CR Expanded Range Wins Product of the Year Award from Plant Engineering
The expanded range of Grundfos’ CR vertical inline multistage pump range was selected as one of the Product of the Year Award winners in the Fluid Handling category by Plant Engineering. The program honors the best innovations of 2019, as voted by the magazine’s audience.
The new, expanded generation of Grundfos CR pumps is a more efficient, robust addition to the world-class CR pump range. The CR 95, CR 125 and CR 155 feature a new hydraulic design that improves everything — from impeller and guide vanes to inlet, discharge port, sleeve and diffuser — providing industry-leading energy efficiency and pump reliability across a higher performance range.
“We’re proud to receive this recognition,” said Jonathan Hamp-Adams, president and general manager of Grundfos USA. “The expanded CR range is a water-moving marvel. With efficiencies greater than 80%, offering more than 1,000 gpm and 1,000 feet of head, the vertical multistage pump is a product without peers.”
Grundfos pioneered the first vertical multistage inline pump in 1972. The new CR expanded range uses less energy and is even more robust for heavy workload conditions. Achieving this required extensive research, development and testing of hydraulic designs, engineered using state-of-the-art methods including a fully-automated and flexible production line.
“We have seen significant demand in the industrial sector for the expanded range of CRs, including in membrane filtration systems, as well as wash and clean and temperature control applications,” explained Jay Stellmacher, vice president of sales for industry at Grundfos. “The new CR significantly moves the limits for performance and energy efficiency, which is essential when you are working with large pumps.”
