KSB: New impeller combines reliability and efficiency

Monday, March 14th, 2016 von admin

KSB_DFmax-Laufrad_01The newly developed free-flow impeller for waste water pumps will be the trade fair highlight showcased by KSB at this year’s Ifat in Munich. The F-max impeller now incorporates different distances between its blades, which are arranged in groups with two small and two large distances. Thanks to this asymmetrical blade arrangement, the F-max offers impressively wide free passages ensuring that even larger rigid solids pass easily and are reliably handled by the pump.

A further focus for KSB’s engineers when designing the blades was their ability to create a swirl in the hub area. This swirling effect shifts fibres away from the impeller hub and transports them to the outside.

KSB: Hot water recirculation pump without external cooling

Friday, May 23rd, 2014 von admin

KSB_HPK-L (2)Early in June 2014, KSB will launch a new generation of hot water recirculation pumps for large industrial heating systems as well as forced circulation boilers and district heating systems. The horizontal, radially split single-stage volute casing pumps feature a back pull-out design. Their ratings and dimensions comply with ISO 2858; with regard to handling hot water, organic or synthetic heat transfer fluids, they also meet the technical requirements of ISO 5199.  The HPK-L pump series, which comes in 49 different sizes, can be operated at temperatures of up to 400 °C without any additional cooling devices, and is designed for pressure classes of up to PN 40. This temperature resistance is achieved by means of a generously sized heat barrier which separates the pump set’s hot operating section from the air-cooled mechanical seal chamber.

S-tube offers a combination of high efficiency and reliable operation

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012 von admin

In addition to the combination of a closed impeller with large free passage and high efficiency, the pump is fitted with the energy-efficient Grundfos blueflux motor technology, and thus, it already meets the efficiency requirements that are expected to be introduced for wastewater pumps in the coming years. In addition, great thought has been put into the design to ensure that the pump is easy to service. When you combine the Grundfos wastewater pumps with Grundfos’ control and surveillance systems, you end up with the intelligent, Autoadapt, which automatically ensures optimum operation, even under changing conditions.

KSB at Ifat: Pumps for a green London

Friday, April 27th, 2012 von admin

KSB is set to supply four 52-tonne waste water pumps for the construction of the Lee Tunnel in London. Each of these pumps will feature an impeller measuring 2.2 metres in diameter. At this year’s IFAT trade fair in Munich (7 to 11 May), KSB will be presenting one of these giant impellers as a special highlight at its stand. A total of six pump sets including two smaller drainage pumps will be installed in a shaft structure 85 metres below the Beckton Sewage Treatment Works in London – Britain’s largest waste water and sewage treatment plant – and used to transport combined stormwater and sewage.
