PENTAIR Sells to Emerson the Valves and Controls Divison

Flow Factor Sells Penberthy Jets and Level Controls

PRESS RELEASE

Pentair Announces Agreement to Sell Valves & Controls Business to Emerson 
MANCHESTER, United Kingdom – August 18, 2016 – Pentair plc (NYSE: PNR) today announced it has reached an agreement to sell its Valves & Controls business to Emerson (NYSE: EMR). The cash purchase price is $3.15 billion, subject to customary working capital adjustments. The transaction is anticipated to be completed late in 2016 or early in 2017 and is subject to customary closing conditions and necessary regulatory approvals. 
Randall J. Hogan, Pentair Chairman and CEO stated, “We expect this transaction to provide Pentair the ability to advance our strategy, drive growth, and focus resources on three segments, all of which we believe have attractive growth characteristics.” 
Pentair acquired the Valves & Controls business in 2012 through an all-stock merger with the Flow Control business of Tyco International Ltd. Valves & Controls’ 2015 revenue was $1.8 billion. “Through the hard work of dedicated employees, we significantly improved Valves & Controls’ operating profit, creating shareholder value,” said Mr. Hogan. “Additionally, the Flow Control acquisition provided the scale and capital structure to further enable our strategy for growth. ” 
Following the closing of the transaction, Pentair’s business will consist of three segments, Water Quality Systems, Flow & Filtration Solutions, and Technical Solutions, aligned with global trends to deliver solutions around water quality and availability, equipment and building protection, industrial and process efficiency, and food and beverage processing. 
“We remain narrowly diversified, which allows us to prioritize investments and affords us opportunities to grow organically and use our strengthened balance sheet as opportunities arise,” said Mr. Hogan. 
Citi and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are serving as financial advisors to Pentair and Foley & Lardner LLP is providing legal counsel.

Carlo Gavazzi Soft Starters for Pumping Applications

Flow Factor sells Carlo Gavazzi Products


April 2016 – CARLO GAVAZZI is proud to announce the launch of the RSWT Series, the self-optimizing soft starting solution for water pumps up to 75Hp. The global demand for water is expected to see a consistent growth over the coming years. As a result of the growing population across the globe, there is more demand for water facilities and therefore pumps. Achieving optimal control during starting and stopping of a pump can be challenging. Unless proper solutions are adopted, some undesired effects such as water hammering, cavitation and voltage disturbances can result.


The RSWT Series is a 3-phase pump soft starter, in which all three phases are controlled to achieve current balancing on all phases, to minimize vibrations during starting and stopping of centrifugal pumps, and to minimize the inrush current. Through a dedicated self-learning algorithm, the RSWT Series achieves very smooth starting and stopping, with minimal setting adjustments required from the user. Within three to six starts, the RSWT Series reaches optimization. On a positive note, the self-learning routine is active at ensuing starts to ensure optimal starting and stopping parameters are used even if the load changes. This results in less water hammering and reduces the risk of cavitation.
Two RSWT Series types are offered: the V00/V01 provides a single adjustment setting for the soft-starting and stopping time of the pump, whereas the V10/V11 includes Class 10 overload protection and soft starting and stopping times that can be individually set for more accurate pump control. With the launch of the RSWT Series, CARLO GAVAZZI has further strengthened its soft starter portfolio, by offering yet another ideal solution, directed at a specific application for markets such as agriculture, water treatment, and HVAC.
Other specifications and features include:
Output voltage rating up to 600VAC
45mm housing for up to 20HP (25A)switching
75mm housing for up to 50HP (55A) switching
90mm housing for up to 75HP (90A) switching
LED indication for status and alarms
Diagnostic alarm outputs
Self-learning algorithm for centrifugal pumps
cUL Listed and CE

Penberthy Jet Pump for Oil Separation

Flow Factor can offer a Penberthy Jet pump for Oil Separation Processes





Penberthy educators may be used in oil/water separation processes to purify water prior to release.  A recirculation pump is used with the educator to pull air or gas into impure water.  The air or gas then bonds with oil, forming a frothy top layer.  This froth may then be skimmed off.

This application requires the air to be finely divided.  The most common units used are Penberthy Model LH, LM or ELL eductors, based on motive pressure and discharge pressure.

Call for pricing or application help at 216-765-4231.
