Augmented reality supports pump and valve service

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, KSB Service GmbH is, for the first time, presenting its new service concept based on augmented reality. It is all about working with data glasses linked with the Internet, or with a smartphone app. Via these devices users or technicians are guided during their service work by an expert per video and audio. The experts, looking into their screen at their usual service workplace, can assess the situation through the eyes of the person present at the site.

This helps instruct technicians who are not specialised in pumps, for example, to carry out common maintenance measures, step by step. Further, the data glasses can be used to transmit exploded views or screenshots that can then be viewed in the corresponding field.

Up to 33,000 m³/h

Friday, March 23rd, 2018 von admin

In response to the worldwide increase in large waste water projects, KSB has extended its range of large dry-installed waste water pumps. The pump manufacturer has developed an extra 15 sizes to add to its Sewatec pump series.

The maximum flow rate of the largest version will be up to 33,000 m³/h with a drive rating exceeding one megawatt.

An example of these pump sets will be showcased at the pump manufacturer’s trade fair stand at this year’s Ifat in Munich.

KSB puts pumps into the Internet of Things

Thursday, March 15th, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, KSB is presenting a new pump monitoring system called KSB Guard. Networked vibration and temperature sensors fitted directly to the pump make availability at plant level transparent. The system ensures that changes in the operating behaviour of the machine are detected at an early stage, and maintenance work can be better planned, without having to be on site with the pump. Unlike previous systems, KSB Guard is ideally suited for retrofitting. The sensor unit is attached to the bearing bracket or the drive lantern of the pump using a magnet and adhesive, and can be mounted during operation, with no need for changes to the machine. A battery unit, which is also supplied, provides self-sufficient power supply.

Pump acceptance testing – now online

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Ifat trade fair (14 to 18 May 2018) the KSB Group is introducing a trade fair novelty to its visitors: the newly created online pump acceptance testing. When purchasing large pumps, hydraulic acceptance tests and a final inspection are an essential proof of compliance with the guaranteed values. In the past, customers always had to travel to the test facility to witness their purchased pump being tested.

As testing usually takes place at the manufacturing plant, this is a time-consuming and costly trip, especially for international projects or those that are far away. Online acceptance testing is KSB’s answer, developed as a process enabling reliable and standard-compliant pump acceptance testing. The tests conducted are transmitted live via a specially protected part of the Internet. In an online meeting between pump manufacturer and customer, the customer can see the live camera view of the pump in the test facility as well as the characteristic curve measurement during testing.

Self-cleaning tank inserts for waste water tanks

Thursday, February 8th, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Ifat trade fair in Munich, KSB is presenting its ready-to-install self-cleaning Amaclean tank insert. Amaclean decreases the amount of stagnant water in the pump sump and reduces the need for maintenance and cleaning.

In combination with select impeller types featuring in the waste water pumps used, this tank insert eliminates the need for flushing valves. Amaclean’s patented design and gel-coated inner surface prevent waste and fibres contained in the waste water from depositing in and at the lower parts of the structure.

KSB at Anuga FoodTec 2018 in Cologne

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 von admin

In the limelight at the KSB Anuga FoodTec trade fair stand is, among others, the newly developed concept of a maintenance workstation for hygienic food pumps only. The so-called LSA (Life Sciences Applications) hygiene workstation is equipped with stainless steel surfaces, work benches that are easy to clean, and tools and clothing for use in this workstation only. Also, all lubricants supplied are FDA-approved. At the KSB stand in Cologne, such a workstation will be demonstrated by a service engineer performing maintenance work on a hygienic pump live at regular intervals.
