End of April 2017, KSB, Frankenthal, Germany, extended its product range of compact high-pressure Movitec pumps by a new horizontal version. H(S)I is the new addition designed for horizontal installation.
Rather than being arranged in line as common for this type of pump, the suction nozzle and discharge nozzle are arranged at the 90-degree angle typical for process centrifugal pumps. The discharge nozzle can be arranged on the left, on the right or at the bottom.
This configuration offers OEMs and plant engineering contractors more options of using these versatile, highly efficient pumps. They are ideal for applications such as water distribution, water treatment, cooling water supply, boiler feed and pressure boosting. All wetted parts are made of high-grade stainless steel.
Like the other members of the Movitec family, the pumps of the new H(S)I series are characterised by hydraulically optimised stage casings and impellers. This makes them particularly economical, also with regard to energy costs.
Easy-to-replace cartridge seals facilitate maintenance. They are available in a large range of material combinations, allowing the operator to select the optimum mechanical seal for every application. For a long and trouble-free operation.
The new pumps will be available in five sizes with different numbers of stages. The maximum flow rate is 26 m3/h and the maximum discharge head is 195 metres. The fluid temperature lies between -20 °C and +140 ˚C. Ultra premium efficiency IE5 motors can be supplied on request.
