Triton's liquid ring systems (T1500, T2000, T2500) can use water or other service liquid. The water is spun in the pump to create the vacuum, and circulates in a loop through the water tank, which holds 250 gals when full to the middle of the sight glasses. Under full vacuum load conditions for an
How often do I need to change the water in the water tank on my liquid ring T1500, T2000, or T2500 system?
The water is used as a sealing fluid in the liquid ring pump, and actually allows the vacuum to be created. The water can get contaminated with solids such as dirt, barite, sand, etc., that can carry over via the airstream through the pump and into the water supply tank. We recommend changing the
Triton units are available that are powered by either an electric motor or a diesel engine. The electric motor requires that a certified electrician make the hookup, so electric-powered units are generally suited for longer terms installations. If a unit needs to be moved often, then a diesel unit makes sense. There are operating
These machines are set up for 460V/60 Hz or 360V/50 Hz operation: 125 HP full load - 142 amps 100 HP full load – 115 amps Startup >350 amps, even with soft start Working load 125 HP – 130-135 amps Working load 100 HP – 108-110 amps We recommend a 200A breaker. If powered
The Kraken is Triton’s patented technology that allows continuous vacuuming and discharge of product to a remote location. The technology relies on synchronization between the vacuum unit and the Kraken. The heart of the Kraken is a positive displacement hydraulic unit, utilizing twin cylinders to push out the product. Triton regulates the discharge pressure
Generally, the T500 units use a 3" or 4" suction hose, and a 4" discharge hose. The T1500 systems typically use a 4" intake hose, while the T2500 systems use a 6" hose.
