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: 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.

Hapag Lloyd chooses electronic pump control from Colfax

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 von admin

Hapag Lloyd will equip ships of the 13,200-TEU Hamburg Express class and other vessels with the CM-1000® pump control system. The CM-1000 system controls the flow rates of seawater cooling pumps based on the temperature of the fresh water and the current need for coolant. As a result, the amount of seawater pumped into the seawater cooler matches requirements, saving electrical power on board the ship.

WEG: New frequency inverter for decentralised motor and wall installation

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014 von admin

WEG2110_Bild1The MW500 frequency inverter with decentralised design has been developed for space-saving solutions, such as directly motor mounted or adjacent to the motor on the wall. As a result, the need for lengthy cables and switch cabinets is eliminated. MW500 is robust with an IP66 protection rating. It can withstand high overloading of 150% for 60 seconds every 10 minutes, and operate in temperatures up to 40°C (wall installation) and 50°C (motor installation). With increased ruggedness compared to alternative technologies, it provides reliable operation over a long service life. The inverter is designed to operate asynchronous motors in the power range 0.75 to 7.5 kW, and is offered as three variants for a mains voltage of 380 to 400V (A: 1.1 to 1.5 kW, B: 2.2 – 4 kW and C: 5.5 – 7.5 kW), and for 200 to 240V, as variant A (0.75 to 1.1 kW). It is ideal for many pump applications.

Mitsubishi: IP55 variant added to inverter series

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014 von admin

8-1_Mitsubishi_SPS2014_FR-A846_Next_GenerationMitsubishi Electric has added dust and splash-proof versions with an IP55 protection rating to its FR-A800 series of frequency inverters. Specially designed for harsh environments and tailored to the requirements of pumps, the drives are highly robust and ideally suited for use in industrial and commercial building automation systems as well as in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.  The new FR-A846 series with an IP55 protection rating represents Mitsubishi Electric’s latest drive technology in the output range from 400 watts up to 160 kW. The drive’s EMC filter built in as standard ensures full compliance with the EMC Directive (EN 61800-3, 1st environment, category C2) while its DC reactor – also built in as standard – ensures full compliance with IEC 61000-3-12 for reducing and limiting harmonic currents so that separate certification is not required. The FR-A846 also has a built-in main switch version with locking option.
