Irrigation starts with sourcing water for the crop from groundwater or surface water from a channel or storage pond. Pumps used at the water intake need to meet changing conditions above and below ground, which have an effect on the pressure and flow required from day to day and from season to season.
A pumping system must be able to deliver the right amount of pressure and flow at the nozzle. Traditionally, water has been distributed from the water source at low or constant pressure from pumps operating at single speed, where the simple solution is to oversize the pump. However, this is wasteful – of energy, water, and the of the farmer’s investment.
Grundfos can supply variable speed pumps that are able to adjust its head and flow to compensate for changes in water levels, reducing energy bills. If filtration is required at the water intake, intelligent pump controls ensure that reduced pressure at the nozzle does not happen over time.
