Duplex pump set overview

section-cd781c0

A duplex pump set is a system of two pumps that are connected in parallel. This means that both pumps are capable of pumping fluid, and they can share the load. Duplex pump sets are often used in applications where reliability and redundancy are important. Sometimes referred to as duty standby pump sets, one pump will be in operation and the other in standby in case of sudden demand or pain pump failure.

Load-sharing duplex pump sets: These sets are designed to share the load equally. This means that each pump will pump half of the total flow rate.

Duty/standby duplex pump sets: These sets are designed with one pump as the duty pump and the other pump as the standby pump. The duty pump is always running, and the standby pump is only turned on if the duty pump fails.

Duplex pump sets offer a number of advantages, including:

custom-upload
Increased reliability

If one pump fails, the other pump can take over and continue to pump fluid. This can help to prevent downtime and ensure that the system is always operational.

custom-upload
Reduced maintenance costs

Duplex pump sets can help to reduce maintenance costs by allowing the pumps to share the load. This can extend the life of the pumps and reduce the need for repairs.

Improved safety

 Duplex pump sets can help to improve safety by providing a backup in case of a pump failure. This can help to prevent spills and other accidents.
