UK condensate removal pump manufacturer Aspen Pumps has supplied its Micro-v i4 mini pump for a multi-million pound residential development in Kings Cross, London.

The 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.

Fan coils were specified to provide both heating and cooling to each of the 145 apartments. The Micro-v i4 was then selected to be installed in the fan coil units.

“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.

Aspen Pumps says that the Micro-v i4 is the first on-demand condensate pump. Because it operates only as needed, the Micro-v i4 offers cost and energy savings, 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 on space when trying to install into the tightest of locations. The plug-and-play Micro-v i4 can be installed in multiple orientations.

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.
