Grundfos high-efficiency  IE5 motors and pumps 

Grundfos’ E-pumps with integrated frequency converter are designed for total control, customer convenience and environmental sustainability. Grundfos’ MGE E-motors exceed the IE5 requirements by more than 2% with a motor efficiency of 95.7% at 380 V/2, 600 rpm. The built-in application control in MGE E-motors reduces not only the energy consumption of the pump, but also optimizes the performance and efficiency of the entire system. The permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) are designed specifically for frequency converter operations and optimized for pump applications and high part-load efficiency. The PMSM also has a built-in frequency converter that enables variable-speed operation with benefits in pump applications ranging from energy savings, process control, extra functionalities, built-in motor protection, higher performance and more compact pumps, reduced water hammer due to long ramp times and low starting currents. 800-926-6688;
