The KSB Group is mourning the death of Dr Wolfgang Kühborth. Having served for many years as the head of the Frankenthal-based pumps and valves Group, Dr Kühborth died last Tuesday (31 January) at the age of 92 following a brief but serious illness.

The Business and Social Development Commission takes a thorough look at a challenged world in a report released today. It is called ‘Better Business, Better World‘, and it focuses on how joint action from the political, societal and business spheres is decisive, if the world is to reach the UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Among the key messages are that it is necessary to build sustainable business models around the global issues, if they are to be resolved in a sound and long-lasting way, and that the time for action is now.
“This report is a call to action to business leaders. We are on the edge and business as usual will drive more political opposition and land us with an economy that simply doesn’t work for enough people. We have to switch tracks to a business model that works for a new kind of inclusive growth. Better Business, Better World shows there is a compelling incentive for why the latter isn’t just good for the environment and society; it makes good business sense,” says Mark Malloch-Brown, Chair of the Business and Sustainable Development Commission and former Deputy Secretary-General of the UN.
Chemtech World Expo – February 14-17, 2017 – is one of the largest events for the chemical industry. 600 exhibitors from 20 countries expect up to 40,000 visitors. At the same time eight international conferences and about 150 speakers are offered. In the German pavilion, the German community stand, organized by the VDMA, the company Bungartz will present the concepts of its problem-solver pumps at stand C6A, which also have a high intrinsic safety:
- Wear and corrosion resistant pumps for the fertilizer industry
- Pumps with hydrodynamic shaft seal
- Continuously dry running magnetic driven pumps for liquids with large solids contents
- Cavitation-free pumps with an NPSH value <0.1m
In order to be able to correctly evaluate the operational and maintenance state of a pump, reasonably high levels of technical knowledge and operational experience are required. Training is of crucial importance to ensure engineering excellence and product innovation continue to provide the optimum solutions for applicatons worldwide.
Therefore the Pump engineer training programme was developed.
