CR Pump Used for Boiler Feed By Regie Des Installations Olympiques

Overview

The Régie des Installations Olympiques (RIO) wanted to change the three split case pumps used to heat the world-famous Olympic Stadium in Montreal and other buildings. These pumps, installed in 1976, no longer met the facilitie’s energy efficiency standards.  Furthermore, equipment maintenance was becoming problematic as spare parts were very costly and not readily available. The total capacity needed to meet boiler power requirements at 393-foot head was 1100 us gpm.

Pompe Viking (Montreal branch), one of our business partners, assisted by RIO’s technical team, selected and supplied three Grundfos CR64-4-1 pumps equipped with 50hp WEG TEFC motors in order to meet the requirements of the facility. The new pumps now offered a 79% hydraulic efficiency, a marked improvement from the old pumps. This new efficiency allowed for 50 hp motors to be used instead of the original 60hp motors and for thousands of dollars to be saved annually in terms of electricity.

Not only are these pumps great energy savers, they can also be maintained by RIO technicians on site. Repair is greatly simplified by the mechanical seals and (rotating assembly) stack kits rotating parts.

Mr. Robert Forget, one of RIO’s head technicians, also appreciates the fact that the cartridge mechanical seal can be changed without having to remove the 50hp motor. In fact, this procedure only takes about fifteen minutes.

The three Grundfos CR64-4-1 pumps have been up and running for more than two years and the RIO is quite satisfied with the reliability, smooth operation and efficiency of their Grundfos pumps.
