Star Delta starting is the best known and perhaps the most widely used low voltage starting method.
It is used to start the pump's motor with lower levels of mechanical stress and with current limitation during start-up; it does this with the aid of a timed system which switches the control contractors installed inside the panel.
Star-delta starting reduces starting current and torque to values of 33% (1/3) of those measured during direct starting.
During start-up, the currents flowing through components are lower than the motor's related current.
Making a definitive diagnosis as to the presence of iron-reducing bacteria within a water well, pipeline etc. can be difficult. Which is why Geoquip is proud to offer a patented Biological Activity Reaction (BART) Test kit specifically designed to detect the presence of iron-related bacteria.
