New for 2019, Taco Comfort Solutions’® 0018e high-efficiency, Bluetooth®-enabled circulator brings a new level of control to residential and light commercial hydronic systems.

The ECM-powered 0018e is a solution for contractors who want the durability, efficiency and simplicity of other Taco ECM circulators, while looking for more system feedback and control than has been previously available.

The circulator features Bluetooth communication to a mobile app.  This provides real time control, diagnostics and reporting, such as installation history, power consumption, performance and runtime.   The installer can select between multiple constant speed, proportional pressure, and constant pressure modes as well as activeADAPT™, Taco’s self-adjusting proportional pressure mode.

Among the innovative features that make the 0018e reliable and easy to install, Taco’s BIO Barrier® protects the pump from system contaminants, especially black iron oxide that otherwise tends to collect around strong ECM magnets.  Also, SureStart®, which automatically unblocks a locked rotor and purges air from the circulator.  The 0018e features 18 feet maximum head with a maximum flow of 16 GPM. It’s also double insulated, which eliminates the need for a ground wire.

Due to its energy-saving ECM design, the circulator qualifies for most state, regional, and utility efficiency incentive programs.  An integral flow check is included, and both two-bolt or two-way flange models are available.

Contractors who designs their systems with precision can now get a circulator with the performance and control to match. The 0018e will be available in the third quarter of 2019.

Xylem Bell & Gossett introduced its new line of double suction centrifugal pumps designed specifically for HVAC systems. The Series e-HSC features advanced hydraulics for powerful performance and best-in-class efficiency, along with a compact design for easier installation and maintenance.

“With its robust hydraulic capabilities, the Series e-HSC is ideal for large capacity, high-head systems with high inlet pressure, a common challenge in commercial HVAC systems,” said Alan Jones, Global Product Manager, Bell & Gossett Centrifugal Pumps. “The versatile Series e-HSC is available in up to 90 model options with extensive flow/head coverage to suit of wide variety of HVAC system requirements.”

The Series e-HSC simplifies B&G’s double suction pump portfolio and provides greater system optimization to improve efficiency and increase energy savings. The product line also boasts a smaller footprint, greater reliability and lower life cycle cost compared to similar pumps. In addition to saving space in the mechanical room, the e-HSC’s inline configuration enables simplified installation and maintenance in new or retrofit systems.

The Series e-HSC is suitable for commercial buildings such as hospitals, shopping centers and malls, hotels and resorts, sports arenas, office buildings and airports for systems that require chillers, cooling towers, distributive pumping, district heating and cooling, primary and secondary pumping or process application. Choosing the option that is the best fit for the installation is easy through B&G’s online selection tool, ESP-Systemwize™.

A new volute design — either single or dual volute based on the hydraulic constraints — extends bearing life and reduces shaft deflection within the Preferred Operating Range (POR) of the pump, from 70 to 120 percent of the Best Efficiency Point (BEP). When running within the POR of the e-HSC, bearing life expectancy will exceed 100,000 hours (L10). The e-HSC is designed with large “Efficiency Islands,” within the POR as well, which help to increase efficiency at partial loads using variable frequency drives.

The e-HSC is equipped with mechanical seals customized for HVAC applications that support a variety of installations regardless of incoming pressure. Due to the standard spacer coupling, routine maintenance of mechanical seals and bearings can be performed on both sides of the pump without opening the upper casing, reducing downtime and cost. Casings are available in cast iron or ductile iron, along with standard option materials for the impeller, shaft and wear rings.

Lochinvar and EC POWER, the top European producer of residential and commercial combined heat and power products, announced the launch of XRGI25, one of the most cutting-edge cogeneration products to ever be released in North America. Lochinvar originally announced the strategic partnership with EC POWER in April 2018.

Using an internal combustion natural gas engine, Micro CHP (< 50 kW/hr), is designed to be an efficient and easy-to-install system intended for light commercial use. Using natural gas as a fuel, a commercial facility with a cogeneration system like the XRGI25 can produce both energy-efficient heat for domestic hot water and electricity to reduce energy consumption from external power sources.

Lochinvar partners with Danish company EC Power to offer cogeneration system, which pulls waste heat into water storage tank. Seen at the AHR Expo.

“Leading the charge for Micro CHP and cogeneration in North America matches our company vision and almost 80-year legacy perfectly,” said Mike Lahti, vice president of sales, marketing and business development at Lochinvar. “Adopters of Micro CHP/cogeneration can expect the same high-efficiency water heating they have always experienced with Lochinvar while driving additional electricity production. Once this system is installed, customers will see a significant return on investment.”

Exceeding European Union highest efficiency ratings, the XRGI25 avoids the transmission and distribution (T&D) losses that occur when electricity travels over power lines. The current T&D loss in the United States is now about 4.5 percent, but can easily increase to 10 percent when the grid is burdened and air temperatures are high. This product can achieve efficiencies approaching 90 percent.

Micro CHP is designed for areas where the “spark spread,” difference between the cost of electricity and natural gas to produce that electricity, is wide and there is a significant hot water load for an extended period of time.

Leveraging relatively low-cost natural gas to generate supplemental electricity on-site immediately reduces reliance on more expensive electricity from the grid. This offers users immediate short-term savings, as well as long-term payback and continued efficiency.

“No other CHP manufacturer offers a complete package that brings all major components to the table, and that’s why the XRGI25 is such a great fit for our constantly growing product portfolio,” Lahti said. “Our highly advanced line of water heaters and storage tanks pair perfectly with the XRGI25, making installation a snap. Between the advanced technology developed by EC POWER and the high performing Lochinvar product lines, customers can expect high-efficiency and reliability.”

Designed for many light commercial applications and facilities like multi-family, hotels, hospitals, colleges, restaurants and swimming pools, the XRGI25 aims to meet the growing need for enhanced efficiency and reduced energy waste in North America.
