Chementator: Smart pump control  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Kadant AES (Queensbury, N.Y.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/7373-543) has introduced a patented control technology for high-pressure positive-displacement (HPPD) pumps, which is said to be capable of reducing energy usage by up to 60%. The so-called UniGY PhD (Pump-modeling hydraulic drive) uses pump-modeling software in closed-loop Flux Vector Drives for hydraulic-power generation and to monitor and control HPPD pumps. Distinct from variable-frequency drives, UniGY PhD continuously senses demand, and manages pump speed and applied torque to produce precise flowrates and pressures demanded by the application.
