For many decades, booster pumps have replaced piston pumps in the drinking water supply sector of higher regions. The centrifugal pumps cause low investment costs, but the follow-up costs are often ignored by the increased energy requirements. Rising energy costs ensure ever higher operating costs for waterworks. In the course of the energy revolution, a doubling of the electricity costs for the operation of the pumps is to be expected in the next few years.
For these reasons, greater emphasis must be placed on energy efficiency, sustainability and reliability in the selection of pump technology. URACA plunger pumps fulfill all these requirements perfectly and are characterized by high efficiencies and constant flow rates.
A high-pressure plunger pump achieves a pump efficiency of over 90 percent depending on the delivery head and flow rate. Even in partial load operation, the plunger pump is still very efficient. The significantly better efficiency compared to other pumps noticeably reduces operating costs. At the same time, CO2 emissions are reduced. The greater the height differences that need to be overcome for the drinking water supply, the higher the energy-related savings.
URACA plunger pumps are very interesting for drinking water supply from a delivery height of 250 meters. Specially adapted pump models such as the P3-45 and P4-20 continuously deliver up to 10.75 liters per second over differences in altitude of up to 1,000 meters. The pumps can be used for drinking water supply in the Alps or in low mountain ranges like the Swabian Alb. Almost all URACA pumps are adaptable to the needs of the water supply.
URACA has a large range of energy-efficient pumps available for drinking water supply.
The pump technology used in waterworks has a major impact on energy costs. URACA plunger pumps offer high efficiency and enable enormous energy cost savings.
