XYLEM LAUNCHES NEXT GENERATION, GLOBAL IN-LINE AND END-SUCTION PUMPS

Pumps & Valves

Modernised products offer reduced energy costs and expanded performance

Xylem has launched the next generation, global range of highly efficient in-line and end-suction pumps which updates and streamlines ten product lines from its global portfolio into three. This product platform exceeds the requirements of the updated 2015 ErP regulations with a Minimum Efficiency Index (MEI) rating of 0.4 and provides significantly improved energy savings of up to 23 percent. Additionally, its expanded and optimised hydraulic coverage makes this new series suitable for a much broader range of industrial applications.

The new series includes the e-NSC high performance end-suction pumps, the e-LNE vertical in-line pumps and the e-SH stainless steel end-suction pumps. These models will be supplied with IE3 high efficiency motors in accordance with the European Union motor performance standards.

For an even greater reduction in energy consumption, e-series pumps can be supplied with an optional Xylem Hydrovar variable speed drive. The motor-mounted, space-saving Hydrovar is ‘plug-and-play’ and automatically adjusts operating speeds to optimise pumping system efficiency. As a result, it can provide up to an additional 70 percent reduction in energy costs depending on the application.

Peter Agneborn, director, HVAC and Commercial Buildings business unit, comments: “We want to make selection easier for our customers. The new series consolidates several legacy models into a single, global offering, enabling specifiers to quickly choose the correct Lowara solution for their application.

“The e-series continues our commitment to provide our customers with the highest levels of service throughout the product’s life cycle. Combined with Xylem’s global presence, the improved modularity of the new designs makes maintenance and spare parts management much easier.

“While we have streamlined our offering, the new series does not limit our ability to serve a number of industrial applications. In fact, the extended hydraulic range, multiple configurations, new materials and options dramatically increase the number and complexity of applications we can support.”

The new Lowara e-series provides energy cost savings and enhanced reliability, with simplified specifications, faster lead times and improved pre- and post-sales support. The new pumps will enable consultants, specifiers and engineers to leverage on Xylem’s global presence and production network while creating customised system solutions for their customers supported by localised applications expertise.

 

E-NSC SERIES
Taking end suction pumps to a new level
By combining high efficiency with high flexibility regarding installation, material options and temperature, the new Lowara e-NSC series is the natural choice for water transport, hydronic heating and chiller systems, fire protection systems and a vast number of industrial applications.

High efficiency
New designed high efficiency hydraulics well exceeding the ErP2015 level and IE3 motors set the basis for very low operation costs.

Long service life & easy maintenance
Robust design, different bearing frame sizes and stainless steel replaceable wear rings ensure a long service life. The e-NSC is also designed for easy maintenance and all service points are easily reachable to reduce downtime.

Exactly the right configuration
With materials options spanning from cast iron to duplex stainless steel and different mechanical face seal options, the e-NSC is the right solution for various liquids.

 

E-LNE SERIES
Designed with focus on building services

The high efficiency approach and the hydraulic performance optimized for variable speed control makes the e-LNE the perfect choice for demanding building services applications.

High efficiency
New designed high efficiency hydraulics well exceeding the ErP2015 level and IE3 motors set the basis for very low operation costs.

Long service life & easy maintenance
Robust design, different bearing frame sizes and stainless steel replaceable wear rings ensure a long service life. The e-LNE is also designed for easy maintenance and all service points are easily reachable to reduce downtime.

 

E-SH SERIES
The Lowara e-SH series is a single impeller centrifugal pump made in AISI 316 stainless steel making it the right pump for moving water and aggressive liquids in a vast number of applications where high chemical resistance is needed.

High efficiency and low operation costs
Newly designed high efficiency hydraulics with MEI values well above the ErP2015 level and IE3 motors set the basis for very low operation costs. Equipped with a Hydrovar variable speed pump controller, the duty is always exactly where it should be. And it pays off: reducing the speed by 50% reduces the power consumption by 85%.

Exactly the right configuration
Pump and impellers made in AISI 316 stainless steel with choice of mechanical seals/ motor options makes the e-SH is the right solution for various liquids.
