6800 VMS DE Booster 30-30 PanelUP

  • Summary
  • Applications

    New and retrofit water boosting installations in mid to large size residential, commercial, or industrial settings (such as apartment buildings, office towers, hospitals, hotels, schools, water treatment plants, factories, etc.)

  • Description

    The Armstrong Design Envelope 6800 Boosters are fully assembled, programmed, integrated and factory-tested turn-key booster systems. They are equipped with vertical multistage pumps and come in arrangements of 2 to 5 pumps. The integrated controls allow for superior performance and energy efficiency across broad operating envelopes. Most suitable for applications where energy consumption and low maintenance are critical, installation space comes at a premium, and occupant comfort is a high priority.

  • Materials

    Piping: stainless steel 304

  • Configuration

    The 6800 Booster range offers enhanced features, such as improved touchscreens, more performance envelopes, an easy-to-use selection software, and onboard energy and flow readings both present and historic. For the full improved feature set please refer to the Solution Outline for this product.

  • Performance range

    Up to 2000 USgpm (450 m3/hr) flow; up to 370 psi (22 bar) pressure

  • Power Range

    Up to 250 hp (up to 185 kW)

Lowest Installed Cost

  • Compact design for 10-15% smaller footprint and related mechanical room space savings over competitive models of equal capacity
  • Integrated intelligent controls eliminate procurement and installation costs (mounting, wiring, calibration) for standalone variable frequency drives
  • Superior energy performance qualifies for significant cost recovery under utility and government rebate programs
Design Envelope

Lowest installed cost. Lowest operating cost.


Lowest Operating Cost

  • Integrated intelligent controls – combined with perfect component match-up and tuning – for up to 70% in energy savings over traditional constant speed and hybrid booster systems
  • Advanced software features and operating routines substantially reduce maintenance requirements (e.g. uniform load distribution across all pumps avoids pump overloading and premature failure; controlled soft-fill mitigates water hammer and related plumbing system damages)

Lowest Environmental Cost

  • Up to 70% decrease in energy consumption reduces operational greenhouse gas emissions by the same amount
  • Factory assembled system packs and ships more economically for reduced packaging waste compared to individual component shipments 



Lowest Project and Operating Risk

  • High-efficiency performance envelopes allow for a performance comfort zone around the preliminary design point, enabling swift and easy adaptation to changing design, site or operating conditions
  • Integrated intelligent controls afford fast and easy commissioning 
  • Single source-responsibility for optimum design and field support
