Aspen Pumps’ On-Demand Condensate Pump Shortlisted in ACR News Awards

March 10, 2017

Aspen Pumps, the UK’s market leader in condensate removal pumps, is pleased to announce that it has been shortlisted in the prestigious ACR News Awards. The Micro-v i4, the first ever on-demand condensate pump, has been nominated in the ‘Air Conditioning Ancillary Product of the Year’ category.

Winners of the ACR News Awards 2017 will be announced at a glittering ceremony at the 5* Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London on 23rd March 2017. Celebrating innovation in the air conditioning and refrigeration sector, the awards recognise companies that demonstrate excellence in the way they operate or in what they produce. The ACR News Awards were the first magazine awards in the industry and have been running for over 20 years, with an expert panel judging many high quality entries.

“We are delighted to make the shortlist in this key category at such prestigious awards. The Micro-v i4 is the first of its kind and provides many benefits” explains Joe Rose, Head of Group Marketing at Aspen Pumps. “It is the next generation of condensate pump, only operating when its needed meaning both cost and energy savings, as well as quiet running and a longer life.”

Ideal for projects where energy efficiency is a must, or where high energy loads from existing plant are an issue, on-demand operation makes common sense, saving energy for the end-user and reducing carbon emissions. Designed with intelligent, sophisticated controls and clever sensors that collect data, the Micro-v i4 adjusts switching levels and motor speed depending on the flow rate, thus ensuring it is only working and removing condensate when it is needed. Featuring a worry and maintenance free plug-and-play installation, the Micro-v i4 can be installed in multiple orientations and operates on-demand so is never continually running, has a longer life and comes with a 2 year warranty. The Micro-v i4 mini pump does not use a breather tube, so it saves even more space when trying to install into the tightest of locations.

Suitable for high wall split systems, ducted units and floor standing and chassis AC units, the mini pump is ideal for installing directly inside the Air Conditioning unit. The Micro-v i4 does not use a breather tube and only one connector is needed when installing it in high wall units, further adding to its installation versatility.

With sound levels a key comfort and health and wellbeing issue for end-users, the Micro-v i4 is almost silent at only 19dBA, which is below the sound of leaves rustling! This makes the pump ideal for high-spec applications where silence is key, such as hotel rooms or art galleries. The pump’s clever design features a soft start, so occupiers will be unaware of the pump gently starting and stopping, offering truly quiet running.

Boasting a raft of smart controls, the Micro-v i4 is also the first pump available that features the convenience of a floatless sensor that is immune to contaminant build up. Plus to ensure the pump is installed correctly, clever integral controls give a visual indication confirming correct installation.

Aspen Pumps’ extensive range boasts the largest variety of condensate removal pumps for the air conditioning, heating and refrigeration industry, with something suitable for every application. The pumps boast reliability, ease of installation, are the quietest on the market and all pumps have a free anti-siphoning device. Aspen Pumps continued success and achievements has been built by the hands-on experience of installation engineers, making Aspen Pumps the market leader in condensate removal.
