A Commitment to Action

Operate Sustainably is one of Ingersoll Rand’s five strategic imperatives. Led by inspired teams, it is part of Ingersoll Rand’s mission to offer mission-critical flow creation and industrial products and services that improve the lives of our customers while minimizing our impact on the world. In addition to operating our own facilities sustainably, Ingersoll Rand includes a goal to reduce our customer’s greenhouse gas impacts by greater than 15% from Ingersoll Rand products by 2030.

39% of the world’s energy is used to “pump something.” As pump manufacturers, we have a responsibility to design products aimed at making pumps more energy efficient.

ARO, an Ingersoll Rand business, shares in this commitment to develop new products enabling our customers to reduce their energy consumption and environmental impact. As pump technologies advance, we are committed to drastically increasing pump efficiency.

EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump Answers the Call

ARO’s latest innovation, the EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump delivers on our commitment to offer our customers more sustainable options for their mission critical processes.

The EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump has the highest energy efficiency ratings on the market when compared to other positive displacement technologies. z The EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump:

  • Does not require access to or use of compressed air
  • High-performance materials that enable better process efficiency
  • Significant energy efficiency improvement compared to other positive displacement technologies
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Lower total cost of ownership compared to other positive displacement technologies

Utilizing electric pump technologies positions companies to reduce their carbon footprint – not just by reducing their energy usage of the pump itself, but by reducing the dependence on utilities and equipment upstream from the pump as well. Companies who place a priority on converting to clean energysource products, can position themselves as green house gas emissions companies.

The Technology Difference: Energy Efficiency Improvements Lead to Cost Reduction

Different positive displacement pump technologies exist to accomplish many different requirements and applications. Many of these technologies only achieve 10-60% “wire to fluid pumped”* efficiency. When pumped in a controlled lab environment to simulate similar “wire to water flow,” EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump out-performed the other positive displacement technologies tested under similar conditions. The EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump is consistently achieving up to 70% “wire to fluid pumped” efficiencies.

*"Wire to fluid pumped” means not only the mechanical and hydraulic efficiency of the motor and gear box, but considers the efficiency of the full system (pump, gear box, motor, drive and any other electric equipment installed) measured on real applications.

How Does EVO™ Series Accomplish Its Industry Leading Efficiency

Many things in an engineering process can cause loss of energy efficiency. Heat, vibration and noise can all contribute to losses in a process. The EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump was specifically designed to minimize these losses. The unique 3-diaphragm design of the EVO Series™ Electric Diaphragm Pump allows for a more balanced force within the system. This balance results in lower and more intertwined pressure pulsations. The lower pulsation band causes less momentum change of the fluid and the moving components such as the ball checks. All of these features help to minimize vibration and lower noise, which help reduce potential for energy losses.
