Improve pressure control in the heat network
In district heating networks, large centralised pumps need to generate high pressure in order to deliver necessary flow to large parts of the grid, and at the same time satisfy the minimum pressure requirement at critical points. This presents a problem of excessive pressure close to main pumps and often too low pressure in other parts of the grid, especially where there is no real-time pressure feedback.
iGRID Pressure Zone makes it possible to adapt the pressure according to the actual demands in the network. By installing pumps that are located at central points in the system, pressure is boosted at points where it is actually needed.
Distributing pressure based on actual demands offers great benefits:
- Best comfort for all customers in the grid
- Reduced pressure loss in the main grid by adding pressure precisely where needed
- Better control and performance of the whole system
- Reduced pumping energy costs
- Lower system pressure rating (more choice of lower pressure components)
- Lower risk of leakages
Improve pressure control in the district heating network
Expansions and changes in demand are daily challenges in district heating. iGRID Pressure Zone is a prefabricated solution that adds the exact pressure required in a decentralised way. In this manner, it is possible to achieve a more even pressure distribution in the heat network.
