What Makes Grundfos Pumps Special?

Grundfos pumps possess a number of characteristics that separate them from the field when it comes to sanitary pumps.


HyGenix is the Grundfos name for their design philosophy when producing sanitary pumps. It is proprietary, but we can reveal that it employs a number of unique manufacturing techniques that allow Grundfos to proudly proclaim that their pumps are the safest in the world for sanitary applications such as the food industry.

One of the biggest features of HyGenix is that Grundfos pumps are totally devoid of seams, edges, screw heads and dead-ends. This is important because those are the places where bacteria can collect and cause contamination in other pumps.


NOVAlobe is a process by which Grundfos can provide solutions which are appropriate for specific products. NOVAlobe is able to handle solids. The NOVAlobe shaft seal is located directly in the path of the flow of product in a forward position. This makes the seal more easily cleaned while improving seal lubrication.
