Grundfos announced that it is expanding its efficient and innovative solutions for the water and wastewater industry. Attendees at the Water Environment Federation’s 2018 Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC), held Sept. 29-Oct. 3 in New Orleans, were given the chance to interact with new pumps, products and technologies at the Grundfos booth.

Visitors experienced the new, expanded range of Grundfos CR vertical multistage pumps from the top of the Empire State Building, on a helicopter or even in a racecar – via virtual reality simulations. An interactive technology station featured Grundfos’ new concept, Grundfos Wastewater Connect, a cloud-based remote monitoring and system optimization. Visitors were also able to get a hands-on look at Grundfos Service Solutions and pump selection tool Grundfos Express at the touchscreen tech station.

Grundfos also displayed the new patent pending improved solid handling capabilities of the SE/SL submersible wastewater pumps. Additionally, the new dry pit pump with enhanced durability was on display, as was Grundfos’ high-efficiency submersible pumps and an engineered packaged pump system with expanded controls capabilities.
