Condensate can be a real problem when it cannot be removed by a natural gravity fall. For example, due to the location, kitchen cupboard layout or doorway preventing straightforward access to a drain; a condensate pump, such as the Grundfos CONLIFT, provides an easy and convenient solution.
The Grundfos CONLIFT family comprises of just 2 models; the CONLIFT1 and the CONLIFT1 LS. Their advanced design means they will operate automatically when condensate enters the collection tank from an appliance. The units then lift the condensate up to 5m in height and across a distance of several metres to the required drainage point.
Another plus is that these units require minimal maintenance. The motor/pump unit can turn 180o on the tank which increases the flexibility of the installation process, a situation which is enhanced by the four symmetrical inlets that means the unit can be connected from any direction. Both variants are supplied with an integrated NC/NO contact and cable so that if the overflow switch detects a high-water level, this can be used to switch off the boiler.
Thanks to the modular system, both options can be upgraded with either an alarm PCB and/or neutralisation unit which can be retrofitted in case changing conditions require this flexibility.
