Grundfos has launched its distributed pumping system in Asia, which aims to help air-conditioning systems consume up to 50% less energy than conventional methods.

Rising temperatures across the world have highlighted the need for cooling in cities without overburdening urban power grids. Conventional systems often over-pump to compensate for discrepancies between the chilled water supply and return temperatures and run at constant speed and pressure regardless of fluctuating cooling demands. This results in high energy consumption which ultimately contributes to greater carbon emissions.

Grundfos’ distributed pumping system can regulate the water flow based on feedback from temperature sensors, meeting the exact requirements of each building and intelligently controlling energy consumption by always delivering the right flow at all times.

This new approach to optimum water distribution is made possible by Grundfos’ MAGNA3 and TPE3 pumps. Both ranges feature compact, intelligent circulator pumps fitted with built-in sensors, variable speed drive, controller and communication module, and the latest IE5 motors. TPE3 is a dry-runner, vertical, in-line pump used as the primary pumps, while MAGNA3 is a wet-runner circulator used as the secondary pumps.
