The top floor maternity suites of a 5-story mixed-use commercial/medical building in the Twin Cities had been experiencing low pressure. To meet pressure requirements for the Minneapolis-based medical clinic, a Wilo Helix EXCEL pressure boosting system was installed.
When it came time to specify a product to fix this issue, the ECM-driven Helix EXCEL became the ideal choice. With only a minimal footprint available, the Helix EXCEL 270-01 was perfect and provided energy and cost savings. The Wilo EC motors on a multistage pump system can provide up to 70% energy savings over traditional motors & variable frequency drives.
Having the mechanical room located on the main floor of the building alongside office suites, noise was a consideration as well. Even at the high speeds, the Helix EXCEL is exceptionally quiet. When it came time for the install, it was a smooth “out of the box” solution. No separate panel was required, as the Wilo Helix EXCEL is a complete system ready to go, with fully integrated controls that are programmable right on the face of the pump. Using the Wilo Red Button technology made the set-up process stress-free.
