Taco ViridianCHICAGO — Taco’s Viridian pump line makes its first appearance at the 2012 AHR Expo in Chicago. The wet-rotor pump with an ECM motor offers an 80 percent decrease in energy consumption compared to a standard commercial pump of the same size, the company says.

With fully automated variable speed operation, simple web style controls, and capacities up to 375 gpm, the Viridian line meets a wide range of closed-loop heating and cooling applications.

An Ethernet connection on the pump allows for remote control, monitoring, and adjustment without requiring the involvement of advanced IT or commissioning personnel, notes the company. Any Viridian pump can be instantly accessed via a laptop or standard Internet browser.

The Viridian features a working pressure of 175 psi, and is suitable for fluid temperatures from 14° to 230°F. The VR15 and VR20 can accept 110-240 volts, while the larger VR25 and VR30 operate on 230-240 volts.
