Wilo Salmson Deliver World First With ‘Green’ Stratos Pump Range

Utilising revolutionary technology to deliver the world's first glandless circulator featuring an Electronic Commutated Motor (ECM) with permanent magnet rotor, Wilo Salmson Pumps Ltd has launched the Wilo-Stratos range of environmentally-friendly, high-efficiency pumps for heating and cooling; designed to reduce energy demand by as much as 80%!

This new generation of energy-saving pumps is easy to install,

maintenance-free and practically silent, while providing enormous savings on

both primary energy costs and operating costs that cannot be realised with

‘traditional’ circulator pump technology.

The outstanding levels of efficiency demonstrated by the Wilo-Stratos range

are attained by the pump adjusting its own performance in direct response to

system demand, enabling the pump to operate within an optimised performance

range. Energy consumption in the pump is further reduced with the use of a

permanent magnet motor that does not require energy to generate a magnetic

field in the rotor.

In addition to improved motor efficiency in the full and part load range,

improved hydraulic efficiency, reduced size and weight, the design of the

pump also facilitates easy specification – installers must simply ensure

that maximum system demand falls within the maximum capacity of the pump.

The new Wilo-Stratos range is ideal for climate protection requirements in a

wide range of applications throughout the commercial building services

sector including industrial, domestic, water waste and sewage.

Mr Gary Wheatley, Technical Manager at Wilo Salmson said: “The launch of the

Wilo-Stratos range follows years of research and development into how motor

efficiency, hydraulics and energy saving can be improved without incurring

the high manufacturing costs that many pump manufacturers pass on to their


“With the Wilo-Stratos range we have achieved all of our objectives to

deliver a pump that ensures these benefits are passed on to our customers in

a cost-effective way.”

The Wilo-Stratos is the twelfth Wilo product to be added to the official

Enhanced Captial Allowance product list and is demonstration of its

continuing commitment to reduce CO2 emissions.
