FNC and FNE series soon available with brass impellers



2023-02 End suction pumps impellers upgrade_banner

FNC and FNE series soon available with brass impellers

In terms of continuous improvement, the design of some End suction centrifugal pumps will be enhanced shortly.
The material of the impeller will be changed from cast iron to brass.

This concerns the following pump types: FNC

  • FNC 32 125
  • FNE 32 125


  • Improvement of the efficiency by reducing the weight at the shaft end
  • Strength and reliability of our product even in slightly sandy water
  • Optimization of spare parts stock FNE

As the two products are completely interchangeable, it will be a running change, probably starting from March 2023.
Initially, pumps in stock will be shipped with the current cast iron impeller design.


Kind regards,

Maurizio De Angelis
Product Manager

Save energy with permanent magnet technology


2023 02 HES EN

Franklin Electric High Efficiency Pumping Systems (HES)

The increase of energy costs is becoming more challenging than ever before when carefully sizing a water pumping application. With the Franklin Electric High Efficiency System you can reduce energy costs by up to 21% compared to asynchronous pumping systems.

The Franklin Electric permanent magnet synchronous motor provides superior efficiency, excellent energy savings and strong reliability making it the best choice for your upcoming pumping application. Instead of a traditional shortcircuit induction type rotor, the high efficiency motor contains a permanent magnet rotor that follows Franklin Electric’s well proven design principles.

Learn more about the advantages of the High Efficiency Systems and watch our explainer video:

 HES Video

Energy savings with permanent magnet technology - YouTube

The Permanent Magnet Motor design eliminates electrical rotor losses resulting in lower motor amps, improved partial load behavior and reduced temperature heat rise.

Compared to standard asynchronous motors, energy savings of up to 21 % have been achieved in numerous systems installed worldwide.

  • No electrical rotor losses with permanent magnet motors
  • Up to 15 points (21 %) improved motor efficiency*
  • Reduced motor current / cable cross-section
  • Synchronous speed (no slip)
  • Excellent partial load behaviour (Reduced stock levels)
  • Less temperature heat rise

EV-R type: vertical multistage pumps top/bottom ports


2022-07 EV-R Type EN_header

 EV-R type: vertical multistage pumps top/bottom ports

Franklin Electric is pleased to announce the introduction of the vertical multistage pump with overlapping ports.
This special version is based on a discharge port above the suction port with a new design of the outer casing and bottom casing.

The new EV-R type allows a 50 % reduction in footprint due to a different pipe positioning in parallel instead of in-line configuration.

EV Top bottom flanges



  • Discharge port above the suction port
  • Full Stainless steel AISI304 construction
  • Range from EV 6 up to EV 20
  • Pressure rating PN16

cooling sleeve kits for submersible motor pumps


2022 04 Social Media Cooling Sleeve Kits EN

Cooling sleeve kits for Franklin Electric submersible motor pumps

Franklin Electric is expanding its portfolio of accessories and now offers cooling sleeves for all Franklin Electric motors.

The heat loss generated by the submersible motor must be dissipated to the pumped medium by means of convection.

If the minimum cooling speed along the submersible motor cannot be guaranteed, it is mandatory to install a cooling sleeve to generate sufficient cooling. Inadequate cooling can have various causes, such as a well diameter that is too large, the application in “open” water, insufficient flow rate or water inflow from above (top feeding).

To provide cooling, the pump-motor unit is supplemented by a cooling sleeve. This separate „sheet metal jacket” is sealed above the pump inlet. The pumped medium is thus sucked in from below and directed past the motor to dissipate the generated motor heat loss (convection).

Cooling Sleeve 4 Inch

Appropriate brackets and inlet strainers are available for horizontal installation.

Kit components:

1              Cooling sleeve tube (Stainless steel)
2              Pump sealing ring (EPDM) with drinking water approval
3              Motor spacer
4              Pipe clamps
5              Filter strainer (accessories)
6              Console (accessory for horizontal mounting)

Design change 6CT Motor Packaging


Optimizing of the packaging for the 6" encapsulated motors

To optimize the handling and shipment of the 6" encapsulated motors, we have optimized the packaging concept of the motors.

The motor packaging has been complemented with a single wooden pallet. This will change the height of the package by 136 mm. The width and length of the packaging are the same as before.

This improvement will facilitate the transport, handling and storage logistics of the motors, particularly in the case of heavy motor weights. 


Packaging design 

Motorpack 6CT

This is a running change since Q3/2021.
