Improve pressure in your grid
In district heating grids, large centralised pumps need to generate high pressure in order to deliver necessary flow to large parts of the grid, and at the same time satisfy the minimum pressure requirement at critical points. This presents a problem of excessive pressure close to main pumps and often too low pressure in other parts of the grid, especially where there is no real-time pressure feedback.
Distribute pressure based on actual demand
The iGRID Pressure Zone makes it possible to customise the pressure according to the actual demands in the grid. Hence, too high pressure level from the pumps can be avoided while the overall pressure in the grid is substantially reduced.
Consequently, the pressure class for pipes and other components used in the grid is lowered while the lifetime of installations is extended. Moreover, the friction loss inside the pipes is reduced and the risk of leakages is minimised.
Improve pressure control and reduce costs
The iGRID Pressure Zone together with iGRID Measure Points and/or iGRID Bypasses, makes it possible to implement demand-driven control based on real-time data in critical parts of the grid. This ensures a supply of exactly the differential pressure needed without adding the typical safety margin. Overall, your pump energy costs will be reduced!
A plug’n’pump solution customized according to your needs
The iGRID Pressure Zone is a plug’n’pump solution, built in a modular way, which can be delivered in a pit under the ground, in a cabinet above the ground or on a skid to be placed in a technical room. The iGRID Pressure Zone comes with the following pre-assembled components as standard:
• Insulated inlet and outlet connection pipes
• Isolating valves
• Non-return valves (multiple pump version)
• Pump (or pumps) including control unit
• Pressure sensors (single point sensors)
