Demand Driven Distribution
While demand for clean and safe drinking water increases all over the world, water leakage presents another challenge. In many cities, that leakage is severe. For instance in London, 1,000 million litres of clean water are lost every day. Other cities have recorded water losses of up to 70% of water pumped.
Relieving water and financial pressure
Through a process called Demand Driven Distribution, Grundfos MPC Controller addresses the issue in two areas. Firstly, it can considerably reduce surplus water pressure in pipes and secondly, lower the risk of water hammer, which is a primary cause of new holes. This multi-pump solution operates at proportional pressure and this ensures flow is supplied precisely as needed and at the pressure required.
The MPC Controller works with all types of pumps. And, as well as delivering significant water leakage savings, its high-efficiency motors can also markedly reduce energy consumption.
