Chemical Pumps Expansion of Chemical Pump Series
Chemical pumps of the Mega CPK type series of KSB are now available in 55 sizes with more than 78 hydraulic systems. The available materials of grey cast iron, nodular cast iron and cast steel, stainless steel as well as duplex and special alloys, such as titanium and Hastelloy, result in a wide range of applications.
Fluids that require heating or cooling can also be transported. The pumps are primarily characterised by their high output per size and their low energy consumption. The developers placed particular emphasis on good suction behaviour with a low NPSH value in order to minimise the risk of cavitation, thus enabling smooth and stable pump operation even under difficult operating conditions. This should ensure a high degree of reliability and improves the availability of an entire system. By using the finite element method (FEM), a calculation method for the simulation of solids, the developers were able to achieve a high degree of strength and rigidity of the installed components while at the same time optimising the use of materials.
