Applications for Grundfos CR Series Centrifugal Pumps

The applications for CR Series pumps are nearly infinite, but there are some applications in which they are very popular. These include: water supply & pressure boosting in commercial/residential/industrial/mining/health sectors, pumping of aggressive fluids (acid or alkaline), seawater systems, washing and cleaning systems, water processing systems, ultrafiltration systems, swimming pools and reverse osmosis systems.

Some more specific applications: mining, steam boiler feed, chemical processes, industrial processes, mineral oils, pharmaceutical industries, petrochemical industries, distilling plants, refineries, paint industries. They can be used to cool data processing equipment, medical equipment, laser equipment and industrial freezing and cooling processes. They can control temperature for chemical processing, oil processing and moulding and casting tools..

They are used for hygienic applications in biotechnical industries, pharmaceutical industries, chemical processes and food and beverage.

Special installations can be arranged for ships, fire fighting, mobile applications, remote areas, earthquake prone areas, deep well plumbing and places with limited installation space.

Grundfos Vertical Multistage Pumps

We import a wide range of pumps into Australia from some of the best pump manufacturers in the world. One of those is Grundfos. We would like to tell you about Grundfos Vertical Multistage Pumps.

Grundfos CRI, and CRN Vertical Multistage Pumps

The CRI and CRN series of Grundfos pumps are vertical multistage pumps. The feature and inline design that makes them appropriate for a specific set of circumstances: a one-pipe, horizontal system in which the discharge and suction ports have identical pipe dimensions and are located in the same horizontal plane. This design allows the pipe work and pump design to exist in a more compact space.

Grundfos Pumps - Vertical Multistage


The pressure and flow demands of the media being moved determine how many stages and what pump sizes you will need for the job. Grundfos CRI and CRN pumps are used for many applications, including the pumping of chemicals and the pumping of potable water. This versatility allows these Grundfos pumps to be used in a wide variety of applications in which the material and pump performance must be perfectly matched.

Grundfos CRI & CRN Series pumps contain two basic components: the pump and the motor. Grundfos uses heavy duty Grundfos motors for these pumps that are specific for each individual pump.

The pump unit features a top, an outer sleeve, connectors and other parts that are built to optimise hydraulics. The entire CR series is available in different materials specific to the media for which they will be used.

Grundfos CR Pumps: an Overview

The CR pump is a vertical multistage centrifugal pump that is non self-priming. Each CR pump consists of a pump head and a base. The outer sleeve and the chamber stack are connected between the base and the pump head by staybolts. The discharge and suction ports are on the same level or “inline,” connected to the base. The shafts are mechanically sealed by a maintenance-free cartridge.

All of the pumps are powered by standard Grundfos C Face, NEMA, 2-pole, heavy duty motors. Each pump has a specified motor.

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.
