Armstrong Fluid Technology announced an ECM Pump-Less-Volute, a new variable-speed version of the popular Gold Series Pump-Less-Volute. The new ECM Pump-Less-Volute uses a permanent magnet motor that is up to 40% more efficient than a standard induction motor.
Armstrong Pump-Less-Volute kits (PLV) are a complete repair solution for Armstrong dry rotor S&H and 1050 & 1060 Series. Armstrong standard and ECM PLVs can also be used to re-build or upgrade select B&G or Taco circulator models. The new ECM solution is a very effective energy upgrade. It’s perfect for contractors who want to install a more energy-efficient pump without making changes to the pipe or the casing.
