With the aim of continual improvement, Carlor Engineering has decided to replace the Grundfos UPS1 pumps with Grundfos UPS2 pumps on its Tosptart (TSG). The new Grundfos UPS2 pumps can also be mounted on old Topstart (TSG) as the rotor is compatible with our current heating bodies.
The Grundfos UPS2 is a high efficiency Eup 2015 compliant pump. The installation of one of these pumps will reduce the power consumption considerably. The lower power consumption is achieved through new electronics and hydraulics. The UPS2 circulator pumps have the following features:
• integrated differential-pressure control enabling adjustment of pump performance to the actual system requirement
• motor based on permanent magnet/compact-rotor technology.
If compared to a Topstart with standard Wilo pump, the savings will be the following:
|Pump type||Power Consumption @ 6m head||Annual Power consumption||Annual cost*||Annual CO² produced**|
|Grundfos UPS2||48W||420,48 kW/h||42 €||136 kg|
|Wilo RS 25/6||93W||814,68 kW/h||81 €||264 kg|
|Yearly Savings||394,20 kW/h||39 €||128 kg|
*with electricity price @ 0,10€ per kW/h (European average for industrial consumer in 2013)
** with 0,3240 kg of C02 produced per kW/h (European average)
Since a Topstart with Grundfos pump is a little bit more expensive (40,70 € adder on list price), the return on investment is about 1 year. Although being more expensive, the Topstart equipped with this new generation of Grundfos pump can actually help you save money!
