KSB: Mobile app brings Industry 4.0 to all pumps

Friday, May 15th, 2015 von admin

KSB_Sonolyzer_001The KSB Sonolyzer app is based on an algorithm that has been integrated in PumpMeter units for five years now, of which well over 30,000 have already been sold.
The smartphone-based application does not require knowledge of the individual characteristic curve or any additional technical data of the pump set to be measured, however, and can also be used with pumps from other manufacturers. Users can utilise the app to determine the load at which each centrifugal pump driven by a fixed-speed asynchronous motor is being operated. The following data must be entered for this purpose: the motor rating, the rated motor speed, the head and the flow rate of the pump. This information can be read from the name plate affixed to every pump.

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.

KSB: New powerful in-line pumps for building services applications

Monday, February 10th, 2014 von admin

KSB_Etaline“Energy-efficiency was the development engineers’ number one focus” as KSB annouced.”They worked intensively with CFD (computational fluid dynamics) for flow simulation to optimise the hydraulic shape of suction elbow, volute casing and impellers. All pump sets now meet the requirements of the ErP Directive, effective as from 2015, and their suction characteristics exceed those of the previous pump generation.”

The new Etaline type series comprises 22 pump sizes and its maximum motor rating is 55 kW. The maximum flow rate is 700 m³/h with the maximum discharge head possible being 95 metres.

Siemens introduces new cabinet inverter for pumps

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 von admin

IDT2013104098-01_300dpiWith the Sinamics G120P Cabinet, Siemens Drive Technologies Division is now able to provide an inverter cabinet unit especially adapted to pumps, fans, and compressors. The power spectrum of the existing Sinamics G120P series is thus extended to 200 kW. In line with the Integrated Drive Systems strategy, the drive is optimally adapted to operation with Simotics severe-duty and flexible-duty motors. For example, the inverter output currents have been adapted to the motor rated currents and the motors to the rated pulse frequencies of the inverters. Because the components interact as an integrated drive system, the voltage is optimally utilized and the noise level of the motor is also reduced by 4 dB. The efficiency of the overall system is 98 percent. The new inverter also has application-specific functions that enable economical operation of pumps.

DAB: Evosta Circulator adapts to any space

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 von admin

dabWith Evosta, this Italian manufacturer completes the Evo series ranging from Evotron to Evoplus. This version is specifically designed for the needs of heating systems and adjusted on basic needs. Primarily conceived for residential applications, given its small size and peculiar characteristics, the youngest of the Dab family is the new entry of the electronic series – a single product that is an alternative to a wide range of products on the market, with a pressure from 4 to 7 meters, available with different system connection configurations. Evosta, created to offer maximum versatility, is perfectly interchangeable with the previous traditional 3-speed circulator series.
