Wilo-SiBoost Smart Helix EXCEL – The smart pressure-boosting system with low overall energy consumption

In densely populated countryside, water transport is often associated with leakage risks. This results in high operating costs. Our solution: the Wilo-SiBoostSmart Helix EXCEL significantly reduces overall power consumption thanks to its top-quality components (hydraulics and motors) as well as a switchgear which supports leakage detection via an optional communication interface.

Highly efficient

.Thanks to the interaction of new pump design, high-efficiency hydraulics and future-proof EC motors, this series of pumps consumes considerably less of that valuable energy. This means the total power consumption of the system is significantly reduced.

Operational reliability

The pressure-boosting systems need to be adapted to a whole range of different requirements, so that even complex water circuits with a large number of consumers are optimally supplied at all times. Water transport can involve dynamic pressure losses and risks of leakage. Here, Wilo can offer its customers a first-class solution for operational reliability. Thanks to its improved monitoring system with the extra new control mode delta p-v and the optional interface to the SCADA connection, it enables the customer to detect leaks indirectly.

In this way, the system provides an early warning of possible leakages, leading to quicker reaction time.

Easy operation

We develop needs-oriented, future-proof solutions for systematic and efficient water transport.The innovative control and regulating system makes operation both fast and convenient. This facilitates regular maintenance and has a positive effect on the operating costs.

Equipment/function

  • 2 – 4 pumps per system of the Helix EXCEL 4 to Helix EXCEL 52 series, with high-efficiency EC motor and continuous speed control via integrated frequency converter on each pump
  • Automatic pump control via Smart Controller SCe
  • Parts that come in contact with the fluid are corrosion-resistant
  • Base frame made of galvanised steel, with height-adjustable vibration absorbers for insulation against structure-borne noise
  • Shut-off device on the suction and pressure sides of each pump
  • Non-return valve on the pressure side of each pump
  • Diaphragm pressure vessel 8 l, PN 16, pressure side
  • Pressure sensor, pressure side
  • Pressure gauge, pressure side
  • Removable cover for protection of system components (not for Helix EXCEL 52 series)
  • Optional low-water cut-out switchgear with pressure gauge, suction side
