Water and Waste Water Handling Solutions for Efficient Water and Waste Water Handling
The specialists at KSB are not simply familiar with waste water — they know it inside out. At this year’s IFAT in Munich (13 to 17 September), the company will present its extensive product range of pumps, valves and systems for efficient water and waste water transport.
Whether in industrial, municipal or domestic waste water applications, the absolute reliability of components is a precondition for the efficiency of the whole process. Pumps, valves, automation products, drives and systems from KSB meet this challenge. KSB also excels in mixing processes, tank cleaning routines, sludge handling tasks and surface drainage applications.
At this year’s IFAT Entsorga, one highlight in the field of waste water transport will be AmaRoc. It was developed as a secure and durable foundation for KSB’s Amaprop submersible mixers with their large, up to 2.5 m in diameter, propellers. The specially designed propeller is capable of absorbing all forces generated by the mixer and of safely transferring these to the foundation of the sedimentation tank. Thanks to this design principle, the guide rail remains unaffected by the mixer forces. The guide rail only serves to keep the mixer in the correct position. As a result of this, pipes up to 12 metres long can be laid. The AmaRoc or “mixer stand” as it is also referred to, is made of NoriRoc, the polymeric composite material developed by KSB. It dampens vibrations and is highly resistant to abrasion.
A further technical highlight is a new pump monitoring unit. The product named PumpMeter comprises pressure sensors as well as an analysing and display unit attached to the pump. It measures suction pressure, discharge pressure, differential pressure and head. The measured and calculated values are shown in alternation on the user-friendly display. A typical pump curve graph illustrates in which range the pump is currently operating. So the pump user will see at a single glance if the pump is operating in an efficient and cost-saving manner or if its availability is jeopardised.
