Intelligent Water Supply Solution for Serving the Changing Water Demand at Constant Pressure

Kirloskar Brothers Limited’s pressure boosting Hydro-Pneumatic (HYPN) system is an intelligent water supply solution ideally designed for residential and commercial buildings, hotels, hospitals, and industries that can serve the changing water demand at constant pressure. HYPN system is a conventional pumping system converted into an automated pumping system.

A HYPN system maintains constant pressure and helps eliminate unnecessary functioning of pumps in case of low flow conditions. Also, the performance of the HYPN system is controlled, smooth, and facilitates energy and water optimisation. KBL’s energy-efficient HYPN system requires low maintenance and its customised configuration and design ensures its long life, making it one of the most cost-effective pressure-boosting systems globally.

An operational standard pump significantly contributes to operational expenditure in two ways: high energy consumption and high spending on pumps’ maintenance. The HYPN system helps curb these associated costs, majorly by optimising the energy cost through greater control on the supply capacity of liquid, varying it as per user or system demand.

KBL has accomplished further value addition by coupling HYPN system with remotely accessible smart monitoring devices such as mobile phone, iPad, among others. As a result, customers can remotely monitor and keep a tab on the status of their system on the go, wherever they are, right on their mobile devices. The remote monitoring option gives customers an edge in two ways: firstly, through its predictive modelling capabilities, customers can take corrective measures before pump breakdown and, secondly, it substantially reduces dependency on field inspectors thus ensuring manpower optimisation.

Most pump manufacturers offer only vertical inline multistage pumps in pressure booster applications. However, site conditions may require a different type of pump. KBL has successfully coupled its pressure boosting technology with a wide range of pumps like inline, end suction, sump pumps, split case pumps, VT pumps, among others. This ensures the most suitable pump being used yielding the best performance over the entire life of the system. This customisation has also enabled the application of KBL’s HYPN system in almost all the industrial verticals right from pharmaceutical and chemical process industries to other critical sectors such as mining, textile, steel, railways, hotels, hospitals, malls, multiplexes, and metro, among others.

KBL is a UL registered supplier of packaged pumping systems. As far as the certifications and accreditations for its HYPN system are concerned, KBL achieved one of its biggest milestones recently when the company became India’s first manufacturer of HYPN systems to be recognised with the prestigious India Design Mark (IDM), a design standard backed by a stringent evaluation process that symbolises product excellence in the form of quality and innovation. The IDM symbol is a befitting testimony to the extensive and dedicated efforts of KBL’s R&D and Design team that went into the development of such a highly usable, durable, and efficient HYPN system.

KBL has a dedicated facility for testing its Kirloskar HYPN systems located at Shirval, Maharashtra. In fact, KBL is among the only few pump companies in the country to possess a dedicated facility for testing HYPN pumps.

The HYPN systems are primarily used for maintaining critical water supply across some of the biggest and dedicated Covid-19 hospital buildings built or set-up for the treatment of coronavirus patients. These included the 551-bed hospital building set-up near Kasaragod, Kerala, the 500 bed Sardar Vallabhbhai Covid Hospital constructed by DRDO at Delhi, the 400 bed District Hospital building at Noida, Uttar Pradesh, and the 800-bed Covid-19 hospital in Pune. In all these hospitals, KBL’s HYPN pumps are operational.
