Pumpmakers use innovation, design to lead Smart Pump industry

Sponsored by

MONTREAL, PQ, Canada, Sept. 17, 2010 -- Driven by the demand for increased performance, water circulation pumps have taken a quantum leap in energy efficiency in both commercial and residential applications. The advantages are simple: low noise level, efficient motor and maintenance-free design.

With energy remaining a valuable global commodity, one of the world's largest pump manufacturers has taken efficiency to a new level by designing a system that offers up to 80% energy savings. WILO, which was founded in Germany and came to the U.S. in 2004, invests more than $40 million per year in new and innovative products exclusively, developing systems ranging from residential heating to large municipal wastewater treatment plants, focusing primarily on Smart Pumps.

Smart Pumps use computer technology to perform data logging that allows the pump to "learn" the systems they're on and adjusts its variable speed to maximize total efficiency of the entire system.

"We are one of the few companies introducing new products on a regular basis for the HVAC industry," said Brian King, Midwest District Sales Manager for WILO USA. King attributes the innovation to their vast investment in R&D and engineering staff as well as to their extremely high standards.

With a manufacturing plant in Thomasville, Ga., and a national sales office in Chicago, the FMA Congress in August was the perfect opportunity for WILO to educate influencers about its systems.

"We have been talking to people who are on the front line of the conservation industry each and every day," said King. "Regardless of the type of company they represent, they all understand what saving energy means to their bottom line."

Although it is WILO'S first FMA conference, King said he would recommend participating at future events due to the quality of attendees.

"Everybody we're seeing here is serious about learning about new technology and innovative products. They are all very focused and have a reason to be here - to take back what they learned to their companies and make a difference."
