AHR 2019: Addressing Customer Challenges!

If you’re attending AHR Expo 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia, January 14-16, be sure to stop by Booth C7153. Experts will be on hand to talk through your challenges and find solutions that directly affect your bottom line. In addition, a variety of Franklin Electric and Little Giant® branded HVAC pumping innovations will be on display, including:AHR 2019

  • The Franklin Electric Inline 1100 SpecPAKTM Pressure Boosting System connects easily to nearly any commercial, industrial, or multi-residential plumbing configuration to provide an easy-to-size water pressure boosting solution. Contractors simply determine how much water is required to be boosted to the desired constant pressure output, and the system comes properly packaged.
  • Franklin Electric’s Inline Controls include five pump starting and control devices that pair with a variety of submersible or surface pumps up to 20 amps (or approximately 3 hp) to provide or boost the system’s overall water pressure – and in many cases, without the need of an additional bladder tank. Depending on application requirements and selected model, the product family offers various forms of system protection, including dry run, dead head pumping, over amperage, locked system, and over pressurization. They also offer two unique features that ensure the system remains functional and hassle free, including: a daily motor rotation start designed to energize the motor at least once every 24 hours to prevent system locking, and a unique automatic restart feature eliminating the need to manually restart the pump in the case of an unexpected trip or fault.
  • Also on display will be the proven Little Giant VCMX-20 Series of Condensate Pumps554530 LG VCMX 20ULS Angled Left 1 that features a slim footprint for installation flexibility in tight areas, and a unique mounting bracket for easy mounting and removal. A 1/4-turn check valve allows for servicing without the removal of tubing to eliminate water spills, an external overflow switch automatically detects high level water, and an external test lever allows for quick testing of the pump or tank drain ability when needed. During a replacement of the pump with a new VCMX-20 Series, zero tools are needed for installation.
