The new MegaCPK type series, an improved version of the CPK, CPKN and Megachem series, has a high output per size and very low energy consumption. At identical operating data and conditions the user can select smaller pump sizes, when compared with previous generations and competitor products. This will not only save energy during operation but will also reduce initial investment costs.In order to minimise the risk of cavitation, KSB's pump has good suction behaviour at a low NPSH value and can run quietly and smoothly under tough operating conditions. Due to finite element analysis (FEA), a calculation method for structural simulation, it is possible to increase the pump sets’ rigidity. The pump also features an optimised single-piece bearing bracket, easy-to-service mechanical seals, fully confined casing gaskets and minimal axial thrust. As with all KSB industrial pumps, the impeller diameter is matched precisely to the operating point, to help reduce energy required.For special applications, a range of models and material variants are available, making it possible for the pumps to transfer fluids that require heating or cooling. Achema takes place from 18-22 June 2012 in Frankfurt, Germany.
