KEPL has introduced energy efficient BB1 series pump under the model name of KBAD. This new series is designed especially for process industries for various chemical and liquid pumping applications. The “Between Bearing Axially Split Case Pump” is conform to API 610 latest edition.
Mr. Aseem Srivastav, Managing Director, Kirloskar Ebara Pumps Limited said, “The launch of BB1 pumps is stepping a foot forward in the progress path of existing pump options. The journey so far with this product has given us futher insights in the area of pumps and the motivation to come up with such innovations in near future as well”
KEPL has not only developed BB1 range pumps but has also supplied first three pumps to Reliance Industries Limited, Hazira, Gujarat, for Quench Water application in their Cracker Plant. Pumps were designed, developed and customised to suit the site requirement and were supplied in a very short period.
The BB1 pumps are characterised by side nozzle configuration preferred for fluid transfer applications. Its near-center line mounting design makes the KABD suitable for various refinery applications subjected to ISO or API criteria for flammable or dangerous fluids with specific gravity greater than 0.7 and temperature below 200˚Celcius and 400˚Fahrenhite.
