By September 2014, KSB Aktiengesellschaft, Frankenthal, Germany, will deliver the pumps to be installed in the new combined cycle power station (460 MW) in Wloclawek, 140 kilometres to the northwest of the Polish capital of Warsaw. The order is for the supply of two boiler feed pumps, each driven by a 3,350 kW electric motor.

DEAR MR NAGEL
RECEIVED YOUR SPECIAL ERP ISSUE TODAY AND IT IS AN EXCELLENT TREATMENT OF THE SUBJECT AND IMPACT ON THE INDUSTRY.
ALL THE BEST
In early 2013 KSB will launch its new compact unit for reverse osmosis seawater desalination. The Salino Pressure Center consists of an axial piston pump and an axial piston motor, arranged on a common shaft. Driven by the diaphragm return flow, the axial piston motor transfers its power directly to the pump shaft. Three functions are fulfilled by one and the same unit:
- creating high pressure,
- compensating pressure losses
- recovering energy.
There is no need for a separate booster pump. The entire system runs on a single electric motor and frequency inverter. Compared to conventional energy recovery systems with pressure exchangers or Pelton turbines, this design saves up to 50 % in energy costs.
Servers have become an ever more important part in our daily lives because of the phenomenal growth in web hosting and cloud computing. Server reliability is crucial in sensitive industries like banks, insurance companies, major corporations, as well as for government agencies. Carrier France, a recognised supplier of energy-efficient cooling systems, has been relying on hermetic refrigerant pumps with canned motors made by Hermetic for years.
The market for drive controllers provides customers a wide range of products – some are standardised, others get adapted individually. The combination of a favourable large scale production with the advantages of customer specific adaption can be decisive for a purchase decision.
On 16 February 2012, KSB took over an eighty percent share in Copenhagen-based T. Smedegaard A/S. The company, established in 1942 and with a workforce of around 80, manufactures the type of circulating pump used above all in heating systems. It has two production sites, one in Denmark and one in Switzerland, as well as business locations in the United Kingdom and Sweden.
At this year’s ACHEMA (18 to 22 June 2012) in Frankfurt, KSB will debut the latest generation of its standardised chemical pumps. The new MegaCPK type series distinguishes itself above all by a high output per size and hence very low energy consumption. It is an advanced version of the internationally successful CPK, CPKN and Megachem type series.
The Helix Excel series is driven by EC motors with extremely low current consumption. These centrifugal pumps achieve motor efficiency values according to the manufacturer’s figures that even outclass the limit of the upcoming efficiency class IE4 (acc. to IEC TS 60034-31 Ed.1). As a result, all the future specifications of the new EU Regulation that came into force on 16 June 2011 under the auspices of the European Ecodesign Directive on the energy efficiency of electric motors are far outclassed.
Colfax Fluid Handling has introduced the Allweiler All-Optflow® series of progressing cavity pumps. Applications include waste, wastewater treatment and paper manufacturing. These progressing cavity pumps offer up to 3800 l/min for applications up to 6 bar (87 psi) and move virtually any type of liquid, including fibrous and solid materials efficiently and reliably.
