KSB: New variable speed system for HVAC applications

Monday, February 6th, 2017 von admin

Etaline pump with PumpDrive Eco

This year’s ISH trade fair in Frankfurt will see KSB present a new 230 V version of its motor-mounted PumpDrive Eco variable speed system. Available for motor ratings ranging from 0.12 to 1.1 kW, this new version has been specially tailored to the requirements of HVAC applications.

PumpDrive Eco features sensorless differential pressure control which comes preset for use with Etaline L. All key parameters relating to pump and motor data are also set at the factory. This reduces the time required for pump set commissioning.

Alongside wireless Bluetooth modules for permanent installation supplied optionally, Bluetooth couplers are now also available. These can be plugged onto the service interface of PumpDrive Eco from the outside. This arrangement improves usability by also allowing communication with systems that do not have their own BT interface. The myPumpDrive app enables users to communicate with the system and make settings via smartphone.

The distinctive feature of the transformation was the customized adaptation of the pumps to the existing plant and its vessels. The pumps were designed for easy installation in the existing tank (with a diameter of 500 mm). The customer, a Swiss fine chemicals manufacturer, thus saves the costly, time-consuming conversion of the existing systems in its production plant.

CHTD 7/7, 997095377/800, Auftrag BARH Block II, RohrleitungsfotoKSB has been contracted to supply 22 power station pumps for the new Vietnamese Long Phu-1 power plant. The plant’s two 600 MW units are currently being built by a Russian engineering contractor. The complex is situated 20 kilometres east of Soc Trang city, on the right bank of the Hau River.

Included in the order are six boiler feed pump sets. The main and associated booster pumps are driven by 15,200 kW high-voltage electric motors. A geared variable speed coupling installed between the main pump and the motor varies the speed to achieve different operating parameters. Each pump set has been designed for a maximum flow rate of 1,200 m³/h and a head of 4,400 m. The boiler feed water temperature is expected to be 175 °C. To reduce energy consumption, the seven-stage pumps are equipped with optimised hydraulic systems which have proven their quality many times over.
