Indian pump manufacturer, Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL), has recently received renewed certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) Star Rating for the 320 and 45 models of its submersible pump sets, respectively.
The BIS certification is an indicator of KBL’s trusted product and service quality. Meanwhile, the BEE star rated pumps result in power and energy bill savings, and the certification shows KBL’s continued commitment to energy-efficient pumping solutions.
These water and oil-filled bore-well submersible pump sets are mainly used in the agriculture and domestic user sectors. The pump sets are suitable for bore-wells ranging 4–8 inches in size.
BIS is a central body responsible for standardisation, marking and quality certifications of goods. The Product Certification Schemes of BIS are aimed at providing third party assurance of quality, safety and reliability of products to the customer. BEE ratings are issued by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), an Indian government agency under the Ministry of Power. The BEE star ratings help consumers understand the level of energy efficiency of the appliances.
