Goulds Water Technology (GWT) is donating a variable speed drive system to the Empire Farm Days Show in Seneca Falls, New York, Aug. 8 to 10. Welcoming over 60,000 attendees and attracting nearly 600 exhibitors, the Empire Farm Days Show is the largest outdoor agricultural trade show in the Northeast.
The state-of-the-art GWT variable speed drive system — designed with a 150L15 submersible pump, motor and Aquavar SPD variable speed single pump drive — will pump water from an on-site well to irrigate the show grounds and supply water for farm demonstrations held throughout the show.
“Assembled and tested in Auburn, New York, our variable speed drive system can be used for a variety of farming needs, including irrigating crops and supplying water for livestock,” said Jeff Rook, Territory Manager – New York, GWT. “We are thrilled to donate the variable speed drive system to meet water needs for one of the largest trade shows in the farming and agricultural market, held just a short distance from our New York sites.”
The 2017 show marks the 84th anniversary of the event that began in 1931 as the Potato Field Days organized by the Empire State Potato Growers Association. In 1967, the event was renamed Empire Farm Days, and in 1988 Rodman Lott and Son Farms in Seneca Falls became the permanent host of the show.
More information about GWT’s variable speed drive system:
· GWT L-Series Submersible Pumps: Designed for wells that are 6 inches or larger, the L-Series Submersible Pumps feature tungsten carbine bearings that provide superior shaft protection and prevent pump wear and a superior sand-handling design that ensures a longer pump life and fewer repairs. They also contain a built-in check valve that protects the pumps from water hammer and reverse water flow. The L-Series Submersible Pumps are NSF/ANSI 61 Annex G certified and comply with strict standards for safety and drinking water. To further ensure high quality performance and reliability, it is recommended that L-Series Submersible Pumps are paired with GWT 6” submersible motors.
· Aquavar SPD Variable Speed Single Pump Drive: The single pump drive is designed to boost pump pressure for ground water and irrigation applications. It comes standard with dual phase input, which enables the drive to be used for three-phase and single-phase input. The pump drive also features a hand/auto option that allows the drive to run at full speed without a pressure transducer for longer periods of time. This is ideal for a new water well or system start up. It is preset for submersible or surface motor applications and can be ordered with or without a filter to efficiently meet the needs of a variety of submersible applications.
