Efficiency comparison pumping system

Thursday, January 25th, 2018 von admin

An increasing number of pumps are now being run using speed control in order to be able to define the dynamic volume flow. The pump’s quadratic characteristic causes the motor load to decrease rapidly at lower speeds, which results in the level of efficiency decreasing significantly. Using the diagrams, it can be seen that the ideal workload for the existing asynchronous motor is not reached, due to operation at partial loads (approx. 30%) and speeds (75%).

If the pump is then equipped with a PMSM motor that has an extended efficiency range including partial load operation, the level of efficiency can be increased by approx. 12% in this example and savings of more than EUR 250 per pump per year can be achieved (depending on the number of hours‘ operation per year).


Green pumps for a green stadium

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018 von admin

Croke Park is a major Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) sports venue located in Dublin that hosts events for a number of sports. Croke Park has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for over a hundred years, it is not only an iconic landmark but also the third largest stadium in Europe.

Since 1884 the site has been used primarily by the GAA to host Gaelic games, most notably the annual All-Ireland finals in Gaelic Football and Hurling. In honour of Archbishop Thomas Croke, one of the first GAA’s first patrons, the stadium was renamed to Croke Park.


KSB: High-efficiency motor with integrated frequency inverter

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017 von admin

Prototype demonstrates potentia: The KSB Group has finished the prototype of a super-compact high-efficiency motor with an integrated frequency inverter. The 22-kW synchronous reluctance motor is a prototype featuring new semiconductor technology that provides completely new cooling management for eliminating heat from power electronics.

By integrating the frequency inverter into the motor, developers were able to reduce the unit volume by over 25 percent compared with the traditional design.


KSB at drinktec 2017 in Munich

Friday, August 11th, 2017 von admin

The focal point of KSB’s presence in Munich will be its four hygienic pump series Vitachrom, Vitacast, Vitalobe and Vitaprime. Thanks to the wide range of variants available with these pumps, nearly all tasks in relation with the hygienic handling of liquid and viscous food can be fulfilled. All pumps belonging to the Vita series have been awarded the certificates common to the industry, such as EHEDG, and their elastomer components conform to FDA standards. The pumps’ CIP/SIP capabilities are also promoted by electropolished wetted components and the use of high-grade stainless steels.

In Munich, KSB Service will showcase for the first time a special maintenance concept tailored to the hygiene-standard requirements of food pumps.


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: 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.
