Grundfos BoosterpaQ®and CRE-Plus
Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems are manufactured to the highest standards in the industry. Our MPC controllers can handle even the most difficult boosting applications with ease and accuracy.
- Outstanding reliability
- High efficiency
- Fully integrated, all-in-one systems
- Systems to match every need and requirement
- Easy installation and operation
- Technology based on decades of know-how
Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems are based on the world-renowned CR range of multistage centrifugal pumps. Grundfos was the first to develop this pump type nearly 40 years ago, and the current generation of CR pumps remains unchallenged as the world’s best. With their history of outstanding reliability and efficiency, CR pumps provide the best foundation for our booster systems.
BoosterpaQ systems equipped with intelligent CRE pumps offer an even higher rate of efficiency as well as reduced energy costs. CRE pumps are equipped with an integrated variable-frequency drive motor. The end result is complete control, optimum flexibility of booster output, and unbeatable efficiency at all times.
THE COMPLETE SOLUTION
All components have been combined with focus on quality and efficiency. Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems are designed to last: sturdy, compact units with easy access to all service parts.
Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems can be used wherever additional pressure is needed. Each booster model has been designed to meet the customer’s specific needs and requirements for capacity and control.
Our BoosterpaQ systems are ideal for water supply systems and pressure boosting in multi-story buildings, which can vary significantly throughout the day. These situations can place extraordinary demands on the equipment used. Grundfos booster systems make it easy to provide optimum comfort for the user by maintaining constant water pressure at all levels and at all times.
The Multi-Pump Control – MPC
THE “BRAINS” OF THE SYSTEM
The newly developed, highly advanced MPC control unit is the “brain” behind our BoosterpaQ systems. Specially designed for Grundfos boosters, the MPC is easy to operate and monitor.
The primary task of the MPC unit is to control the number of pumps in operation, as well as the speed of the individual pumps, in order to adjust the performance of the system to variations in demand. The MPC controller is capable of controlling up to six pumps connected in parallel.
Grundfos has used its experience with pump system controls to design the operation platform and control functions of the MPC to suit a wide range of application types.
The result is a highly advanced control system that offers multiple features and functions that can be used to improve the performance of the booster system while maintaining a user-friendly operator interface.
Because ease of use was a top priority when developing the MPC controller, Grundfos designed a user interface that offers a wide range of features and functions that make operating the device intuitively simple.
- Large, backlit graphic display screen with overview of
the system, including key measuring points
- Menu bar for easy navigation
- System information and status
- Control functions
- Cascade control
- Speed control
- Help funtion for each screen
The MPC is set up for various communication systems to help you monitor and control the unit from a distance.
- BUS communication
- Ethernet via built-in web server
- Grundfos GENI Bus for interface with other Grundfos
Via the Ethernet connection, the Grundfos BoosterpaQsystem can be operated from a remote computer where
the user will be able to view the control panel on their computer screen. This allows you to operate the booster system as easily as if you were standing in front of the actual control panel.
Remote monitoring and data acquisition is also possible. Status on individual pump and system levels, as well as operating conditions, settings, control mode, warnings, and alarms can be read out from a remote computer.
FULLY ADAPTABLE TO YOUR APPLICATION
Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems adapt to variations in demand at all levels and at any time. Whether in residential buildings or in industrial applications, a Grundfos booster system is capable of maintaining pre-set constant-pressure or required water or temperature levels. This capability prevents undesirable fluctuations and keeps energy consumption at the lowest level possible while reducing wear and tear on pipes and valves.
Only long-term savings are real savings, and Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems are created with this in mind. They combine innovative technology, exact capacity adjustment, low maintenance, and many other features that help to significantly reduce the total cost of owning a booster system over its lifetime.
PUMP TECHNOLOGY FOR SUPERIOR EFFICIENCY
At the heart of every Grundfos booster system you’ll find a Grundfos CR or CRE pump. Decades of engineering experience have been applied to take the efficiency and reliability of these pumps to the highest level.
SUBSTANTIAL SAVINGS ON ENERGY COSTS
On average, the Grundfos CR pump models offer higher pump efficiency compared to any other multi-stage centrifugal pump on the market, which translates into energy savings for every CR pump. When pumps are in operation for several hours each day, improvements such as these provide substantial savings on energy costs year in and year out.
FAST AND EASY MAINTENANCE
The CR pumps used in Grundfos BoosterpaQ systems incorporate many features that make maintenance work easy and fast, thereby saving you time and money. For example, the patented shaft seal is remarkably durable and can be replaced in a matter of minutes and without the use of special tools.
Similar care and consideration has gone into the overall design of the entire system in order to make our boosters easy to install and service-friendly. Over time, this adds up to a substantial savings for you.
