New KSB high-pressure pump for a powerful performance

German pump manufacturer KSB is launching its Movitec 125 pumps in June as an addition to its current range of vertical high-pressure pumps.

The multistage centrifugal pumps are designed for fluids such as water, coolants, condensate, and mineral oils.

They are well-suited for industrial recirculation and fire-fighting systems, cooling water circuits, and washing plants, as well as for boosting pressure in general process applications.

The efficiency of the new pumps with a full impeller diameter is greater than 80%, and the type series handles flow rates of up to 192m3/h at 60Hz at heads of up to 125m.

The permissible fluid temperature ranges from -20°C to 120°C, and as standard, the new pump sets are driven by two-pole IP3 motors of 15 to 45kW.

Fitted with product-lubricated plain bearings made of tungsten carbide, cast bases, and torsion-resistant pressure shrouds sealed by confined O-rings, the pumps are robust and reliable.

Corrosion-resistant hydraulic components made of stainless steel further add to these qualities, KSB says.

Several material variants and flange connection options provide users with flexibility when it comes to installing and operating the new pump sets.

With standardised cartridge mechanical seals complying with the EN 12756 standard, the Movitec 125 pumps provide simplified maintenance and longer service life.

As an option, the pump can be operated on a frequency inverter and combined with high-efficiency motors to increase the system’s efficiency and match the flow rate to actual demand.
