A Grundfos variable speed pump

Variable Speed Pumps

Increasing water pressure to a specific set point and keeping the pressure even though flow and inlet pressure vary can be achieved using viable speed pumps.

Water pressure typically fluctuates during the day due to the changes in demand. It is vital to keep a constant water pressure for the customer’s comfort. Grundfos variable speed pumps have pressure gauges that allow for the output to be adjusted, which keeps the water pressure constant.

Applicable System Configurations:

  • Direct boosting systems
  • Zone divided systems
  • Roof-top tank systems
  • Connected system with break tanks

The Grundfos Hydro MPC booster range, CRE multi-stage pump and all Grundfos E-pumps are examples of variable speed constant pressure pumps that cope with varying flow and inlet pressure.

Grundfos CRE Range

The CRE range is a multi-functional vertical multi-stage pump with a built-in variable speed drive in various flow and pressure sizes. The Grundfos CRE adapts its performance to match the current conditions and ideal pressure, temperature and flow. Each Grundfos CRE has MGE motors fitted to increase efficiency and control.

Useful Applications:

  • Water supply
  • Washing and cleaning
  • Water treatment
  • Boiler feed
  • Temperature control

Hydro MPC

The Grundfos Hydro MPC is an advanced variable-speed pump ideal for pressure-boosting systems used for potable water applications. The range has up to 6 parallel connected pumps and an advanced controller.

The Hydro MPC is a premium solution in Grundfos’ pressure-boosting offerings. They can handle the operational challenges of any boosting application, and their easy set-up and connectivity make them the preferred choice for complex systems in buildings, industrial processes and water utility installations.

Grundfos TPE2 and TPE3 Variable Speed Pumps

The Grundfos TPE2 and TPE3 pump families are variable speed, vertical in-line volute pumps that can be used in a variety of commercial building applications. The pumps are single-stage and have motors with a built-in frequency converter, allowing different control methods to be employed. This translates into real benefits with respect to energy savings and increased comfort.

This pump range is notable for its high levels of reliability and efficiency.  Quiet, highly-efficient IE3 motors are standard components. All TP pumps are electro-coated to ensure high corrosion resistance.

TPE3 and TPE2 are all-round in-line pumps that can be used in all heating, cooling and district energy systems. TPE3 and TPE2 make a significant difference in terms of comfort and system efficiency in many situations. Including:

  • one-string heating systems
  • heat recovery system
  • boiler shunt pump
  • domestic hot water recirculation.

How does the Grundfos TP Range Meet Safety Standards?

Grundfos TPE3 have frequency converters built into the motors and are equipped with factory-fitted integrated differential pressure and temperature sensors. This delivers a preset solution for quick and safe installation.

The motor requires no external motor protection. This means that the built-in protection, i.e. electrical, over-voltage, under-voltage and overload, is safeguarded.

There is a ‘limit exceeded’ function that monitors any two known parameters, and that will react if parameters are exceeded (TPE2).
