Flowrox launches new product for pump and dampener maintenance
Flowrox, a specialist in heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturing and services, has launched the Flowrox Expulse product, designed to assist during pump and dampener maintenance by reducing noise and vibration associated with traditional methods—which can lead to pipe damage that can cause breakage and a loss of revenue.
The Flowrox Expulse was designed for use by companies in the oil & gas, mining, metallurgy, and other industries where pipes and valves are used to move materials or fluids using pressure.
Traditional pulsating pump dampeners are known to produce unbalanced shaking that can result in failure or operational drawbacks, which in turn require additional add-ons and devices to counter its challenges.
Engineering innovation and ingenuity have helped Flowrox design a complete solution for this pulsation dampener system, which quiets noise while settling pressure peaks and ensuring a continuous fluid flow.
One of the most noticeable features on the Flowrox Expulse is the product's ability to reduce energy consumption in an operation by up to 10%, largely as a result of its absorption of up to 90% of pulsations.
In addition, the device's reduction in the hammering of the pipeline and pump can lead to extended operational lifetime for the pump bearing and gearbox.
'A shutdown due to a threat to pipe integrity can not only be costly, but hamper the ability to generate revenue for clients who depend on this type of equipment,' says Todd Loudin, president of Flowrox. 'Our company has designed the Flowrox Expulse to help reduce the chance of pipe damage and breakage in a cost-effective manner.'
The Flowrox Expulse flexible pulsation dampener prevents the collection of sediment, particles or residue thanks to its built-in self-cleaning operation.
