  • Waterside Design - Innovative Energy Engineering

    2018-3-23 · Almost all pump applications benefit from variable speed. For larger pumps a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) varies the speed (typically down to 25-30% depending on model). Smaller pumps use EC Motors and often have integrated controls with integrated pressure-control that can save energy in systems without complex control systems.

  • Advantages of a Caleffi DirtMag in Hydronic Systems

    Variable speed pumps are highly magnetic, which means they not only act as a filter catching dirt, but they hold onto metal debris in the system which causes premature pump failure. The photo to the right, supplied to us by Caleffi, is a great illustration of what happens when metal comes into contact with a variable speed pump.

  • zone valves vs. zone pumps — Heating Help: The Wall

    I'm moving form zone pumps to zone valves When you start using outdoor reset, your pumps begin to urn all the time. While little Nrf's use only 45 to 90 watts, or 007s or brutes, start adding four or five zones of these together and your talking a .5kw draw times 24 hours times 30 days per month equals 360kw per month for a home.

    2007-7-1 · By Mark Eatherton Hydronic Heating Contractor During the ISH Frankfurt show in March 1999, I was exposed to a product that made my mind race. I saw, for the first time, a variable-speed, constant-pressure, variable-flow concept circulator for use in residential hydronic applications. The introduction of this product to the North American market has been a long time in coming.
