Energy Efficiency

                    Optimised pumping for swimming pool




                    Value proposition

                    Main drivers

                    • The private home-owner wants to save energy while optimising the water flow in his filtration system, keeping water moving for chemical dispensers and chlorinator efficiency.


                    Value proposition

                    • At 80% of the flow, power consumption drops by 50% using a variable speed drive!
                    • Up to 30% energy savings, optimising water flows for any application, filtration, cleaning, spa and heating...


                    Differentiation factors

                    • Minimise the pump energy costs by operating at the lowest possible flow rate.
                    • Place a variable speed drive Altivar 11 between the circuit breaker and the motor to achieve flow variation by electronically controlling the speed of the motor.
