Franklin Electric to unveil new Little Giant Condensate Pump and FPS Dual Seal Grinder at ASPE 2016
Franklin Electric Co., Inc. will display a wide variety of new pumping solutions at the 2016 ASPE Convention and Expo in booth 237 at the Phoenix Convention Center Oct. 31-Nov. 1 in Phoenix.
A few of the new products featured in the booth include:
- Franklin Electric’s new Little Giant VCC-20-P Series is designed for automatic collection and removal of condensate from air conditioning, refrigeration, and dehumidification equipment installed in air handling and plenum applications. The VCC-20-P Series is constructed with plastics that have been tested by Underwriters Laboratories to meet the requirements of UL Standard 2043 “Fire Test for Heat and Visible Smoke Release of Discrete Products and Their Accessories Installed in Air Handling Spaces.” UL Standard 2043 is a fire test method for determining the fire performance response of discrete products intended to be installed in air handling spaces, such as above suspended ceilings or below floors. The VCC-20-P Series delivers pumping performance of 80 GPH at 1 foot and 20 feet shut off (on 115 V) and has a low profile height of 1 ¾ inches.
- The new FPS IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series delivers increased pump security and performance ideal for commercial and high-end residential applications. The IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series utilizes two mechanical seals, coupled with sensor probe and seal leak detection circuitry in the panel, to provide added pump protection that can extend the overall pump life. If water enters the oil chamber, a light in the control panel will illuminate and indicate that the first seal requires replacement. The second seal continues to protect the pump so that it can maintain full functionality until the first seal can be changed. Upon the replacement of the first seal, the pump can be put back in service at peak performance levels. It efficiently pumps sewage slurries up to 130 feet and features a patented cutting system that grinds at 414,000 cuts per minute.
- The Little Giant 6EC Series and 10EC Series pumps provide lower current draw, higher energy efficiency, and improved performance in sump, dewatering, water transfer and light effluent applications. These units feature cast iron covers and a polypropylene base that includes the stainless plate. Additional models are now available with a durable cast iron base providing increased intake area, reducing intake velocities and clogging potential. The 1/3 hp 6EC Series consumes only 5.0 amps while producing 53 gpm at 5 feet of head and reaching a maximum shut off of 28 feet. The 1/2 hp 10EC Series touts a full-load rating of only 6.5 amps and produces 67 gpm at 5 feet of head with a maximum shut off of 36 feet.
- The Franklin Electric Inline 400 Pressure Boosting System is a compact and economical solution to most water pressure improvement needs. The Inline 400 couples a proven Franklin Electric pump and motor with simple flow-based controls to provide a typical water pressure boost of up to 40 PSI, depending on the application’s need. The unit’s symmetrical design allows for easy installation mounting either vertically or horizontally to fit within most existing plumbing configurations – including those where space is limited. This powerful, yet whisper quiet system is ideal for city water pressure boosting, pressurizing water from a cistern tank, re-pressurizing after filtration and irrigation system boosting applications.
