A big day for a new, huge pump solution

2 July 2018 was a big day in many ways. It was the day, when Grundfos for the first time in more than fifteen years introduced a new CR program based on brand new technology and design. And on an entirely new scale, both physically and performance-wise.

“This is a thorough improvement, which will position us in the forefront of the market for this type of pump again” says Morten Gylling. He is the Director of the Global Multi Stage Program and has been working with CR pumps for 25 years.

While customers in Europe and the Unites States already have the possibility to buy the new pumps, potential buyers from the rest of the world will have to keep patient until the beginning of September. By then, however, they can also look forward to large scale savings in terms of both energy consumption and money.

“The new pumps are far more energy efficient than the ones they replace and due to their considerable size and strong motors, customers will experience remarkable savings in terms of both energy consumption and money,” says Morten Gylling.

New opportunities
Looking ahead, customers have more advantages in prospect. Around New Year, CR pumps in yet unseen dimensions will be ready for them. The biggest will be able to double both pressure and flow compared to previous models.

“This will pave the way for us, because, for the first time, we can meet the customers’ demands for large pumps that can be used among other things for reverse osmosis in water treatment plants, water works and even tall buildings,” says Morten Gylling.
