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.


Is your electric motor trying to tell you something?

PR2351_50604Plant and maintenance engineers often seem to have an intuitive nose for trouble, so are able to predict pending problems with machinery and take pre-emptive action to prevent them. It is not the result of magical powers, rather of long experience with plant and machinery. Bill Bertram of motor maker Marathon Electric explains how different motor sounds can be interpretedÖ: “If you walk around a piece of plant that is running, you will hear it making a noise. If you listen carefully you will be able to pick out individual elements within the overall sound. For instance, you may be able to hear a fan whirring, a pump thumping and a conveyor rumbling.”


KSB launches promotion programme for building services

KSB_Etaline_freistehendIn combination with a PumpDrive speed control system, the SuPremE motors designed and produced by KSB satisfy all IE4 efficiency requirements (to IEC [CD] 60034-30 Ed. 2). This makes them a lot better already than what is required by EU law for 2017. In order to make this CO2-friendly technology available without delay for building services systems, Frankenthal-based pump manufacturer KSB is launching a special promotion programme. From 1 October 2013, all Etaline variable speed in-line pumps with power ratings from 0.55 kW up to and including 18.5 kW will be supplied with SuPremE motors instead of the previous IE2 motors at no extra charge.
