Neptune's Series 500 pumps will be showcased at ACE 14

Nearly 10,000 dedicated water professionals and more than 500 exhibitors will be on hand at AWWA’s ACE14 Show. Founded in 1881, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) is the largest organization of water supply professionals in the world. Its 54,000 members represent the full spectrum of the water community, including treatment plant operators, utility managers, scientists, environmentalists, manufacturers, academicians and regulators.

Neptune will be showcasing the Series 7000 mechanically actuated diaphragm metering pump and Series 500 hydraulically actuated metering pump. The mechanical design of the Series 7000 is designed to eliminate the use of contour plates on the liquid side of the diaphragm while the straight-through valve and head design allows for improved flow characteristics. The unit is self-priming has a maximum capacity range up to 1,135 L/h (300 gph) at 150 psi.

The Series 500 pumps feature EZE-CLEAN valve cartridges that can be removed for cleaning without disturbing the piping to the pump, and a variable oil by-pass stroke adjustment that allows for better valve performance than traditional variable linked designs. Neptune will also be featuring its PZ Series electronic diaphragm metering pump, which is designed for various water treatment applications at flow rates from .01 to 20 gph.
