Solar Powered Water Pumping System
Solar energy has become the ideal sustainable alternative energy for more and more people these days. SQFlex Solar is cheap to run, reliable and virtually maintenance free - perfect for big country land management where "just out back" can mean 300 miles away! Grundfos' solar panels are long lasting, noiseless and bill-free.
The SQFlex system from Grundfos is more than just a water pump. It's a total concept tailored to any individual requirements. By examining some variables, (location, water table depth, and volume of water needed), we can put together the perfect combination for your needs.
The SQFlex system succeeds where other pump systems struggle by adapting to the characteristic weather profile of any given area. Analyzing such location specific variables as average sunshine and wind speed, makes it possible to calculate how much natural energy is available over an average season.
SQFlex solar powered pumps have built-in protection features that protect the pump itself and in many cases the well. Among these features are:
- Protection against dry-running, overloading and overheating.
- Automatic restart when water returns to the well or when the motor temperature returns to the safety range.
- Continuous load condition and voltage monitoring.
Dry run protection is achieved through a sensor in the motor lead cable that shuts the pump down immediately upon loss of water.
SQFlex pump offers a user-friendly interface box that maintains two-way communication with the pump and monitors the operating conditions. Built-in diagnostics indicate faults and dry-running, display operating status power consumption and level switch input.
SQFlex centrifugal pumps enable high flow in shallow water conditions. Stainless steel components give high wear resistance.
Based on original pumping principles, the SQFlex helical rotor pump uses a few, simple components for effective pumping in high head and low flow conditions.
Natural energy rarely runs low, but if it ever does, the SQFlex can fall back on generator power, fuel cells, or batteries. It's integrated design makes changing between power supplies very easy.
All system components have been developed to optimize performance and to make installing and maintaining the system very easy. We believe this is the most reliable, flexible, cost-effective and easily maintained water supply system available.
