Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand, launched the highly efficient Series e-80 vertical inline centrifugal pump, enhancing its portfolio of system solutions for the commercial building services market. The Series e-80 further expands the B&G e-range of pumps, all of which feature the industry’s largest Efficiency Islands. These extensive efficiency profiles provide the highest energy and hydraulic efficiencies across the widest range of operating conditions – reducing electricity consumption, improving overall system performance and lowering life cycle costs.
Series e-80 close-coupled inline pumps are also available in a split-coupled model (e-80SC). Customers have the option of adding factory-installed Integrated Technologic sensored (e-80IT) and sensorless (e-80ITSC) variable frequency drives to any e-80 pump to lower operating costs by better matching system demands and prolonging the life of the product.
Durable stainless steel impellers contribute to efficient pump performance and maximize product life cycle. The line’s e-80SC split-coupled model is the first and only pump with a patent-pending jackscrew design, requiring only one person to service it, compared to all similar models, which require two people.
The e-80 and e-80SC come in sizes from 1-1/2 inches to 14 inches with impellers ranging from 7-1/2 inches to 14 inches. The e-80 is offered with up to 60 horsepower (HP), the e-80 split coupled is offered with up to 125HP, and the e-80IT/ITSC and e-80SCIT/ITSC single-phase has up to 30HP. An armor braided, flexible flush line comes as standard for increased mechanical seal durability. All Technologic drives are configured with a NEMA 12 enclosure rating to ensure safe drive operation in the presence of falling dirt, circulating dust and dripping or light splashing of water. The drives also come with a temperature controlled cooling fan to maintain uninterrupted operation and an efficient advanced power system design.
