KBL: A Step towards Food Sufficiency

Thursday, March 9th, 2017 von admin

Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) has partnered for food sufficiency with the Government of Senegal, a country in Western Africa. Before 2005, Senegal’s irrigation infrastructure was under-developed. Government of Senegal was not able to meet the expected food sufficiency levels of the country because of the haphazard irrigation techniques. For achieving better means of livelihood, the Government of Senegal felt the urge to resolve the issue of unemployment among the rural youth and stop their exodus to cities.

The major challenge faced by Senegal was the need for skilled labour. In North Senegal, lack of proper irrigation equipment was identified as the foremost problem. Even though there was abundant water available in the Senegal River, there was no mode to direct it to the fields in sufficient quantities required to irrigate rice. Alongside, South Senegal was grieving over existence of excessive saline surface water for irrigation purposes. The feasible alternative was to tap ground water in order to receive a supply fit for the yield.

Grundfos: How is the pump doing?

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 von admin

grundfos_pressebild_grmWells, waste water treatment plants, water reservoirs, elevated tanks, water distribution networks, collection channels, rainwater retention basins, waste water treatment plants – the water industry operates a complex network infrastructure for water supply and waster water disposal.

The high fixed costs of these infrastructures force those responsible to an intensified view of the variable costs. This can only be done by the energy efficient operation of all technical units, in particular the pump system. The basis for this is the transparency by the recording and analysis of the relevant energy data. However, pumps in small and medium-sized water treatment and sewage treatment plants generally do not operate in the view of a technician. And the distance to a central control panel makes the connection of a cable impossible from the aspect of costs.

Sulzer Extends the High-Efficiency Water Pump Range

Friday, September 23rd, 2016 von admin

smd_small_fullSulzer introduces an extension to the SMD axially split pump range towards lower flows and implements a higher level of standardization for cost-effective solutions and short delivery times. The SMD pump range is developed for a wide range of high-volume flow applications where raw, clean, sea, or brackish water is pumped. Such applications are water abstraction, water transport, desalination, water treatment, supply, and distribution. The pumps can also be used for firefighting, drainage, or distribution of heating and cooling media in residential and industrial systems.

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.
