Grundfos CMBE-Booster in a Box

Grundfos CMBE Booster-Engineered Booster in a Box!

Grundfos CMBE-Booster in a Box












The CMBE Booster is designed for domestic and commercial water supply, pressure boosting, irrigation and dewatering applications.

The CMBE series is available in both 1x110-120V and 1x200-240V variants and uses energy efficient, permanent magnet motor technology, which provides unmatched reliability, quiet operation, and energy savings.

Thanks to the integrated speed controller, the CMBE keeps a constant pressure in the pipe system. A pressure sensor monitoring discharge pressure will signal to the speed controller to change the motor speed to adapt the performance to the new situation.

Constant pressure via integrated speed control
Compact design
Robust, stainless steel design
Easy installation
Low energy consumption
Dry-running protection

Noise level below 55 dBA and even lower at controlled speed

The CMBE Booster is a complete pump system preassembled with the following components:

CME pump with integrated frequency converter
5-way fitting with non-return valve
Diaphragm tank
Pressure gauge
Pressure sensor

Barnes Panels with Oil Sensor Switch

Barnes "Boss" Panels

Barnes Panels with Oil Sensor Switch
The Barnes BOSS series is designed to provide pump control and alarm notification of potentially threatening water and oil levels in simplex pumping applications. The BOSS features an innovative switch that senses the difference between oil and water to remove water from the tank, while preventing oil from being pumped into the environment. The Oil Sensor Switch features four probes (start level, stop level, high water level, reference for ground) and a mechanical high oil alarm float.

If water/oil levels reach past the high water probe or mechanical high oil float the BOSS will activate an alarm, but the water/oil will need to be manually pumped out by an operator. 

The BOSS PLUS removes water and other fluids automatically from elevator pits without any human intervention while preventing oil from being pumped into the environment.

At Tacoma Housing Authority today working with Holaday Parks installing two Patterson Kelly Mach & Roll's. 
The P-K Mach ‘n’ Roll® system provides building heat and domestic hot water with little to no scale build up. It is ideally suited for commercial building applications such as schools, office buildings, apartments, hotels and offices. This efficient water to water heating system is manufactured from the highest quality materials combining a robust aluminum alloy heat exchanger above, with an indirect stainless steel heat exchanger below. Both zones were individually engineered using different alloys that when used together, delivers higher efficiency and industry leading reliability.

Great work Guys!

Viessmann Boiler Work

Viessmann Boiler Repair

Viessmann Boiler Work

This is a Viessman boiler with a Weishaupt oil fired burner. This unit supplies hydronic heat, and DHW, via tank mounted tube shell heat exchanger for their gym and locker room. 

We replaced the blower wheel, blower motor, oil pump coupling and insert. This boiler was in need of some serious attention. After addressing som ingition and combustion issues the Hurley Team got it all fixed up and running again. 

Viessmann is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of efficient, reliable and affordable heating and solar products. Our innovative solutions are simple to install, service and use. Viessmann offers a comprehensive range of German-engineered products, from oil and gas-fired boilers to biomass, solar thermal, hot water heating and more for applications in residential, multi-family, commercial, light industrial, schools, universities, hospitals, municipalities and government buildings.

Grundfos LCS-E Split Coupled Base Mounted End Suction Pump

Grundfos has introduced a new LCS Series Split Coupled End Suction Centrifugal Pumps. The new LCS series is offered in a variety of sizes to interchange with the PACO LF Series Long  Coupled Pumps. Using the new Grundfos LCS series aliviates the need to grout the bases or laser align the pump after installation.

It also feature back pull out design and a split coupling for ease of maintenance and with an optional intergral vfd the LCS series can  be used in several different applications including Heating, Pressure Boosting, and Chilled Water.


Concept to Completion, "PacoPAQ is the Dude"

PacoPAQ design solutions win a competitive bid by coming in under budget and meeting design requirements

Whether it’s to add extra capacity to an existing facility or to replace old equipment, a modular, pre-packaged system designed and built by Grundfos is a great option. Recently, the teams at Grundfos and Hurley Engineering worked to conceptualize such a system that could be integrated directly into the current site infrastructure with minimal additions and at a competitive price. One such modular design was able to come in below budget on a competitive bid making Hurley Engineering and Grundfos winners thanks to their their superior and unique product offerings. Thanks to the flexibility and superior design options, Hurley successfully won the competitive bid process and came in under budget. To learn more click the image below or here.
