contractors, engineers and building owners to “Demand More from
Your Building," Grundfos adds integrated pump motor and variable
frequency drive to significantly reduce power consumption and
better match demand in high-performance commercial building
The 2014 AHR Expo
sets the scene for Grundfos to introduce its broadly expanded
line of fully integrated, intelligent pumping systems. Ideally
suited for new commercial HVAC/R applications and deep
retrofits, the line now features the MLE variable speed motor in
ranges from 3 to 30 horsepower (HP) for building services.
The Grundfos MLE variable
speed motor is now available in many fully integrated,
intelligent pumping systems ideally suited for commercial HVAC/R
applications in ranges from 3 to 30 HP.
the company will make the unified MLE motor and variable
frequency drive (VFD) available in multiple models, ranging
from end-suction to inline to split-case pumping solutions.
decades, Grundfos has manufactured its own MLE motors to
match its energy optimized, high performing pumps. Now
Grundfos is expanding that effort to include motors sizes
that are well suited to HVAC/R applications.
These advanced Grundfos products provide a systems approach,
which, through intelligent technology, adapts precisely to
current demand to deliver performance, energy efficiency and
reliability. The integrated, energy‐optimized MLE system
consists of a sensor, system controller, VFD drive and
standard asynchronous motor all in one.
“It’s time to demand more from your building,” said Dennis
Wierzbicki, president of Grundfos U.S. Sales. “Our expanded
integrated pump systems help building managers do just that
by providing a state-of-the-art system approach that
increases system efficiency performance while reducing
energy and life cycle costs.The intelligent MLE motor system
greatly simplifies pump commissioning and startup for each
of the models where it is offered. As a pioneer of
innovative pumping solutions, Grundfos is dedicated to
developing the highest quality pumps and pumping systems
while at the same time contributing to a better quality of
life and a healthier environment.”
Efficiency and Sustainability
Grundfos constantly strives to make its pumps even more
efficient and energy saving. Using state-of-the-art
technology and cutting-edge design, as demonstrated in the
MLE design, Grundfos pumping solutions meet − and often
surpass − virtually all customer requirements for
efficiency, reliability, and cost effectiveness.
“Today’s pumps need to be smart,” said Steve Schmitz,
Grundfos director of business development for Commercial
Building Systems. “The key to maximum performance efficiency
is widely recognized as optimising the whole building system
with intelligent pumps. Over half of the buildings that will
exist in 2050 are already here, and the new Grundfos
intelligent system solutions pumps meet that urgent need
All parts of Grundfos systems solutions are specifically
developed to guarantee reliable functionality, communication
and adaptability specific to system demands. This, in turn,
drives down the total cost of the pump system, while
increasing efficient performance.
