panel for logic.

The Eaton M-Max drive provides pump control and reduces equipment requirements (and space) for the QuantumFlo Atom booster pump system. Courtesy: EatonEaton M-Max VFD provided QuantumFlo with a cost-effective, more energy-efficient solution than prior drives used, the companies said. The more accurate Eaton M-Max drive with IP21 conduit kit allowed QuantumFlo to meet energy and functionality needs, while eliminating the PLC and control panel for logic.

QuantumFlo used its variable speed pump expertise to develop a “pump in a box” solution, the  QuantumFlo Atom Simplex Light Commercial/Residential pressure booster, a fully contained, fully assembled solution with integrated motor, pump, bladder tank, and a VFD.

Eaton’s M-Max variable frequency drive was used with an IP21 conduit kit to contain all the wiring.
