Wilo UK has introduced the latest in its family of energy efficient small circulator pumps. The Wilo-Yonos PICO made its debut in the UK at Ecobuild 2012.
The European Eco-Design Directive - the ErP Directive - will impose strict requirements across the EU on the energy efficiency of glandless pumps starting in 2013. Old, uncontrolled pumps will from then,no longer be allowed to be manufactured although stock will still be available until it has disappeared from merchants shelves. By switching over to new standard high-efficiency pumps like the Wilo-Yonos PICOnow, you are already choosing a future-proof solution as the Yonos meets the requirements of the ErP Directive for 2013.
The "Wilo-Yonos PICO" consumes significantly less energy than required by the best current Arated heating pump. Compared to an uncontrolled old pump, it is possible to achieve up to 90% reductions in electricity consumption thats an energy cost saving of around £85 a year.
This new standard high-efficiency pump is compact and is equipped with a display that shows the current power consumption and the set delivery head. It also offers constant and variable differential pressure control modes. Thanks to its unique automatic ventilation function, the pump automatically evacuates the air from the rotor chamber. In addition, the Yonosssmall size makes installation simple even in awkward installation locations. The popular "Wilo-Connector" makes working on Wilo small pumps significantly easier, allowingthe electrical connection of this pump to be made quickly and without the need of any tools.
The settings for the Yonos are very straightforward - the red button can be constantly set to the first, second or third setting on the scale for the differential pressure control mode.
The "Wilo-Yonos PICO" has been developed for smaller heating and cooling circuits and is available in two power levels with a maximum delivery head of 5 to 6.Its available now from merchants in all the sizes that are commonly encountered on the market.
