Our Library is broken into a trifold approach for information. “Technical Write-Ups” provides links to technical write-ups and product information; “Acknowledgements” contains special acknowledgements concerning our site and content; and, “Educational Links” contains a group of links to other websites containing educational write-ups in the field of industrial water treatment.

Assemble & Test Chemical Pump Head, Pulsafeeder Pump – Video Clips
We created 7 video clips for re-assembling and testing the Pulsafeeder Pump after cleaning the head parts (see photo). Prior to the instructional video clips, the pump head was dismantled and all the header parts (screws, washers, diaphragm, header, and valves, etc.) removed / dismantled and soaked in a light soapy solution of warm water, gently cleaned, then thoroughly rinsed. Please take proper safety precautions by wearing OSHA prescribed eye protection and include protective hand-wear during the cleaning process. The reassembling and testing processes are broken out into video clip sections to allow for easy viewing of each instructional segment, allowing for the discovery and replacement of faulty parts.
Video 1, Introduction – gives an overview of the process, and concludes showing that the pump is tagged with the Date, “Cleaned & Tested,” and Replaced Parts.
Video 2 – Shows how to test the cleaned and assembled Suction Valve. The valve fails to function properly.
Video 3 – The suction valve is replaced with a new valve and tested, then passes.
Video 4 – Shows how to test the cleaned and assembled Discharge Valve. The valve passes.
Video 5 – Demonstrates the process of reassembling the cleaned head plate and components to the pump. Emphasis is given at the end to tagging the pump with the Date, “Cleaned & Tested” (what was done on the pump), and the Replaced Parts.
Video 6 – Shows how to do a pressure test with the pump to determine whether the assembled head is holding pressure. The Bleed Valve fails to hold pressure.
Video 7 – Conclusion: The bleed valve is replaced and the assembly is once again pressure tested. The pressure holds, and the test passes.
A special thanks goes to NAD (North American Dioxide) concerning input on various aspects industrial water treatment in the development of this website. We also greatly appreciated the boost NAD provided in moving us more to a green mentality, such that we adopted that as our initiative in the state of Texas.
Another special thanks goes to our web developer, Anderson Technologies (www.andersontech.com), for working closely with us and designing the site to our specifications, and for making the whole process productive.
Because we are based in Texas and focused on developing excellent customer relationships in Texas, we wanted our website to also focus on Texas. We were pleased to find a video clip of a waterfall located in one of our Texas state parks: Gorman Falls in Colorado Bend State Park, produced by Photo Fly Boy. Credits were not required, but we were impressed enough that we freely want to give credit to www.photoflyboy.com for its excellent work in producing the video used on our home page.
