Smith’s Environmental Products Ltd held a Pumpfest 2018 event at their offices and factory on the 5thJuly 2018 to discuss the central heating pump market. Attended by 14 key plumbers, heating engineers and merchants the event was designed to discuss the changing trends in heating pumps in the UK.
The day comprised of an introductory session followed by a brief presentation by Gary Haynes Managing Director of Smith’s Environmental Products Ltd and Stefano Salvi, General Manager of Taco Italia s.r.l., the manufacturers of the Smith’s ES2/Adapt pump. Following the presentations the group were given a tour of the Smith’s manufacturing facility before discussing the pump marketplace.
At the meeting the group were introduced to the Smith’s ES2/Adapt pump and they were very impressed by several of it’s revolutionary features, especially the ‘unblocking’ feature whereby the pump will sense if there is a blockage in the system caused by dirt and debris and will go through a series of up to 100 oscillating procedures. If it is unable to clear the blockage it will automatically shut down protecting the motor from burning out, and through a red LED light indicate its status, The LED indicator also indicates the status of the pump, green for normal operation, violet for Active Adapt where the pump works out the system demand twice every 30 minutes and adjusts the pump speed accordingly, flashing white LED to indicate another well regarded feature, Auto Air Detection. The pump senses air in the system and goes through an auto air release process.
The group were thoroughly impressed with the pump and can see how it will improve the installation of pumps as well as the LED indicator enabling them to discuss the symptoms of a central heating problem over the phone with their customers without first going to see whether the pump is at fault, then going to the merchants to get a replacement.
