QuantumFlo racing

QuantumFlo is attending the biggest event in the plumbing industry, American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE – EPE2014) Convention and Exposition. The convention brings together the best in plumbing design and is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year. It takes place September 20-24 in Chicago, Illinois. Attendees can meet the leader in manufacturing and distribution of advanced, variable speed controlled, packaged pump systems, QuantumFlo, at our booth, #625.

We will be showcasing our latest energy-saving solution, GreenFlo™. GreenFlo™ is an advanced algorithm developed in response to recent energy consumption regulations and comes integrated in our iQFlo™ technology. iQFlo™ was selected as a part of ASPE’s New Product Innovation Showcase 2012 and is a state-of-the-art software that ensures each QuantumFlo pump system performs as energy efficiently as possible. Our CEO Dave Carrier looks forward to QuantumFlo’s showcase at the convention and exposition stating, “We’re excited about the advancements we’ve made since ASPE 2012. Developing GreenFlo™ has taken iQFlo™ one step further, as we continue growing our pump technology.

QuantumFlo Releases GreenFlo™ to Meet Energy Standard for Buildings

greenflo-eblastWe are now helping building owners and supervisors meet growing regulations and standards with GreenFlo™, an algorithm solution that has been added into the software for our packaged pump systems and allows for low water flow detection and the necessary corresponding pump adjustments.

In October, the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1 – 2010, or “Energy Standard for Buildings” as it’s commonly known, continued the focus on energy consumption on project sites by requiring buildings to have some kind of logic circuit that detects low water flow and adjust pumps accordingly. We have taken another step forward in pump technology with GreenFlo™, which addresses the new standards and integrates with our industry-leading software solution, iQFlo™.

The updates will require a choice between two types of systems to meet the regulations for building supervisors and property owners. They can either get a transducer mounted by a contractor at the remote point in the field or provide an algorithm within the system to simulate the actions of a transducer. GreenFlo™ is an advanced version of the latter of the two choices, simplifying the cost and using superior logic strategy to go above and beyond the new standards.

GreenFlo™ is an algorithm built into the current iQFlo™ software package, providing complete automation without any additional costs for a contractor. It takes advantage of our superior logic strategy with high speed ModBus RTU native controls and streaming data, requiring no other equipment costs.

This is just the latest way that we are striving to assert ourselves as the leader in pressure boosting and controls technologies, as we stay committed to energy efficiency, sustainable design, superior workmanship quality and industry leadership.

QuantumFlo Named Finalist for Product Innovation of the Year

QuantumFlo-pumps-and-systems-awardQuantumFlo, the world’s leading manufacturer of pre-packaged pump systems for plumbing and industrial applications, has been awarded second place in the 2012 Pumps & Systems Product Innovation of the Year Award for its groundbreaking software solution, iQFlo™.

The Product Innovation of the Year Award is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the industry, as it highlights systems and solutions that have made a huge impact during their first year in the pumps market. The selection is based on multiple factors, including field testing, evidence of end-user success, as well as voting from the publication’s editorial advisory board.

QuantumFlo’s iQFlo™ was introduced in April 2012 as a software controls product built to optimize water pressure to meet the inconsistent demands of pump systems. It uses an algorithm to address those pressure issues and helps save power and improve energy performance, as well as reduce the carbon footprint.

The innovation of iQFlo™ is in its technology, which delivers a short payback period for both pump remodels and new packaged pump systems. The system is not only an advanced controls complement to variable speed pumps, but it’s also a cost-effective solution that meets many of the pressure control issues that are common throughout the industry.

As a departure from the industry’s standard technology, QuantumFlo’s software helps eliminate stand-by losses and builds up operating speed of decision making at nearly 100 times faster than standard firmware.

Pumps & Systems is the leading news resource for the pump and rotating equipment sector. Over 42,000 engineers, managers, operators and maintenance professionals subscribe to make up the largest circulation of any pump operations publication in the world.
