Xylem expands Lowara ecocirc BASIC circulator range for residential applications

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 — Xylem has extended its highly efficient Lowara ecocirc range of wet rotor heating circulator pumps with the introduction of the new ecocirc BASIC N for residential applications involving potable and domestic hot water (DHW).

Chiara Musola, Global Product Manager, Circulators at Xylem commented: “Our customers are seeking a one-stop solution that can meet virtually any domestic water circulation requirement across a broad range of residential applications. With this latest addition of the N models, we deliver on those needs, providing consistent quality and the energy efficiency benefits expected of our ecocirc BASIC series.”

The pump housing of the ecocirc BASIC N is made of AISI 304 stainless steel, combining high hydraulic performance and safe operation for transport of potable water. The Lowara ecocirc BASIC N range has obtained third party approvals in France (ACS – Attestation de Conformité Sanitaire), the UK (WRAS – Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) and Germany (KTW – Kunststoffe und Trinkwasser), which makes it compliant with the main European requirements in terms of potable water operation. The ecocirc BASIC N range also complies with the German UBA (Umweltbundesamt – Federal Environment Agency) list of materials suitable for use with drinking water.

The new ecocirc BASIC N strongly improves system performance due to permanent magnet EC motor technology featured in all ecocirc BASIC and PREMIUM models, granting an energy efficiency index (EEI) that exceeds the energy-related products (ErP) directive. This electronically-commutated spherical motor has only one moving component – the impeller/rotor unit – enabling the pump to perform to its maximum capability after any period of inactivity.

The ecocirc BASIC N features all the benefits of the ecocirc BASIC range, including:

  • Anti-Block technology that efficiently prevents potential blockages caused by limescale build-up.
  • Dry-run protection, which prevents the motor from being overheated if the pump runs when no water is present.
  • Inrush current limitation to prevent motor damage from high inrush currents.
  • Constant speed and proportional pressure operation modes, making it suitable for a wide range of sanitary applications.
  • A universal plug to easily connect the pump to the electric supply.
  • A single control knob for all settings, including air purging mode, for greater ease of use.
