Pumps and Valves: Dutypoint 'makes life easier'

Dutypoint Systems has added two products to its booster set and pressurisation range.
Pumps and Valves: Dutypoint

The Quantum Integral booster/pressurisation unit has been developed specifically to save contractors on-site time.

By combining the packaging of the twin and triple pump booster sets from the Dutypoint range with a miniature fill-set, what would normally be two separate installations becomes one simple operation, the company says.

A single electrical feed to the unit removes the necessity of a dedicated supply to the pressurisation unit. And the water is drawn directly from the discharge manifold of the pump set, so that there is no need to run a feed to it.

A single connection to the sealed system, and an overflow pipe to drain are the only two on-site connections needed to install the pressurisation part of the unit.

Another advantage of the Quantum Integral is the saving on plant room space. The twin pump booster set pictured with the built-in fill-set has a footprint of only 780mm x 650mm - small enough to take though a standard door opening.

This Integral option is available on virtually all models in the booster set range, and is complemented by the conventional Quantum standalone electro-mechanical and microprocessor-controlled pressurisation units.

The VMV versatile modular booster set is another first from Dutypoint Systems.

The company says the concept of modular design has been refined to give the consultant or contractor numerous options on pipework configuration and control panel location to maximise the available space in plant area.

All of the tees, crosses and elbows that make up the suction and discharge manifolds are manufactured to the same centre-line dimensions so that the layout of the booster set can be specified at the time of order, or even modified on site to suit local conditions.

A standard triple pump set can be configured in more than 3,800 different ways.

Because so many different sets can be built from a relatively small number of component parts, the company says its delivery lead times and prices are impressive. Investment in specialised production machinery and stock over the past few years underpins this, and after-sales backup in the field is provided by commissioning engineers.

Various inverter-drive options are available to suit each installation. Where price is paramount, a single inverter controls all of the pumps; where possible it is preferable to mount an inverter on each motor.
