Filipino engineers up to speed on Grundfos i-solutions
Grundfos’ campaign to bring intelligent pumping solutions to the Middle East received a further boost when specialists from the company were invited to present their latest leading-edge pump systems at the second annual convention of the Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers (PSME), Western Region, on Friday 24th November.
Established in 2016, the new PSME Western Region was set up to promote knowledge and professionalism for Filipino mechanical engineers working in the Middle East, and now boasts in excess of 50 members. As a leading sponsor of their November convention at Jeddah’s Trident Hotel, Grundfos was asked to bring members up to date with the latest generation of highly efficient automated pumping systems.
During their hour-long presentation, Grundfos Executive Manager CBS, Syed Sohail Khaleel appraise the engineering fraternity about Grundfos core values and explained the benefits of the latest low energy systems, which bring together pumps, drives, controls, sensors and communication units as a single co-ordinated unit. The resulting systems are therefore able to adapt automatically to changes in operational conditions and flow rate, reducing energy demand, cutting waste and removing system stress for a more reliable, cost-effective and efficient pumping solution. Presentation highlighted upon Grundfos capabilities and its market leadership, drawing upon global perspective level and narrowed down to regional and local perspective.
Designated ‘isolutions’ because of their ability to react intelligently to external changes, this latest generation of pump solutions closely match pump operation to changing demand and cut out unnecessary components. Special sensors and remote management systems means that any problems in the systems can be picked up quickly on a PC or smartphone, and addressed quickly to reduce down- ime and maintenance costs.
Convention members were taken through a range of different everyday applications, including water boosting, wastewater handling, circulation and dosing/disinfecting, where the new isolution technology is already returning significant benefits to a range of Middle East operations, from Water Utilities and operators, to manufacturers of everything from food to pharmaceuticals.
Speaking after the presentation, Grundfos Hafi Uddin Khan, Product Specialist, Systems & Controls, BD&M said, “The audience was quick to appreciate the benefits of our total system approach in which all of the components are designed and engineered to work together and communicate automatically with each other, enabling the system to react quickly as demands change.
Whilst the technology is state-of-the-art, the systems themselves are simple to install, commission and manage, and provide high levels of energy efficiency to meet legislation now, and in the future.”
