Description/design of Wilo Pumps
- Wilo Pumps Single-stage low-pressure centrifugal pump as baseplate pump with axial suction piece with flanged bearing bracket and axis mounting for flexibly coupled drives.
- Spacer coupling (sleeve coupling) available as an option; they make it possible to leave the motor in position when removing the rotor unit
- Shaft deflection meets the requirements of ISO 5199
- If pumps with 2900 rpm are installed inside residential buildings, then corresponding noise reducing measures are to be implemented.
- Pump curves and specific motor powers depend on the respective fluid being pumped. Pump curves and power vary considerably when fluids are conveyed that differ from water in thickness and/or viscosity. For this, please observe the table “Recommended limit values for dimensioning”.
The recommended limit values for dimensioning are calculated as follows:
Qoptimum (volume flow at which the pump reaches its best efficiency), to be read from the individual pump curve; factors Qmin and Qmax , to be taken from the table “Recommended limit values for dimensioning”.Qmin dimensioning = Qmin x Qoptimum
Qmax dimensioning = Qmax x Qoptimum
Example: Size NL 32-125
Qmin = 0.3 x 8 = 2.4 m3/h
Qmax = 1.2 x 8 = 9.6 m3/h
- Load-sensitive pump output
All Wilo standard pumps are equipped with IEC standard motors. The Wilo control devices are suitable for automatic load-sensitive speed control of pumps that are driven by any standard motors of conventional manufacture.

General notes – ErP (ecological design-) directive
- The benchmark for most efficient water pumps is MEI ≥ 0.70
- The efficiency of a pump with a trimmed impeller is usually lower than that of a pump with the full impeller diameter. The trimming of the impeller will adapt the pump to a fixed duty point, leading to reduced energy consumption. The minimum efficiency index (MEI) is based on the full impeller diameter.
- The operation of this water pump with variable duty points may be more efficient and economic when controlled, for example, by the use of a variable speed drive that matches the pump duty to the system.
