Taco ECM High-Efficiency Circulators, Taco Comfort Solutions, plumbing, hydronics, heating, HVAC, ECM pumps Taco Comfort Solutions® has expanded their family of easy to use, high-efficiency ECM circulators with the addition of the 0034e™ and 0034ePlus™ models.  With a maximum of 34 feet of head and 50 gpm, the new circulators offer up to 85% energy savings over a conventional circulator.

These circulators are available with cast iron or NSF/ANSI 61 & 372 certified stainless steel volutes, so they are ideal for closed-loop heating systems as well as domestic hot water recirculation systems. Both circulators also offer a convenient, rotatable control box cover for a professional look, no matter the orientation of the installed circulator.

The 0034e features an easy-to-use dial with five operating modes, including constant pressure, fixed speed, Taco’s exclusive activeADAPT™ self-adjusting proportional pressure, and 0-10V capability. The 0034ePlus adds proportional pressure and more constant pressure settings as well as a digital display with real-time feedback, including watts, GPM, feet of head, and RPM. Both circulators are dual-voltage 115V/230V.

Both new circulators come with exclusive features that make Taco’s ECM high-efficiency circulators so easy to use, including SureStart® automatic unblocking and air purging, BIO Barrier® black iron oxide protection, dual electrical knockouts, six-inch stranded leads, recessed flange nut-grabbers and double insulation so no ground wire is needed.

As soon as Viega LLC introduced its MegaPressG fitting system for joining gas and fuel oil pipes, contractors began asking for it in larger sizes.

The original lineup included fittings for carbon steel pipes from ½” to 2″. They were the first fittings approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications and they quickly proved popular among contractors for their speed, reliability and ease of use. However, the 2″ limit restricted the number of applications in which they could be used.

In February, Viega introduced MegaPressG fittings for 2½”, 3″ and 4″ pipe, creating a comprehensive lineup of fittings approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications. And it’s the only system on the market that allows secure press connections on gas lines 2½” to 4″ in 16 seconds or less.

Constructed of carbon steel with a corrosion-resistant zinc nickel coating and first-of-its-kind graphite separator ring in larger sizes, MegaPressG is suitable for use with ASTM Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 carbon steel pipe

Using MegaPressG means no open flames, faster connections and labor savings, resulting in safer and more efficient projects that come in on time and on budget. It can reduce labor costs by as much as 60% to 90% over traditional methods.

Configurations include elbows, couplings, no-stop couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, adapters, reducing adapters, caps and flanges.

Combining productivity with peace of mind, MegaPressG fittings are equipped with Viega Smart Connect® technology, which allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections during pressure testing.

MegaPressG fittings offer the same proven quality and durability as all Viega products, bringing complete confidence to every job.

Navien introduced three new innovative products in booth 1573 during AHR 2020 in Orlando, FL. The new NPN series non-condensing tankless water heaters, NPE-2 series condensing tankless water heaters and NCB-H series condensing combi-boilers were all displayed at the front of the Navien booth inside the Orange County Convention Center for attendees to get a first look at the technological advancements within each series.

Available in the NPN-Universal series (indoor or outdoor with vent cap) and NPN-Exterior series (outdoor only), Navien utilizes the technology and innovation that helped make the NPE series the number one condensing tankless water heater in North America in their new non-condensing NPN series, with some new additional features. The NPN series is the first and only non-condensing tankless series to offer NaviTech™ technology that includes a stainless-steel heat exchanger and an advanced stainless-steel burner with the same very low NOx level as the NPE. Both the NPN-U and NPN-E have built-in recirculation control, air pressure sensor, water adjustment valve and mixing valve, and are designed with a pin-to-pin matching configuration for easy retrofit installations.

NPE-2

The NPE-2 series brings the biggest update to condensing tankless water heaters since the NPE series changed the landscape of the industry in 2012. The new features found in the NPE-A2 and NPE-S2 series include a turndown ratio up to 15:1, an upgraded advanced multi-line control panel in plain English for easy set up, and increased 2” PVC venting length. The NPE-2 will continue to offer the high-efficiency features that made the NPE the number one selling condensing tankless water heater, such as dual stainless steel heat exchangers, half-inch gas pipe capability up to 24 feet, cascade and common vent capability, industry leading efficiency up to 0.97 UEF, and the patented ComfortFlow™ recirculation system with built-in pump and buffer tank on the NPE-A2.

NCB-H

NCB-H (high output) series condensing combi-boilers are packed with industry leading upgrades to the popular NCB-E series, including industry leading BTU output on DHW, 15:1 turndown ratio, a more dynamic BTU lineup with added models, greater DHW performance, a new DHW module with flow control, enhanced controls with multi-line text display, increased 2” PVC venting length, easy serviceability with upfront 3-way valve and built-in controls for up to 3 zones.

All three innovations are on display inside Navien booth 1573 at AHR in Orlando, FL until February 5, 2020. To learn more, visit NavienInc.com.
