Temperature control: How to simplify your system and take control of costs

Is your temperature control system wasting energy?

Intelligent compact variable speed pumps from Grundfos can reduce complexity in your temperature control system or chiller unit, helping to improve energy efficiency and save capital and operational costs. With Grundfos iSOLUTIONS you can take control of the temperature control loop, and monitor and optimise the entire cooling system.

Grundfos iSolutions saves energy and helps you: 

  • Take full control using fewer components
  • Save capital and operational costs
  • Save installation costs
  • Reduced noise
  • Connect to your SCADA or BMS system for total overview and control

Expertly tailored to your needs

When you choose Grundfos iSOLUTIONS, our temperature control experts will work with you to tailor your cooling pumps to the precise requirements of your heat exchanger, chiller unit or cooling tower. You get a single point of contact for the design, installation and maintenance of your system.

Optimise your temperature control systems the intelligent way

There are several ways to configure a temperature control system. Grundfos iSOLUTIONS supports the intelligent direct approach, in which the temperature measurement feeds directly to the E-motor (a motor with built-in frequency converter). The PI regulator in the E-motor keeps a flow that corresponds to the desired temperature from the heat exchanger. This eliminates the need for a regulation valve and its correlating pressure loss.

The right pump size can reduce energy

Because the intelligent approach adjusts the flow directly according to temperature, it saves energy significantly and helps your clients take control of their operational costs. Furthermore, it offers the possibility for full monitoring and supervision of the system. To achieve highest energy efficiency, it is important to size the pump correctly. Moreover, as space is often limited, especially in chiller units, we have designed the market’s most compact combined pump, motor and frequency converter setup.

Find the best energy efficient pump fast

Optimise your intelligent temperature control system with one of the world’s most efficient motors, the MGE with IE5 certification. They offer 10% energy savings and up to 25% reduction in payback time in controlled E-pumps compared to IE3-certified solutions.
