Danfoss Drives are on show at the Water Equipment Show this week.

This year’s Water Equipment Show takes place on 16 May 16 at the International Centre, Telford, and Danfoss Drives will be exhibiting its drives for water and wastewater applications.

Products on show include the Danfoss VLTAQUA series of drives, which have dedicated features for water and wastewater applications and the Danfoss VACON 100 FLOW drives for pumping applications.

VLTAQUA Drives are designed for AC-motor-driven water and wastewater applications. Their design uses the Danfoss back channel cooling concept which reduces the need for external cooling by up to 90%. AQUA drives are supplied in single-phase versions with power ratings up to 37 kW and three-phase versions with ratings up to 2 MW.

The VACON100 FLOW drives include dedicated application menus for pump and other water segment applications, integrated two-zone PID control, and multi-motor control facilities provided as standard. They are available with power ratings from 0.55 kW to 800 kW.

The drives also include integrated frost protection, start and sleep boosting, soft pipe filling which runs pumps at low speed until the pipes are filled and an anti-ragging function that detects when a pump is blocked and initiates a user-defined cleaning sequence.
