Groundwater Week 2017: Everything You Need to Know Before the Show

11/20/2017

Gw Week Logo 2017 (2)Franklin Electric will utilize Groundwater Week 2017 as an interactive platform for field data reveals, new product displays, and contractor education sessions in booth 725 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, December 6-7. Here’s everything you need to know about the show!

Welcome Party/Cocktail Reception
Franklin Electric will once again be the featured sponsor of the Groundwater Week 2017 Welcome Party. Join us for light hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and networking.

  • Tuesday, December 5 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. in the Davidson Ballroom at the Music City Center

Field Data Reveals & New Products

  • Unique to Groundwater Week 2017, Franklin Electric will serve as host to a veteran groundwater contractor in the booth to reveal their recent personal experience and success in a field trial of one of the company’s latest innovations – the MagForce™ Permanent Magnet Motor. Show attendees will hear firsthand the specific cost savings and application improvements it’s afforded the end user. The 6-inch motor is a high-performance alternative to standard induction motors, providing electrical cost savings via an efficiency improvement of 10-12* percent and a typical investment payback of less than one year in long- or continuous-run applications. It features SandFighter® construction and covers the nine traditional pump horsepower ratings from five to 60 horsepower in three distinct motor models.
  • Another new product at the show will be the SubDrive Utility Variable Frequency Drive which converts 2-wire conventional submersible pumping systems, ranging from 1/3 hp up to 1-1/2 hp, into constant water pressure systems. Designed with a compact footprint, it features a sleek NEMA 3R enclosure rated for both indoor and outdoor use, and retrofits to most pumping systems utilizing a Franklin Electric motor. Separate of the pump and motor, the drive makes troubleshooting and maintenance of the pumping system significantly easier compared to all-in-one units.

Now Available: New Inline Controls

09/13/2017

Franklin Electric is excited to announce the launch of the much-anticipated Inline Controls! The new Inline Controls include five pump starting and control devices that pair with a variety of submersible or surface pumps to provide or boost the system’s overall water pressure – and in many cases, without the need of an additional bladder tank. Depending on application requirements and the selected model, this product family offers various forms of system protection. They also offer two unique features that ensure the system remains functional and hassle free, including: a daily motor rotation start designed to energize the motor at least once every 24 hours (to prevent system locking), and a unique automatic restart feature eliminating the need to manually restart the pump in the case of an unexpected trip or fault.

Features by Model
Features By Model ChartNote: Proper pump selection is essential for use with the InlineFLW, SWC, SWP, and ADJ as pump shut-off pressure will be realized within the system prior to shut down. If the pump size can not be reduced, select the InlineCTL with built-in pressure reducing valve.

Ideal applications for the Inline Controls family include: well systems as a replacement to a standard 30/50 switch and tank combination, garden or watering applications that are long distances from a well, municipal boosting applications, and other water pressure boosting applications where a bladder tank is not conducive.

Now Available: SubDrive Utility Variable Frequency Drive

08/15/2017

Franklin Electric is pleased to announce the launch of the SubDrive Utility Variable Frequency Drive. SubDrive Franklin Electric Subdrive UtilityUtility converts conventional Franklin Electric 2-wire submersible pumping systems, ranging from 1/3 hp up to 1-1/2 hp, into constant water pressure systems. These systems provide consistent water pressure throughout the chosen location, no matter how many fixtures are open at one time. Designed with a conveniently compact footprint, it features a sleek NEMA 3R (Type 3) enclosure rated for both indoor and outdoor use. SubDrive Utility retrofits to most 2-wire submersible pumping systems that utilize a Franklin Electric motor, making the transition seamless for current systems. 

Product Features

  • One unit is compatible with 115 and 230 Volt Franklin Electric 2-wire motors
  • Robust SubDrive pressure sensor standard for ease of installation
  • Additional input for optional analog pressure transducer for precise pressure control
  • Three LED indicators allow for easy identification of system status and troubleshooting
  • USB port allows for easy firmware updates

SubDrive Utility was designed for efficiency, both related to cost and performance. Separate of the pump and motor, the drive makes troubleshooting and maintenance of the pumping system significantly easier. In cases where the pump and/or motor requires replacement, it is fully functional with the new products, saving the hassle of added inventory and higher costs that come with other all-in-one submersible units. Standard mesh screens minimize intrusion of insects and other performance inhibiters while still allowing for optimal cooling of the drive. SubDrive Utility ships standard with a traditional SubDrive pressure sensor, but is also fully compatible with an analog pressure transducer to provide added flexibility for the contractor.

Success Story: Zero Extinctions, One Pump at a Time

08/03/2017

The Turtle Survival Alliance had a challenge, and Franklin Electric’s Little Giant® brand is providing the solution. The nonprofit organization recently needed to improve the habitat for some of the most endangered turtles in the world Franklin Water Web Story Photobecause the water quality in their ponds was not optimal for the turtles. The previous pumps could not hold up, and weren’t providing the environmentally safe, yet simple-to-maintain production needed. We donated 12 Little Giant F-Series Pumps and 1 Little Giant 6EC Series Sump Pump and they’re already making a difference.

Click here to read Pond Trade magazine’s full coverage of the story.

The Benefits Are Obvious

  • Creating more stress-free environments that simulate the turtles’ natural habitats, including those as needed for 21 of the world’s 25 most critically endangered species
  • Supporting ponds from 7,000 to 30,000 gallons
  • Providing energy-efficient pumping that can run continuously and is environmentally safe
  • Offering flexibility to meet a variety of pumping applications on-site

We also recently created a video telling this amazing story, featuring Nathan Haislip, Facilities Manager and Lead Keeper of the Turtle Survival Center. Click here to view the video.

New Video – Inline Controls Featured at Jubilee by National Driller

07/19/2017

Roughly, 85% of the water pumping systems that we sell and our contractors install are run on a basic switch and bladder tank that come on and off with a pressure differential. Many of these pumping systems, unfortunately, underperform every day. This doesn’t have to be the case. With Franklin Electric’s new* Inline Controls product family, maximizing the output and flow of the pumping system can be a simple reality. Our own Jeff Frank recently talked with National Driller magazine about how contractors can meet peak pumping demand and provide the proper system protection by choosing the right control device.

Watch the Video.

*Note: Inline Controls scheduled launch date is August/September 2017.
