Integrated Close-Coupled, Inline Design
The Grundfos line of VLC closed-coupled, single stage, inline pump include an integrated CUE drive (Grundfos variable frequency drive) and control capabilities are part of the family of pumps, which are better engineered to increase efficiency and reduce radial loads. Grundfos pumps are engineered for both energy savings and simplicity from installation to maintenance. The Grundfos VLC offers a 16 step start-up and includes a spacer coupling that allows easy replacement of the mechanical seal without removing the motor and drive.
Lifetime Alignment from Grundfos Saves You Money
Did you know that only 7% of measured machines fall within acceptable alignment tolerances, leaving 93% of machines experiencing problems caused by misalignment, including:
- Increased energy consumption: As little as a 1.25mm offset can cause an 8% increase in energy consumption.
- Premature seal and bearing failure: Even just a 0.05mm offset reduces the seal wear life by 90%.
That is why Grundfos has engineered pumps like this to include a Lifetime Alignment Guarantee which will save you money and time over the lifetime of equipment.

We’re designing smarter HVAC pumping solutions that use data to control, optimize and adapt your entire system, without your intervention. And we’re delivering it in a complete, simplified setup that saves you time and energy. Our approach is simple with:
See Why Sensors Keep You In the Zone
Sensors get a bad rap. Though they’re proven to be the best way to collect accurate data, they can be a pain to install, especially remotely. Grundfos has explored the sensor issue from every angle, including using no sensors at all. We learned that you really do need sensors to deliver real system data to get the most reliable control and maintain design intent. That’s why we have invested heavily in our sensor technology. We integrate state-of-the-art sensors directly into the pump to give you all the benefits with none of the headaches. Learn how Grundfos keeps you in the zone.
