Until now, a choice always had to be made when selecting wastewater pumps, as to whether to focus on free passage to obtain reliable operation or high efficiency to achieve low operational costs.
With the newly launched S-Tube from Grundfos, a completely new technology means a pump solution that combines both attributes for the very first time.
This important and exciting new development was recently launched to key customers and contacts from the wastewater sector at an event at Bedford Autodrome. Guests spent an exhilarating day which combined racing around a circuit at high speed as well as finding out more about Grundfos’ engineering feat in delivering the world’s most advanced impeller – the Grundfos S-Tube – and by the end of the day they were all very impressed by both.
In addition to the unique combination of the newly design S-Tube impeller with large free passage and high efficiency, the pump is also fitted with the energy-efficient Grundfos Blueflux motor technology that already meets the strictest efficiency requirements. When you combine the Grundfos wastewater pumps with Grundfos’ control and surveillance systems, you end up with the intelligent Autoadapt, which automatically ensures optimum operation, even under changing conditions.
All this added up to a launch that isn’t just evolutionary but revolutionary within the wastewater industry – and is yet another first for Grundfos.
