KSB Pumps - Innovation of the year 2014 for High Efficiency

Innovation of the year 2014

Magnochem mag-drive pump – great performance.

High output per size meets maximum efficiency: 2014 saw KSB pumps add a new mag-drive pump to its range with the next-generation Magnochem. The standardised chemical pump is optimised to meet the requirements of the food, oil and chemical industries. The innovative type series includes 52 hydraulic sizes and numerous magnetic coupling variants. The KSB pumps are in compliance with DIN EN ISO 2858 / ISO 5199 and are particularly energy-efficient.

Mag-drive pumps are often the first choice for applications requiring the transportation of hazardous, odour-intensive, hot or solids-containing fluids. The new Magnochem mag-drive pump from KSB unites a whole host of innovations: alongside the magnetic coupling’s flexible modular design system and four operating modes, the central positioning of the plain bearings with thrust bearings arranged internally represents a unique aspect of the design which ensures maximum operating reliability. Magnochem can also reliably handle low-boiling fluids such as ammoniac or hydrocarbons. If required, an auxiliary impeller can increase pressure in the critical range and prevent the fluid handled from evaporating.

Optimally suited to all fluids handled by KSB pumps

KSB’s engineers paid special attention to the magnetic coupling design and the routing of the circulation, cooling and lubricating flows. Magnochem’s four operating modes range from basic internal circulation to the so-called “dead-end configuration” with heat exchanger and auxiliary impeller. This allows the pumps to be optimised for the transportation of polymerising, coagulating, crystallising or easily evaporating substances at any time.

Highly durable materials such as titanium or zircon oxide

KSB Pumps As well as corrosion-resistant materials such as the nickel alloy Hastelloy or titanium, zircon oxide can be used for Magnochem containment shrouds as required. This ceramic material:

  • Is highly resistant to corrosion
  • Does not generate eddy currents when exposed to a moving magnetic field
  • Prevents heat losses which reduce the pump’s performance

The magnetic material selected by KSB’s engineers is samarium cobalt, which is extremely temperature-resistant and offers excellent magnetic properties.

The right magnetic coupling for every size

As a rule, KSB can offer multiple coupling sizes for every pump size. This allows the pump’s magnetic drive to be tailored to the performance required. Static and dynamic balancing of the rotor during manufacture ensures that Magnochem pumps experience very little vibration when in operation.

Plain bearings require a film of fluid for lubrication in order to keep friction and associated heat to a minimum and to cool the bearing. An optional leakage barrier provides extra reliability and protects the motor, the robust rolling element bearings and the environment against any fluids which might escape. The space around the impeller is monitored by sensors which ensure that leakage is promptly registered.

KSB pumps Also available in close-coupled design

As well as the conventional models in back pull-out design, a close-coupled KSB Magnochem model with 44 sizes is available for spatially restricted installation locations. The type series’s highest flow rate is 1400 m3/h, at a maximum head of 233 m. The pump’s permissible operating temperature ranges from -90 °C to +300 °C.

Save Energy - Grundfos Pumps

The best opportunity to save energy is with pumps

It comes as a surprise to a lot of people that pumps currently consume 10% of global electricity. However, Save Energy – Grundfos Pumps and pumps also have the potential to save a lot of electrical energy. Pumps actually represent one of the best opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions using existing technology. This is because most pump installations are needlessly inefficient. Now is the time to change that Save Energy with Grundfos Pumps.
If everyone switches to high efficiency pump systems we can reduce 4% of the world’s total electricity consumption NOW.

It is time to Meet the Energy Challenge NOW, and Save Energy – Grundfos Pumps Now.

The Grundfos Blueflux® technology label for Save Energy – Grundfos Pumps

Without precisely the right motor and variable frequency drives (VFD), even the best pump will consistently waste energy. To facilitate simple selection of a high-efficiency pump solution, Grundfos has developed a technology label for the top of the line motor and drives range.

And with Grundfos high efficiency pump motor technology we can reduce the average pump’s electrical energy consumption by up to 60%.

Ground Water

Ground Water is typically between 25 and 10,000 years old. Before it  reaches the aquifer, it has been filtered and exposed to biological treatment on its way through various layers of the ground. Groundwater is therefore  usually of high quality and requires little or no treatment before its consume.

MAGNA/UPE - Grundfos Pumps

The MAGNA/UPE – Grundfos Pumps make up a broad range of small, medium and large circulator pumps fitted with communication equipment and motors with electronic speed control based on permanent magnet (PM) and compact stator motor technology.

The MAGNA – Grundfos Pumps is an innovative member of the Grundfos family of high-quality circulator pumps.

With a MAGNA, you can stop worrying about complicated pump settings. Simply install the pump and leave it on the factory setting, AUTOADAPT (MAGNA only).

The MAGNA – Grundfos Pumps will automatically analyse the heating system, find the optimum setting and then continuously adjust its operation to changes in demand. The result is optimum comfort and minimum energy consumption. In addition, MAGNA pumps are extremely flexible and reliable, and have low noise levels, long life and no maintenance requirements. They are fitted with IR communication and can offer external control and monitoring via expansion modules.


GRUNDFOS MAGNA/UPE pumps are designed for circulating liquids in heating systems in blocks of flats, schools, hospitals, hotels, industry, etc.

These pumps, which have stainless steel pump housings, can also be used in domestic hot-water systems. GRUNDFOS MAGNA pumps are suitable for the following:

Systems with constant or varying flows where it is desirable to optimise the pump duty point
Systems with varying flow-pipe temperatures
Systems where night setback is required.

Features and Benefits of MAGNA/UPE – Grundfos Pumps

Highly efficient,with communication facilities
AUTOADAPT control mode as default setting, suitable for most applications
Integrated differential pressure control (proportional and constant pressure control)
Low noise
High starting torque
Automatic night setback
