KSB motors IE5 classified

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 von admin

The KSB SuPremE motor made by the Frankenthal pump manufacturer KSB has been IE5 classified since January 2017. The motor meets the requirements of IE5 (IEC/TS 60034-30-2), the highest of energy efficiency classes for variable speed electric motors; compared with IE4, motor losses are reduced by a further 20 percent.

Unlike conventional synchronous motors this drive is made without any magnetic materials such as rare earths that are categorised as critical raw materials since their extraction causes severe environmental impacts in their countries of origin.

Obituary: Dr. Wolfgang Kühborth

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017 von admin

The KSB Group is mourning the death of Dr Wolfgang Kühborth. Having served for many years as the head of the Frankenthal-based pumps and valves Group, Dr Kühborth died last Tuesday (31 January) at the age of 92 following a brief but serious illness. As a descendant of KSB’s founding family (Klein), he shaped the course of the company’s history, in particular in his capacity as Member and Chairman of the Board of Management of KSB Aktiengesellschaft and in later years as Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “Dr Wolfgang Kühborth was a charismatic entrepreneur,” said the Members of the Board of Management Dr Peter Buthmann and Werner Stegmüller in respectful remembrance of the deceased. “Over a career spanning some 50 years, he greatly influenced the development of the company during the post-war period and steered the KSB Group into a global role.”

KSB: New variable speed system for HVAC applications

Monday, February 6th, 2017 von admin

Etaline pump with PumpDrive Eco

This year’s ISH trade fair in Frankfurt will see KSB present a new 230 V version of its motor-mounted PumpDrive Eco variable speed system. Available for motor ratings ranging from 0.12 to 1.1 kW, this new version has been specially tailored to the requirements of HVAC applications.

PumpDrive Eco features sensorless differential pressure control which comes preset for use with Etaline L. All key parameters relating to pump and motor data are also set at the factory. This reduces the time required for pump set commissioning.

Alongside wireless Bluetooth modules for permanent installation supplied optionally, Bluetooth couplers are now also available. These can be plugged onto the service interface of PumpDrive Eco from the outside. This arrangement improves usability by also allowing communication with systems that do not have their own BT interface. The myPumpDrive app enables users to communicate with the system and make settings via smartphone.

KSB: New high-efficiency circulators for OEMs

Monday, January 23rd, 2017 von admin

The high-efficiency circulator range Calio SI type series are intended for use in heating, air-conditioning and solar power systems where they facilitate automatic operation with constant-pressure or proportional-pressure control as well as operation with 0-10 V setpoint input or external control via PWM signal in accordance with VDMA-Einheitsblatt [Standard Sheet].

On the HMI, Dual and EcoMatch variants the user can select the required mode of operation via two pushbuttons on the control panel.

KSB: Pumps for Vietnamese power plant

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016 von admin

CHTD 7/7, 997095377/800, Auftrag BARH Block II, RohrleitungsfotoKSB has been contracted to supply 22 power station pumps for the new Vietnamese Long Phu-1 power plant. The plant’s two 600 MW units are currently being built by a Russian engineering contractor. The complex is situated 20 kilometres east of Soc Trang city, on the right bank of the Hau River.

Included in the order are six boiler feed pump sets. The main and associated booster pumps are driven by 15,200 kW high-voltage electric motors. A geared variable speed coupling installed between the main pump and the motor varies the speed to achieve different operating parameters. Each pump set has been designed for a maximum flow rate of 1,200 m³/h and a head of 4,400 m. The boiler feed water temperature is expected to be 175 °C. To reduce energy consumption, the seven-stage pumps are equipped with optimised hydraulic systems which have proven their quality many times over.

KSB: New in-line pumps for building services

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 von admin

Etaline LThe new Etaline L are small close-coupled pumps in in-line design. They are available in 12 hydraulic sizes with motors from 0.12 to 3.0 kW. The pump series covers flow rates of up to 95 m³/h and discharge heads of up to 21 metres.

The cast casings and the mechanical seals are designed for operating pressures of up to 10 bar. The connections at the suction nozzle and discharge nozzle can be either flanged or threaded, depending on the size. A confined O-ring reliably seals the casing, also in fluctuating operating conditions.

KSB at BrauBeviale 2016 in Nuremberg

Thursday, August 25th, 2016 von admin

At this year’s BrauBeviale trade fair KSB is going to showcase the youngest generation of its hygienic Vitachrom single-stage close-coupled pump. It now features both the standard connection and, as an option, an 8-mm flexible tube connection for liquid supply to the mechanical seal. With its electropolished stainless steel surfaces and almost complete lack of dead volume the pump is very easy to clean by CIP/SIP. The type series is EHEDG-certified and all materials used comply with FDA and EN 1935/2004 standards. An Atex-compliant version is available.

KSB: Pumps for Brazilian cellulose production

Friday, August 19th, 2016 von admin

August and October this year will see the KSB group supply three boiler feed pumps for a new cellulose production plant located in Três Lagoas, in the federal state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The customer is one of the world’s leading producers of cellulose using eucalyptus plants.

The delivery comprises three HGC pumps, two of which are equipped with 4,350 kW, two-pole 4,000 volt variable-speed motors. The third pump set is driven by a turbine, also rated 4,350 kW. The flow rate of each pump set is around 1,011 cubic metres per hour and the discharge head is slightly more than 1,400 metres. All wetted parts are made of chrome steel.
