Pumps and control systems for district heating systems such as district heating plants, transmission and distribution networks, substations, pump rooms and boiler rooms.
Improve efficiency and reduce costs with a district energy system
Pumps are the heart of any district energy system. They have a severe influence on how efficiently other individual components in a district energy system work. That is why pump selection is crucial when designing a district energy system. A district energy system is a flexible solution that effectively makes use of a variety of sustainable energy sources.
Accurately controlled circulation is key to user comfort and the general efficiency of the system. With variable frequency drive pumps, you get intelligent pump operations that always match system loads. That way, you are guaranteed maximum efficiency while your energy consumption is kept at a minimum. On top of that, there are plenty of optimisation opportunities, including real-time sensoring and temperature control.
Keeping a central utility plant or district HVAC system running reliably requires attention to detail. Grundfos can help with that. Pressure, flow and temperature are the three main parameters to consider, but water purity and pH-value also play a part in deciding the level of wear and tear in your pipes. However, these parameters can be controlled with a flow filter system and an effective water treatment system, both of which feature Grundfos pumps.
Big savings with Grundfos district energy
Approaching your heating and cooling with central utility plants has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions and heat losses while increasing consumer comfort. More industrial grade centralized plants offer the greatest savings and typically use of the latest equipment technologies energy from multiple sources. Additionally, these systems are typically able to harvest energy from multiple sources depending on the set-up (i.e., solar, wind, biofuel, etc.) And big savings for both the environment and the bottom line can be found by reusing byproducts. For instance, a campus that has its own power plant could reuse the heat byproduct to heat some of the buildings on the network.
