Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems Sparus™ Pump with Constant Flow Technology™, 3 hp, 1-phase, 230V, 16 FLA, 1.32 SF, 3.95 SFHP
Under typical operating conditions, Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology offers the highest water flow rate of any high performance pump—with the lowest electricity consumption. Thanks to its integrated on-board Variable Frequency Drive, Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology automatically calculates and self-adjusts to provide the exact operational speed needed to deliver the exact flow rate you establish. As system conditions change, Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology self-adjusts to achieve a constant user-specified flow rate. The result of this breakthrough technology is that you achieve the absolute minimum energy usage required to deliver any given flow rate! This high level of efficiency can save you thousands of dollars per year in pump operating costs.
No more closing valves to decrease flow rate or making manual adjustments. Simply select the flow rate you require and Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology delivers. As system conditions change, the flow rate remains constant. Need a higher or lower flow rate? Simply adjust the desired flow rate by using the simple keypad. No matter what flow rate you select, you’ll rest assured that your desired flow rate remains constant.
Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology has an intelligent on-board controller that allows it to self-adjust to achieve the most-energy-efficient speed required to deliver a constant flow rate. The laws of physics mean that cubic energy savings can be reaped by decreasing the speed of an electric motor to the minimum speed required to do the required work.
The law of physics known as the Affinity Law states that there is a cubic relationship between the speed of an electric motor and its power consumption. By decreasing the speed of a motor by only 10%, you’ll reap up to 33% in electrical energy savings while still achieving the exact flow rate that your application requires. With conventional pumps, the motor is often operating at a speed that is needlessly high for the application. Users of conventional single-speed pumps often find that their only option to decrease their flow rate is to partially close a valve to “throttle” the flow rate. Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology takes that paradigm and turns it on its head! The intelligence built into every Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology means that you establish the desired flow rate and leave the decision-making to the pump.
Sparus with Constant Flow Technology will always operate at the slowest speed required to achieve the user-established flow rate; the savings it provides is yours to keep! Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology delivers proven reliability thanks to its saltwater-rated stainless steel internal fasteners and highly robust mechanical seal. Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology is a self-priming pump, and it’s also suitable for flooded-suction applications. It’s compatible with a wide assortment of aquaculture systems and includes an oversized strainer basket and volute. Sparus pump with Constant Flow Technology is equipped with 2” internally threaded NPT suction/ discharge ports for easy installation.
