Grundfos UPML, UPMXL and SOLAR PML circulators must be disposed of according to local regulations by using a public or private waste collection service.
- Safety related to materials used
There is no risk to people during the disassembly process posed by the materials used in the product.
Disassembly of the Product
The main materials of the components are:
- Cast Iron
- Electronic components
- Composite materials
and can therefore be recycled to a large extent – depending on the national possibilities for recycling.
The pump is assembled by using screws and bolts and can be disassembled with standard tools. There are no loose parts inside the motor.
