Now Available: Sacrificial Anode Kits for 4-Inch Submersible Motors

07/30/2018

Franklin Electric is excited to offer the Sacrificial Anode Kit as a cost-effective solution for applications in Franklin Electric Sacrificial Anode 4 Inch Sub Motor1geographic areas exposed to highly corrosive water conditions.

The Sacrificial Anode Kit provides added protection against corrosion of four-inch Franklin Electric submersible motors. It bolts directly to the bottom of the motor with just three screws and has a smaller diameter, making it an ideal option for both new and retrofit installations. With the metal-to-metal contact, this low-grade cast iron anode acts as a conductor for corrosion, increasing overall motor and water system life. The motor remains unchanged and contractor inventory management continues status quo. As a lower cost alternative to 316 stainless steel motor constructions, the Sacrificial Anode Kit can cost effectively be used as a precautionary measure to prevent premature motor failure in highly corrosive applications – especially those with brackish water, high chlorides, or high temperatures.

The Sacrificial Anode Kit is available in both standard thrust and high thrust configurations. As the only anode designed and manufactured by a motor manufacturer, it is specifically constructed for Franklin Electric submersible motors to maximize compatibility and water system performance.

If you have questions concerning the Sacrificial Anode Kit, please contact your local Territory Manager, Field Service Engineer, or the Franklin Electric Technical Service Hotline at 800.348.2420.

Success Story: Nearly 6 Million Gallons Since 1978

07/26/2018

Delmer Gray recently shared a Franklin Electric motor from 1978 with us to show the value we’ve brought to his business. Here’s what he had to say about it…

“My dad commonly says, ‘Why is it that we never have time to do it right the first time, yet we always have time to make sure it’s done right the second time.’ In my experience, doing it right means installing Franklin Electric. This recently pulled 1978 motor is a great example of why. Set 35-feet deep, it spent a large amount of its life helping to provide water in a residential application for a family of four. Based on normal water uses, I’m guessing it supplied Gray Well Service LLC Photoroughly 400 gallons of water per day, which would be nearly six million gallons of water over a lifetime. The water conditions were pretty standard for southern Michigan at about 20 to 30 grains hard with high iron levels. And, this is only one. I know of hundreds of other wells in this area that have had Franklin motors for 30 to 40 years that are still going strong. That’s why I stand behind Franklin Electric. When you set up the system properly, you can expect great quality and longevity from their products. I’ve used a lot of different products, and Franklin Electric is the best on the market. As a Key Dealer, my territory manager is always there for me and the Technical Service Hotline helps me when I have questions. The customer service provided by Franklin Electric goes unmatched.”

Up To Speed: Should You Test a New Spool of Cable? Here’s the Why & How.

07/23/2018

Up To Speed Graphic Thin Version

Up To Speed is a concise, technical blog compiled by industry veteran Mark Reeder. It provides an interesting fact, answers a thought-provoking question, or offers a cliffhanger from an actual site visit by one of our world-class Field Service Engineers.

Cable Spools

This tip is all about being proactive.

The scenario: Cable spools generally come pre-tested from the manufacturer. And in general, cable is tough—very tough. But accidents happen. For instance, let’s say a new spool of cable falls off the back of the truck, gets hit by a forklift, or some object gets dropped on the spool. Or, let’s say you have an older, used spool you’re thinking about reusing. In either case, you want to make sure the cable is undamaged before it goes downhole…not after.

So, how can you be sure the cable isn’t damaged? Simple—test it first.

“Yes, brand-new wire always comes pre-tested, but it could get damaged—typically the outside wire of the spool, the first part that goes down into the well,” Franklin Electric Field Service Engineer Dave Bumbalough said. “Sometimes this damage is difficult to detect visually and not discovered until it’s far downhole.”

Dave recently used the following technique to discover a nick in a large spool of drop cable. By testing the spool of wire in the shop before visiting the job site, he was able to detect the compromised insulation, ultimately saving time and money.

To conduct this test, you’ll need:

  • A body of water large enough to submerge the entire spool of wire. The body of water could be anything from a 55-gallon drum cut in half, to a washout pan, to a large bucket or even a horse trough.
  • A megohmmeter, or insulation tester. A megohmmeter (sometimes referred to as an insulation tester or megger), can measure ohms in the millions and can find damage in this type of circumstance.

Megger FINAL
To conduct the test, submerge the cable in water. While submerging the cable, make sure to keep both ends of the cable dry and out of the water. Since air acts as an insulator and water is partially conductive, if there is a breakdown in insulation in the wire cable, electricity will leak into the water and can be detected by a megohmmeter.

Place one probe in the water, and another probe on one of the ends of the wire. The readings should result in very large numbers. If not, the electricity is being leaked into the water, likely from a nick in the installation.

So, what’s a high ohm reading?

With the megohmmeter set to either 500 or 1000 VDC output, normal insulation resistance readings for drop cable and a motor (if attached) should read two-million ohms or more. If the reading is below two-million ohms, it is not recommended to use this wire. Reference Franklin Electric’s AIM Manual and AIM Manual App (available on both the Apple® App Store and Google Play Store*) as needed for insulation resistance readings.

Instead of spending time, money, and energy dropping hundreds of feet of cable into a well and finding there’s a breakdown in insulation, test it at the shop first. It only takes a few minutes, but could save a lot of time in the field.

Now, you’re up to speed.

“It’s Amazing It Lasted 44 Years”: Success Stories From Our Testimonial Library

07/12/2018

Over the past year, multiple contractors have shared their pump and motor success stories with us. Here is what they had to say…

“Ran by this Franklin Electric control box recently and just had to share. It’s from 1973, and was installed along with the original 2 hp pump and Franklin Electric motor that is still running perfectly in the well. The system supplies water to a metal fabrication shop with 6 employees that use it about 10 hours a day, 5 days a week. That’s a ton of water over the years. This is case in point why we install Franklin. The quality speaks for itself.”

-- Travis Flint, Thomas Flint & Son, Inc. in Cadillac, MichiganJason Kyer Web Story Photo

“Thank you for making quality products. This is why we still install Franklin Electric products. Out with the old, in with the new. We know once we install a Franklin product, we will not have to go back for years to come. The pump above is from 1973 and was a ½ hp, set at 40 feet with iron so bad it made us look like we rolled in mud once we got everything out of the well. It's amazing it lasted 44 years.”

-- Jason Kyer, Monticello Pump Services, Inc. in Manassas, Virginia

“I love it when I pull out an old motor like this from the 70s or 80s! Pulled this one out a couple of weeks ago from 1980. It provided water for a residential application that also utilized some landscape irrigation. The pump was set at 110 feet and was still running like a top when it was pulled. This quality and industry reputation over the years is why Franklin Electric is my #1 pick for any job.”

-- Matt Henderson, Henderson Drilling Inc. in Casper, WyomingMartin Proulx Web Story Photo 2

“Today, we pulled a pump that had a Franklin Electric motor from 1975. The pump needed replaced, but the 1975 motor was still working perfectly fine. It was installed in a 300-foot deep well that supplied water to a private, 3-bedroom residential home. This is why we have installed Franklin Electric for 44 years. We install the best, and when we choose Franklin Electric we just don’t have any problems.”

-- Martin Proulx, Plomberie Gilbert et Fils Inc, in Quebec, Canada
