Grundfos supplies ATEX-approved pumps for every ethanol requirement and handles the mash pumping, fermentation, distillation and evaporation processes in ethanol production. Ethanol distillation involves a high explosive risk and risk of cavitation in the pump. Grundfos ensures continuous flow by offering stainless steel variants that can cope with the varying liquid composition during the distillation process. Grundfos also supplies pumps for the liquid that results from the various evaporation steps in the distillation process, ending with Dried Distillers Grain (DDG).

Grundfos NBG/NKG end-suction pumps are ideal for pumping alcohol and aggressive chemicals, and fully comply with ISO2858 standards. The CR multistage pump is also perfect for such applications and is available in a number of stainless steel variants.

SMART Digital (DDA, DDC and DDE) diaphragm dosing pumps offer modularity, simplicity and flow intelligence and contribute to keeping life cycle costs low. In addition, Grundfos supplies motor-driven (DMX) diaphragm dosing pumps, oscillating positive displacement pumps (DMH), precision dosing (DDI) pumps, and large-volume (DME) dosing pumps for adding chemicals.

The Grundfos Product Center helps you ensure that the pump selected matches the liquid to be pumped.
