Carefully Choose Pumps to Control Electricity Costs
After feed and labor costs, electricity is the next highest fish-farming expense. That makes the selection of pumps and motors one of the most important decisions that you face.
Undersized Motors Increase Electricity Use and Operating Temperatures
Higher operating temperatures shorten motor life. You will only know if your pump is working too hard by measuring its amp draw. Our experts can help you check this.
We painstakingly select and test all of our pumps for power consumption. We illustrate ratings, specifications and power consumption clearly. We refer to “aquaculture duty,” to indicate long-term reliability and efficiency in humid, commercial applications.
Point Four™ LC Water Monitor/Controller
Our PT4 logic controller (LC) is a touch-screen monitor/controller that simplifies your operations, including monitoring sensors that trigger alarms when water is too low in tanks, turns oxygen diffusers on and off when needed, and sends text messages to your phone when it detects a problem.Learn more
Location. Location. Location. Where You Put Pumps Affects Performance
The capacity of your facility’s electrical service and where you locate pumps in relation to the water level in your tanks also affect pump efficiency and operating life.
Our team of experts—engineers, scientists and technicians—can help you identify mechanical or electrical issues, as well as recommend better ways to maintain the water quality that your fish need to thrive.
Point Four™ RIU3 Remote Water Monitor/Controller
This remote interface unit (RIU) is a single-sensor transmitter/controller that accepts inputs from any sensor providing a voltage, 4-20mA or thermistor input. Equipped with an optional backlit display, it allows the user to view readings remotely. The RIU will function as a stand-alone controller; or up to 10 units can be daisy-chained for a network connection.Learn more
Do Not Compare Pumps and Their Motors by Price Alone
Often, an inexpensive pump has an undersized motor that must work very hard to do the job. This may be an appropriate choice for temporary or noncritical applications, but not when the lives of your animals are at stake.
