Taco Introduces Expanded SKV & SKS SelfSensing Pump Line

selfsensefeb12_CanvasTaco’s line of SKV & SKS SelfSensing Pumps has been expanded to include a number of higher horsepower models to accommodate the needs of a broader range of commercial buildings. The new higher horsepower pumps open up larger and more varied application types that can take advantage of the pumps’ powerful SelfSensing technology.

Coupled with Taco’s ProBalance capability, SKV & SKS pumps offer many advantages for new and retrofit jobs, chiefly in their ability to reduce commissioning costs by quickly balancing the system.

Close-coupled SKV SelfSensing Pumps are now available from 1.5 hp to 60 hp. The pumps are available with optional AEGIS shaft grounding rings, silicon carbide seals and the drive detached from the pump for shipment.

Split-coupled SKS SelfSensing Pumps are now available in models as large as 250 hp down to 1.5 hp. Optional AEGIS shaft grounding rings, silicon carbide seals and the drive detached from the pump for shipment are available in pumps from 1.5 hp to 250 hp.

Taco’s ProBalance technology is an ideal complement to the full range of Taco SKV & SKS SelfSensing Pumps. ProBalance pinpoints true system resistance without inducing false head, balancing internally and automatically. As a result, hydronics professionals, building owners and facility managers reap lower installed cost, no errors in setpoint, a simplified construction schedule and no risk of sensor failure. The pumps include automatic alerts (with optional shutdown) for no-flow, dry-run and end-of-curve operation, and are electronically protected for overload and locked rotor conditions.
