Grundfos India to switch from IE1 to IE2 motors as standard

 Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd. (Grundfos India) announced that the company will be switching from IE1 to IE2 motors as standard from 1st August. To begin with, it will be implemented in the CR range of pumps and will be gradually extended to other products as well.
“In alignment with the global trend of shifting towards energy efficient motors which was introduced in Europe in 2011, and in China this year, Grundfos is the first pump company in India to move to these energy efficiency IE2 motors,” the company statement said.
Pumps currently consume 10 per cent of global electricity. Without precisely the right motor, even the best pump will consistently waste energy. “With Grundfos high efficiency pump and motor technology, it reduces the average pump’s energy consumption by up to 60 per cent,” the company claims.
IE2 motors are highly energy efficient. Using IE2 motors will help reduce the lifecycle cost of the pump and also save the operational costs. Some of the benefits of using these energy efficient motors include:
• Operate at better efficiency when they are lightly loaded because of their better design• Dissipate less heat compared to standard efficiency motors due to higher efficiency• Use of energy efficient fans keeps the motor at lower temperatures• Increases life of insulation and windings besides increase in overall life of motor• Total energy cost: its life cycle cost is much lower when compared to conventional motors• Better tolerance to thermal and electric stresses• Ability to operate at higher ambient temperatures• Ability to withstand abnormal operating conditions such as low voltage, high voltage or phase imbalance.
Ranganath N. K., Managing Director, Grundfos India, said, “The move to switch to IE2 showcases our commitment to helping our customers reduce their energy consumption and costs. There is an increased awareness about the use of energy efficient products and we are confident that this will be well received by our customers.”
