Improving Pump Efficiency

Conserving energy, reducing operating expenses is not all about the pumps

From the April 2011 issue of HPAC Engineering

Applications engineer/technical services supervisor, Taco, Inc.

As energy costs rise, equipment suppliers, system designers, and operators focus increasingly on maximizing the efficiency of HVAC-system components to conserve energy and reduce operating expenses.

Taco 1900 VFD Pumps Enhance Building Efficiency

At the AHR Expo, Las Vegas, NV, January 31, 2011 – Taco”s new 1900 VFD close-coupled, in-line pumps with integrated variable frequency drives are designed to enhance pump and building efficiency. The single- or three-phase 1900 VFD line greatly increases energy efficiency and building comfort.

Taco 1900 VFD pumps are available in five basic models ranging in size from 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ to 2″ x 2″ with a flow range of 10 to 250 GPM, and head capability to 160 feet. Rear, pull-out design allows servicing of the pump without disturbing the piping.

The 1900 VFDs can be installed anywhere in the piping layout. They are self-supported by system piping, requiring no additional strapping or external support. Each can be mounted horizontally or vertically. The motor”s permanently sealed, grease- lubricated ball bearings slotseys make the 1900 Series pump virtually maintenance free.

All 1900 Series pumps come standard with ceramic seals to meet a wide range of application requirements. The mechanical seal is an innovative design that combines all components of the rotating element into one assembly, making seal replacement quick and easy. One size seal fits all models.

Typically, the payback period for installing VFD pumps in place of single-speed pumps is less than 12 months. Because HVAC systems are rarely required to operate at full capacity, VFD pumps gently ramp-up and ramp-down operation to match system flow to actual heating and cooling demands, enhancing overall system efficiency.

4900 Series

The Taco 4900 Series Air Separators help you save money and prolong the life of system pumps, piping and components by removing air and dirt from the system to prevent:

  • Reduced heat transfer
  • Loss of efficiency
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Pump damage
  • Increased energy consumption
  • Irritating noise.

The high efficiency Taco 4900 Series Air Separator uses patented PALL ring technology to clear the system of microbubbles, sand, dirt and rust to save money, energy and component wear. PALL rings are used in the processing industry to mix gases with, or separate gases from, liquids. By applying PALL ring technology to hydronic air and dirt separation,  the 4900 Series casino online will:

  • Remove microbubbles as small as 18 x 10 –6 meters from the system
  • Remove air that has dissolved in the system water
  • Remove air from places where an air vent can’t be installed
  • Remove and separate solid particles from flow.

Series 4900-A models clean the system of free air and microbubbles. Series 4900-AD models remove both air and dirt from the hydronic system. All models are built to Section VIII of the ASME code.

Taco offers genuine Revit files

Taco is proud to be the first Pump/Systems manufacturer to offer  genuine Revit family files rather than only Revit “compatible” files.  The differences between the two types of files are significant.  A true Revit family file, with the extension *.rfa, contains both a three dimensional model and specific properties about the product such as flow/head, horsepower, pressure rating, connection sizes, etc.  When added to a Revit mechanical system drawing, these properties are shared with other components in the system, much like casino online in the HS2 software.  A Revit “compatible” file, usually a *.sat extension, has only a dimensioned model with no properties. These “compatible” files are what many in the industry are touting as Revit drawings, however they are very limited in their cross-compatibility, and are essentially only a vector drawing.

Additional Taco products are continuously being added to the *.rfa file library and being made available on the TACO-HVAC and Autodesk Seek websites.  If you don”t see what you need for a current project situation, please give us a call.

Catalogs, submittal data sheets, full size performance curves, and replacement part sheets are available on TACO-HVAC.com
