Flowrox has announced the launch of the Flowrox Expulse™ product, designed to assist during pump and dampener maintenance by reducing noise and vibration associated with traditional methods, which can lead to pipe damage that can cause breakage and a loss of revenue.
The Flowrox Expulse is designed for use by companies in the mining, metallurgy, oil and gas, and other industries in which pipes and valves are used to move materials or fluids using pressure. Traditional pulsating pump dampeners are known to produce unbalanced shaking that can result in failure or operational drawbacks, which in turn require additional add-ons and devices to counter its challenges.
Engineering innovation and ingenuity have helped Flowrox design a complete solution for this effective pulsation dampener system, which quiets noise while settling pressure peaks and ensuring a continuous fluid flow.
One of the most noticeable features on the Flowrox Expulse is the product’s ability to reduce energy consumption by up to 10%, largely as a result of its absorption of up to 90% of pulsations.
In addition, the device’s reduction in the hammering of the pipeline and pump can lead to extended operational lifetime for the pump bearing and gearbox – two critical components in pipeline operations that face wear and tear in high performance environments.
“A shutdown due to a threat to pipe integrity can not only be costly, but hamper the ability to generate revenue for clients who depend on this type of equipment,” said Todd Loudin, President of Flowrox. “Our company has designed the Flowrox Expulse to help reduce the chance of pipe damage and breakage in a cost-effective manner.”
The robust solution offered by the Flowrox Expulse flexible pulsation dampener prevents the collection of sediment, particles or residue thanks to its built-in self-cleaning operation – further adding to the benefits of ease of installation and care-free maintenance.
Standing behind its product’s quality performance, Flowrox includes a one-year guarantee and will replace the hose set in the event of a breakage while using the Flowrox Expulse system.
