Grundfos introduces MAGNA3 to North American market
July 16, 2013, Chicago – The MAGNA3 is a variable-speed wet rotor circulator that cuts power consumption by up to 85 per cent compared to conventional circulators.
offers the ability
to match pump speed to varying system loads. It is also designed with variable-speed with a electronically commutated motor (ECM)-based circulator that uses an integrated logic algorithm to “learn” the
varying energy-usage patterns of an application over time. This is built to enable the software to automatically determine
the lowest possible operating-efficiency point.
The auto adapt function continuously updates
power consumption and flow rates.
“As demand for water efficiency surges, building operators are zeroing in on the untapped potential of smart
pumps,” said Simon Feddema
, president of Grundfos
Canada. “MAGNA3 is
the only circulator on the market
which lives up to their demands for
efficiency, intelligence and sustainability.”
The MAGNA3 consume
20 to 40 per cent less energy than most models in the current MAGNA line. In developing the MAGNA3, Grundfos committed to
achieving the European Energy Efficiency Index of 0.20, which exceeds the efficiency ratings of any circulators on the market in North America.
The product features building
management systems and built-in heat energy metering. Additionally, wireless connectivity enables handheld
pump control, monitoring and reporting capabilities by Grundfos GO, a mobile toolbox available on Apple and
In addition, MAGNA3 now handles temperatures as low as 14
degrees Fahrenheit, making it an even better
choice for cooling as well as heating applications. It also features a near 60 feet and the maximum flow to approximately 570 gallons per
minute. And with more than 35 single and twin circulators in cast iron or stainless steel, MAGNA3 is the
solution for a wide range of commercial and domestic application: heating, cooling and air-conditioning,
domestic hot water, ground source heat pump, and solar heating.
