Heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) systems rely on pumps. From condensate pumps that circulate steam in heat exchangers to chilled water circulation pumps in unique air conditioning applications, they keep systems running and provide heating or cooling where needed.

It is therefore no surprise that a number of pump manufacturers will exhibit at AHR Expo 2020. The large event is co-sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). Pumps highlights include:

  • GRI Pumps will be at booth 5891 in the West Hall. GRI provides custom-engineered centrifugal, circulator and water pumps for OEM engineers unable to find off-the-shelf solutions. GRI will display their Integrity Series brushless DC circulation pumps, designed for OEM customization.
  • Hartell (West Hall, booth 653), a division of Ingersoll Rand, will showcase its commercial-grade PlenumPlus condensate pumps for their robust design, high capacity and heat and fire resistant features.
  • Armstrong Fluid Technology (West Hall, booth 4161) will feature their pipe-mounted two-pump Design Envelope Tango design for parallel pumping or full redundancy operations. Armstrong said the pump design can save up to 75% over comparable constant-speed or variable-frequency operated installations.
  • Ritchie Engineering’s Yellow Jacket product line will exhibit at booth 2623 in the West Hall. Yellow Jacket will showcase their Bullet vacuum pump, a two-state rotary vane oil-sealed pump that achieves vacuum of 25 micron or better.

The AHR Expo will take place February 3-5 in Orlando, Florida.
