New High Speed, Two-Way Communications Capabilities Give Operators Greater Feedback and Control to Maximize Plant Performance
Ivyland, PA – April 11, 2017 LMI, a leading manufacturer of controlled-volume metering pumps, and a brand of Accudyne Industries, announced the EXCEL™ XR Communications Model, which is the third member of the EXCEL XR line of Intelligent Metering Pumps. This pump series was engineered from the ground up to meet the process control requirements of a wide range of applications, including water and waste water treatment, agricultural, chemical, oil & gas, power generation, pulp & paper, and textile industries.
Expanded features in the EXCEL XR Communications Model include Modbus RTU and Profibus DP protocols to facilitate high speed, two-way communications. This allows communication between different devices and a central SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system for control, monitoring and troubleshooting activities. It gives plant operators greater feedback and control for their chemical feed processes, and this two-way communication helps operators maximize plant performance while minimizing plant downtime.
The three different EXCEL XR pump models are designed to make pump selection easy, by enabling users to simply pick the features that address their specific needs. The EXCEL XR Manual model includes standard features. The Enhanced model provides a broader range of capabilities, and the new Communications Model adds two-way communication. All members of the EXCEL XR family feature a backlit color display with convenient navigation in five languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. All pumps feature a global network of authorized industry experts, to support operators long after the initial installation.
A wide range of options and accessories are available to customize EXCEL XR metering pumps to any application, including backpressure valves, safety valves, pulsation dampeners, calibration columns, and degassing valves and systems. Multiple liquid end materials, including polypropylene, PVDF, and 316L stainless steel are available to handle a wide range of chemicals, polymers, viscous fluids, and slurries for any application requirement.
