Pivotrol Pump Features PowerPivot Technology
Spirax Sarco Inc., Blythewood, S.C., reports it has engineered its Pivotrol® Pressure Powered Condensate (PPC) Pump to provide dependable steam system condensate recovery for rapid-cycling processes under all pressure and temperature conditions. The company provides a 3 million-cycle or three-year warranty on the pump, with a lifetime spring warranty. It also offers an optional 5 million-cycle or five-year extended warranty.
The pump features PowerPivot® technology, by which pivots replace pins and linkages, thus
reducing friction and wear; and a special damper that uses the hydraulic inertia of the collected
condensate, thus reducing mechanical shock as the valve actuators shift. The Pivotrol internal
mechanism may be retrofitted to existing Spirax Sarco PPC pumps.
