AQpure water treatment system producing drinking water
Grundfos AQpure is an ultrafiltration-based water treatment system optimised for producing drinking water in local communities, also in remote areas where establishing a stable, reliable and affordable production of drinking water from lakes and rivers can be extremely challenging.
Each Grundfos AQpure system produces drinking water by filtering bacteria, viruses and particles from the raw water source.
Grundfos AQpure is built on a modular concept allowing for customisation of each AQpure system to the specific raw water quality at the site. This is done by following 3 steps:
- Step 1: Identify which of the four water categories best characterises your raw water using the classification scheme
- Step 2: Configure your AQpure water treatment system from 11 standardised combinations using the product configuration scheme
- Step 3: Add any optional modules to match specific requirements of your site and raw water quality
Grundfos AQpure can operate as a stand-alone water treatment system or combined with Grundfos AQtap water dispensers in water kiosk applications. The water treatment system can also be used in apartment buildings, resorts and industries.

- Easy installation
Does a distributed pumping solution require hydraulic balancing?
No. Because we use small circulators as coil pumps to supply chilled water to each terminal unit (ie. Air handling unit), your entire building will be perfectly balanced at any load.
This also simplifies the design phase, as it is no longer necessary to determine the critical pressure point / index loop when doing the HVAC design. With distributed pumping, your whole system becomes decoupled and each pump is sized to deliver just the right flow.
How is the Capital investment compared to a conventional system with valves?
Because a Grundfos Distributed Pumping system is replacing the valves with coil pumps and reduces the kW size of primary pumps, the Capital Investment will either be the same as a conventional system or around 20% more expensive, depending on the choice of valves in the conventional design.
But the commissioning efforts needed for a distributed pumping solution, will be much less, since there is no need for hydraulic balancing or determination of Set Points (ei. Constant ...
How reliant is a distributed pumping system compared to a conventional system?
Canned-rotor type of circulates have been manufactured by Grundfos since 1959 and integrated speed drives was introduced in 1991, so the design is incredibly reliable and well tested. The current version of MAGNA3 was realeased in 2012 and more than 1 millions units have been sold worldwide for mixed applications.
The expected lifetime of a MAGNA3 is 10 years, but the pump can easily operate longer than this, and is more than able to match the reliance of any type of control valve....
