Grundfos, a global leader in water technology, and its primary owner the Grundfos Foundation announced a $65,000 donation to the American Red Cross of Central California – Central Valley Chapter in response to the recent wildfires that continue to have a devastating impact on communities in Central California.

“Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by these wildfires, some of whom must now start over,” said Antonio Rodrigues, Grundfos plant director. “This hits close to home, because it is our home. We want to help the community—our neighbors, friends and partners—who are affected by this disaster.”

Grundfos employs more than 290 employees at its manufacturing plant in Fresno, California. At the facility, the company manufactures pumps that serve customers in groundwater and irrigation, domestic heating and hot water recirculation, commercial buildings HVAC and plumbing, and industrial applications. To support production, the Fresno office houses engineering, supply chain, finance, service and IT.

The company was introduced to the American market in 1973 after its founder Poul Due Jensen had discovered a growing market for pumps in California, especially where they are essential for farms and vineyards.

On October 19, the Board of Directors of the Grundfos Foundation awarded 315,775 DKK ($50,000 USD) to the American Red Cross of Central California – Central Valley Chapter. Grundfos Americas has also awarded a $15,000 USD donation to the chapter.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the many victims of the wildfires. It is however heartwarming to see our colleagues in the U.S. exercising this level of compassion towards their fellow citizens. That is why we are also proud to support the Red Cross,” said Kim Nøhr Skibsted, executive director of the Grundfos Foundation.

As part of the local rebuilding efforts, Grundfos is creating a program that will provide a significant discount for a selection of its pump products to those that have lost water service due to the wildfires.

“Grundfos is committed to supporting the relief efforts for those who are being displaced or have lost homes, as well as those who are trying to save people, homes and property,” said Dieter Sauer, Grundfos Americas regional managing director. “We hope our donations encourage others to join in assisting those who have been affected.”

Grundfos Hydro MPC CME, pressure booster pumps, Grundfos, packaged pumping system for pressure boosting and HVAC applicationsGrundfos is launching the Hydro MPC CME, the newest member of the Hydro MPC platform. The compact, reliable and energy efficient packaged pumping system is ideal for pressure boosting and HVAC applications in apartments, large homes and multistory buildings.

“Our Grundfos engineering team has worked hard to expand our industry-leading Hydro MPC range to include the new Hydro MPC CME,” said Greg Bretz, vice president of commercial buildings for Grundfos. “This new system will provide all the benefits of our world-class CU 352 controller, but in a more compact system with a smaller footprint.”

The Hydro MPC CME system offers superior performance and industry-leading reliability. Key features include a performance range of max 330 gpm and max pressure 145 psi; efficiency-based pump sequencing; end of curve protection; check valve failure detection, and more. Additionally, a suction pressure transducer is included for dry-running protection.

The Grundfos Hydro MPC CME will be displayed for the first time at AHR Expo in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center from Feb. 3-5, 2020. Attendees can get a hands-on look at the Hydro MPC CME and other products and solutions, including the first end- suction pump with proportional pressure in Grundfos booth #3361.

Tech Talk to highlight pumps and considerations when dosing antimicrobials

Houston — Grundfos will showcase its innovative pumping solutions and debut a new wash and clean system for the food processing industry at the 2020 International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE).

At IPPE, held in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center from Jan. 28-30, attendees who visit booth #B7173 can speak with Grundfos product experts and interact with the latest in pumps and systems, including a fully operational peracetic acid dosing skid and the newly released Hydro HP.

Grundfos to Feature Dosing, Water Treatment and Washdown Solutions at IPPE 2020

One of the newest innovations from Grundfos, the Hydro HP is a high pressure clean and wash booster set that provides steady pressure from 5 gpm up to the system set point of 150, 250, 350 or 500 gpm. The Hydro HP is energy efficient, reliable and easy to maintain, offering customers full realization of ROI after the first few maintenance cycles. Attendees can see the new system first-hand at the booth.

“From the manufacturing of the drive, pump and motor to complete skids and packages, Grundfos provides a full range of solutions for processing plants,” said Jay Stellmacher, vice president of industry at Grundfos USA. “Industry-leading reliability and efficiency in all our products reduces maintenance and increases valuable uptime, providing cost savings and peace of mind for plant operators.”

For chemical dosing and water treatment needs, Grundfos’ booth will feature the accurate and reliable SMART Digital dosing pumps, as well as a Dosing Skid System (DSS) for peracetic acid applications featuring a Digital Instrumentation for Dosing (DID) measurement and monitoring system.

On Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 3:40 p.m., Jared Gabel, market development manager for water treatment at Grundfos USA, will present “Pump Features and Considerations When Dosing Peracetic Acid” on the Tech Talk stage in Hall B-B8648.

During his Tech Talk, Gabel will discuss how food processing plants can benefit from stepper motor technology paired with digital measurement and controls systems when feeding of peracetic acid. Gabel is an expert in dosing and disinfection who has trained industry professionals throughout North America on the functionality and applications of chemical dosing pumps.

“Stepper motors at 100% look like every other method of pumping. That all changes during turndown and the advantages of the stepper motor becomes evident,” said Gabel. “Attendees of this talk will have a better grasp on the role stepper motors play in digital dosing pumps and how combining smart technologies enable safe and reliable chemical dosing that saves maintenance time and avoids unnecessary equipment costs.”

Houston—Grundfos will find out who has the guts and let them take home the glory—and $10,000—at National Groundwater Association’s Groundwater Week on Wednesday, Dec. 4, at Grundfos booths #445 and 545.

Groundwater Week, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, marks the pinnacle of a year- long WaterPRO Championship competition, which put water well contractors to the test at over 80 qualifying events across the United States and Canada. Our qualifying challenge sent participants barreling towards victory on the Road to Guts & Glory—a timed virtual reality game that tested both industry and Grundfos product knowledge. Nine participants with the highest scores from the U.S. and one participant with the highest score from Canada have been invited to the WaterPRO Championship semifinals at Groundwater Week.

Participants who did not achieve one of the top scores at the qualifying events will have a chance to give one more try at Grundfos’ booth, and the two highest scores will advance to the semifinals. With the final two participants in place, semifinalists will compete in a new challenge involving Grundfos products. Semifinalists with the top three times will advance to the finals for another unique challenge.

The schedule for Dec. 4 is as follows:

  • 10 AM to 1 PM: Qualifying event for past participants at Grundfos booth #545 with opportunity to advance to semifinals
  • 2:15 PM: Semifinals
  • 3:10 PM: WaterPRO Championship final heat
  • 3:25 PM: WaterPRO Championship winner announced
  • 6 to 9 PM: Hospitality event at Hard Rock Café, formal awards ceremony at 6:45 PM

    “This year’s WaterPRO Championship has attracted so much talent,” said Dan Story, vice president of Groundwater sales for Grundfos USA. “We’ve all enjoyed seeing the expertise and skills that these competitors have brought to the table since the qualifying events began in January. And last year’s winner, Jason Johnson, is back to defend his title. The semifinals and finals at Groundwater Week should be a thrilling culmination that challenges some of the most experienced water well contractors in North America.”

    This is the second year Grundfos has held the WaterPRO Challenge. Grundfos will hold the competition throughout 2020 as well. This year’s semifinalists include:

  • Eric Van De Yacht, Leo Van De Yacht Pump, Score 862.53
