Armstrong National Grid Still 3

Armstrong recently completed a project in the United Kingdom, retrofitting a building belonging to National Grid.

The retrofit included new pump sets that reduced energy consumption by 32%, saving over 5,000 GBP annually.

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, while Armstrong’s Pump Manager helps maintain and extend efficiency throughout the pump’s operating life.
