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.

Grundfos Pumps

Grundfos Pumps is another of our most trusted pump manufacturers. They are currently the largest pump manufacturer in the world. Their headquarters are in Denmark and they employ more than 18,000 worldwide. Each year, the produce more than 12 million pumps. Their main focus is centrifugal pumps, submersible pumps and circulator pumps.

Grundfos is also a prolific manufacturer of electric motors. Some of these are for their own products, but they also produce electric motors separate from their pumps. They also manufacture controls and various other electronic pieces for pumps and pump-related systems.

Brief History of Grundfos Pumps

Grundfos was established in 1945 in Bjerringbro by the late Poul Due Jensen. When originally established, they were known as “The Bjerringbro Die-Casting and Machine Factory.” They would change names many times until 1967 when they decided upon the name Grundfos.

Before Mr Jensen died, he set up the Poul Due Jensen Foundation to run Grundfos. The Foundation owns 86% of Grundfos. The Jensen family owns 12% and the remaining 2% is owned by the employees.

The foundation’s only reason for existence is to foster the growth and sustainability of Grundfos. It runs as a non-profit, with all capital and profits being reinvested into the foundation. We know of maybe two other pump manufacturers in the world who spend as much money on research and development as Grundfos does.

Applications for Grundfos Pumps

Grundfos Pumps for Irrigation

Grundfos Pumps are extremely popular, especially in Australia. They are used for numerous gas, oil and mining applications. A lot of Grundfos Pumps end up in Western Australia and Queensland. The most popular pumps are SP submersible borehole pumps, booster sets, dosing pumps, wastewater pumps and end suction pumps.

Grundfos circulator pumps are used for heating and cooling in office buildings, homes and private residences. Grundfos also have pumps for the sewage, irrigation, water supply, pressure boosting, dosing, dewatering, fire fighting, solar pumping applications.

Centrifugal Pump Applications

The centrifugal pump is designed for high efficiency and doesn’t consume a lot of power. However, it can’t be used for everything. There are some applications in which it is the best choice, but many in which it isn’t appropriate. It is important to know the difference. Here are some facts about centrifugal pumps and some of the industries in which they are used.

How a Centrifugal Pump Works

A centrifugal pump has a simple design: an impeller spinning inside of a casing. This converts rotational energy into centrifugal force by forcing liquid into the centre of the impeller and propelling it out of the impeller channel and then into the volute chamber. A portion of that force is converted into pressure because there is less space in the casing.

Centrifugal pumps provide, as mentioned above, high efficiency with low power usage. In some larger buildings, multiple centrifugal pumps are used in series, making the low power usage crucial. Because their design is so simple, centrifugal pumps require minimal maintenance and last longer than many other varieties.

Centrifugal Pump Applications - Pump Solutions Australasia

Centrifugal pumps are used for many applications, including water supply for large buildings, as supply pumps and as booster pumps. They are also used in the dairy, food, beverage and light chemical industries. They are efficient for pumping slurries and sewage due to their design. They are also used for heating and cooling systems and in fire protection systems.

At Pump Solutions Australasia, we import centrifugal pumps from the best manufacturers in the world, including Grundfos, Speck Pumpen, Lowara, Calpeda and Gorman Rupp.

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.
