Raw water intake and pumping: with minimum energy costs to maximum security of supply
The sustainable and future-proof water supply for domestic households, industry and agriculture is a big challenge in the face of dwindling resources, growing demands on water and fluctuating ground water levels. Thanks to Wilo’s pumps, system solutions and services, you can overcome it. We’re your professional partner, supporting you at every phase of your project from design and dimensioning to commissioning and maintenance.
The comprehensive range of solutions for any requirement
The pumping of spring and ground water from wells and chambers as well as from surface water is an important basis for securing water supply. Wilo provides comprehensive support to the water utility companies. Whether they’re looking for solutions for wells or surface water - municipal operators are provided with reliable and economical pump systems for water extraction from springs for any field of application, any installation depth and for changing water levels. With high-efficiency motors and variable-speed drives, they’re ideal for meeting individual requirements.
Water utility companies rely on Wilo’s comprehensive and future-oriented, digitalised system solutions for water extraction. They can be efficiently adapted to changing operating conditions. Our pumps minimise energy costs and set new standards in efficiency, flexibility and operational reliability.
For raw water intake near the surface, we offer norm, monobloc and axially split case pumps, and also borehole pumps in pressure shroud design with maximum efficiency. We also offer our pumps with drinking water approvals (e.g. ACS, WRAS, UBA) to meet the highest standards for drinking water quality. From best-in-class high-efficiency pumps and motors with an innovative Ceram coating, Wilo provides the perfect solution to meet your requirements.
How to achieve the greatest energy savings
As an operator, you need reliable energy and water management to significantly reduce your energy consumption with high flow rates and long operating times. Wilo offers you a combination of benefits in reference to this.
Benefit from our modern frequency converters, which enable variable speed control of your Wilo well pumps. This results in optimum operation of your pumps at different duty points i.e. with maximum energy efficiency. Flexible control means that your desired volume flow or required water pressure is always available.
Moreover, our innovative Ceram CT coating technology provides you with a further increase in pump efficiency thanks to lower flow losses.
How to securely pump water with corrosive and abrasive components
Climate change and the associated water shortage require solutions for raw water intake under difficult conditions, which can vary depending on the location. As the person responsible for the water supply, extraction is still easy and reliable for you with Wilo.
For water extraction with a high sand content, for example in agricultural applications, you can count on our robust pumps to provide a long-lasting, high level of efficiency. The same applies to raw water intake in seawater desalination plants - here too, our pumps cope well over the long term thanks to application-specific material selection.
We use highly-resistant materials such as Duplex or our unique Wilo Ceram coatings to meet your requirements for water with corrosive and abrasive components. They withstand attacks from aggressive fluids and allow long-term pumping operation with a consistently high pump performance. Our innovative Ceram CP coating also protects against deposits such as ochre formation, and therefore ensures a longer service life with lower maintenance costs.
Your constant for fluctuating water levels and demands
Always provide the right amount of water at the right pressure at minimal energy cost. Our energy-efficient, controllable pumps are ideal for reacting to changing duty points in the case of fluctuating ground water levels or fluctuating water demand. You can achieve maximum efficiency with our state-of-the-art, compact frequency converters and high-efficiency permanent magnet motor, even with changing duty points.
Create your future network today with digital technologies
With Wilo, you are well prepared for the digital age – future-proof technology means secure investments. We use all our expertise and the latest technologies to help you progress. These include services tailored to you, digital monitoring units and state-of-the-art speed-controlled pumps. In this way, you secure the operational reliability of your municipal water supply and create a seamless connection to the network control technology of your towns and communities.
