Viron eVo Pumps
The next evolution in energy efficiency
AstralPool, Australia’s leaders in energy efficient pool pumps release the next evolution in energy efficiency. Viron eVo Pumps are a range of fully variable speed energy efficient pumps to suit all pool sizes, filtration systems and your budget.
Most swimming pools are effectively filtered and sanitised with flow rates ranging from 120 to 200 litres per minute. In fact they will never require more than 250 to 300 litres per minute for tasks such as cleaning the filter or vacuuming the pool, and for these the Viron P320 eVo is ideal. However, for larger pools, multiple Spa Jets, water features or in floor cleaning systems, a larger capacity pump may be required. For these applications, AstralPool have developed the Viron P600 eVo, a pump with an impressive 600 litres per minute flow rate.
Simplicity of Operation
Unlike so many complicated appliances today, Viron eVo has been carefully designed for ease of operation. Three programmed speeds are factory preset and will suit most pools and most applications. Each speed however, is able to be adjusted with a simple press of an up or down button. Operation is intuitive, with specific design input from the non IT generation to make the Viron eVo as user friendly as possible.
The perfect match for your pool
Many factors dictate the ideal flow rate for your pool or spa. The filter often limits the maximum flow, but so will the plumbing and other equipment installed such as chlorinators, heaters, cleaners and water features. Each pump speed can be changed to optimise the water flow to suit your pool shape, cleaner type, size and location, making the Viron eVo range of pumps the most flexible and easy to use variable speed pumps on the market. Suction cleaners, pressure cleaners, waterfalls, spa jets and infloor cleaning systems are all easy to cater for with Viron eVo Pumps’ flexibility and programmability.
Increasing or decreasing the speed of a pump simply changes the flow rate by the same rate. However, the actual energy used to change the speed and flow varies dramatically. Halve the speed of your pump and the flow rate will also halve but, the energy consumed drops by more than 85%. Compared to conventional single speed pumps, the Viron eVo pump will save between $700 and $1,200 every year in operating costs.
The Viron eVo range takes new steps forward in environmentally friendly pumps. In fact, a conventional single speed pump uses more energy, and is the cause of more CO2 emissions than almost any other household appliance. Viron eVo pumps reduce energy consumption by up to 90% and effectively reduce greenhouse emissions by up to 90% (when power supplied from coal fired power plants). But, manufacturing a pump also contributes to greenhouse emissions. The larger the motor, the more raw materials go into it, and the more greenhouse emissions are used to produce the motor. AstralPool produce the right size motor for your individual application, reducing our carbon footprint in the manufacturing process.
Viron P320 EVO
Ideal for the average sized pool, the P320 eVo has a flow rate sufficient to back wash up to 30” or 800mm diameter sand filters, provide a powerful vacuum when cleaning the pool and drive up to 6 spa jets. The large liquid crystal display clearly shows the RPM of the motor and enables adjustment of the start up priming time, priming flow rate, and visual display of each speed setting. The inbuilt 24 hour timer is easily enabled and provides up to four time periods each day with different speed settings to provide the perfect flow rate for your pool.
Viron P600 EVO
The flagship AstralPool pump incorporates an inbuilt time clock and 4 timer periods for each day. A different speed can be saved to each timer period allowing the ultimate in flexibility. Special applications such as in floor cleaning or programming water features are enabled
using the timeclock and speed selection for different times of day. The Viron P600 eVo is capable of the most demanding applications with high flow and high pressure all the while delivering the utmost in energy efficiency. In addition the P600 eVo incorporates electronic power factor correction which provides even further reductions in power consumption, even on maximum speed.
