Inline 400 Enhancements: Now Rated as NEMA 3R Outdoor System

02/13/2017

Inline 400 - Outdoor Rated - CutawayWe recently introduced two new upgrades to the Inline 400 Pressure Boosting System. Although these changes are small, with no effect to the overall performance or function of the product, we are excited about the positive impact and new application possibilities these changes will have for customers. Beginning immediately (products with a 16L date code/Serial Number prefix), the Inline 400 will come standard with:

  • A clear protective rain cover: This durable poly-carbonate cover protects the control head when installed vertically outdoors. By adding this UV-resistant cover to the control head, a NEMA 3R rainproof rating is achieved in all vertical installations. Because this cover is clear, it can remain in place, yet still allow the owner to read the overall system status LED indicators. Using Velcro, the cover is held securely in place, but is quickly removed if any changes are required to the internal electronic control systems. Note: Horizontal installations will continue to be approved for INDOOR use only. 
  • Standard 1.25-inch male NPT thread connection fittings: These new connections allow for hassle-free installations that are quick, strong, and leak free.

2016 Recap: Franklin Wells for the World Foundation Provides Clean Water to 18,000 in South Africa

01/25/2017

In 2016, the Franklin Wells for the World Foundation (FWWF) continued to make a difference in South Africa by providing clean, safe drinking water through the installation of wells and leveraging Franklin's innovative products. Over the past six years, FWWF has made a difference in the lives of over 100,000 people. This year, five projects spanning across five different countries in Africa were completed, reaching nearly 18,000 people.

Many of these people did not have a gift to unwrap this past Christmas, but the availability of fresh drinking water for the first time in their lives translated to a gift that continues to provide for many years to come.FWWF_Logo _color

2016 Installations:

  • St. Leonard School, Mpingi, Uganda
  • Bujjo School, Mpingi, Uganda
  • Soimet Community, Nakuru, Kenya
  • Jabulani Primary School, Northern Matabele Land, Zimbabwe
  • Habu Community, Botswana

Clean, safe drinking water is a luxury that is often taken for granted. At two of our installations in the Central African community of Mpingi, Uganda, the children at St. Leonard and Bujjo Schools have been faced with the harsh reality of living without clean water and water sanitation since birth. This community directly struggled with the harsh reality that an astounding number of deaths under the age of five were due to water-related diseases. Since the installation of our solar-powered water pumping system, the 7,400 residents of the Mpingi village are experiencing how great of an impact access to clean water can make in their community.

These schools are now experiencing increased enrollment since students are able to focus on their education instead of spending many hours of the day searching for clean water. The students are now less likely to drop out, become orphans, or suffer from water-related diseases. Beyond meeting basic human needs, access to clean water provides communities with improved health and sanitation, the ability to focus on education, and increased economic development.

In addition to providing access to clean water, FWWF supports the communities with civil work during the project, post-installation service, and assistance with the creation of feeding programs to sustain the village going forward.

These installations in the village of Mpingi, Uganda are just two examples of how the five communities involved have benefited from the installations donated by the Franklin Wells for the World Foundation in 2016.

C Series: More Than 45 Years in the Field & Still Kickin'

12/19/2016

Past, present, and future – Franklin Electric’s C Series Convertible Jet Pump has been a model product that embodies the durability and performance characteristics that Franklin hangs its reputation on. The C Series recently surpassed 45 years in existence, which peaks the question of why this pump has been so good for so long. Here’s Franklin Electric C Series Convertible Jet Pump - Rightwhat our C Series expert had to say:

“When choosing a pump, you need something you can count on. The C Series is just that. It’s nothing flashy that has had to be changed year after year to keep up with the times. My father developed and sold the very first unit, and I started out building them on the assembly line myself, seeing their quality construction firsthand. This pump was designed and built right the first time and is still one of, if not the most durable pumps of its kind on the market today. It’s a workhorse that you can count on year after year. Whether you choose it because of the high-performance stainless steel impeller, proven 56C frame motor, or its sheer high pumping performance, you know what you’re getting. Plus, in the rare case that you have to service it, it’s designed to be super simple. You don’t have to take the entire thing apart. Everything is right there for simple serviceability in minutes. This pump is a beast, and it’s going to be available for a long time.”
--- Sean Welsh, Franklin Electric National Sales Manager

Expand Your Craft With New Products:

  • New Ultra-Efficient 6-Inch Electric Motor family – Provides significant electrical cost savings via an efficiency improvement of 10-12 percent when compared to standard induction motors. Providing a constant horsepower production at high efficiencies, this family covers the 9 traditional pump horsepower ratings from 5 to 50 horsepower in just 3 distinct motor models. Each motor works at full pumping and electrical efficiency with multiple pumps, maximizing the product’s onsite flexibility and use among contractors. It’s an ideal fit for areas facing DOE efficiency regulations or those expecting tightened standards in the future, as well as long or consistent run time applications, large scale cattle or swine operations, municipal well or high-volume transfer applications, and mining or dewatering applications. 
  • New Inline Pump Controls family – Offers 5 pump starting and control devices that team with any submersible or surface pump up to 20 amps (or approximately 2 hp) 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 model chosen, the product family offers various forms of motor protection, including dry run, dead head pumping, over amperage, locked system, and over pressurization. In addition to many of these devices accepting either 115 V or 230 V, they also offer two unique features that ensure the system remains functional and hassle free. The first is a daily motor rotation start designed to energize the motor at least once every 24 hours so the system does not become locked due to a lack of use. The second is a unique automatic restart feature that eliminates the need to manually restart the control in the case of an unexpected trip or fault. Ideal applications for these pump starting controls includes 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. 
  • New SSR Series of Submersible Pumps – Combines the robust and efficient features of the SR Series proven in the market today with an innovative mechanical design that allows for fast delivery time from distributors to contractors. This 304 stainless steel strap design is fully repairable and corrosion resistant, and its high quality die-cut stainless steel impellers and diffusers provide maximum performance in the most extreme applications. Offered in flows of 100, 150, 250, and 325 gpm at a maximum of 1,400 feet of head, the SSR Series is ideal for industrial, commercial, municipal, agricultural, and irrigation applications.

Success Story: “And That’s Why Franklin is our Bread & Butter”

10/31/2016

A loyal Franklin Electric customer recently pulled a 1977 motor that was still running like a top. He thought it was pretty cool, and decided to share his story.

“A good customer of mine recently called with no water pressure. The pump was running, but he had no water. I Franklin Electric Motor - 1977figured it was a broken pipe or impeller issue. I pulled it, and the motor looked fine. It turns out that the center of the pump impellers had given up. I’m pretty sure it was just fatigue. I have a test tank in my shop that I test all of my pumps, motors, and controls in. To my surprise, the motor ran perfectly. It was extremely quiet and ran really smooth. In fact, if the motor wasn’t from 1977, I would have put it right back in the hole no questions asked. I’m guessing that this pump had more than 4 million gallons of water go through it, and who knows how many more would have if the old pump would have held up. With me, Franklin is the standard. It’s going to work. And if it doesn’t, it’s typically because someone improperly installed the wet end, or it’s an external issue related to the power supply or the control box. It’s almost never because of motor failure. I have a very low return rate. I test them all. 99% percent of the time, the Franklin motor checks out fine. And that’s why Franklin is our bread and butter.”
