KSB at BrauBeviale 2018 in Nuremberg

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 von admin

Vitachrom with SuPremE motor, PumpDrive and PumpMeter

KSB Group will be showcasing its comprehensive range of pumps and valves for sterile/hygienic applications and support processes at Brau Beviale 2018 in Nuremberg from 13 to 15 November 2018.

Naturally, the focal point of KSB’s presentation will be the five hygienic food pump type series Vitachrom, Vitacast, Vitalobe, Vitaprime and Vitastage. Because of the large number of design variants the pumps are offered in, they are ideally suited for almost any pumping task in the fields of liquid or viscous food transport. The pumps’ excellent cleaning and steaming in place (CIP/SIP) capabilities are promoted by the almost complete lack of dead volume, the electropolished wetted components and the use of high-grade stainless steels. 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.

Pumps cut power consumption at Palazzo Grassi in Venice

Thursday, August 16th, 2018 von admin

One of the most important museums of contemporary art in Italy, the famous Palazzo Grassi in Venice, is able to considerably improve its energy balance due to the use of pumps with highly efficient, intelligent drives. The pumps and valves to modernise the heating and air-conditioning systems were supplied by pump manufacturer KSB.

For a building of historical and architectural significance, maintaining a particular room temperature and humidity as well as air quality is a costly and major challenge. After a careful analysis of the energy consumption, those responsible for building management started an extensive refurbishment project in 2015. Planning and installing a completely new pumping infrastructure in a historic building presents a great challenge since the building was not designed for such equipment.

Impeller improves suction characteristics in high-pressure pumps

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 von admin

KSB experts developed a special impeller for its Movitec multistage high-pressure pumps. This new impeller significantly improves these pumps’ suction characteristics (NPSH value).

It proves its worth particularly in applications with critical inlet conditions (e.g. boiler feed applications) as well as applications in which the pump is required to take in water from low-lying tanks or at higher temperatures. Under these conditions, a pressure drop in the intake area may cause cavitation to occur in the first pump stage. This can result in excessive wear of pump parts or motor bearings as well as a reduced service life of the pump due to damaged parts and an unbalanced hydraulic system.

The new impeller is offered as an alternative to the standard product.

New app simplifies pump operation

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 von admin

This new KSB app called ‘FlowManager’ can be used to operate and configure the PumpDrive 2 and PumpDrive 2 Eco variable speed systems. It can also be used to adjust the fixed speed of MyFlow Drive to the optimum operating point. The new KSB FlowManager app features all of the familiar basic functions from previous versions of the MyPump Drive app and supports both IOS and Android devices. It is available for download from the iTunes Store and Google Play Store free of charge.

The app’s main functions can be summarised under the terms operation and monitoring.

Suspended pumps with hydraulic system of standardised chemical pumps

Friday, May 18th, 2018 von admin

The Estigia type series extends KSB product portfolio for the chemical and petrochemical industries and other applications. It will be showcased at Achema 2018 trade fair in Frankfurt.

The low-pressure suspended pumps are designed for vertical wet installation in a closed tank under atmospheric pressure. For the installation depth, various lengths ranging from a minimum of 852 mm to a maximum of 6402 mm are available and three discharge pipe diameters can be selected for each pump size.

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.
