Grundfos supplies pumps and controls for the entire water distribution system, including main and local pumping stations. Market-leading pump optimisation and pressure control solutions increase pump and system efficiency, ensure correct water pressure at the consumer, and high reliability and intelligent surveillance of the water distribution system.
Pressure management is essential to effective leakage management. With Grundfos Demand Driven Distribution, pumps, intelligent components and system surveillance are packaged to build unique pressure management solutions that minimise water losses, reduce energy consumption and minimise operational costs for leaks and pipe maintenance.
The Demand Driven Distribution controller connected to network pressure sensors via the GSM network allows control of the pumps in accordance with data logged on a daily basis via an adaptive control algorithm. The measured data are then used for adaptive control of the pumping station, keeping the pressure in the network at the desired value, without troublesome analysis and re-configurations of the system to maintain proper operation.
