The Tango range of pump solutions from Armstrong Fluid Technology offers efficiency with built-in parallel sensorless pump control; motor efficiency exceeding IE4; embedded intelligence and connectivity; and innovative design for ease of maintenance. These capabilities deliver energy savings of more than 30%. Designed for all variable speed operation in the 1hp to 10hp range, the Tango solutions are fully-integrated parallel pumping modules offering significant reductions in size and weight, and greatly improved efficiency, with particular advantages for applications where full duty standby would traditionally be installed. Each Tango solution features two pump heads with builtin parallel sensorless pump control integrated as standard. This optimises hydraulic performance, providing 3% to 6% improvement in efficiency. The Tango range offers can replace a traditional full-duty standby pump configuration as the optional blanking plate enables single pump operation during servicing, with automatic optimisation of energy efficiency. The capacity of a single pump is high (2 x 5hp motors with one motor operating and one shut down, for example, delivers 82.5% of capacity rather than 50%). This means that highly cost-effective and efficient parallel pumping configurations can be specified and installed. Enquiry number 163 on the card or
