Question: Can a Grundfos CRE-DP be mounted in the air instead of on the ground?
Answer: Yes it can. There are two ways to install it off the floor.
The first is simply to use a fabricated stand just like pictured here. The second option is to suspend it per the factory supplied drawing shown below.
The CR series vertical multi-stage pump is a home run with specifying engineers due to using up approximately 1/5 the space of a comparable base mounted pump. It also includes the VFD, DP sensors and integrated logic controls.
For the installing mechanical contractors, they save cost by no longer having to add suction diffusers, pouring housekeeping pads or hiring subcontractors to install external VFDs.
