Next to other pumps for water extraction applications, the KSB Group will present its new UPA S 200 submersible borehole pump at this year’s Ifat trade fair from 7 to 11 September 2020. This type series has been designed for water supply, irrigation and groundwater management as well as pressure boosting applications.
Thanks to their optimised hydraulic design, pumps of this type achieve very high levels of efficiency. The wear-resistant design with metal casing wear rings and silicon carbide bearings keeps energy consumption to a minimum for many years, even in the case of high sand contents in the fluid handled.
When the pump is combined with high-efficiency motors of the UMA-S type series and variable speed control, energy costs can be further reduced considerably.
For operation without a frequency inverter, the impeller diameter is trimmed with millimetric precision. This is how characteristic curves are individually adjusted to the demand and excessive power consumption is prevented for fixed-speed operating modes.
UPA S 200 will initially be launched on the market as an 8-inch pump. It will be available in 4 different hydraulic sizes. Its optimum flow rates range between 40 and 160 m³/h; its maximum head is 400 metres. All cast components are made of high-grade stainless steel 1.4408 or, optionally, 1.4517.
UPA S 200 is certified for drinking water to ACS (French drinking water certification) and meets the requirements of the German Environment Agency.
