We stopped by the Jebao Booth at Interzoo 2014 to check out the new RW Series of propeller pumps and their new dosing system(DP-4). The dosing system is pretty straight forward, and resembles other dosing pumps in functionality. It has a control panel on top to program each channel(reminiscent of GHL’s old dosing pump), and has a port on the back to attach a slave unit.
The RW Series of propeller pumps succeed the very popular WP line. The RW pump has a different look to widen the flow and also make them quieter than the already silent WP’s. The controller has some significant changes. Multiple pumps can now be controlled together in a master/slave format from a single controller. The controller will communicate with the designated slave pumps wirelessly, and can handle up to 8 slave pumps. Each slave pump’s output can be adjusted individually, while the master pump controls the wave function. There is also a ‘Feed’ button and a light sensor to reduce flow at night. The new RW series has 8 different selectable flow rates down to 10%, while the older WP only had 3 choices(100%/75%/50%).
There will be 4 models available:
- The RW4 maxes out at 4000l/hr(around 1000 gph) at 10-watts.
- The RW8 maxes out at 8000l/hr(around 2000 gph) at 23-watts.
- The RW15 maxes out at 13000l/hr(around 3250 gph) at 40-watts.
- The RW20 maxes out at 20000l/hr(around 5000 gph) at 60-watts.
Considering how popular the WP series is, Jebao could have another hit on their hands with the RW.
