Franklin Electric responds to water pressure boosting challenges

Franklin Electric offers new inline controls, compatible with both Franklin Electric and Little Giant brand pumps.

The inline controls family includes five pump starting and control devices that pair with a variety of submersible or surface pumps 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 selected model, the product family offers various forms of system 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 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 to prevent system locking. The second is an automatic restart feature that eliminates the need to manually restart the pump in the case of an unexpected trip or fault.   Ideal applications for the Franklin Electric 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.
