Solar Metering Pumps


Solar Power is quick becoming the preferred power source to operate chemical metering pumps. Solar powered chemicals pumps are being used for Methanol injection, corrosion inhibitor injection and other chemical applications. Solar powered injection pumps utilize solar panels ranging from 85 Watts to 150 Watts, depending on the energy requirements of the solar powered pump. The solar panels provide power during the day to operate the solar powered pump and to charge the batteries used for non-daylight operation.

Stroke Length Adjuster

Sidewinder Pumps introduces our new Stroke Length Adjuster for AC / Solar Pump lines. The innovative design allows for 0-100% adjustment while pump is running. This provides accurate flow control options especially on duplex pumps with different size plungers. Setting the Stroke Adjuster to 0 will allow maintenance to be done to that pump without having to take pump out of service. The Stroke Adjuster can be retrofitted to existing pumps.
