Calpeda MÈTA Self Priming Pump (1PH)

A variable speed, multi-stage, self-priming pump with incorporated electronics.

This is a very brief description of Mèta, the new pump from Calpeda recently launched on the market.

Even though it looks the same as the other pumps made by Calpeda, it is different. Important changes are usually associated with changes in shape, but in this case, the revolution is all about substance. 

The sizes and compactness of the new pump, with on-board electronic intelligence, remained the same as the other Calpeda pumps, so that it would fit perfectly into traditional installations.

Designed as a very high efficiency pump, Mèta has an eco-friendly heart that can make the difference in the domestic pump sector, for water supplies and irrigation.

The saving in energy of this new product – approximately 550 kWh per year when used about 4 hours per day on average – can be seen immediately. The advantage is clearly not just economic. If this value is converted into amounts of CO2 not released into the atmosphere, the total comes to approximately 400 kg per year.

Being a variable speed pump, Mèta can control the speed according to the required load. 

What makes it so special?

• Extremely energy efficient

Mèta is a perfect example of Ecodesign and Extended Product Approach.

It fully observes the new regulations, according to which the product is to be considered in its entirety (pump, motor and frequency regulator). It can be described as a product with top grade integration, characterised by the electronics in the motor casing and the control algorithms that make it very efficient. The result? 60% less energy consumption than an already-efficient pump.

• Savings in the raw materials used

The consumption of raw materials, which is continually increasing, is a very important aspect for the environment. To produce Mèta we calculated a base material saving (iron, copper and aluminium) of 45% in relation to traditional pumps. Electronic performance optimisation means that smaller motors can be used and the stages can be reduced from 5 to 2 while maintaining the same levels of performance. Finally, operation at a low temperature helps the motor and the bearings last a good deal longer.
