MORTON GROVE, Ill. – Xylem’s Bell & Gossett brand’s newly produced pumps in its e-Series line now display pump efficiency data required by the Department of Energy, making it the first manufacturer to attain compliance with the DOE’s Pump Energy Conservation Standards that take effect in 2020.
All of B&G’s e-Series pumps that fall within the DOE scope are being outfitted with the Hydraulic Institute Energy Rating label. The ER metric is based on the pump efficiency index in the DOE standards, which requires that pumps perform to published performance data and be tested to DOE test standards.
Bell & Gossett’s e-Series pump family is manufactured at the Xylem facility in Morton Grove, Illinois; the facility’s test labs were certified by the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program in 2016. The Xylem facility in Seneca Falls, New York, is also an approved test lab.
The HI Energy Rating label provides estimated annual power savings for a specific pump along with the DOE-required PEI information. Products with the ER label are listed in a database on the HI Energy Rating Portal, http://er.pumps.org/ratings/search, searchable by manufacturer, model number and rating ID listed on the hydraulic energy rating label distributed with the pump.
