UK: Aspen Pumps has launched what it describes as the first on-demand air conditioning condensate pump.

The Micro-v i4 is said to operate only as needed, and boasts quiet running (only 19dBA), a longer life and comes with a two-year warranty. It does not use a breather tube, so saves on space, and is said to offer simple, maintenance-free installation.

Said to be designed for projects where energy efficiency is a must, or where high energy loads from existing plant are an issue, Aspen says the on-demand operation makes common sense, saving energy for the end-user and reducing carbon emissions.

Designed with intelligent controls and clever sensors that collect data, the Micro-v i4 adjusts switching levels and motor speed depending on the flow rate. Having a floatless sensor also means that is immune to contaminant build up.

Suitable for high wall splits, ducted units and floor standing and chassis air conditioning units, the mini pump is ideal for installing directly inside the air conditioning unit. To ensure the pump is installed correctly, clever integral controls give a visual indication confirming correct installation.
