Grundfos Pumps in Aquaria KLCC

Overview_TEXT

Overview

After much anticipation, the Aquaria KLCC was open to the public in August 2005. The Aquaria is a next generation aquarium integrating technology,
education and entertainment to enhance the aquarium experience. Computers loaded with multimedia presentations or interactive kiosks
complement the animal exhibits throughout the Aquaria by providing visitors entertainment and information on the marine life. Home to about 5000 land
and marine creatures, the Aquaria features a 90m long underwater walkway making it the largest aquarium in South-East Asia.

The Aquaria is a simulated natural habitat for thousands of marine life. Maintaining a healthy environment for the creatures in a huge aquarium is
vital. The freshwater and saltwater in the aquarium have to be cleaned and chemically balanced constantly for the above reason. The Aquaria KLCC
management chose Grundfos pumps to perform the huge task of maintaining a healthy marine ecosystem.

Pumps for a Tough Job
“The Living Oceans” aquarium is home to more than 3000 sea creatures including Sand Tiger sharks, stingrays, and eels among others. Less than 3
million liters of saltwater fill this aquarium. Grundfos’ SEN submersible pumps are the ideal solution because they can operate on highly aggressive
liquids like saltwater. The impeller of the SEN pump is made from stainless steel for the above reason. The SEN pumps for saltwater application in the
Aquaria are coated with Belzona to protect the pumps from being damaged by the corrosive saltwater.

Saltwater is circulated through a protein skimmer for cleaning and the wastewater disposed using the pumps. The SEN pumps operate 24 hours a
day, pumping out 700 liters of saltwater for cleaning before pumping it back in at any given time.

Another type of pump used for both saltwater and freshwater applications is the CRN centrifugal pump. The CRN pumps are suitable to operate on slightly aggressive liquids because they are manufactured from high-grade stainless steel type 316. The CRN pumps in the Aquaria are mainly used for circulation and filtration of the water. Other than slightly aggressive liquids, the CRN pumps are also suitable for liquids with temperatures between -40oC and 180oC. The pumps are highly efficient in operation. Grundfos’ NK end-suction pumps are used to circulate and filter water in the freshwater aquariums. The NK can be used to transfer liquids having temperatures between -25oC and 140oC.

Grundfos Pumps Malaysia designed a special control panel for controlling all the pumps in the Aquaria. The control panel is made from stainless steel to protect it from damage by the saltwater vapors. Monitoring the condition of the pumps is important because they operate 24 hrs a day. The control panel will detect any problems with any of the pumps and alert the maintenance personnel.
