Sedimentation is a physical water treatment process used to settle out suspended solids in water under the influence of gravity. One of the requirements for correct sedimentation is maintaining gentle fluid handling with a pump system that is designed to avoid contact between the sediment and vital pump parts, reducing wear and tear.
Grundfos can supply pump systems that match these demands, and in addition has a range of disinfection solutions that lead to an increase in the settling speed of suspended material and help raise water quality.
Maintaining gentle and controlled flows in sedimentation tanks and moving water to and from the tanks places many demands on a pumping solution. Grundfos pump systems range from huge split-case and mixed-flow pumps, where the focus is on moving water rather than added pressure to our highly successful vertical multistage centrifugal pump (CR) – and covering all performance requirements in between.
Grundfos can supply complete dosing pump systems for large or small volumes and based on different technologies for flocculation, disinfection, and pH adjustment. Moreover, the Grundfos range of electronic and electrochemical accessories offers complete control of your dosing and disinfection processes and can be seamlessly integrated into your system.
Water quality improvement with an efficient, economical system for dry-material preparation is increasingly used for water treatment. Grundfos can supply PLC-controlled, fully automatic systems to handle preparation and the reliable dosing of organic coagulants or poly-electrolytes.
Grundfos can supply the specialist expertise to help meet your performance objectives, from the initial identification of needs, to the selection, installation, operation, and maintenance of the pumping solution. Grundfos commissioning agreements ensure correct installation and service agreements cover all eventualities, from routine maintenance to spare parts and pump audits.
