New Little Giant® VCC-20-P Series Provides Solution for Limited Space Installations

FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2016) - Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) offers the new Little Giant® VCC-20-P Series designed for automatic collection and removal of condensate from air conditioning, refrigeration, and dehumidification equipment installed in air handling and plenum applications. Common applications include office buildings, manufacturing facilities, schools, hospitals, or any other commercial limited space installation where gravity drainage is impractical. The VCC-20-P Series is constructed with plastics that have been tested by Underwriters Laboratories to meet the requirements of UL Standard 2043 "Fire Test for Heat and Visible Smoke Release of Discrete Products and Their Accessories Installed in Air Handling Spaces." UL Standard 2043 is a fire test method for determining the fire performance response of discrete products intended to be installed in air handling spaces, such as above suspended ceilings or below floors.

Little Giant's VCC-20-P Series delivers pumping performance of 80 GPH at 1 foot and 20 feet shut off (on 115 V). With a low profile height of 1 3/4 inches, the pump is designed for ceiling installations, use with equipment featuring a low outlet drain position, or any installation where space is limited. The pump features a 1/30 hp motor, vertical centrifugal pump design, automatic start and stop switch, and a thermally protected fan-cooled motor.
