A building-block approach to plant design brings many advantages, but also some challenges to be addressed.
Pump Technology

What Will The Pump Design of The Future Look Like?

Shorter planning and construction times, more flexible utilization options through rapid modifications, and everything as energy-efficient as possible: The Enpro initiative (Energy Efficiency and Process Acceleration for the Chemical Industry) is opening up interesting options for the process industries with its various development projects. New designs for pumps also offer undreamed-of opportunities, as the first modular concepts and the Hector project show. We explain how tomorrow’s pumps may be both modular and energy-efficient.

Under pressure: Grundfos is also a pioneer when it comes to additive manufacturing, e.g. of pump impellers.
Milestone Pump Technology

Standing Out Through Innovation: Only by Really Understanding the Users Is It Possible to Become the World Market Leader in Pump Technology

What do operators of the technology-focused process industry expect from a pump manufacturer? Well, they certainly expect in-depth application knowledge relating to all aspects of central production processes. Industry-specific know-how is and always has been an important driving force behind innovation at Grundfos. Today, other topics like resource efficiency and sustainability are gaining hugely in importance.

No hassle with the pump: To prevent this from happening, the article reveals useful tips.
Centrifugal Pumps in the Process Industry

How Operators of Centrifugal Pumps Avoid Trouble by Choosing the Right Pumps and the Right Configuration

Selection and configuration of centrifugal pumps — Even though it doesn’t make happy reading for manufacturers of displacement pumps, centrifugal pumps are generally regarded as the workhorse of the process industry — with an estimated market share of around 80 %. And workhorses need to be properly looked after, meaning that operators can reduce trouble down the line with a more careful selection and configuration of centrifugal pumps. Here are some ideas and suggestions for this …
