Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) recently announced its planned expansion to its line of condensate pumps with the introduction of the VCMA-20-PRO series. With the slimmest footprint of all Little Giant condensate pumps, the VCMA-20-PRO Series offers the broadest range of installation flexibility, allowing for critical condensate removal from air conditioning, refrigeration, and dehumidification equipment even in tight spaces. The pump is also suitable for high efficiency oil and gas-fired condensing furnace and condensing boiler equipment.
The vertical-type pump measures only 6.5″ x 10.2″ x 4.8″ and features a 3/8″ O.D. barbed with 1/4-turn quick release locking discharge adapter plus built-in check valve. This allows the unit to be serviced without removing tubing to help eliminate water spills. Three 1-1/8″ diameter inlet openings (two fitted with removal cap plugs) allow the pump to be used with multiple types of equipment, including air conditioners and furnace systems. Additional benefits include:
- An external float-activated switch that automatically detects high water levels
- Rubber feet to absorb vibration on hard surface installations and reduce noise from the unit
- An optional anti-sweat sleeve for applications where high humidity would otherwise result in condensation on the tank exterior
The VCMA-20-PRO Series joins an extensive line of Little Giant condensate pump equipment, including standard condensate removal pumps, low profile condensate removal pumps, in-pan condensate removal pumps, plenum and high-temperature pumps, mini-split pumps, and specialty pumps like evaporative cooler pumps and ice machine replacement pumps. The VCMA Series, originally launched in 1999, has long been trusted by HVAC professionals.
