MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Based on its analysis of the intelligent fluid-flow equipment market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Armstrong Fluid Technologies with the 2016 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership. Frost & Sullivan said Armstrong Fluid Technologies’ flagship Design Envelope product portfolio offers smart, green, and cost-effective solutions that address every fluid flow need of plant and building owners. Its array of pumping products and solutions are designed to be extremely user-friendly and easy to install. These product benefits, along with its value-added services, are popularizing the product line across major markets in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East.

The manufacturing process involves the integration of its pumps with variable speed controls followed by an optimization process, wherein the various components of the pump — including the motor, the control, and the hydraulics — are precisely matched. Armstrong performs detailed testing of all pumps, ensuring they perform at their maximum potential.

“Armstrong’s Design Envelope intelligent variable speed (IVS) pumps offer superior functionality, employing optimized speed control to deliver ‘demand-based pumping’ under varying conditions,” said Shilpa Mathur Ramachandran, Frost & Sullivan research analyst. “In this process, the equipment utilizes only the energy required to meet the system demand at any given time. This technique aids cost-cutting through reduced operating expenses of pumps, and achieves nearly 70 percent energy savings at 50 percent peak load while enhancing the performance of HVAC systems.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognizes the extent to which the product line meets customer demands, the overall impact it has in terms of customer value, and its increased market share.
