Variable Speed Control eliminates complex programming at pump.

August 10, 2016

Available for Apex condensing boilers, Eco Propel Cognitive Pump Control integrates boiler firing rate with pump speeds to optimize efficiency while minimizing electrical consumption. A 0–10 V signal is communicated to pump to ensure desired flow and delta T is returned across all firing ranges. By reducing pump speeds as much as 85% under single-speed pumps, Eco Propel eliminates wasteful over-pumping. It also averages return temperature that is 20°F lower than other systems with on/off pumps. Read More
