The Flow Inducer Product Line:
RainMaster Flow Inducer Kits are specially designed for rainwater collection systems using the highest quality components and packaged in a complete and easy to install bundle at an unbeatable price point. Using time-tested Goulds pump technology, these pump stations perfectly fill the performance gap between traditional standalone pumps and more expensive high-end pump stations.
All RainMaster Flow Induction Kits include:
The balanced flow pump controller provides user-adjustable constant pressure using an energy-efficient variable speed pump motor. Using pressure measurements from the transducer, the controller adjusts the pump speed in order to maintain constant pressure, rather than the traditional on-off switched operation of traditional systems. The balanced flow controller provides continuous monitoring of motor current draw, voltage, temperature and loss of pressure. Systems ship factory-set at 50 PSI but can be easily adjusted to higher pressures in the field.
Flow Induction Chamber: The RainMaster Flow Induction Chamber is a specially designed water sealed pump housing which directs incoming water flow over the pump motor, providing necessary cooling, 15º pump inclination for longer bearing life, floating extractor intake, convenient 2" threaded output and compression sealed wiring port. Specially designed stainless steel motor centralizers with PVC pads keep the pump assembly stabilized and centered in the induction chamber for uniform flow and cooling. Vibration dampening rubber feet on the incline supports help protect fiberglass and plastic tanks from abrasion and reduce motor noise. A stainless steel lifting lug and tether assist in lowering the system into the tank. As with the motor assembly, the flow induction chamber is constructed with potable quality components.
Energy Efficient: By converting single phase input to 3 phase pump output, the controller can reduce energy consumption by 50%.
Raintight Controller: The controller is rated NEMA 3R (Raintight) so it may be located outdoors. It must be mounted vertically.
Dry-run Protection: This function protects the system from running dry. When the pressure transducer (included) detects inadequate water supply, the pump is automatically disabled. The controller will re-test for water supply until water is detected.
Broken Pipe Protection: The drive will turn off if the system pressure drops 20 PSI below the system set point pressure for a minimum of 30 seconds. (This fault must be manually reset, it will not clear automatically, this may prevent property damage if a pipe breaks.)
Auxiliary Switch Input: For connection of an external switch or control device used to start and stop the pump. Devices such as an over-pressure switch, level (float) switch or any other non-powered switch
In order to provide the highest water quality and safety, the RainMaster and Flow Inducer product labeling shown in the image is not applied to production units.
