Service & Maintenance
Pumps are increasingly
becoming components of integrated systems in order to provide better control and
efficiency of system processes, and conserve manpower. Goulds Pumps, for
example, has developed “Pump Smart™” an integrated pump control system based on
predetermined pump operating characteristics and VFD drives in lieu of control
valves. As a result, and in an effort to help lead the way, we have also become
systems and controls specialists.
Many of our sales and service personnel have been trained to
specialize in this area to ensure that we properly serve our customers needs and
to promote new and better ideas. Combining these skills with our traditional
skills required to properly apply and keep pumps up and running has created a
very unique industry where diversified experience counts. R.F. MacDonald Co. has
