Armstrong’s new pumps hit ‘highest’ standard for motors
Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced that its recently released Design Envelope Generation 5 Pumps meet the IE5 efficiency standard for motors. This includes Armstrong’s Design Envelope Tango parallel pumps and Design Envelope Vertical In-line pumps up to 10hp.
IE5 is the highest efficiency standard currently available for motors on the market. Armstrong’s Design Envelope pumps were already operating well above established North American efficiency standards. The new Generation 5 iECM motor technology means the pumps now also meet the more stringent IE5 standard for European markets.
“Design Envelope Generation 5 pumps with iECMTM motor technology deliver both the lowest installed cost and unmatched efficiency over the operating life of the pump.” said Neil Cooper, Armstrong’s director of Global Sales Enablement. “Meeting the IE5 efficiency standard represents a 20% reduction in motor energy losses from IE4.”
Armstrong Fluid Technology has over 1000 employees worldwide, working in seven manufacturing facilities on three continents. The company is a specialist in designing, engineering and manufacturing intelligent fluid flow equipment, including HVAC, fire safety and plumbing technology.
