The EL-FI Drainage Control Monitor (DCM) cuts running costs and extends the lifetime of
Eliminates most water-level detectors
Water-level detectors often fail by being blocked by sludge. The El-FI DCM overcomes this problem by using the pump motor as its own load sensor. El-FI DCM uses an algorithm to automatically calculate appropriate pump run and pause periods to continuously adjust pump operation to suit the pit filling rate.
Minimal energy consumption
Changing the pumping cycle automatically to suit the rate of water flowing into the pit cuts energy consumption dramatically. Moreover, this operational mode works well even if the pump is immersed in sludge or water/mud mixtures of varying viscosity.
Prolonged pump life
As shorter running and longer pauses result from optimizing pumping cycles, there is less wear and tear on pump components. In turn this means less pump maintenance and fewer spare parts.
No DCM maintenance costs
Unlike water-level detectors, which often demand constant attention, EL-FI DCM units are highly reliable electronic devices that are maintenance-free and protected in a cabinet.
