Consulting-Specifying Engineer selects the fifth generation HYDROVAR and Technologic Intelligent Pump Controller for gold and silver awards

MORTON GROVE, ILL. — Sept. 14, 2017 — Xylem’s Bell & Gossett brand has received two Product of the Year awards from Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine. The fifth generation HYDROVAR earned a gold award in the BAS/Controls/Energy Management category and the TECHNOLOGIC Intelligent Pump Controller earned a silver award in the Pumps/Pump Controls category.

Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s Product of the Year award is an annual reader’s choice contest that highlights the top new products in HVAC, fire/life safety, and electrical and plumbing systems engineering markets. Readers vote in as many categories for which they are qualified based on technological advancement, service to the industry and market impact.

“We are honored that the Consulting-Specifying Engineer audience has recognized Bell & Gossett for our product innovations and the advances our people and these system solutions are making on the industry,” said Mark Handzel, Vice President, Product Regulatory Affairs & Director, HVAC/Commercial Building Services Americas, AWS. “The fifth generation HYDROVAR and the TECHNOLOGIC Intelligent Pump Controller highlight our commitment to reducing costs and installation time for our customers while providing superior performance and energy savings.”

The fifth generation HYDROVAR was selected due to its ability to accurately adapt to a variety of system demands while maximizing pump performance and cost and energy savings. HYDROVAR features industry-leading multimaster functionality that enables each individual pump to take control of the system if one or more units or sensors are not active, reducing energy consumption of a pump by as much as 70 percent.

The TECHNOLOGIC Intelligent Pump Controller earned the silver award for its two advanced controller functions for hydronic HVAC systems ¾ the Start-Up Genie and an electronically controlled bypass ¾ engineered to reduce on-site setup and configuration time by more than 50 percent. These advanced controller functions help reduce operating costs, optimize building systems and ensure ease of service. Total set-up time with the Start-Up Genie is about 15 minutes, whereas most products today require 45 minutes for installation.

As winners, both HYDROVAR and TECHNOLOGIC will be highlighted in the September 2017 issue of Consulting-Specifying Engineer.
