Fountains provide aeration for lakes and keep the water clean. Oceans and natural lakes are able to thrive because they have mass circulation that allows them to transfer oxygen into their system. It is this circulation and oxygen transfer that has allowed these bodies of water to stay healthy. Lakes and ponds don’t have that great circulation and are unable to maintain fresh, clean water.
With fountains the circulation is provided and these bodies of water can thrive and live. Not only are the fountains beautifully displayed but they are also functional.
Water pumping systems are designed to supply the maximum demand of the system in which they are installed. However, quite often the demand for water can vary and be much less then the system is designed for in capacity.
For example, on a conventional pump system, a throttling valve in the system piping normally handles these conditions. The pressure drops across a control valve and other factors cause an energy loss/
A Variable Frequency Drive eliminates the need for a control valve because speed and output of the pump are electrically controlled to match the water demand.
The variable speed drive system operates much like the cruise control in your car as it is traveling down the road with the cruise control set at 60 MPH. When the car approaches a hill the motor speed must increase using more fuel to maintain 60 MPH and correspondingly will slow down using less fuel going down the opposite side of the hill. When the water demand is reduced in a booster pump system the pressure begins to rise and the Variable Frequency Drive slows the speed of the electric pump motor therefore control ling operating pressure at the desired point.
When the speed of the electric motor is lowered, the required horsepower is reduced translating into power savings in electric consumption.
