Pumps and systems in harmony achieve the ultimate performance

According to Grundfos, changing to high-efficiency pumps that incorporate advanced motor technology can reduce an average pump’s energy consumption by up to 60%. Pumps account for 10% of global electricity consumption, and many are said to be needlessly inefficient.

To maximise the efficiency of a pump, it should be considered as part of an entire system, rather than in isolation. Delivering energy savings with a return on investment of less than two years is perfectly feasible.

Taking an entire pumping system into account makes it possible to optimise how pumps, drives, controls and protection, measurement and communication units work together as part of one system.

Grundfos offers just such an approach with iSolutions.
