Relaunch: 6-Inch High Capacity Submersible Pumps are now Compliant to all Federal Energy Efficiency Standards

May 09, 2020 | Products, Update

Franklin Electric continually invests in developing and delivering pumps with improved efficiency and performance. With these investments, the 6-Inch High Capacity Submersible Pumps are compliant to all federal energy efficiency standards. Energy conservation and product efficiency improvements are key components driving innovation for Franklin Electric. These new 6-inch High Capacity Submersible Pumps, with increased efficiency, are just one piece in a growing family of high-efficiency products. The high-efficiency packages provide more value, performance, and opportunity to serve customers' water needs.

As efficiency updates have been made to these pumps, the product line has also been optimized and consolidated to one product family and will fall under Franklin Electric's premium submersible pump construction style known as Tri-Seal.

Reminder: DOE Efficiency Standards

Effective January 27, 2020*, a Department of Energy (DOE) regulation requires all commercial, industrial, and groundwater pumps manufactured to operate within a specified horsepower range to meet their new energy conservation standard.

*All the pumps that fall under the regulation made after the implementation date will have the appropriate DOE mandated nomenclature on the products nameplate label. Pumps manufactured prior to this date may still be purchased and operated.

As a quick overview, the new DOE standards affect pumps with performance characteristics or specifications within the following ranges:

  • 1 to 200 horsepower (HP) with shaft power at the best efficiency point (BEP), at full impeller diameter for the number of stages required for testing to the standard
  • 25 gallons per minute (gpm) and greater (at BEP and full impeller diameter)
  • 459 feet of head maximum (at BEP at full impeller diameter and the number of stages specified for testing)
  • Design temperature range from 14 to 248°F
