Extended Motor Products: Efficient Pumps and Circulators

Extended Motor Products (XMP) include efficient motor-driven pumps and circulators that reduce energy consumption and increase your bottom line.

All About Smart Pumps

Pumping systems are essential to the daily operation of most commercial buildings and industrial facilities. With new energy standards for clean-water pumps in place and a great new Energy Rating label program from the Hydraulic Institute, now is the time to evaluate the efficiency of commercial and industrial pumps and circulators.

Benefits of efficient pumps and circulators include:

  • Increased energy savings
  • Decreased lifetime maintenance and operating costs
  • Extended motor life

U.S. Department of Energy 2020 Standards

U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Energy Conservation Standards for the manufacture of certain clean water pumps took effect on January 27, 2020. For additional information on the scope, standard level and uniform test procedure for eligible pumps, see the Hydraulic Institute’s Regulatory Summary for Pumps.

Calculating Pump Energy Savings

The Hydraulic Institute's Energy Rating (ER) Label is designed to clearly indicate the power savings available from pump upgrades and changes. By using the label, manufacturers and distributors can quickly compare the relative power consumption of various models, and utilities can use the Energy Rating score for incentive programs and rebates.

Improving the Energy Consumption of Pumps

This Building Operator Certification (BOC) Technical Webinar teaches viewers to calculate pump system power and energy consumption, explain pump performance curves, discuss options for pump system optimization and more. Follow up by taking the webinar quiz and earning points toward the maintenance of your BOC credential.

Smart Circulators Provide Convenience and Savings for Bellwether Housing

Case Study

Bellwether Housing is the largest nonprofit affordable housing provider in Seattle, managing 2,100 units across the city in buildings that range from new construction to century-old apartments. This diversity can pose a challenge for the maintenance team, so when the opportunity arose to upgrade some hot water recirculation pumps to efficient and adaptive smart pumps, Bellwether jumped at the chance.

Smart Pumps Help Keep Costs Down at Providence Down Manor

Case Study

Providence Down Manor is an independent retirement community in Hood River, OR. To increase efficiency while maintaining high comfort standards for its residents, the facility installed hot water pumps with smart circulators, which have integral controls that self-regulate the speed of the pump to match the needs of the system, adapting to pressure or flow requirements and reducing power when demand is lower.

Pump System Training and Certification Guide Savings

Article

Garver was called to audit the pumping system of a facility with four large (350-horse power) vertical turbine pumps. “No cost” and “low cost” Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs) were recommended as actions that would increase efficiency, reduce energy consumption, increase reliability, and lower the total cost of operation.
