Grundfos Takes Mobile Educational Center on Tour

Grundfos “Pumps on Tour”—a fully equipped, mobile educational center for trade professionals in the residential, commercial, and industrial pumping industry and the groundwater and irrigation industry—will make several stops throughout the Northeast region. As part of a 48-city, eight-month, nationwide tour, Pumps on Tour will have extended visits at the Atlantic Region Energy Expo (AREE) in Atlantic City, N.J., and the National Association of Oil Heat Service Managers (NAOHSM) 57th Annual Convention & Trade Show in Providence, R.I.

Each tour stop offers trade professionals opportunities to gain hands-on training from Grundfos staff and the ability to experience interactive pump displays. The 1,200-sq-ft vehicle includes a mini-theater for viewing training videos and presentations, as well as a series of interactive working displays from a wide selection of pumping solutions from Grundfos. Pumps on Tour will feature:

• The ALPHA, an energy-optimized, 115-v circulator featuring a permanent magnet motor design that can cut power consumption by a minimum of 50 percent compared with other circulators in its class.

• Thinking Buildings Universe (, an online resource offering contractors and engineers a complete range of information and tools on commercial pumps to help make their building projects come together more smoothly.
