Sampling Pump Cuts Power Consumption

Q.E.D. Environmental Systems’ Power Pro ESP electric sampling pump boasts cutting-edge pumping technology to achieve simple operation with sophisticated control. The pump combines the benefits of the two common types of electric groundwater sampling pumps on the market today, the high-powered pump and the disposable pump.

 

High-powered pumps offer strength, with substantial depth capability, but need a heavy, bulky generator to run. Disposable pumps are lightweight and easy to move but are not as powerful and can be expensive to repair or replace over time. QED’s methodology of low-flow sampling enables an electric pump for low-flow sampling with low power consumption and smart sensor capabilities.

 With existing electric groundwater sampling pumps, it is often necessary to measure the cable and tubing before lowering the pump to achieve the proper depth. The Power Pro ESP pump eliminates this step with its in-water sensor. A green light indicates when the pump has hit water and numbered hash marks on the cable allow for measuring past the water line. The sensor also works in reverse to provide run-dry protection. When the sensor no longer detects water, it stops the pump and automatically restarts it when the water level recovers.

 

The Power Pro ESP pump is an all-in-one system with controls integrated directly into the cable reel. For more details, checkout the Power Pro ESP pump.
