Need to replace an HVAC pump? Pentair’s new models combine efficiency, reliability and performance — with an online tool to make selection easier

by Brianna Crandall — September 30, 2019 — Global water treatment company Pentair just announced the release of its new streamlined product portfolio of energy-efficient pumps for commercial building applications. The new high-performance pumps are not only engineered to exceed the US Department of Energy (DOE) pump efficiency standards that go into effect in 2020 but have also been redesigned to deliver greater durability and usability for the end operator.

High-performance pumps

Bob Miller, senior vice president, Pentair Flow Technologies, stated:

At Pentair, we understand the issues our commercial building customers face on a daily basis, and the importance of pump performance for a reliable HVAC system. As a leader in delivering smart, sustainable water solutions, we viewed the recent US Department of Energy regulations as an opportunity to go beyond just compliance to deliver a new line of pumps with innovative hydraulics and an upgraded design to simplify installation and maintenance.

The newly upgraded end suction and vertical in-line pumps will be released under the Pentair Aurora and Pentair Fairbanks Nijhuis brands. Designed with an emphasis on durability, the pumps feature higher working pressure thresholds and versatility to perform through a large range of conditions.

Shared hydraulics were incorporated to reduce inventory complexities that can impact maintenance and replacement timelines. In addition, these new pumps are available with upgraded stainless steel impellers and ductile iron castings as standard offering.

Online tool simplifies pump selection process

In conjunction with the release of the new pumps, Pentair is also launching enhancements to its online pump selector tool for commercial building engineers and distributor partners. Users will now be able to access curve preferences and review configurations and pricing more easily on not only their desktop, but also on mobile devices.

A new projects portal will also allow users to create projects and share directly with customers, who can then download the documents and quickly convert projects to quotes.

Miller continued:

The Pentair Encompass Pump Selection Tool now offers greater functionality for users to compare and select the right Pentair pumping solution.
