Grundfos Pumps were delighted to collect their second award for the Grundfos S-tube at the recent Green Apple Awards that were held at the Houses of Parliament.
This is another important win for a truly innovative development. This latest accolade follows on from an award earlier in the year at the Pump Industry Awards where the S-tube was announced as the overall winner of the Technical Innovation of the Year.
These awards recognise that the Grundfos S-tube delivers a solution that combines high efficiency and greater solids handling resulting in significantly lower running costs in wastewater applications for the first time. This is because the new tube shape means no dead zones, as well as no cutting or moving parts that can get worn out, meaning:
- world class hydraulic efficiency of 84% without compromising free passage
- spherical passage up to 160mm offering better solids handling and much improved non-clogging capabilities
- simple, yet robust design that results in longer life and lower maintenance costs.
This was our 9th consecutive Green Apple Award and S-tube received the highest accolade these awards offer – that of UK Green Champion – in the products category. This award recognises the significant difference that S-tube technology can deliver to the wastewater industry. This is a great result that clearly demonstrates the technical advances offered by the Grundfos S-tube have again been recognised as a real step forward.
