Wilo has launched the Wilo-Stratos GIGA here in the UK. It??s another highly efficient pump product ?? the first high efficiency glanded pump ?? and it??s targeted specifically at the building services and industry sectors and offers a wealth of energy and cost saving opportunities.
The Wilo-Stratos GIGA offers building designers, specifiers and architects the chance to easily optimize the energy costs and environmental balance of a building or industrial complex. With its hydraulic output and specification, the new Wilo-Stratos GIGA is ideal for commercial, industrial and residential buildings. These include universities and colleges, schools, office blocks, hotels, conference centres, factories, prisons, hospitals, primary care centres ?? in essence, any new building where energy consumption and emissions need to be reduced and any existing building where the current pumps are elderly, uncontrolled pumps, consuming far more electricity than they should in the current energy climate.
It??s the first pump from Wilo??s new high-efficiency series for heating, cold-water and cooling applications, and it??s targeted at projects where energy saving pumps will pay significant dividends over a typically fifteen year lifecycle.
The figures associated with the new Wilo-Stratos GIGA are quite staggering. Due to the combination of new hydraulics with a new highly efficient drive concept (HED ?? High Efficiency Drive) the Wilo-Stratos GIGA offers major energy saving benefits. Specifying the GIGA for your projects will result in a saving of emissions amounting to approximately 8,000 kg CO2 per year as well as saving up to £70,000 in electricity costs per pump installed over a 15 year lifecycle, compared to conventional uncontrolled pumps (based on the Blue Angel load profile). The new GIGA has a typical payback period of less than two years, which highlights the benefits and value of installing high efficiency Wilo pumps.
Thanks to the proven “red-button technology” and an easy to monitor display, the pump guarantees user-friendly operation. On the basis of optionally available IF-Modules that can be integrated, different interfaces for Bus communication can be utilized ?? including PLR, LON, Modbus, BACNet and CAN – making external devices redundant.
