Planning guide

 

Inlet pressure

The maximum inlet pressure (see Technical data) must be taken into account when configuring the system. The maximum permissible inlet pressure is calculated from the maximum operating pressure of the system minus the maximum pump delivery head at Q = 0

Pressure reducer

Fluctuating inlet pressure is compensated by the speed control integrated into each single pump as long as the pressure fluctuation is not greater than the difference between the setpoint pressure value and the zero-delivery head of the single pump at minimum speed. If the pressure fluctuation is greater, a pressure reducing valve must be installed upstream of the system.

Volume flow

Up to 155 m3/h (43 l/s) system configuration in accordance with DIN 1988 (EN 806); with standby pump up to 185 mm3/h (51 l/s) during operation of the standby pump as an auxiliary peak-load unit

Residual-current-operated protection

switch

When installing residual-current-operated protection switches in conjunction with frequency converters, bear in mind that only universal-current-sensitive residual-current-operated protection switches in accordance with DIN/VDE 0664 are to be fitted.

Wilo-WMS low-water cut-out switchgear

The series Helix VE pump being used is already equipped with an integrated dry-running detection as safety equipment for the pump. Nevertheless, the installation of a low-water cut-out switchgear is required in cases where the pressure boosting systems are connected directly to a public mains power supply; that prevents the inlet pressure in the mains supply line from falling below 1.0 bar. Please order directly when ordering the pressure boosting system. The WMS will then be installed in the pressure boosting system, electrically wired and fully tested by Wilo during the final functional test.

Standards/directives

The overall system conforms with the requirements of

  • DIN 1988 Part 5
  • DIN 1988 Part 6* (**)

* The specifications in DIN 1988 (EN 806) and of the water-supply companies are to be observed. Regarding the electrical components, the system conforms with the requirements of

  • VDE 0100 Part 430/Part 540
  • VDE 0110 Part 1/Part 2
  • VDE 0660 Part 101/Part 107 and
  • DIN 40719/IEC 754

Always observe the specifications in DIN 1988 (EN 806) when using and operating the pressure boosting system.(**) That does not apply to fire extinguishing systems in accordance with DIN 14462. Please request these separately.
