Inside and out condensate pump
The latest introductions are based around the new Si-20 pump, which is fitted with rubber dampers to reduce noise caused by vibration. In operation, the sound level of the Si-20 will remain extremely silent (22 dBA) whatever the amount of condensate, says Sauermann.
Its slim design allows it to easily fit inside a mini-split air conditioner, but also alongside the unit (in lineset cover). The Si-20 is also fitted with a pre-installed drain-safe device.
The second product is the Omega Pack, an under the unit pump housing containing an Si-20, a detection unit, all accessories required, and a shell in two parts. According to Sauermann, the soft design of this shell and its pure white colour make it the perfect fit for the most recent ac units. Reversible, the shell can be installed on either side under the unit, right or left.
Most of the accessories are pre-installed to allow a quick and easy installation.
