A network pumping station ensures collection and transport of wastewater to larger pumping stations. Grundfos can supply and customise a complete network pumping station to match your requirements for size and design. Grundfos can supply complete prefabricated pumping stations with submerged pumps systems, level sensors and control solutions, and dosing solutions can also be added.
The prefabricated pumping station solution is delivered as an all-in-one unit complete with pumps, piping, valves, controls, and service facilities. The prefabricated unit is easily transportable to wherever it is required. In addition, Grundfos can supply pump functionality that provides water hammer protection and helps reduce the build-up of H2S by lessening retention time in the pipes.
Wastewater systems involve great fluctuations in demand for performance, and your pumping solutions must be able to respond immediately when demand changes or incidents occur, protecting your system against the risk of water hammer, for example.
The Grundfos ranges of SE/SL and S pumps used are specifically designed for durable use and heavy sewage flows and can be installed dry or submerged, while the SEG range of grinder pumps is ideal for pressurised sewage systems and is capable of continuous operation when fully submerged. Innovative Grundfos solutions, such as wastewater pumps with AutoAdapt functionality, simplify pump pit management and reduce costs, eliminating 75% of all service calls and reducing installation and commissioning costs by 50%.
The Grundfos series of level controllers offers highly reliable monitoring and control for up to six pumps, and can work together with motor protection and frequency converters. A comprehensive range of sensor accessories – such as level, flow and temperature sensors – ensures that you have the data required for your pumps’ control system.
Dedicated Controls for pumping stations has anti-clogging functionality built-in. The “flush and reverse” function prevents clogging caused by the increasing amounts of the fibrous component in sewage today. The anti-clogging function acts on any abnormal events to stop pumps from blocking, avoiding costly downtime.
Control and monitoring systems increase the potential for improving both efficiency and reliability. Grundfos supplies pump starters and external variable speed drives (Grundfos CUE), Dedicated Controls for easy control of pump functionalities, and internet-based supervision (Grundfos Remote Management) with an easy-to-use SCADA interface.
Grundfos can supply the specialist expertise to help meet your performance objectives, from the initial identification of needs, to the selection, installation, operation, and maintenance of the pumping solution. Grundfos commissioning agreements ensure correct installation and service agreements cover all eventualities, from routine maintenance to spare parts and pump audits, for optimal operation.
