Lorentz solar powered pump systems utilize the DC input from the PV solar array connected to the pump controller and supply that DC power to drive the motor. The controllers have inputs for water level both in the bore and for tank filling. Pump protection is also inbuilt. An Android device can be used to program the pump controller allowing even greater customised control of the Lorentz pumping system.
Lorentz solar pump features
SAVE MONEY USE SOLAR POWER
Solar energy from the sun can be converted to electrical energy through the installation of a DC Power Photovoltaic solar panel array. The DC power produced by the panels can then be fed to a pump controller to power a submersible water bore pump. The pump controller matches the available power from the panels to the output of the pump as conditions and power outputs constantly change throughout the day.
Lorentz Submersible Pumps
Multi-stage centrifugal pumps
Multi-stage centrifugal pumps have series of impellers arranged on a common shaft through the centreline of the pump. Each impeller draws water through it’s eye and discharges radially as the motor spins the pump. Water is channeled from the discharge of the impeller to the eye of the next impeller increasing the pressure at each stage. A housing or bowl holds each individual impeller or the impeller stack depending on design in alignment and is part of the interchange of water from one stage to the next. Centrifugal pumps are restricted to a minimum speed to maintain efficiency and are suited to high volume outputs.
Helical Rotor pumps
Lorentz Helical Rotor pumps are constructed with a hard stainless steel rotor shaped like a smooth cork screw, fitted into a rubber stator with a similar shape. As the rotor turns water is drawn in and squeezed out from the discharge end of the pump assembly. This type of pump is very efficient at low shaft speeds, low volumes and is also suitable for high head applications.
We ustilise the latest technology
Lorentz PumpScanner is a free downloadable App for Android phones and tablets. It is used by the pump technician to quickly configure the pump system and register the pump for warranty purposes. We set the pump up prior to despatch ensuring the setup is complete before it arrives on site. The end user can also use PumpScanner to view live and historic data from the pump.
