    Grundfos, U.S. Boiler Company Collaborate to Provide Ultra-Efficient Boiler-Pump Package

    NEW YORK — At the 2014 Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) in New York City, Grundfos and U.S. Boiler Company will announce an agreement to pair Grundfos’ ultra-efficient ALPHATM circulators as options on most U.S. Boiler gas cast-iron heating products. The combined product leverages both companies’ individual competencies in the industry and provides a market-leading solution for highly efficient heating in residential and light commercial applications.

    “We know that the price of energy is a growing concern for many Americans. Grundfos’ collaboration with U.S. Boiler Company will allow us to deliver the total package for saving energy – a best-in-class boiler paired with an ultra-efficient pump,” said Barry Nauss, director of HVAC OEM Sales for Grundfos USA.

    Made in the United States, the package will feature the ALPHA, a Grundfos pump designed for circulating liquids in light commercial and residential heating systems. The ALPHA features patented AUTOADAPT TM technology, which automatically analyzes the needs of the system and then adjusts operation to changes in demand. By learning the patterns of consumption, the pump can save end users up to 85 percent in energy costs when compared to a conventional circulator, ensuring the lowest possible consumption without sacrificing comfort

    Together with U.S. Boiler’s top-quality product, the competitively priced boiler-pump package will achieve new levels of complete energy efficiency.

    Bravo

    It's about time ECM circs became standard equipment.

    Hope they don't sell too many of those into old rusty systems.

    Now Put

    0-10vdc in both the Alpine and the Alpha and we'd be good to go. Its a nice start to see a boiler mfg step up and offer the upgrade.
