A Better, Faster Way to Source Pumps

KSB at EMO Hannover 2013

Contributed by: PumpScout Staff

KSB is a leading manufacturer of pumps and valves for several industries worldwide. This September 16 through 21, the company’s Germany division will display a selection of its comprehensive product range at EMO Hannover. Products featured will focus specifically on machine tool and metal working machine applications with emphasis on this year's theme: “Intelligence in Production.”

Movitec VCI, a vertical, multistage centrifugal pump for handling machine tool coolants and lubricants will be the main focus of KSB’s presentation. This pump can be used in multiple applications, including industrial recirculation systems, cooling water circuits, washing plants and pressure boosting in general process applications. The type series is offered in five sizes, which can all be manufactured with different numbers of stages.

The pump sets are designed for installation on tanks with the pump’s hydraulic system submerged in the pumped fluid; the motor is dry-installed. This design reduces the number of pipes and valves needed while optimizing suction conditions.

The Movitec VCI series pump features stainless steel stage casing and impellers, a compact cartridge-type mechanical seal, and automatic return of small amounts of leakage into the tank. This results in easy maintenance, high efficiency, long service life, and low operating costs.

KSB will also display its latest Etanorm generation –the best-seller among standardized pumps worldwide. The Etanorm generation is available in 43 pump sizes and is useful in a broad range of industrial applications. The pump series is built ahead of regulations and already meets the EU requirements (ErP Directive) of Commission Regulation 547/2012/EU applicable from 2015.

KSB’s SuPremE motor will be highlighted in the ‘energy-saving’ category; it already satisfies the planned IE4 efficiency level to IEC/CD 60034-30 Ed. 2. This motor and its synchronous reluctance principle provides users with technology that can fulfill all future requirements for energy-efficient drives of pumps.

Additionally, the business will presents several products from its valve range, including the SERIE 2000 swing check valve. This valve is ideal for frequency inverter operation, as it features a very low resistance coefficient and opens reliably even at very low flow velocities.
