Becker Pumps Corporation First Vacuum Pump Manufacturer to be IE3 Compliant

Cuyahoga Falls, OH (September, 2018) – New Global Premium Efficiency Motor Compliance met by Becker Pumps Corp. Becker is the first manufacturer of industrial vacuum pumps and low pressure compressors to supply the new IE3 (International Efficiency) Premium Efficiency standard motors in the United States across Becker’s complete line of both vacuum and pressure pumps.

This announcement by Becker of the successful compliance with the new motor efficiency standards now required in the USA is of particular significance to all Original Equipment Manufacturers as this new standard went into effect on January 1, 2017. All motors not stocked and shipped after that date must comply with the IE3 mandate as required by law. All electric motors supplied on Becker pumps meet this new global IE3 Premium Efficiency motor standard. This includes all models of pumps, as well as all voltages, both single and three phase, which are 1 horsepower (.75 kW) or larger. (Motors less than 1 horsepower are not required to meet the IE3 mandate.)

If other vacuum pump suppliers are not providing IE3 Premium Efficiency motors, those suppliers are not in compliance with the mandate and, therefore, these motors cannot be sold. What does this mean? Eventually those suppliers will not be able to ship product! This is not an option to customers when running a business relying on this product. Before placing any future orders with a current supplier, this question should be asked, “Are IE3 motors supplied on these pumps?” If the answer is no, check out what Becker Pumps has to offer. Becker is IE3 compliant on all pump models and has a large inventory of vacuum pumps and compressors ready to ship.

As Managing Director of Becker Pumps USA, Jason Rathbun recently stated “Many Original Equipment Manufacturers are playing a type of Russian Roulette with their customers. Not only is it against the law to supply anything other than IE3 Premium Efficiency motors, the end customer suffers the consequences of having increased electricity costs. It’s not a prudent way of doing business and those OEM’s are not looking out for the best interests of their customers.”

Darin Ladd, National Sales Manager for Becker Pumps, added, “In my opinion, customers should demand from their OEM’s that they will be assured of future deliveries and not have to worry about motor issues. The only way to insure that is to make sure they are sending out IE3 motors on their vacuum pumps and compressors. Becker Pumps can insure them that will happen.”
