Armstrong Fluid Technology, an intelligent fluid flow manufacturer that employs over 1,000 people all over the world, has announced the introduction of the Generation 3 Design Envelope (DE) pumps. The pumps feature 33 advanced models that offer energy savings and come in sizes from 1 to 75HP.

The new Generation 3 Design Envelop pumps are expanding on the already popular technology that has saved millions of dollars for building owners all over the world. The new generation of pumps are designed to increase energy savings even more while providing more sustainable solutions at the same time.

“The Design Envelope technology integrates the latest selection, control, and hydronic tools into heat-transfer solutions that naturally accommodate changes in building design and demand to ensure that system performance is at an optimum at any given time,” according to Lex van der Weerd, CEO of Armstrong Fluid Technology. ”It is a more intelligent method of ensuring better HVAC equipment efficiency and achieving the lowest lifecycle cost.”

The Generation 3 DE pumps offer a variety of features that include:

  • TEFC Motors as standard to 25HP
  • 230/460/575V options
  • Fixed configuration codes for easy product identification and order entry
  • “Flat Map” selection
  • 2 to 10 day express shipment
  • Exceeds ASHRAE 90.1 energy standard for buildings

All pumps in the Design Envelope line are built around four core areas that include heat transfer, fluid flow, variable speed, and demand based control. These four areas are able to optimize lifetime building performance by modeling equipment and system behavior. The technology is also able to monitor authentic system conditions and dynamically adjust equipment operations to match the demands of the system. Specific Armstrong product combinations allow these functions and they include pumping systems, booster systems, an Intelligent Fluid Management System (iFMS), an Integrated Plant Controller (IPC), a Chilled Water Integrated Plant Package (IPP), and compass circulators.
