Although the use of transmitters in pressure measurement is growing, mechanical pressure gauges are still used on most systems as local pressure display to back up electrical readings. The selection and installation of these gauges can be difficult in certain locations. Harsh conditions that can require special consideration include vibration, pressure pulsation, overpressure, corrosive media and extreme process and ambient temperatures. This article is designed to address harsh conditions with best practice recommendations to extend gauge life and provide for the safest installation possible.

Introduced in August 2008, the Retroflo RPC_2000 Pump Control System was designed to control pump stations as a whole, rather than just the individual components within them. Through continuous dynamic monitoring of the characteristics through a range of wet well levels and pump speeds, the system uses the full range of pumping data available to optimize performance. It can be retrofitted to existing stations or installed in new stations.
