Municipal wastewater transport
Pumps are at the heart of many wastewater utility applications, transporting wastewater and operating critical processes. Grundfos’ range of grinders, submersible sewage pumps, and control panels are designed to stand up to the toughest applications, reduce energy consumption and allow for simple maintenance.
Wastewater Solutions with Best-In-Class Highest Hydraulic Efficiency & Non-Clogging Capabilities
Dependable, energy-efficient solutions for wastewater pumping stations and networks are essential for any municipality. Grundfos offers a range of durable submersible solid handling pumps (from 1 to 650 hp) with industry-leading efficiency, SEG grinders, and control and monitoring solutions.
Our products include patented technologies such as the S-tube impeller, which has an innovative design that reduces clogging from rags and other fibrous materials. Other features include the MKII hydraulic, which improves fiber handling and wear resistance of the sealing system, and Smart Trim System, which allows for simple in-house service, reducing operation costs. For retrofit applications, we have a complete line of rail adapters, which make the installation of our solutions efficient and straightforward. We also supply prefabricated pumping stations complete with pumps, controls, valves, and pipes. When retrofitting existing pumping stations, we ensure a complete solution with easy installation and low downtime during the process.
Submersible Wastewater Pumps & Controls for Modern Demands
Grundfos’ range of grinders, submersible wastewater pumps (from 1 to 42 hp) and control panels are designed to stand up to the toughest applications, reduce energy consumption and allow for simple maintenance. See why our solutions are different.
Learn how Harris County Reduced Pump Clogging by 90%
Four SE submersible pumps were used by Harris County, Texas in a retrofit application. Thanks to the SE’s S-Tube impeller, the county was able to reduce clogging by 90%. Other advanced features like the pump's Smart Trim System allowed the equipment to be serviced in-house, lowering maintenance costs by 61% and ensuring the pump was always running at maximum efficiency.

Reduce Clogs & Optimize Pump Efficiency with the S-TUBE® Impeller
Learn how the innovative, non-clogging capabilities of our S-TUBE® impeller prevent rags and fibrous materials from getting stuck in the volute. The S-tube also delivers greater hydraulic efficiency when compared to any other type of wastewater impeller, resulting in the lowest life cycle cost, trouble-free operation, and best-in-class non-clogging capabilities.
We’re Experts on Pump Controls
A drive can help lower energy consumption at wastewater pumping stations, but a drive on its own is not enough. For an optimized system, you also need an intelligent and complete wastewater control and monitoring solution.
The Grundfos CU 362 (Dedicated Controls), was developed specifically for network pumping stations and allows for system measurement and calculation, and integration with other monitoring, control, and energy optimizing equipment.
2-Pole VS. 4-Pole Motors for Submersible Solids Handling Pumps
New technologies have altered how we view mechanical and hydraulic challenges. Historically, in the United States, there has been a broad tendency to specify 4-pole nominal 1750 rpm motors for use on submersible solids handling pumps, however, this approach is changing. Many engineers now prefer 2-pole motors for lower flow/higher head applications. Learn about the factors you should consider when selecting a motor type for your application.
