How to design a Distributed Pumping system

Designing your Distributed Pumping system is a breeze with Grundfos. Find out below what to consider when sketching out your system, or take the pressure off altogether – contact our dedicated experts for comprehensive design services and a calculation of the savings you’ll make.

Getting started

Your HVAC system requires a hydraulic headloss calculation to ensure all distributing pumps deliver the correct head and flow. Additionally, selecting the right pumps secures optimal efficiency in all areas.

The flow balancing between your primary loop and the secondary loop reduces the need for large primary pumps, so selecting the right set of primary pumps is equally important.

To get things done in the most efficient and effective way, you’ll need your project’s hydronic details such as:

  • Equipment schedules for AHU, Chillers, FCU, PAHU etc.
  • Pipe schematic
  • Riser diagram

ECADEMY: The MAGNA3 circulator pump

The MAGNA3 circulator is a highly advanced canned rotor pump intended for large commercial buildings such as hospitals and schools.

The intelligent pump ensures optimum flow and pressure for each terminal unit while continuously keeping the system in balance, based on input from the sensors.
