IFAT 2014 - KSB

KSB 's new variant of the AmaDS³ wastewater pump station.
KSB 's new variant of the AmaDS³ wastewater pump station.

The KSB stand is located in Hall 6, number 321/420.

KSB will be presneting a new variant of its AmaDS³ wastewater pump station. The station is a combination of a patented, dry-installed solids separation system and two wastewater pumps in back pull-out design. A unit designed for installation in confined spaces will now be showcased at IFAT.

The Munich trade fair will also see KSB debut its newly developed permanent magnet synchronous drive for 6 in submersible borehole pumps. Unlike asynchronous motors, this motor type does not require any current in the rotor to generate torque as the rotor field is created by magnets. This eliminates heat energy losses in the rotor and gives higher levels of efficiency than traditional asynchronous motors. A frequency inverter is required for its operation.

The latest design of the series-produced synchronous reluctance motor KSB SuPremE will of course also be showcased.

The KSB SuPremE motor will be presented in combination with the standardised water pump: Etanorm. The type series already meets the EU requirements (ErP Directive) of Commission Regulation 547/2012/EU applicable from 2015.

Variable speed systems such as the new pump drive introduced at Munich’s IFAT allow energy costs to be reduced by matching pump output to actual demand. All sizes have a harmonised design for motors with ratings up to 55 kW. They are available as motor-mounted, wall-mounted or control cabinet-mounted variants and are the only variable speed systems that can control asynchronous motors as well as synchronous reluctance motors. For higher ratings up to 1.4 MW, frequency inverters in book format with IP 20 enclosure are available for installation in a control cabinet.

To represent its comprehensive valve product range the Frankenthal pump manufacturer will showcase soft-seated butterfly valves from the Isoria and BOAX series. Butterfly valves for water transport and treatment applications with a nominal size of up to 4.7 metres are manufactured at KSB’s French factory in La Roche-Chalais and at its location in Burgos, Spain.
