In 2017, Bell & Gossett became the nation’s first pump brand to achieve and exceed efficiency targets for clean-water pumps set forth by the U.S. Department of Energy, more than three years in advance of the 2020 compliance date.

The Energy Conservation Standard for Pumps and Test Procedures for Pumps signify the first-ever regulations for commercial and industrial pumps. By Jan. 27, 2020, all new pumps distributed in commerce in the U.S. must comply. The goal of the new efficiency rules is to reduce the overall demand for energy in the United States.

The pumps in Bell & Gossett’s e-Series line for HVAC and plumbing applications are designed with cutting-edge computational fluid dynamics technology, which produces dramatic improvements in efficiency. The highly efficient pumps not only use less energy, they contribute to increased system performance and lower life cycle costs.

Key features

ECM technology — Many pumps in the e-Series line include ECM (electronically commutated motor) design, which results in significant energy savings with improved performance. Through microprocessor technology, the motor is provided the precise frequency and voltage for optimum performance. A permanent magnet motor eliminates the requirement for input power to magnetize the rotor, thus maximizing efficiency.

Overall maximization of performance — Compared to similar pumps, e-Series products have lower life-cycle costs, reduce energy consumption, improve overall system performance and maximize hydraulic coverage.

Compatible with variety of drives and controls — e-Series products are available with integrated drives for both sensored and sensorless applications. The option helps make an energy-efficient system even more efficient and reduces energy costs even further.
