PART 2Energy-Using Products (continued)

DIVISION 13Commercial Pre-Rinse Spray Valves (continued)

Marginal note:Information

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with 10 C.F.R. §431.264 and provided to the Minister in respect of a commercial pre-rinse spray valve:

  • (b) if it is manufactured on or after January 28, 2019, the spray force in newtons (ounce-force).

DIVISION 14Pumps

SUBDIVISION AClean Water Pumps

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this subdivision.

10 C.F.R. Appendix A

10 C.F.R. Appendix A means Appendix A to Subpart Y, Part 431 of Title 10 to the United States Code of Federal Regulations, entitled Uniform Test Method for the Measurement of Energy Consumption of Pumps, as amended from time to time. (appendice A 10 C.F.R.)

10 C.F.R. §431.465(b)(4)

10 C.F.R. §431.465(b)(4) means the table to paragraph 431.465(b)(4) of Subpart Y, Part 431 of Title 10 to the United States Code of Federal Regulations, as amended from time to time. (10 C.F.R. §431.465(b)(4))

best efficiency point

best efficiency point means the pump hydraulic power operating point that results in a maximum efficiency. (point de rendement maximal)

clean water

clean water means water that has a maximum non-absorbent solid content of 0.25 kg/m3(0.016 lb/ft3), a maximum dissolved solid content of 50 kg/m3 (3.1 lb/ft3) and a total gas content that does not exceed the saturation volume and that may include additives necessary to prevent the water from freezing down to -10°C (14°F). (eau claire)

clean water pump

clean water pump means a pump – with or without mechanical equipment, driver and controls, that is designed for pumping clean water – other than a fire pump, a self-priming pump, a prime-assist pump, a magnet-driven pump, a pump designed to be used in a nuclear facility, a pump designed to Canadian or United States military specifications or a pump designed and marketed for use as a pool pump, that

  • (a) is one of the following types:

    • (i) an end suction close-coupled pump with a maximum specific speed of 5000 RPM,

    • (ii) an end suction frame mounted pump with its own bearings and with a specific speed not more than 5000 RPM,

    • (iii) an in-line pump,

    • (iv) a radially split, multi-stage, vertical, in-line diffuser casing pump, or

    • (v) a submersible turbine pump with a bowl diameter not greater than 152 mm (6 in),

  • (b) has a shaft input power not less than 0.75 kW (1 horsepower) and not greater than 150 kW (200 horsepower) at best efficiency point and full impeller diameter;

  • (c) has a flow rate of 5.68 m3/h (25 US gallons/min) or greater at best efficiency point and full impeller diameter;

  • (d) has a maximum head of 139.9 m (459 ft) at best efficiency point and full impeller diameter;

  • (e) has a design temperature range that lies within -10 and 120°C (14 and 248°F); and

  • (f) is designed to operate with either a 2-pole or 4-pole induction motor or a non-induction motor with a nominal speed of rotation of either 1800 RPM or 3600 RPM, as determined in accordance with 10 C.F.R. Appendix A, and in which the driver and impeller rotate at the same speed. (pompe à eau claire)

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) A clean water pump is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 806, a clean water pump is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after January 27, 2020.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standard

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standard that applies to a clean water pump is the maximum pump energy index set out for the applicable equipment class in 10 C.F.R. §431.465(b)(4).

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A clean water pump complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by 10 C.F.R. Appendix A that apply to a clean water pump as defined in section 804.

Marginal note:Information

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be provided to the Minister in respect of a clean water pump:

  • (a) its nominal power in kilowatts;

  • (b) the impeller diameter in millimetres;

  • (c) its type, namely, end suction close-coupled pump, end suction frame mounted with own bearings pump, in-line pump, radially split multi-stage, vertical, in-line diffuser casing pump or submersible turbine pump;

  • (d) its nominal speed of rotation collected in accordance with 10 C.F.R. Appendix A;

  • (e) its mode of operation, namely, constant load or variable load; and

  • (f) its pump energy index value collected in accordance with 10 C.F.R. Appendix A.
