Pumping System: Grundfos
The Grundfos Hydro MPC BoosterpaQ® is a fully-integrated and compact pressure-boosting system that offers multiple configurations — with up to six pumps in parallel — to accommodate water supply systems, as well as industrial and irrigation applications.
The new CU 352 intuitive graphical interface controller makes the system user-friendly, while ensuring efficient operation, according to the company. Using actual pump-curve data, the intelligent CU 352 controller helps to optimize energy consumption by controlling/staging the number of pumps in operation, as well as the speed of the individual pumps, in order to continually adjust the performance of the system to variations in demand.
An intuitive color screen helps to ensure easy operation, and the start-up wizard helps to facilitate commissioning. Rounding out the smart system, the controller communicates via the most common field-bus protocols and features a built-in Ethernet connection, enabling remote access via a web browser.
