CINCINNATI, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dover's Hydro Systems (NYSE: DOV), the world's largest independent manufacturer of chemical proportioning and dispensing systems, introduced Hydro Xtreme, an electric diaphragm pump designed to meet the needs of farms using highly aggressive chemicals, and to better manage fluctuations in water pressure, temperature and environmental factors. Hydro Xtreme is available in two versions, one designed for sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide and one for use with chlorine dioxide.
Hydro Xtreme offers several advantages compared to peristaltic pumps, such as longer life, more precise chemical dilution and no need for costly squeeze tubes or additional controllers for water meters and pump circuits.
"Maintaining a clean water supply is essential to keeping animals healthy and farms profitable," said Scott Campbell, Global Product Manager, Hydro Systems. "Increasingly, farms are moving toward electric diaphragm metering pumps to add essential yet harsher treatment chemicals to lines. Hydro's new pump offerings are better equipped to handle chemicals like sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide and chlorine dioxide than standard water-driven pumps."
The Hydro Xtreme electric diaphragm pump features the following benefits:
Greater accuracyover a longer period of time: the pump does not use squeeze tubes that can lose effectiveness and cause over or under treatment of water.
Versatility: the pump can be programmed manually or with a water meter signal.
Chemical compatibilityof wetted parts: compatible with the most common chemicals used in water treatment like sodium hypochlorite, chlorine dioxide and hydrogen peroxide.
Reliability: the pump is water- and UV-resistant and meets IEC specification IP65. It also has a two-year warranty that results in less maintenance and product downtime and can operate safely even in high water pressure conditions.
Reduced cost of ownership: a separate controller is not needed to operate the pump and water meter system. A built-in microprocessor system control is designed into the pump with LCD display.
Easy installation: the pump can come pre-wired to interact with a water meter resulting in reduced assembly time and eliminating incorrect assembly.
Easy maintenance: the pump is dust proof and can handle wash down duty.
