Wilo-Salmson Sets New Standard in Providing Instant Hot Water


Wilo-Salmson, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of pumps, has set a new standard with its range of Wilo-Star-Z circulators for secondary hot water. The circulators keep water constantly circulating around a secondary circuit so that when you turn on your hot tap, hot water flows immediately without any frustrating wait.

‘In the past, people sometimes had to let taps or showers run for ages until hot water finally arrived,’ says Gary Wheatley, Technical Manager at Wilo-Salmson. ‘This was an annoying waste of time, not to mention extremely wasteful of water.’

It’s estimated that waiting for hot water wastes as much as 5 litres per household per day in England and Wales alone, which is in excess of 85 million litres per day. Gary Wheatley comments, ‘Wilo-Star-Z circulators help avoid this waste and therefore improve all-round quality of life for the house owner.’

The Wilo-Star-Z series is a range of glandless, screwed-end circulating pumps. They feature an oxide ceramic hollow shaft which is highly resistant to corrosion and offers exceptional life expectancy.

The circulator pumps make surprisingly little noise due to the ceramic shaft and graphite bearings. The single speed motor is non-overloading and offers the option of either left or right hand cable entry.

The Wilo-Star-Z series has just been strengthened by a new option for a digital timer. Incredibly easy to use, the new timer makes it simpler than ever to set the pumps so that they only operate when hot water is likely to be in demand. Additionally, this timer option makes the Wilo-Star-Z an ideal candidate for calorifier de-stratification applications.

Gary Wheatley concludes, ‘It’s a clear trend that more and more homes are being fitted with secondary hot water circulator pumps. Within a few years, we believe that the Wilo-Star-Z will be seen to have set a new standard of comfort and convenience in providing instant hot water.’

Multi screw pump moves highly viscous heavy oil at low NPSHa

22.02.2024 -

At a tank farm in a Brazilian sea port, two centrifugal pumps were used for transferring heavy oil from storage tanks to road tankers or vessels until February 2020. This required the high viscosity of the medium to be reduced by means of diesel injection, costing the owner at least 2,000 US dollars each day. In addition, the centrifugal pumps regularly broke down due to cavitation damage. The owners decided to initially replace one of the two centrifugal pumps with a NOTOS multi screw pump from NETZSCH. Due to its very good suction capabilities, the selected four-screw 4NS is also suitable for highly viscous media with up to 200,000 cSt, achieving a flow rate of up to 3000 m³/h.
