Allweiler pumps will meet the Ecodesign Directive ErP 2005/32/EC energy efficiency directive beginning January 1, 2015 – two years ahead of required compliance.
The new ordinance requires all pumps for “clean” water delivered after January 1, 2015 must have a minimum efficiency index (MEI) of 0.4. From January 1, 2017 the standard requires electric motors with rated power of 0.75 to 375 kW to exhibit premium efficiency (efficiency level IE3), and IE2 motors must be equipped with speed control. The Allweiler brand pumps achieve high efficiency due in part to well-designed pump hydraulics. Additionally, only IE3 motors will be used, including a frequency converter, if requested.
Additionally, ErP 2005/32/EC-compliant Allweiler pumps will be offered at the same prices as current models.
