Armstrong Fluid Technology announces that it has completed the acquisition of the Circulator Pump Business Unit of HALM Motors + Systems GmbH in Germany, a provider of high efficiency circulator pumps for heating, solar, geothermal and domestic hot water applications. The HALM circulator pump offerings, global customer base and European presence extend Armstrong’s offerings and global reach, and demonstrate our commitment to energy efficiency and the European circulator market.
Armstrong has announced that its permanently lubricated, maintenance-free (MF) S&H circulators are now available with ECM motors and new EPDM seals.
These new enhancements make Armstrong S&H circulators as much as 20% more efficient. The S&H circulators also offer a significantly expanded temperature range.
Because the S&H MF circulators eliminate the need for oiling, they reduce maintenance requirements, saving building owners time and money.

Hydraulic Institute members reach consensus recommendation for an energy conservation standard level for circulator pumps as part of ASRAC working group.
Members of the Hydraulic Institute, Armstrong Fluid Technology, Grundfos, Taco Inc., WILO USA and Xlyem Applied Water Systems participated on a 15-member Appliance Federal Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ASRAC) working group on circulator pumps. On November 30, 2016, the working group reached consensus on a term sheet recommending to the ASRAC and the Secretary of Energy, terms for the development of a test procedure and energy conservation standard levels for circulator pumps. The consensus term sheet will go to the ASRAC for approval and be posted to the public docket. Stay up-to-date on background and updates on the circulator pump rulemaking process, including the approved term sheet when available.

Armstrong Fluid Technology has introduced new versions of the popular Astro 2 Hot Water Recirculation (HWR) pumps. A hot water recirculation system can save a typical family over 12,000 gallons of water per year by eliminating the waste of water that occurs when occupants open a hot water faucet and have to wait for hot water to reach the fixture.
Astro 2 HWR circulators are suitable for use in a 3-pipe installation with a dedicated return. The Astro Express 2 System includes the innovative Astro Express LF Valve and is designed for use in a standard residential 2-pipe installation.

Variable-speed technology and controls improve pump efficiency, ease of installation
In hydronic heating and cooling systems, circulator pumps move water or refrigerant throughout a closed-loop system in order to transfer energy from the source to the point of need. While older circulator pumps utilized single-speed motors and were largely inefficient, advances in motor technology, controls, and pump design have transformed the market and ushered in a new era of highly efficient products that feature variable-speed motors, easy installation and setup, remote connectivity, and more.
Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced two new enhancements to its Astro wet-rotor circulators that include a larger wiring box for easier access and faster wiring on the 220, 225, 230 and 250 Series circulators.
This larger 3” x 4.25” box includes a threaded connection to accept commercially available ½” NPT electrical connectors directly. The identical wiring box is also used on larger capacity Astro models.
