Global fluid management solutions Kirloskar Brothers has taken its Engineering capabilities and expertise to the shores of Nile in Egypt. For over 50 years Kirloskar Brothers has had a strong presence in Egypt where it recently set two major pumping stations on the banks of the Nile River. Kirloskar Brothers envisages great potential in this region and has chalked out a blue print to leverage the business further. The company has set up a mammoth 10,000 sq meters facility in Cairo under its subsidiary SPP Pumps MENA LLC. Through this facility, Kirloskar Brothers will provide value added services i.e. energy audits, system analysis, vibration analysis, on site testing, cost effective refurbishment solutions, maintenance contracts et al. Besides, assembly and packaging of specialized products such as FM/UL firefighting pumping units, pump sets for HVAC, process pumps etc. too will be available.

KSB: Pumps for the world’s most modern coal-fired power plant

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 von admin

LUV, komplett montiert.KSB has been awarded contracts by two Chinese power plant constructors to supply four new-generation boiler recirculation pumps. The pump sets are destined for the two new Chinese power stations: Laiwu in the province of Shandong and Taizhou in the province of Zhejiang.  These power stations are being designed to use twice-heated boiler technology, the only technology of its kind in the world which is capable of handling the highest temperature and pressure requirements for power plant boilers. The boiler recirculation pumps from the LUVAk series are designed for a pressure of 400 bar and an operating temperature of 425 °C. The pumps are driven by high-voltage motors with supply voltages of 6,000 volts and 10,000 volts and a drive rating of around 800 kW.

Lewa: New plunger pump according to API 674

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 von admin

QuintuplexThis new generation of pumps has splitted gear housings. This special feature significantly facilitates maintenance, permitting the use of a fully balanced crankshaft which generates less noise and vibration, thus reducing wear. The power range was also extended with two quintuplex plunger pumps.  The very short design of these plunger pumps is made possible by the special alignment of the plunger and crosshead. These pumps also have high efficiency, low energy consumption, and a long service life.
