Wilo-Stratos GIGA

Wilo-Stratos GIGA - helping specifiers meet tomorrow's environmental targets today....
-The first high efficiency glanded pump
-New GIGA pump features Highly Efficient Drive concept (HED - High Efficiency Drive) and offers motor efficiencies above the new IE4 limit value*
- An exciting new opportunity for the building services and industrial sectors and up to 70% lower energy consumption compared to conventional, uncontrolled pumps
Wilo-Stratos GIGA
Wilo has launched the Wilo-Stratos GIGA here in the UK. It's another highly efficient pump product - the first high efficiency glanded pump - and it's targeted specifically at the building services and industry sectors.

The Wilo-Stratos GIGA offers building designers, specifiers and architects the chance to easily optimize the energy costs and environmental balance of a building or industrial complex. With its hydraulic output and specification, the new Wilo-Stratos GIGA is ideal for commercial, industrial and residential buildings. These include universities and colleges, schools, office blocks, hotels, conference centres, factories, prisons, hospitals, primary care centres - in essence, any new building where energy consumption and emissions need to be reduced and any existing building where the current pumps are elderly, uncontrolled pumps, consuming far more electricity than they should in the current energy climate.

It's the first pump from Wilo's new high-efficiency series for heating, cold-water and cooling applications, and it's targeted at projects where energy saving pumps will pay significant dividends over a typically fifteen year lifecycle.

The figures associated with the new Wilo-Stratos GIGA are quite staggering.

Due to the combination of new hydraulics with a new highly efficient drive concept (HED - High Efficiency Drive) the Wilo-Stratos GIGA offers major energy saving benefits. Specifying the GIGA for your projects will result in a saving of emissions amounting to approximately 8,000 kg CO2 per year as well as saving up to £70,000 in electricity costs per pump installed over a 15 year lifecycle, compared to conventional uncontrolled pumps (based on the Blue Angel load profile). The new GIGA has a typical payback period of less than two years, which highlights the benefits and value of installing high efficiency Wilo pumps.

The new pump series that the GIGA leads is a completely new development. For the first time glanded pumps are driven by highly efficient energy-saving EC motors and the pumps' hydraulics are optimally adjusted to the motor technology. According to Wilo, GIGA pumps can claim particularly high total efficiency based on a motor efficiency of up to 94 per cent at a nominal motor power of 4.5 kW. The motor's energy efficiency is based on a new high-efficiency drive concept, the High Efficiency Drive (HED) from Wilo and even outclasses the limit of efficiency class IE4 (acc. to IEC TS 60034-31 Ed.1) outlined under the new and far reaching ErP Directive for energy related products. That's impressive by any measure.

Thanks to the proven 'red-button technology' and an easy to monitor display, the pump guarantees user-friendly operation. On the basis of optionally available IF-Modules that can be integrated, different interfaces for Bus communication can be utilized - including PLR, LON, Modbus, BACNet and CAN - making external devices redundant.

Wilo's MD in the UK is Gary Mannus: 'Wilo is taking huge strides in developing new products that respond directly to the requirements of the current environmental climate. But more than that, we're offering equipment and expertise that will help the UK to meet its energy saving and emissions reduction targets. The potential for savings using these new pumps is staggering and when you consider that 85% of the lifecycle costs of a pump are the energy costs, being able to save up to 70% of those just by using a Wilo-Stratos GIGA is a very appealing argument for looking very closely at what Wilo has to offer.'

Whitepaper tackles legionella risk

Low occupancy rates in commercial buildings could be leading to a ticking time bomb of water quality issues according to Guardian Water Treatment.

To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.

In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
