Armstrong Fluid Technology has introduced a new stainless steel Compass wet rotor circulator featuring its design envelope (DE) energy saving technology.
Compass circulators offer high flow capacity and eight optional control modes that deliver high energy efficiency for lower operating costs.
The new SSU model also features a threaded union connection that is easy to adapt to copper, PEX, or CPVC plumbing.
“The versatile new Compass SSU can replace a wide range of fixed-speed circulators and is very easy to select, install, and commission,” said Andy Januszewski, marketing manager with Armstrong.
“DE technology, combined with ECM motors, saves 50% or more energy and related carbon emissions over fixed speed circulators,” Armstrong said.
Other features of the new Compass SSU include eight operation modes – including an “Auto” algorithm, four sensorless modes and three fixed modes.
The circulators come in 50Hz and 60Hz designs, feature up to 1.26l/s flow or up to 6.1m head, and have a 5W to 45W power range.
