KSB launches a compact, high-pressure pump for horizontal installation
KSB Aktiengesellschaft has launched a new compact high-pressure pump for horizontal installation in plant engineering applications.
H(S)I is the latest addition to KSB’s compact high-pressure Movitec pumps range. Unusually for a compact high-pressure pump, the suction nozzle and discharge nozzle are arranged at a 90-degree angle more typical for process centrifugal pumps. The discharge nozzle can be arranged on the left, on the right, or at the bottom, a configuration which offers OEMs and plant engineering contractors more options for using these versatile, highly efficient pumps.
According to KSB, the new pumps are ideally suited to applications such as water distribution, water treatment, cooling water supply, boiler feed and pressure boosting.
All wetted parts are made of ‘high-grade’ stainless steel. Like other members of the Movitec series, H(S)I pumps are characterised by ‘hydraulically optimised’ stage casings and impellers, which KSB claims makes them more economical and also reduces energy costs. To enable operators to select the most appropriate mechanical seal for a specific application, the seals are available in a range of material combinations and are easy to replace.
H(S)I series pumps are available in five sizes with different numbers of stages. The maximum flow rate is 26 m3/h and the maximum discharge head is 195 metres. The fluid temperature lies between -20 °C and +140 ˚C. Ultra premium efficiency IE5 motors can be supplied on request.
