WATER BOOSTING: Grundfos water boosters in mobile washrooms serve as a respite for disaster management teams

THE SITUATION:

Managing through emergency and disaster is a tough challenge, especially when it involves a longer duration onsite. To address the basic hygiene and sanitary needs of rescue, disaster management and Law & Order Teams, Grundfos India in association with a renowned coach bodybuilder company, provided an exclusive pressure boosting solution for installation in the mobile bathroom with a shower and 3 toilets (WC & WB). The customer was in need of a compact pressure booster pump, that can run on the automobile’s battery or inverter supply, with low maintenance and low noise.

THE SOLUTION:

After analyzing the customer’s requirements, Grundfos recommended SCALA2 pressure booster pumps. Grundfos SCALA2 is very compact, resulting in a lesser footprint, easy to install & maintain, less noise and highly reliable. In this case, Grundfos SCALA2 runs on inverter - 100AH, tubular battery - 12V. The pumps consume less energy, have built-in dry run protection, and are VFD driven - pressure adjustment depending upon pressure drop from the washrooms.

THE OUTCOME:

Grundfos SCALA2 pressure booster with inverter and VFD driven capabilities provided the ideal sanitary solution to the customer. This enabled hygiene facilities for law and order/rescue teams posted at the site during challenging situations. Since it is a VFD driven pump, it runs at variable speed and water consumption is optimum (demand-based - no wastage of water). This is a significant contribution by Grundfos in achieving our SDG6 goal.
