Grundfos Pumps India Pvt Ltd (GPIPL), subsidiary of Danish energy-efficient pumps specialist Grundfos Holdings, has launched an intelligent solar pump – the Smart Solarz – for domestic application. The self-priming pump has been conceptualised, designed and manufactured in the country, the company said.
Designed to cater to the specific needs of domestic consumers, Smart Solarz’s wet parts are made of food grade engineered polymers to be corrosion-free. It also provides protection against dry run and level controls, and features a 150W / 24V BLDC motor, the Chennai-headquartered GPIPL informed in a press release.
“We are proud to launch this intelligent, solar pump which was envisioned and created in India. Smart Solarz is a reliable and robust pump for homeowners,” said the company’s managing director Ranganath N K. “It is easy to install, lightweight and has low-maintenance features. All this along with the fact that it runs on solar power, makes it an ideal choice for many uses and customers.”
According to Ranganath, Smart Solarz is best suited for houses and buildings which have a ground floor and maximum of two additional floors, especially in areas where the power supply is poor or not available. It is ideal for farmhouses, beach houses, rural and semi-urban areas. The pump operates with solar panels of 250W / 36V (open circuit). The product can be used for water pumping from sump to overhead tanks as well as in greenhouses, lawns, gardens, solar-powered fountains, and for feeding livestock.
