Ser-Ductor® Pumped Agitation: A Ser-Ductor system provides solution agitation with a centrifugal pump by drawing liquid from a tank and returning it to the tank through a sparger system, similar to that used for air agitation, with eductors strategically placed along the sparger pipe. SER-DUCTOR agitation delivers 5 times the pump output at each nozzle.It effectively distributes the desired level of agitation to critical areas in your process tank. The system is driven by your choice of vertical, magnetic drive, self-priming or mechanical seal pump. With SER-DUCTOR systems, solutions are agitated without the introduction of foreign matter such as airborne dirt or compressor oil, as is often the case with air agitation. Whether the solution is a cleaner, a rinse, a plating bath or other process solution, it is only this fluid that is re circulated by the SER-DUCTOR system.
Filter Cartridges: Serfilco offers a wide selection of filter cartridge styles, material selections and porosities to satisfy almost any filtration application in the metal finishing and electronics industries. They can be used with Serfilco filter chambers and systems or as replacements for other single or multiple cartridge housings. Serfilco offers stock cartridges in minimum quantities.
Lead Removal Cartridges: The inert molecular sieve construction of the ATS material internally and irreversibly locks onto any lead in solution reducing the concentration to below U.S. EPA guidelines with a very short contact time. The ATS material works well in hard water as well as in the presence of iron, manganese, magnesium and calcium ions. It functions on the principle of chemically "absorbing" the lead ions rather than insolubilizing the lead and will not put aluminum, copper or zinc ions into the treated water.
The CLR Series has been evaluated against the test protocol as outlined in NSF standard #53 by a certified third-party laboratory. The results show that a standard 9¾" cartridge at 0.75 GPM will effectively reduce a 150 PPB spiked feed of lead to less than 10 PPB for 4000 gallons in a low pH, low alkalinity solution and for 3000 gallons in a high pH, high alkalinity solution.
Electronic Flow Instrumentation: These high performance electronic flow monitoring/ control systems consist of three components:
- Flow Meter
- In-line/Insertion Flow Sensor
- Installation Fitting
A variety of different configurations is available to provide a system that will monitor or control the movement of fluids and is compatible with corrosive chemicals. The instruments are waterproof for long life in shop environments. A system may be assembled to monitor a process flow rate (GPM, LPM or any other units) or keep track of accumulated flow for a period of time (totalize gallons or liters). Instruments can be selected that provide a pre-set electrical output signal for batch mixing applications or triggering acid and caustic feed pumps. They can also be interfaced with other instruments in your plant, including a computer. The accuracy and reliability come from patented Flow Sensor designs that convert fluid velocity in a pipe into an electronic signal. The signal is measured and channeled through microprocessor based solid state circuitry to the appropriate meter: flow rate, totalizer or controller. Cost effectiveness of this equipment makes plant applications feasible. The initial investment pays for itself quickly by providing cost savings from improved process efficiency. These systems are an excellent choice for the simple to the complex industrial application.

Clamps & Floating Balls: Solid polypropylene balls floating on an open tank will reduce the exposed surface area - up to 90%, thereby greatly lessening the emission of objectionable fumes and odors. A carpet of "Energy Controlling Balls" will reduce heat or refrigeration loss and evaporation in open tank installations, such as those used in plating. Access to the tank is not impaired. Balls maintain compact coverage as parts move in and out. Solid polypropylene balls will not sink and have a longer service life than hollow balls. Polypropylene is non-toxic and resistant to most chemicals.

Pump Priming Chambers: Centrifugal pumps may require a priming chamber as an auxiliary means of lifting liquid from below the pump centerline to the pump inlet or from the liquid surface over a tank wall. The answer to this requirement is this line of easy to use and install priming chambers. Once the priming chamber is filled, the pump can be started and re-started without subsequent re-priming. Each time the pump is turned off, the priming chamber retains a volume of liquid. When the pump is re-started, it pumps the entrapped liquid out of the priming chamber, creating a vacuum in its place. Atmospheric pressure then forces liquid from the tank or sump up the suction hose or pipe to the pump, thus completing the prime process
