End-suction pump solutions
21 June 2018
In 40 years of delivering end-suction pumps, Grundfos has introduced many improvements that have enhanced both the product line-up and its application span that today includes water supply, industrial pressure boosting, industrial liquid transfer, HVAC and irrigation.
The Grundfos NB(E), NGK(E), NK(E), NKG(E) ranges are manufactured in ISO 9001 certified facilities, and today's range comprises a series of close-coupled (NB/NBE family) and long-coupled (NK/NKE family) pumps that are compliant with EN733 or ISO2858. All are non-self-priming single stage, centrifugal pumps with axial suction port, radial discharge port and horizontal shaft.
The back pull out design facilitates removal of the motor, coupling, bearing bracket (NK/NKG) and impeller without disturbing the pump housing or pipework. This simplifies maintenance and enables servicing, of even the largest pumps, by one person with a crane.
The pumps, which are said to offer reliability, flexibility and energy efficiency, are often available on a short lead-time.
