The range includes Sewage pumps, Drainage pumps, Mixers, Agitators, Aerators, Auto coupling and accessories. With this, C.R.I. will provide complete wastewater solutions to handle raw water, sewage, effluent, storm water and processed water in municipal, utility and industrial applications.

    g-soundararajan-at-the-inaugration-of-cri-waste-water-treatment-pumps-2

    • Solid handling capacity upto 165 mm

    Announcing the launch of wastewater pumps with pride, Mr.G.Soundararajan, Vice Chairman – C.R.I. Group said, “The world pump market estimated 42 billion USD, in which waste water pump market is valued at 9 billion USD. Municipal wastewater plants are the major users, contributing to nearly 23% of the end-user market.The other major users are Industries like Food & Beverages, sugar, textile, paint, Tannery, paper & pulp, chemical, pharmaceutical and process industries. The Asia region is considered a key growth market, with China and India topping the list”.

    g-soundararajan-at-the-inaugration-of-cri-waste-water-treatment-pumps-5 The Indian raw and wastewater market is estimated around INR 2000 Crores.The Indian wastewater market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12% during 2016-2021. Rapid urbanization, Water scarcity, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) norms, Industrialisation are the demand drivers that contribute to the market demand. Swachh Bharat mission, smart cities, National River Conservation Plan (NRCP) and Clean River Ganga Mission will further drive the Municipal wastewater treatment industry over the coming years.

    As per the latest Ministry of Environment communication, Currently 62,000 MLD of wastewater is generated in Urban area of India while the capacity for treating wastewater stands at a mere 23,000 MLD.

    Untreated sewage & industrial effluents pollute the surface and ground water which is the main source of drinking water, leading to public health concerns. The per capita water supply currently stands at 188.73 litres/day. A massive 73% of this becomes wastewater, demonstrating the seriousness of the wastewater problem. India ranks an alarming IIIrd position in the list of most water polluted countries based on the deteriorating quality of water ranking.

    By the year 2030, water demand is expected to grow to 1.5 trillion Cu.m.,with supply at about 740 billion Cu.m,leading to a whopping 50% shortage in India.In this scenario, wastewater recycle and reuse is a more economical measure compared to any other, thus increasing the demand for wastewater pumps and treatment systems. According to C.R.I., weak regulatory enforcements and lack of public awareness seem to be the industry restraints. The rapid growth of urban population is creating huge pressure on existing water and wastewater infrastructure.

    Mr. G. Soundararajan further added, ”C.R.I. with its 7 foreign subsidiary companies, 32 branches in India and the strong distribution network available in 120 countries will greatly help to market these products for the growing global demand. Further,the reputation of being a well-recognized brand among MEP (Mechanical Electrical & Plumbing) consultants, STP & ETP (Sewage Treatment Plant and Effluent Treatment Plant), EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) companies, Industrial consultants and contractors with over five-decades of service to the fluid industry, will help us achieve our targets and become a prominent player in wastewater pump industry too”.

    Currently C.R.I. caters on multiple segments such as mining, oil & gas, power & process industries, pharma, food & beverage, HVAC, fire fighting, other Industrial applications, irrigation, buildings and community water supply. Being ready every step of the way and meeting every pumping need before it arises is C.R.I. Pumps with its diversified product portfolio.Addition of this, wastewater range to an already extensive product portfolio is proof of our incessant focus on becoming a quality provider for all fluid management needs.

    FOR A BURNING CAUSE

    With the rapid urbanization of Coimbatore city, the need for every kind of facility has grown manifold in the recent past. More than 10,00,000 people have migrated from the rural areas to the city in the recent years and this has naturally fuel led the need for more concrete steps in infrastructure development.

    BEE’s Energy saving pilot project awarded to C.R.I

    Coimbatore, Aug 23, Monday: CRI Pumps Private Ltd is been awarded with BEE’s Energy saving First Pilot project ‘Agriculture Demand Side Management’ (Ag DSM), launched at Mangalwedha subdivision of Solapur Circle in Maharashtra. In this pilot Ag DSM project CRI pumps would undertake the responsibility of identifying and replacing 3530 old agricultural pumps with Energy Efficient Star Rated Pump Sets, within a span of next 9 months.

    The Central Government of India in association with Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) in an aim to save power upto 40% has decided to replace the old agricultural pumpsets with pumpsets that are fully energy efficient as per BEE standards. The BEE Star Energy Efficiency Labels have been created to standardize the energy efficiency ratings of different electrical appliances and indicate energy consumption. The BEE Star Labels include a Star Rating System that ranges from One Star – least energy efficient, thus least money saved to Five Stars – most energy efficient, thus most money saved. Under this project the farmers will be provided with Energy Efficient Pump Sets (EEPS) free of cost. Agriculture Implementing Agency (AgIA) shall be responsible for dismantling the existing pump sets, procurement of new EEPS, installation, maintenance and repair/replacement. The Repair & Maintenance for 60 months shall be provided at no cost to the farmers.

    Mr.Rajendran, Managing Director, CRI Pumps said “The power crisis in India should be addressed aggressively in the present scenario. Agricultural sector uses over 120 lakh electric pumps, all primarily used for irrigation, consuming 6000 crore kWh of electricity which accounts for 40% of the energy usage. If the 6lakh pump sets used per annum are replaced with fully energy efficient pump sets, it will result in a savings of Rs.2500 crores.”

    CRI Pumps Private Ltd has taken the project for a term of five years. CRI Pumps has committed a cumulative energy saving of 36% over the next five years, which would be monitored by a Third party agency appointed by BEE with the approval of Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd. The total estimated cost of the project is Rs.7 Crore. CRI Pumps won the project, since the other leading pump set manufacturers, could not take up the challenge and promise execution.

    Mumbai, 20 April 2015: C.R.I. Pumps Private Limited,a reputed global player and India’s fastest growing pump manufacturer, now enters the non-metallic high end pipes segment as part of its rapid diversification strategy. It will manufacture uPVC and CPVC pipes, designed with higher durability to provide an efficient pumping and plumbing system, at its two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Gandhinagar and Hosur.

    Gandhinagar in Gujarat that will cater to the western, northern and central markets, and Hosur in Tamil Nadu that will cater to the southern and eastern markets, are expected to commence full-fledged commercial operations soon. The Gandhinagar plant has successfully test-marketed its products with highly encouraging results.

    Announcing the launch of the manufacturing facilities, G. Soundararajan, Vice- Chairman of the Rs. 1,300 crore annual global turnover company, said the foray into pipes segment was not an adhoc one, but part of an overall business development strategy arising out of their five-year VISION 2020.

    Explaining the rationale behind the entry, he said: “As part of VISION 2020, we have fixed on achieving an annual turnover ofRs. 5,000 crore by the end of 2020. To achieve this, we planned to rapidly diversify and add more products to our existing line. Even in an adverse market situation, C.R.I. has grown around 20% compared to the previous year to achieve the highest growth in the organized Indian pump sector in the financial year 2014-15.”

    He added that as part of its diversification process, the first product that the company decided on introducing was pipes. C.R.I., with a clear mission to provide a one-stop fluid management solution, would now shift its focus to becoming a provider of an entire pumping system. The contribution of pipes in the total investment of a pumping system is much higher and even more than double that of the pumpset itself.

    According to Mr. Soundararajan, in the initial phase C.R.I.is investing about Rs.120 crore in the pipe business. Funding would be through internal accruals and borrowings from financial institutions.

    “CRI has a strong marketing network of 4,000 dealers, and nearly 10,000 retailers. Almost all our counters that sell our pumps also sell pipes. This would be to our great advantage from the marketing angle. In addition, C.R.I. also plans to create new distributor channels for promoting the pipes. C.R.I. is a well recognized brand among plumbers, contractors, builders, EPC companies and installers because of its five decades’ long service to the fluid industry. Most of the pipe consumers also acknowledge C.R.I as a quality player in the pumping industry. With this reputation, we can conveniently achieve our targets and become a notable player in the pipe segment,” the Vice-Chairman added.

    From an initial manufacturing capacity of 15,000MTA C.R.I. is planning to expand the capacity in the coming years and with the existing established network target around 10% market share in the years to come.

    The outlook for pipes is very promising in India. The CAGR of uPVC and CPVC are estimated to be around 15% and 30% respectively. The estimated market potential in India for non-metallic pipes is expected to be around Rs.21,500 crore. uPVC and CPVC pipes alone would contribute to around Rs.9,000 crore, and it is into this niche the company is now venturing in the initial phase.

    uPVC pipes are used as riser (column) pipes, casing pipes, plumbing,sewage and drainage pipes. As column pipes,uPVC pipes are used extensively in place of GI and HDPE Pipes for the pumping of ground water in open wells and bore wells. These pipes possess higher tensile strength, UV and chemical resistance and energy efficiency. Further, the pipes have a longer life of upto 25 years and are light weight, maintenance-free and corrosion-free. uPVC column pipes also aid in extracting clear water from bore wells.

    As plumbing, sewage and drainage pipes, uPVC pipes are used mainly for the distribution of potable water and disposal of waste water from residential, commercial buildings, and industries. The pipes are non-toxic and lead-free that makes them safe for potable water. The CPVC pipes are used for hot and cold water applications and also high pressure applications. In addition to this, due to their ability to handle up to a temperature of 200 degree F, the pipes are also used for transportation of chemical and hot corrosive fluids in process industries.

    uPVC column pipes are available from 25 mm to 140mm diameter, uPVC casing pipes are available from 115 mm to 300mm diameter, and the uPVC plumbing pipes are available from 15 mm to 100mm diameter,with all accessories like fittings and solvents.

    The column pipes are provided with patented Polymer Bonded Thread Sink (PBTS) locking system, another innovation from the C.R.I. R&D team. This unique locking system is used as a pipe coupler system to firmly couple the pipes.

    The company expects the demand for plumbing, sewage and drainage pipes to increase manifold as the construction and infrastructure industry was deemed to take a giant leap, thanks to the Central Government’s policy initiatives and urban development programmes. An increase in demand for these pipes is anticipated with a quantum jump in the housing sector.

    The company hopes that in urban areas these durable and corrosion resistant pipes would come as a solution where water is very hard and people have to frequently spend on steel pipes that rust and corrode quickly.

    In the rural sector, the pipes are expected to come as a welcome change to agriculturists, because in the Indian scenario the cultivable area under irrigation is estimated to increase from the present 40 %

The infrastructure thus created in these plants can accommodate increased production in future. The launch of the new Hosur plant will take us a step closer to the targeted pipe market share of 10% in India.
