About the Pump
A standard split coupling connects the pump and motor shaft. It is enclosed in the pump head/motor stool by means of two coupling guards. This Grundfos CR 15-8 pump head, pump head cover and flange for motor mounting is made in one piece. The pump head has a combined 1/2″ priming plug and vent screw.
The Grundfos CR 15-8 pump is fitted with a balanced O-ring seal unit with a rigid torque-transmission system. This seal type is assembled in a cartridge unit which makes replacement safe and easy. Due to the balancing, this seal type is suitable for high-pressure applications. The cartridge construction also protects the pump shaft from possible wear from a dynamic O-ring between pump shaft and shaft seal.
The motor is a totally enclosed, fan-cooled motor with principal dimensions to IEC and DIN standards.
The motor is flange-mounted with free-hole flange (FF).
Motor-mounting designation in accordance with IEC 60034-7: IM B 5 (Code I) / IM 3001 (Code II).
Electrical tolerances comply with IEC 60034.
The motor efficiency is classified as IE3 in accordance with IEC 60034-30-1.
The motor has thermistors (PTC sensors) in the windings in accordance with DIN 44081/DIN 44082. The protection reacts to both slow- and quick-rising temperatures, e.g. constant overload and stalled conditions.
Thermal switches must be connected to an external control circuit in a way which ensures that the automatic reset cannot cause accidents. The motors must be connected to a motor-protective circuit breaker according to local regulations.
The motor can be connected to a variable speed drive for adjustment of pump performance to any duty point. Grundfos CUE offers a range of variable speed drives.
