Armstrong Fluid Technology's Design Envelope Tango pump has been awarded the Environmental Contribution of the Year at the 2019 BPMA Pump Industry Awards.

Founded by the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) in 2000, the Pump Industry Awards program celebrates the achievements of pump companies and individuals

Wayne Rose, Armstrong’s UK acquisition integration leader, who accepted the award on behalf of Armstrong Fluid Technology said, “These awards are particularly important to our industry because they focus entirely on pump technology and celebrate the achievements of the world’s very best fluid technology design engineers. We’re extremely proud that our Design Envelope Tango pump has been selected for this award from a shortlist of outstanding examples of new product design.”

Judges commented on the pump’s levels of efficiency and Parallel Sensorless Pump Control. Using advanced design, embedded intelligence and connectivity, as well as motor efficiency exceeding the IE4 standard, the Tango pumps can deliver energy savings of more than 30% compared to traditional approaches, said company officials.
