Lowara Smart Pumps Cut Water Supply and HVAC Costs for Commercial Buildings

Lowara pumps are viewed by many as the finest clean water supply pumps in the world. Their water pumps and centrifugal pumps are made of AISI 304 and AISI 316 stainless steel. This makes them appropriate for the level of sanitation required of clean water supply pumps and also makes them less prone to wear and tear.

The management of Lowara Pumps has never been a group that rested on their laurels, however. They put a lot of time and effort into research, development and improvement of their products. This has kept them on the forefront of innovation throughout their tenure as a pump manufacturer.

Lowara Pumps Cut Water Supply and HVAC Costs for Commercial Buildings

Lowara Smart Pumps

The latest Lowara innovation is a line of smart pumps that are designed for water supply and HVAC applications, mostly in commercial buildings. The new Lowara Smart Pump range will feature their proprietary IE5 motors. These IE5 motors outperform the IE3 requirements that are currently the industry standard.

According to Lowara representative Giorgio Sabbatini, the global building sector is placing a high priority on improving HVAC efficiency in their commercial buildings. This helps reduce operational costs and overall consumption of power

The Lowara Smart Pump range features variable speed drive motors which make both water supply and HVAC pumps more efficient. This helps reduce power consumption and CO2 emissions. With a “carbon tax” looming in the future, Lowara Smart Pumps could save building owners even more money down the road.

Plug and Play

The Lowara Smart Pump range is designed to be a plug-and-play system. It is easy to install and also easy to retrofit. They contain an embedded electric drive that increases the working area of the pumps. This will greatly enhance system performance and maximize flexibility.

Lowara Smart Pumps can provide up to 1.5 kW of power in single phase input and offer the capability of linking three pumps in tandem.

A Quick Guide to Clean Water Pumps

Clean water pumps are somewhat unique in that they need to be made of the right materials and configured in a way that they keep clean water clean. Usually, they are centrifugal pumps that are made with stainless steel parts. Stainless steel is used in sanitary applications because it is a “clean” material that never contaminates water that flows through it. However, clean water pumps can also be made with bronze, plastic, aluminium or cast iron.

A Quick Guide to Clean Water Pumps

There are many different designs for clean water pumps. They can also be built into “booster systems,” where multiple pumps are used to increase pressure for use in large buildings and residences such as apartment buildings, hotels and office buildings.

Our centrifugal pumps are of the highest quality. They usually stay primed while they are working. They tend to be sanitary and resilient, making for long life cycles. Here’s a quick look at three different kinds of clean water pumps.

Single Stage Centrifugal Pumps

We have six different series of single stage centrifugal pumps, covering many different applications. The BG series are simple, self-priming pumps used mainly for drinking water. The FH series are compliant with EN733-DIN 24255. They are made of cast iron and ASI 316 stainless steel. They can be used for hot, cold and moderately aggressive liquids.

Multi-Stage Centrifugal Pumps

We carry six different series of multi-stage centrifugal pumps. They are made to different specifications for a wide variety of uses: domestic, industrial and critical suction applications.

Booster Pumps

The GEN series is specifically for firefighting. The GSD 20, GSD 30 and GHV series are used for commercial and industrial use in sets of two, three or four pumps. They are designed for intermittent supply powered by electric motors.

How Water Pumps are Supplying Renewable Energy in WA

A lot of Australians don’t notice water pumps until there is an emergency. Either their water pumps malfunction or they need a pump to help empty water from their homes. Here is a great use for water pumps: supplying electricity to homes in WA.

The project is called the Perth Wave Energy Project and is located on Garden Island, Australia’s largest Naval Base. Remote islands and defense bases usually rely on fossil fuels to provide power at great cost to the Government. The Perth Wave Energy Project harnesses the power of waves in the ocean to provide power.

Water Pumps are Supplying Renewable Energy in WA

The technology is called CETO after the Greek ocean goddess. It consists of a buoy which is fully submerged in the ocean and tethered to a pump located on the seabed. The buoy is called a “Buoyant Activator” or “BA.” The CETO oscillates with the rhythm of the waves in the ocean. That transfers energy through a marine grade rope called a tether.

The tether causes the pump to expand and contract. The pump creates pressure which is used to send fluid through a pipeline to the shore. That fluid and its pressure are used to operate a hydroelectric power plant. After the pressure in the water is used up, the water flows back to the ocean.

This not only produces power, but can also produce desalinated water when the high pressure water is directed into a reverse osmosis desalination plant. This eliminates the need for pumps that use fossil fuels.

The end result: clean, renewable energy.

Does Your Water Pump Need Repair or Servicing?

If you have a water pump that needs servicing or repair, we can take care of it for you at Pump Solutions Australasia. We can repair all pumps, from the smallest submersible pumps to the largest industrial or wastewater pumps. So, how do you know if your pump does need to be repaired or serviced? There are too many to count.

Water Pump Need Repair or Servicing

How to Detect Pump Problems

Even the smallest departure from normal service can become a big problem if it isn’t fixed. For example, if your pump keeps tripping the circuit breaker, it is a sign that it has already broken down to a point of being inefficient and drawing too much power. If your pump has any leakage, it should be addressed immediately.

If a pump becomes noisy to a point of “noise pollution,” it means there is a serious problem. If you allow a pump to get to a point where it stops working, repairs will probably be more expensive than if you had addressed them earlier. This can also cause a lot more downtime than routine maintenance and servicing would have.

A silent pump that doesn’t work may be an interruption in the power supply. A pump that buzzes when it is turned on can be an indication of a break somewhere within the motor.

Most pumps are in two stages. There is an impeller or similar mechanism that moves the fluids. It is attached to a motor that supplies the power. Either of those can become faulty if not maintained and monitored on a regular basis.
