Hartell Announces New PlenumPlus™ Commercial Grade Condensate Pump at the AHR Show in Chicago

PlenumPlus™ Pump Brings a New Level of Safety and Reliability to Commercial Air-Handling Spaces Such as Venting and Air Ducts

Chicago, IL – January 26, 2015 – Hartell, a brand of Accudyne Industries today announced a new version of the PlenumPlus™ Commercial Grade condensate pump that’s used to remove condensate formed in venting and air ducts in the plenum spaces of office buildings, manufacturing facilities, schools, hospitals, or any other commercial space. The new condensate pump will be on display in booth #4023 at the AHR Show this week at McCormick Place in Chicago.

The PlenumPlus pump has been designed to bring a new level of safety to HVAC applications. The latest version of the pump has successfully passed United Laboratories’ 2043 Fire Test for Heat and Visible Smoke Release for Discrete Products Installed in Air-Handling Spaces. The materials used to construct the pump are fire-resistant, with low-smoke-producing characteristics, as outlined in the National Electric Code, NFPA 70; the International Mechanical Code, NFPA 5000; and the Standard for the Installation of Air Conditioning and Ventilating Systems, NFPA 90A.

The newest version of the PlenumPlus Commercial Grade condensate pump also features a robust design, enhanced pumping capacity and three new levels of motor bearing protection from steam and water splash to ensure maximum motor life. A larger reservoir, plus new serviceable check valves with standard provisions for low level inlets facilitate a wider array of installation options and make for easier maintenance.

“This week at the AHR show, attendees will learn about new innovations that enhance the efficiency and the safety of HVAC solutions, and our new PlenumPlus pump addresses these themes directly,” said William Beard, Director of Sales for Hartell. “Pumps produced by Hartell are known for delivering performance and reliability – and in the case of PlenumPlus – we’ve added a layer of safety that’s critical for discrete plenum applications.”

Anyone interested in seeing the PlenumPlus pump is encouraged to stop by the Hartell booth (#4023) at this week’s AHR Show. Members of the media can arrange an interview with Hartell by contacting Todd Keefe at tkeefe@crosswindpr.com.
