Pumps & Motors
Pumping systems are essential to the daily operation of most commercial buildings and industrial facilities. With new energy standards for clean-water pumps taking effect in 2020 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.
Smart Pumps Help Keep Costs Down at Providence Down Manor
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.
Smart Circulators Provide Convenience and Savings for Bellwether Housing
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.
