NKE/NKGE pumps are long-coupled pumps equipped with a motor with built-in frequency converter
Grundfos end-suction pumps are multi-purpose pumps suitable for a variety of different applications demanding reliable and cost-efficient supply. End-suction pumps are used in five main fields of applications: Water supply, industrial pressure boosting, industrial liquid transfer, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning), and irrigation.
NKE/NKGE pumps are long-coupled pumps equipped with a motor with built-in frequency converter and the necessary application software to achieve an all-in-one solution enabling electronic speed control. Electronic speed control enables continuously variable control of motor speed which again enables adaptation of the performance to a given requirement.
The NKE pump lives up to the EN733 standard and the NKGE pumps lives up to the ISO2858 standard. The range for motors with built-in frequency converter goes up to 22 kW.
Although NBE/NBGE pumps are more compact and therefore fit into confined spaces, the NKE/NKGE end-suction pumps with a spacer coupling are easier to service.
Main product characteristics
- Spacer coupling making service possible without dismantling the motor from the base plate
- Optimised hydraulics in housing and impeller = unimpeded liquid flow
- O-ring seal between pump housing and cover = no risk of leakage
- Housing, impeller and wear ring in different materials = improved corrosion resistance, no sticking elements
- Closed bal bearings = correct lubrication, no dust instruction
- Back pull-out design for easy dismantling in case of service
- Pump is electro coated to increase corrosion resistance
- Available with eff1 motors
- Available in a number of shaft seal and material variants
- PN 10 and 16 bar.
- Temperature up to 140C
- Energy saving
