Case study: Crown Realty Partner: Pearson Corporate Center

Posted by Armstrong Fluid Technology on Dec 19, 2023 9:30:00 AM


Crown Realty Partners: Pearson Corporate Center is a 300,000 square foot complex in Toronto consisting of two eight-storey office towers joined together by a central atrium. In 2018 the building owners asked Armstrong to upgrade the original pumps to new Design Envelope pumps.  

Armstrong replaced 6 constant speed pumps with new Design Envelope variable-speed pumps. Based on modelling calculations, the new system was expected to produce energy savings of 64%. Actual energy savings are over 80%.

Armstrong maps each individual pump’s hydraulic, motor and inverter variations at the factory, to achieve exceptional accuracy throughout the flow range.

With this calibration, Armstrong Design Envelope pumps also serve as flow meters, providing reliable system flow data (+/- 5%). The testing ensures optimal performance efficiency at start-up, and Armstrong’s Pump Manager helps maintain and extend efficiency throughout the pump’s operating life.
