641/2009: Circulators in buildings

Last updated: 29 October 2019

A new review study on Circulators was finalized in April 2018 and a first proposal for ecodesign regulation updates was finalized May 28, 2019. 

  • Requirements for circulators entered into force 2009 and apply from 2013. Two amendments have been added:  Amendment (622/2012) regarding ecodesign requirements for glandless standalone circulators and glandless circulators integrated in products.
  • Amendment 

The measure defines circulator as a glandless impeller pump up to 2 500 W used primarily for central heating systems.

A standalone circulator is a circulator separate from the boiler, glandless means that the circulator has the shaft of the motor directly coupled to the impeller (the motor is also immersed in the pumped medium).
