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

Advantages:

  • 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

10/02/2023

2023 02 HES EN

SAVE ENERGY WITH PERMANENT MAGNET TECHNOLOGY
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

Read the success stories about our HES installations.

HES Landing Page

EASY INSTALLATION & SUPPORT

  • Operation with grid or solar supply
  • Easy and fast commissioning due to initial configuration wizard
  • Remote control and real-time monitoring via Mobile App (4"/6")
  • Remote assistance / Trouble shooting via Mobile App (4"/6")

To help you select the right system for your grid and solar applications, use the HES selection and sizing tool.
