Danfoss Drives in the Water industry

Danfoss Drives, we know water

Dedicated

The VLT® AQUA Drive, with its broad power range, and built-in intelligence to handle water, wastewater, and irrigation applications, provides you with the most flexible and yet dedicated energy optimization available.

Applications

  • Drives for mixers, dewatering and blowers

    Use AC drives to control the speed of motors in a wide range of pump, blower, mixer and dewatering applications to help enhance performance and value while saving energy and costs

  • Drives for water pumping

    For water supply based on surface water or groundwater, Danfoss AC drives can help optimize the production process whilst reducing energy and maintenance costs.

Success stories

  • St Josephs Hospital
    Hospital selects DrivePro® programs to keep costs down, maintain efficiency

    As the largest regional medical center in San Joaquin County, St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, Calif., has 359-beds, employs over 400 physicians and more than 2,400 employees. Operating the HVAC mechanical equipment for a facility this large is a huge energy-conservation challenge. That's why St. Joseph’s made the decision to use variable frequency drives (VFDs) on HVAC pump and fan motors —a decision that continues to pay off today, thanks to an innovative upgrade plan using Danfoss VLT® Drives.

  • Morocco Citrus Trees
    Solar-powered irrigation for citrus trees in Morocco

    A citrus farmer waters his citrus trees in a cost-efficient way thanks to solar-powered pumps driven by VACON® 100 X AC drives.

  • Water Wastewater City of Cottonwood
    Utility’s Growth Fueled by VFD's

    Management of water and wastewater is a major issue in the central highlands of Arizona, which gets only about 12 inches of precipitation a year. To handle growing water demands, the City devised a strategic water management plan that included creating a modern municipal water system with effective monitoring, control and pumping technology – a development made possible by Danfoss variable frequency drives (VFDs).

  • Western Oregon University pool
    Engineering Tomorrow Drives University Pool Pump Efficiency

    The recently enlarged Health and Wellness Center at Western Oregon University has also been recognized as one of the country’s best-in-class facilities in terms of design and practices — earning LEED Gold certification. Because of its dual commitment to aquatics and sustainability, the Center jumped at the chance to dramatically cut the swimming pool’s electricity consumption with two Danfoss VLT® AQUA Drives, which are specifically designed to meet the challenges of water applications.

  • Benton water treatment
    Fast Growing Water Plant Quickly Shifts to VLT® AQUA Drive

    The Benton/Washington Regional Public Water Authority (BWRPWA) operates as a wholesaler, providing up to 24 million gallons of drinking water per day to sixteen municipalities and other entities. To be a cost-effective water provider, the Authority operates pumps at varying speeds, night and day—which is why BWRPWA saw a lot of value in the Danfoss VLT® AQUA Drive, variable frequency drive.

  • VLT Food Processing Well
    Huge Water Savings from Food Processor’s Deep Well

    Food processing plants require a dependable source of water in large quantities for the washing and rinsing, steaming, cooking, and cooling of food, and during plant sanitation operations. That’s why a large Midwest food processor wanted full control over its water supply by constructing a private water well on its own property. However, what looked like a simple solution was quite complex below the surface — as the well driller discovered when he embarked on the project.
