— Grundfos “Pumps on Tour”—a fully equipped, mobile educational center for trade professionals in the residential, commercial and industrial pumping industry—will be visiting 48 different cities throughout the United States from March through November 2010. Each tour stop will allow trade professionals to gain hands-on training from Grundfos staff and the chance to experience interactive pump displays.

The 1,200-square-foot vehicle includes a mini-theater for viewing training videos and presentations, as well as a series of interactive, working displays of a wide selection of residential, commercial and industrial pump solutions from Grundfos.

Pumps on Tour will feature:

  • The new ALPHA™, an energy-optimized, 115-volt circulator featuring a permanent magnet motor design that will cut power consumption by a minimum of 50%, as compared with other circulators in its class.

  • Thinking Buildings Universe (, a new 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.

  • The award-winning Multi-Stage CR-H, the perfect solution for ANSI (American National Standards Institute) pump users seeking improved efficiency and increased longevity for their existing pumps.

The first tour event of 2010 will be held today in Raleigh-Durham, N.C., with multiple stops throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States during March, April and May. An updated list of tour events and registration can be found at
