Taco: Commercial Wet-Rotor Pumps
March 26, 2012
With a working pressure of 175 psi, the Viridian line of wet-rotor pumps with an ECM motor offers an 80 percent decrease in energy consumption compared to a standard commercial pump of the same size, claimed the company. The units feature fully automated variable-speed operation, simple web-style controls, and capacities up to 375 gpm. An Ethernet connection on the pump allows for remote control, monitoring, and adjustment without requiring the involvement of advanced IT or commissioning personnel. The pumps can be instantly accessed via a laptop or standard Internet browser. The Viridian is suitable for fluid temperatures from 14° to 230°F, the manufacturer said. The VR15 and VR20 can accept 110-240 V, while the larger VR25 and VR30 operate on 230-240 V.
