For the sixth time since 2010, Xylem Inc., a global water technology leader focused on solving the world's most challenging water issues, and its Bell & Gossett brand, have received a Product of the Year recognition, most recently for the B&G Suction Diffuser Plus by Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine. The Suction Diffuser Plus is an innovative flow-straightening centrifugal pump accessory that helps maintain efficiency, improve flow conditions and eliminate recirculation zones, reducing energy waste.

The annual Product of the Year program was established to provide CSE readers with information about the leading new products in the HVAC, fire/life safety, electrical and plumbing systems engineering markets. This year, readers, many of whom are daily product users, recognized the market-leading B&G Suction Diffuser Plus with a Bronze Award in the HVAC category.

"We are pleased that CSE readers acknowledged the energy efficiency benefits, quality and reliability of the Suction Diffuser Plus and nominated it as one of the best new products of 2016," said Mark Handzel, Vice President, Product Regulatory Affairs, and Director, HVAC and Commercial Buildings, Americas, Xylem. "The innovative Flow Cone technology enables the pump accessory to retain as much as 5 percent more of its intrinsic efficiency than similar products, ensuring the highest pump efficiency for a broad range of HVAC applications."

The Suction Diffuser Plus was developed to provide ideal flow conditions to maintain increased efficiencies. The product's compact footprint is easily retrofitted into previous system designs. Other product benefits include:

  • A patent-pending Flow Cone design that addresses increasingly stringent ASHRAE and MEI efficiency guidelines by improving flow conditions and eliminating recirculation zones, which reduces energy waste.
  • A mesh throwaway start-up strainer that ensures clean and trouble-free performance at installation. A large-diameter orifice cylinder that prevents debris from entering the pump suction, resulting in reduced maintenance costs.
  • Optional pressure/temperature ports that allow operators to check system conditions and verify start-up strainer presence without having to shut down the pump system, saving installers time and effort.
