Pivot pressure boosting
Using traditional energy sources to pump water in remote areas or in large acreages can be impossible or expensive. A renewable energy-powered water supply delivers unmatched flexibility and reliability.
Durable and efficient solutions for pivot irrigation
Pivot sprinkler systems are a common solution used for agricultural irrigation. These systems are normally designed to apply water over large surface areas at a pace that is slower than the soil’s infiltration rate. This reduces water pooling and loss due to evaporation and ensures maximum water absorption. Grundfos offers a complete range of submersible and surface water pump systems to meet the flow requirements when supplying water to pivot systems.
The 100% stainless-steel submersible SP pump is a great choice for systems supplied by wells – pump diameter ranges from 3” to 10” with AISI 304 (standard), 316, or 904 stainless steel options available for challenging well environments. If an efficient and intelligent above-ground solution is desired, we offer the vertical multi-stage CR pump range and pre-built systems. These solutions offer highly customisable controls and monitoring accessories to reduce operating costs and prevent costly breakdowns.
The Grundfos CUE variable frequency drive will adjust the speed of the motor up and down to meet the required pressure and/or flow required. This protects against the risk of pipe burst, minimises leakage losses and keeps energy costs down. If end-gun boosters are used as part of the system, our CUE will help to ensure proper pressure, flow and irrigation uniformity across the pivot. Complete any system with our line of advanced digital dosing pumps for fertigation and chemigation needs.
