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.

KSB: New high-efficiency circulators for OEMs

Monday, January 23rd, 2017 von admin

The high-efficiency circulator range Calio SI type series are intended for use in heating, air-conditioning and solar power systems where they facilitate automatic operation with constant-pressure or proportional-pressure control as well as operation with 0-10 V setpoint input or external control via PWM signal in accordance with VDMA-Einheitsblatt [Standard Sheet].

On the HMI, Dual and EcoMatch variants the user can select the required mode of operation via two pushbuttons on the control panel.

KSB: New in-line pumps for building services

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 von admin

Etaline LThe new Etaline L are small close-coupled pumps in in-line design. They are available in 12 hydraulic sizes with motors from 0.12 to 3.0 kW. The pump series covers flow rates of up to 95 m³/h and discharge heads of up to 21 metres.

The cast casings and the mechanical seals are designed for operating pressures of up to 10 bar. The connections at the suction nozzle and discharge nozzle can be either flanged or threaded, depending on the size. A confined O-ring reliably seals the casing, also in fluctuating operating conditions.

KSB: New drinking water circulators

Monday, February 15th, 2016 von admin

160127_CalioTherm_0033The new high-efficiency circulators of the Calio-Therm S NC series are maintenance-free glandless pumps designed for pumping drinking water in closed circuits, which are commonly found in single-family or two-family houses as well as in larger building projects.
Like the other Calio pumps the new circulators offer a high-efficiency permanent magnet motor to achieve top efficiencies. With one-touch operation the flow rate can be adjusted via three speed levels. In the event of a blocked rotor the motor stops automatically, and a fault is indicated. Three LEDs display the operating status. The screwed connections are available in dimension Rp ½ internal thread (EN 10266) or G 1 ¼ external thread (DIN ISO 228). The maximum flow rate equals 0.7 m³/h. The pump’s maximum head is 1.0 m. The drinking water temperature should measure between +5 °C and +65 °C.

KSB: New cost-effective high-pressure pump series

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 von admin

DPHM2-4-RF-HRThe pumps of the new compact, cost-effective Comeo type series are designed for an operating pressure of 10 bar. They are used for

  • water supply,
  • in small pressure booster systems as well as
  • in light industrial applications.
  • Water treatment is another application covered by this pump series.

The stainless steel variant Comeo C is ACS and WRAS approved for drinking water.

DAB: Efficient re-use of rainwater

Friday, May 30th, 2014 von admin

Aquatwin_Top_di_Dab_Pumps_Aprile_2014Combined with rainwater collection systems, the new Aquatwin Top is a pressurisation unit which offers savings in terms of water and therefore energy consumption. The rainwater stored in external tanks supplies all services that do not require drinking water (washing machine, WC…). In domestic applications it is calculated that the daily water requirement is 150 litres per person, in particular due to use of the WC, for cleaning and use of the washing machine, for watering the garden and washing the car. Roughly 50% of this consumption can be provided by rainwater, and the use of this water provides an average cost saving of 50%.

KSB: Software for building services consultants

Thursday, April 10th, 2014 von admin

KSB presented a new selection program called KSBase Consult Building. It enables the simple hydraulic selection of pumps and valves for all important fluid circuits in building services systems and, at the same time, creates the corresponding tender texts. Consequently, it is a program that covers both pumps and valves.

KSB: Motor-mounted speed control system for centrifugal pumps

Thursday, February 13th, 2014 von admin

KSB_PumpDrive_EcoThe latest version of the “motor-mounted” speed control system for centrifugal pumps was designed specifically to cater to heating and air-conditioning applications. The system makes it possible to reduce energy costs by matching pump output to actual demand. The parameters of PumpDrive Eco are set at the factory based on the specific pump and motor data. This reduces the time required for commissioning the unit.
