This modular system streamlines pump and motor configuration

| By Mary Page Bailey

Pioneer Pump ElectricPAK (photo) is a modular, electric pump package that helps users receive a pump-and-motor configuration onsite more quickly and efficiently than custom-built units. Each configured assembly includes a high-performance pump and electric motor that can provide high heads and efficiency. The unit also features a rigid motor stool that keeps the pump and motor permanently aligned. This feature eliminates the need for time-consuming alignment work or special tools upon delivery or when the unit is moved. The ElectricPAK’s modular system, combined with an extensive range of motor choices, allows users to select the most efficient pump based on the duty point. Users can also choose from a stationary base or drag skid. Helping them make their selection is this company’s proprietary FE Select online specification tool. — Franklin Electric Co., Fort Wayne, Ind.
