KSB Extends Range of Etabloc Series Pumps
Mississauga, Ontario, February 2015 – KSB’s popular Etabloc family of pumps has acquired new members, including a new model rated for use with motors of up to 110 kW. Etabloc close-coupled single-stage centrifugal pumps feature high-efficiency hydraulics for reduced operating costs and an extremely compact design that makes them easy to fit into tight situations. They are well-adapted for use in a wide range of applications, including irrigation, drainage and water supply systems, cooling water supply, HVAC systems and fire-fighting equipment. With appropriate material choices, they can be used to pump anything from drinking water to seawater, brackish water, oil or cleaning agents.
Etabloc pumps are available in a wide range of sizes, with capacities up to 715 cubic metres per hour and heads up to 144 metres. They can be ordered with 2-, 4- or 6-pole motors. This wide choice of sizes, running speeds and capacities means that it is usually possible for users to select a pump with a best efficiency point (BEP) very close to their required duty point. Impeller trimming and variable frequency drives can be used to fine-tune performance for optimal efficiency. Total lifetime cost is also reduced by carefully thought-out design features that ensure smooth running and simplify routine maintenance operations.
