Com-Pac Filtration Announces New Accupump Systems Variable Frequency Drives

Benefits of VFDs include allowing the pump to run at varying rates of speed.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - June 29, 2020 - PRLog -- The dynamics of determining a "good" filtration system's mechanical design & installation can be challenging.  Partly, because of the sheer number of determinants that need to be factored into the process.  When designing, we find that the most straight forward approach is to prioritize components and needs.  Typically, number one on this list will be the filter type itself or the filter pump in the mechanical pump room.  If either fail, the entire system is down.  This means that these selections are critical and any ancillary equipment to aid in serviceability and life expectancy are important.

Protecting the filter pump is absolutely critical and we do this by utilizing our Accupump System that includes VFD (Variable Frequency Drives) protection in all of our designs and installations.  This protection and general energy savings inherent to VFD technology ensures you get the most life out of filter pump and exponentially increases the ROI of the equipment installation.

What is a VFD?
A VFD is a 3-phase induction A.C. motor controller that allows a pump to run at varying rates of speed, by varying a specific volts to hertz ratio applied to that motor. VFDs go by a few other names, including:

• Variable speed drive
• Adjustable frequency drive
• Adjustable speed drive
• Inverter drive

VFDs run an electric current through a series of transistors used as "switches." These switches determine the frequency of power supplied to the motor and therefore determine how fast the motor will run. VFDs can be used wherever a motor's output needs to be adjusted according to an input.

At a water filtration facility, for example, the speed of the motors on the plant's filtration pumps will need to be adjusted depending on how much demand there is for water. If there is a constant flow into the pump, but decreased demand for water leaving the plant, a VFD can be used to slow the pump down and prevent too much water from entering the tank.When paired with automated control systems, VFDs make it incredibly easy to operate pump motors efficiently.
