FILTER PUMP CONTROL BOX 208V SE
A control box provides the physical interface to allow an operator to control a piece of equipment and monitor its performance. Control boxes typically contain a variety of instruments such as switches, knobs, sliders and buttons. These are connected to the equipment and are used to control it, allowing operators to start, stop or adjust various functions.
Control boxes also often contain instruments that provide data from sensors. The data is used to ensure that the machine is functioning correctly and allows operators to make control decisions. The actual connections from the controls to the equipment usually consist of relays, timers and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Controls are typically located inside electrical enclosures to prevent accidental contact, unauthorized access or damage to the controls. Many newer control box models also use touch screens to provide operators with intuitive and fine-tuned control over the processes they work with.
Controls of all kinds are integral parts of restaurant equipment operations. A control is a switch or other device by which a machine is regulated. A control may be manual or automatically operated. An electro-mechanical control typically consists of multiple relays, timers, and/or counters wired together on an enclosure panel. Electro-mechanical control is also referred to simply as "Relay Control", which is a more accurate term since solid state electronic relays, timers, and counters are standard components. Contactors, motor and compressor starters, valves, thermostats, and other output devices are used to turn on/off motors, indicator lights, heating elements, and other components used in the equipment.
A particulate filter is a device composed of fibrous or porous materials which remove solid particulates. A water filter removes impurities by lowering contamination of water using a fine physical barrier.
Grease filters are designed to remove grease particles from the exhaust hoods in a kitchen air stream. Exhaust systems that have broken, missing, or undersized air filters are prone to collect accumulations of highly combustible grease deposits throughout the entire duct system. Air filters or grease filters may also be used inside of cooking, beverage, and refrigeration equipment to reduce the build up of crumbs and dust, and to limit grease migration.
Fryer filters help remove particles from your fryer systems and preserve food quality. They act as a fine sieve, cleaning the oil of food particulate as it passes through. Fryer filter papers are available in both single sheets and with an envelope design, into which the oil is poured.
Finally, there are air filters used in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems and air handlers. These filters are designed to trap dust, pollen, and even bacteria and viruses during ventilation while protecting the internal components of the heating and cooling system.
A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action.
Pumps can be classified by their method of displacement into positive displacement pumps, impulse pumps, velocity pumps, gravity pumps, steam pumps and vacuum and valveless pumps. There are three basic types of pumps: positive displacement, centrifugal and axial-flow pumps. In centrifugal pumps the direction of flow of the fluid changes by ninety degrees as it flows over an impeller, while in axial flow pumps the direction of flow is unchanged. When a casing contains only one revolving impeller, it is called a single-stage pump. When a casing contains two or more revolving impellers, it is called a double- or multi-stage pump.
Vacuum pumps are simply compressors that take in contained gas at a pressure lower than atmospheric pressure, compress it, and discharge the gas at atmospheric pressure creating a vacuum where the contained gas originated.
