Grundfos Introduces TPE3 In-Line Pump
January 22, 2019
Wireless technology enables the TPE3 to connect with up to four single TPE3 pumps.
Designed to advance pumping systems for commercial buildings, Grundfos has introduced the TPE3 in-line pump that features technologies that deliver improved efficiency for heating and cooling applications.
The the TPE3 showcases a Permanent Magnet Motor, hydraulic efficiencies, a series of control modes, multi-pump functionality, and easy install, monitoring and commissioning that boost system efficiency and deliver improved heating and cooling performance.
Grundfos’ Flow Limiting Function eliminates the need for a pump balancing valve and thereby reduces the pressure loss. This improves the overall performance of the system and reduces initial costs. Moreover, it features a built-in heat energy meter that can monitor heat energy distribution and consumption, preventing excessive energy bills caused by system imbalances.
With the TPE3, the ΔT is never too high or too low. TPE3’s integrated ΔT control cuts down on the costs of a differential temperature sensor, as it can operate based on the measured difference between flow temperature and return temperature. This is done via the built-in sensor and connecting one external sensor directly to the TPE3, which allows the pump to take charge of the system’s need for flow based on differential temperature.
The TPE3 is an all-round in-line pump that can be used in all heating, cooling and district energy systems.
Wireless technology enables the TPE3 to connect with up to four single TPE3 pumps – they can be controlled jointly in either cascade mode, alternating mode or duty/standby without the need for any other pump controller unit.
Built for easy monitoring, installation and commissioning
With many configurable relays and analog inputs, the complete TPE3 I/O package allows for better system monitoring and optimal pump regulation. It also comes packed with functionalities that allow for easy installation and commissioning via the pump display, including the possibility of connecting to Grundfos GO for intuitive handheld pump control and full access to Grundfos online tools.
