New for 2017, the Taco 0015e3 by Taco Comfort Solutions is the only three-setting, ECM-powered circulator on the market. With three easy settings, the 0015e3 replaces all three-speed hydronic circulators in its class. Its variable speed, high-efficiency ECM motor also uses up to 85% less electricity.
The 0015e3 is the solution for contractors who want the durability, efficiency and simplicity of other Taco ECM circulators, but prefer the option of three easy settings. The circulator is ideal for hydronic systems zoned with circulators or zone valves, and provides three maximum-feet-of-head pressure settings to match system requirements – LOW (5 feet), MEDIUM (10 feet), or HIGH (18 feet), with a maximum flow of 16 GPM.
Among the innovative features that make the 0015e3 reliable and easy to install, Taco’s BIO Barrier® protects the pump from system contaminants, especially black iron oxide that otherwise tends to collect around strong ECM magnets. Also, SureStart™, which automatically unblocks a locked rotor and purges air from the circulator. The 0015e3 is double insulated, which eliminates the need for a ground wire.
Due to its energy-saving ECM design, the circulator qualifies for most state, regional, and utility efficiency incentive programs. An integral flow check is included, and both two-bolt or two-way flange models are available.
