Permanent Magnet Technology Offers Efficient Municipal Alternative
Pumps & Systems magazine recently featured an article from Franklin Electric Senior Portfolio Manager, Jeff Frank. With permanent magnet motor technology, you now have a high-efficiency alternative to both vertical line shaft turbine systems (VLSTs) and submersible induction motor systems. Here’s a sneak peek into the article…
"In the past, VLSTs were thought by some to be more efficient than submersible motor systems and even outperformed them in some cases. However, with the permanent magnet motor technology, the playing field has changed, and an advanced solution now offers its own set of advantages.”
Same Look. Same Installation. New Technology.
It’s all about efficiency. The MagForce™ High Efficiency Motor System offers a 90% motor efficiency rating, which is up to 12% higher than traditional submersible motor designs. With permanent magnet technology, you can now offer an investment payback of less than 2 years in most long- or continuous run applications*.
