Action Pumps Elvaro T/B

August 2022 Product of the Month

The ELVARO range encompasses two of the most-popular configurations of combined pump and tank solutions. The ELVARO B comprises of a single, twin, or triplex variable speed surface-mounted pump set mounted below (‘B’) a frame supported cold water storage tank including all interconnecting pipework. Tank sizes range from 500 – 3000 litres of nominal storage capacity and a single pump in operation can achieve between 0.3 l/s @ 4 bar with options to increase up to 1.4 l/s @ 6 bar.

The ELVARO T on the other hand, comprises of either one, two or three submersible pumps mounted within a one-piece storage tank ranging from 500 litre to 2250 litres of nominal capacity and low-level protection via float switches is supplied as standard. Lowara Hydrovar inverter(s), manifolds & expansion vessels are mounted on a reinforced lid to provide optimum performance output via electronic control and ease of on-site installation. All interconnecting pipework including valves and fittings are also included.

Pros:

Where to begin?

Both the ELVARO T and B come into their own when floor space is limited within a plant room, and therefore a tight and compact footprint becomes an essential factor in selecting a solution. The footprint of either option is greatly reduced versus traditional pump and tank configurations because of both unit’s modular designs, but the ELVARO B almost certainly has an advantage over its sister because the pumps themselves do not contribute to even an inch of the free space in the surrounding area outside of the tank.

The ELVARO B is not only exceptionally easy to maintain but can be delivered to the site in two components – the frame assembly and booster set & the storage tank itself. This allows for the set to be manoeuvred into a plant room with limited height in the most pain-free manner, and reassembly once positioned correctly is extremely straightforward.

A CAT 5 option is available for all tank sizes and configurations when backflow prevention is recommended and essential for regulatory compliance.

The ELVARO T can even be installed with a slave tank when additional capacity is required simply by fitting a sparge pipe to ensure equitable useable tank capacity.

All pumps are pre-set to your own pressure requirements before leaving us, but should commissioning or servicing be required, our engineers are thoroughly trained to ensure that any ELVARO is working at its optimum performance potential.

Cons:

NONE 

(Just kidding)

We have been in the industry long enough to know that the ELVARO is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution and does not suit the nature of every installation. Sometimes a traditional tank and pump system will suffice when space-saving is not a crucial element in the specification.

However, with continued development and testing well underway, we hope to evolve the ELVARO way beyond conventional expectations of a pressure boosting system, with pre & post-manufacture customization options becoming available to aid in quashing any objections, to even expanding the ELVARO range further to encompass more than just straightforward cold-water pressure boosting.

Watch. This. Space.

(No pun intended – seriously)

PRESFIX Packaged Pressurisation Sets

June 2022 Product of the Month

The main benefits include: large volumes of water are no longer required to be stored at the top of the building. Expansion vessels can now be used in place of the storage tanks and these can be placed anywhere in the building, usually in the basement where the weight is not a problem.

Sealed systems reduce corrosion to an absolute minimum by sealing the system content from atmosphere, and only adding fresh water to replace loses through leakage. Sealed systems also offer the possibility of operating at higher temperatures if required (Max 120°C) which permits lower circulation rates, smaller pumps and reduced pipe work dimension with obvious cost savings.

 

“In today’s demanding environment nearly all heating and chilled water circulating systems are designed to operate in sealed networks.”

Variable Speed Booster Pump

March 2021 Product of the Month

The multi-inverter system ensures instant control. With e-SM individual/dedicated controls and pressure transducers to eliminate any single point of failure. Multi e-SM communication ensures that if any pump inverter control or pressure transducer were to fail then the remaining pumps would continue to operate in normal sequence.

Pumps fitted on a common base with all components:

  • Control Panel
  • Pipes and fittings
  • Pressure Gauge,
  • Anti-Vibration mounts
  • Pressure transducer
  • 24 litre diaphragm tanks for each pump are connected on delivery side of the set
  • Suction & Discharge manifolds AISI 304 stainless steel
  • On-off valves fitted to each pump suction and discharge port
  • Non-return valves fitted to each pump discharge port

 

Control Panel – IP55 protection class, equipped with: Door interlocked isolator, Thermal magnetic protectors for each inverter. Low water protection, ready to connect to external low water device. Fault Free contact.

VARIABLE SPEED COLD WATER BOOSTER SET

Elvaro T Range

February 2021 Product of the Month

The Elvaro T is a combined tank and variable speed pump set solution designed to maximise the water storage available within a minimum available space. Variable speed operation of the pumps means system pipework lasts longer due to the removal of the water hammer common on fixed speed operated pumps. This also provides a reduction in energy consumption and is much quieter when in operation.

LOWARA MINI FIX TANK

May 2022 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

The Mini single pump Fix Tank booster set has been designed to be compact and provide a fluid category 5 air gap complying with the water supply (water fittings) regulations 1999 and comes as a complete package in an enclosed stainless steel cabinet suitable for wall or floor mounting.

The pump control is provided by our well proven Genyo unit which will start the pump on falling pressure and stop the pump when flow ceases.

The Genyo unit also provides low water level protection.

 

 

Lowara GMS10/PABLRM15/037M/18W/UK – fixed speed mini break tank booster c/w 18 litre tank & stainless steel housing suitable for wall mounting. 230/1/50.

ELVARO B RANGE

APRIL 2022 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

The Elvaro B is a combined tank and variable speed pump set designed to minimise the space used up by the components of a similar installation where the tank is located alongside the pump set.

Variable speed operation of the pumps ensures a longer life of the pipework system due to the removal of the water hammer common with fixed speed operated pumps.

Mounting the tank on a steel frame above the pumps not only provides a space saving solution but is also an ideal replacement for an existing installation where a larger tank capacity can be obtained in the available space.
