the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
Chula Vista, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
Laing Thermotech is pleased to announce that its DDC Electronics Cooling pump is now RoHS-compliant. The DDC is leading the way by being the first product in its class to meet the new RoHS Directive, which became effective July 1, 2006. RoHS compliance is important because it allows American manufacturers to produce and sell complete units in the EU.
"We are excited to be able to provide the first small circulator pump that complies with the RoHS requirements," says Laing's CEO, Scott S. Shimer.
The RoHS Directive stands for, "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment." More specifically, the Directive prohibits the placement on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.
Laing's ground-breaking DDC is the perfect solution for manufacturers that are looking for a RoHS-compliant pump for a wide variety of uses including: chillers, DI (di-ionized) water applications, biomedical, biofuels, filtration systems, medical equipment, fuel cells and optic, as well as most advanced electronics cooling. The broad range of applications makes the DDC one of the most versatile circulator pumps on the market today. The DDC pump is the smallest pump in its class and can fit into very confined spaces. When compared to other pumps in its class, the DDC:
- performs at a higher level
- uses considerably less power
- costs less to operate
- requires virtually no maintenance
- lasts much longer
Laing's launch of the RoHS-compliant DDC is indicative of the company's legacy of offering innovative products that meet industry and consumer demand. The company is an industry pioneer with a long history of bringing revolutionary products to the marketplace. Laing released the first practical do-it-yourself instant hot water circulation system and, today, it offers a full line of low-energy-consumption, fractional-horsepower pumps for residential, solar and industrial use. Recently Laing introduce the revolutionary solution for owners of tankless water heater.
