Enerpac has added split-flow pump upgrade kits that are able to network multiple pumps and lift points for higher accuracy synchronisation.
Split-flow pump kits allow multiple pumps to be networked together under one consolidated control unit to make a system as small or as large as needed for a specific lifting application, explained Enerpac. The updated kits allow operators to combine units to accommodate up to 32 individual lifting points.
The manufacturer added: “The upgrade kits are an inexpensive means of increasing the number of lift points for contractors that already have split-flow pumps. With existing smaller split-flow pumps, a user does not need to purchase a larger stand-alone unit as one can simply connect the existing pumps with a network kit. No permanent modifications to the pumps are necessary.”
Three upgrade kits are available from Enerpac: the SFP Network Kit, which connects several split-flow pumps together to control them from a single control station; Single SFP Synchro Kit, which synchronises the lifting points of a single split-flow pump through use of feedback from stroke and pressure sensors; and the Multiple SFP Synchro Kit that connects several split-flow pumps together and synchronises all the lifting points using stroke and pressure transducers.
