KSB’s Family of In-Line Pressure-Boosting Pumps is Growing
Mississauga, Ontario, June 2016 – KSB Pumps has introduced a new, larger member of its Movitec series of in-line pumps for pressure boosting applications. The new Movitec 125 can deliver flow rates as high as 192 m3/h and has a maximum head of 128 m. Like other members of the Movitec family, the new pumps are versatile workhorses that can be used in a wide variety of applications including process and manufacturing industries, building services, irrigation systems and food and beverage processing. A range of construction materials, seal types and number of impeller stages are available, helping ensure that customers can find the configuration that is best suited to their specific needs.
Movitec 125 pumps are designed for long, trouble-free service lives. Bearings are lubricated by the pumped fluid and feature ultra-hard tungsten carbide wearing surfaces. The impellers are made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, while the lower body of the pump is a sturdy casting. Easy-to-replace cartridge-type mechanical seals are available to simplify maintenance. Careful hydraulic design has resulted in optimized NPSH values and in an industry-leading 80% efficiency rating. A wide range of fluids can be handled, at temperatures ranging from -20° to 140° C.
KSB Movitec pumps are available directly from KSB Pumps or from KSB-affiliated distributors.
