Aspen Provides Quiet Reliability to Luxury London Apartments

Aspen Pumps, the UK’s market leader in the design and manufacturer of condensate removal pumps, has supplied its innovative Micro-v i4 mini pump for a landmark multi-million pound residential development in Kings Cross, London. This impressive project consists of 145 canal-side apartments, ranging from studios to duplex penthouses and is part of a wider regeneration of the Kings Cross area.

As such a prestigious project it was important to select the right products to install across the complex to meet the high specification required for such luxury apartments. Providing a quiet home environment for occupiers was therefore a key requirement. Fan coils were specified to provide both heating and cooling to in each of the 145 apartments. The Micro-v i4 was then selected to be installed in the fan coil units because it is the quietest condensate pump on the market, helping ensure occupiers would benefit from quiet, luxurious comfort.

“The contractor on the Kings Cross project selected Aspen’s Micro-v i4 pumps as they are not only small and powerful, but also quiet and reliable. The pumps are also easy to install which is crucial in a such a large project,” said Stuart Newbury, Product Manager at Aspen Pumps.

The first on-demand condensate pump – the Micro-v i4 is the next generation of condensate pump only operating as needed. As a result, the Micro-v i4 boasts cost and energy saving benefits, as well as quiet running and a longer life with a 2-year warranty. The Micro-v i4 mini pump does not use a breather tube, so its saves even more space when trying to install into the tightest of locations. Featuring a worry and maintenance free plug-and-play installation, the Micro-v i4 can be installed in multiple orientations.

As sound levels are a key consideration for comfort and wellbeing, the Micro-v i4 has been designed to be ultra-quiet at only 19dBA, which is less than an AC fan on night mode! This makes the pump ideal for high-spec applications where silence is key, such as hotel rooms or offices. The pump’s clever design features a soft start, so occupiers will be unaware of the pump gently starting and stopping, offering truly quiet running.

Ideal for projects where energy efficiency is a must, or where high energy loads from existing plant are an issue, on-demand operation makes common sense, saving energy for the end-user and reducing carbon emissions. Designed with intelligent sophisticated controls and clever sensors that collect data, the Micro-v i4 adjusts switching levels and motor speed depending on the flow rate, thus ensuring it is only working and removing condensate when it is needed.

Suitable for high wall split systems, ducted units and floor standing and chassis AC units, the mini pump is ideal for installing directly inside the air conditioning unit. The Micro-v i4 does not use a breather tube and only one connector is needed when installing it in high wall units, further adding to its installation versatility.

Boasting a raft of smart controls, the Micro-v i4 is also the first pump available that features the convenience of a floatless sensor that is immune to contaminant build up. Plus, to ensure the pump is installed correctly, clever integral controls give a visual indication confirming correct installation.

Aspen Pumps’ extensive range boasts the largest variety of condensate removal pumps for the air conditioning, heating and refrigeration industry, with something suitable for every application. The pumps boast reliability, ease of installation and are amongst the quietest on the market. Aspen Pumps’ continued success and achievements have been built by the hands-on experience of installation engineers, making Aspen Pumps the market leader in condensate removal.
