The launch commemorates 50 years of the CR’s pioneering pump technology
Grundfos, the world leader in pumps and water solutions, today announced the launch of its new generation of large CR pumps in India. Designed with world class efficiency upgrades to provide customers with improved flow performance and pump pressure, the range of CR 185, 215 and 255 caters to a wide range of applications water supply, water treatment and almost all industrial solutions – including those for high-pressure, hot, dangerous, flammable, and aggressive liquids.
Industrial operations across different sectors, from automotive manufacturing to food and beverage processing can be water and energy intensive. Industries in India also account for about 56% of total energy consumption of the country1. The level of industrial energy and water efficiency varies widely across the country. With the need for a constant flow of large quantities of water while simultaneously being energy efficient, Grundfos’ new CR range is the most efficient way of handling these production process.
This new large range of CRs bring an increased maximum water flow of up to 320 m3/h and has been designed for maximum energy efficiency and performance across the board. With its optimized hydraulic design – from impeller and guide vanes to inlet, discharge port, sleeve and diffuser – the new generation of Grundfos CR offers world class energy efficiency. Due to its small footprint, it is much easier and less costly to install than other pump designs. The new generation includes even more options such as predictive monitoring, higher pressure, lower NPSH and the use of standard motors.
The improved shaft seal design makes it apt for high pressure and hot liquid operations in industries. The pumps are also efficient in handling difficult liquids for industries such as chemical and petrochemical, refineries, and distilling plants. These pumps are also ideal for industrial cooling processes.
Commenting on this launch, Burak Gürkan, Senior Regional Sales Director, Industry – IMEA, Grundfos said, “Grundfos’ range of CR pumps are the world’s first vertical multistage centrifugal inline pumps, and are since its inception, over 3.5 million CR pumps now serve industries around the globe. We are always striving towards moving the limits with our products and solutions. With the launch of the new large CR range, we want to provide our customers more reliability, options and cost-efficient solutions.”
Shankar Rajaram, Area Sales Director – Industry, INDO Region, Grundfos said, “With this launch, Grundfos is paving the way for a new era of intelligent solutions for efficient water and energy management across industrial processes in India. The CR range has proven to be an ideal solution for industries globally and we are excited to introduce such an innovative solution to our customers in the country.”
Key benefits of the Grundfos CR pump range include:
- More energy-efficient. With its optimised hydraulic design – from impeller and guide vanes to inlet, discharge port, sleeve, and diffuser – the new generation of Grundfos CR offers world-class energy efficiency.
- More cost-efficient. With power consumption responsible for 90% of a product’s life cycle cost, greater energy efficiency means greater cost savings. Due to its small footprint, the CR pumps are also much easier and less costly to install than other pump designs.
- More reliable. The new generation of large CR pumps has been made even more robust than its forerunners through use of state-of-the-art technology in simulation-design, materials, testing and production. CR pumps are also equipped with predictive monitoring, tracking pump health 24/7 and effectively alerts users to possible process failures, reducing unnecessary and costly downtime and also eliminating the need for regular servicing.
- More options. The new generation adds even more options to what was already the most modular pump programme in the world. With millions of possible variants in the CR range alone, users can always build a Grundfos CR pump to match their exact specification – whatever the application.
