HOUSTON — The Grundfos Hydro MPC HVAC pumping system was selected as the 2020 Commercial Comfort Products of the Year Award winner in the Pumps and Flow Controls category by Engineered Systems. The awards program was judged by an independent panel of consulting/specifying HVACR engineers.
“The system controls are fully integrable into the building management system, and the lifetime alignment guarantee ensures peace of mind for the building owner and operator,” said one of Engineered Systems’ judges. “Its advantages, which include a small footprint, single point of electrical service to multiple pumps, smaller pump impellers, etc., caused me to select it as the winner.”
“Traditionally, the Hydro MPC had been used in pressure-boosting applications,” said Greg Bretz, vice president of Grundfos Commercial Buildings. “We looked at the HVAC market and saw the opportunity to solve contractor and engineering challenges by moving to packaged systems for HVAC as well, similar to the evolution that both factory packaged chillers and boilers went through decades ago.”
Grundfos launched an additional variation of the Hydro MPC with CME pumps at AHR Expo 2020. Later this year, the company plans to launch more pump configuration options.
