Aspen updates Mini Lime pump

UK: Condensate pump manufacturer Aspen Pumps has launched the next generation model of its Silent+ Mini Lime pump.

Said to feature a raft of design innovations, this new mini pump claims unrivalled performance, quiet operation and simple maintenance, and features touch control with site-specific commissioning and 4-stage-filtration.

Noise levels are reduced thanks to a combination of technologies. These include an anti-vibration pulse damper, an anti-vibration mounted motor and a soft start function.

“With unique sound dampening technology and a soft start function to minimise noise levels, the Silent+ Mini Lime is perfect for commercial use where silence is important,” said Aspen product manager Stuart Newbury.

The Silent+ Mini Lime also features new touch control options. This offers site-specific commissioning allowing engineers a choice of mode for the safety switch, either normally open or normally closed. In addition, the touch control offers LED feedback providing a visual operation guide. This allows engineers to check at the touch of a button whether the pump is running and whether the high-level safety switch is operating, as well as offering easy trouble shooting.

Suitable for high wall split systems, the Silent+ Mini Lime sits in the trunking elbow and offers left or right install options. Maintenance is also made easy thanks to a quick release reservoir and 4-stage filtration to reduce pump blockages.

The new pump comes with a 2-year warranty.
