Armstrong Introduces the Stainless Steel COMPASS R High-Efficiency Circulator

30-05-2018

Armstrong Fluid Technology announced that its next technology evolution COMPASS R20-75 circulator is now available in a stainless steel construction.

Designed for use in portable water systems, the new stainless steel model features a dry rotor design as well as the advanced variable speed Design Envelope technology, Armstrong iECMTM motors, and quadratic control to minimise both energy costs and long-term operating costs for homeowners.

The Stainless Steel COMPASS R High-Efficiency Circulator

The innovative quadratic control algorithm offers operating efficiencies that are better than standard variable speed solutions, and even greater system energy savings are possible with the 0-1V dc input signal connection to external systems.

The COMPASS R is a direct performance replacement for nine competing circulator models and a bolt-to-bolt match for many installed circulators.

 Other innovative features of the stainless steel COMPASS R circulator include:

• Optimised hydraulics with a high-efficiency dry rotor design

• “Posi-start” technology provides smooth starting and automatic de-blocking

• Onboard control panel for easy selection of the appropriate operations mode and flow

• Release latch for easy adjustment of the display orientation and repairability

• Easy-to-access front-facing terminal block with a large wiring chamber

• Replaceable mechanical seal, and any other circulator part required

• Complies with EEI<0.22, NSF-372
