An Effective Pump Maintenance Solution from Meltric
Meltric Offers an Effective Alternative to Hardwiring Pump Motors, Electrical Equipment, and Control Wiring.
Imagine having the ability to eliminate the hazards associated with pin and sleeve devices. Meltric Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles offer unique features that allow pumps, motors and other equipment to be safely connected with plug and play simplicity. When disconnected, Meltric provides a positive visual verification that the power is off.
Meltric Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles are ideal for pump connections up to 100hp or 200A. Using them to connect power to pumps can reduce downtime for pump servicing by 50% or more. Meltric focuses on safety and preventing exposure to arc flash and live parts. The use of Meltric's device is a NFPA 70e defined normal operation, meaning a qualified technician can safely disconnect power to the pump by removing the plug all without ever having to "suit up." The plug can then be easily locked out to ensure safety. When service work is complete, the technician can reconnect power by plugging the plug back into the receptacle.
Switch-rated plugs and receptacles are ideal for connecting submersible pumps in both indoor and outdoor applications. Their spring-loaded, silver-nickel, butt-style contacts provide consistent and superior electrical performance over thousands of operations. In addition, they carry a minimum NEMA 4x rating, are resistant to wear, corrosion, oxidation, and other factors that contribute to the premature failure of pin and sleeve devices.
