Mississauga, Ontario, February, 2014 – KSB Pumps Inc. has introduced new members of its popular Movitec series of high-pressure pumps. The new Movitec VCI models are designed so that the pump elements (including intake) are immersed in a tank, reservoir or well, while the motor and discharge nozzle remain dry and accessible. This results in a very compact and easy-to-service arrangement. These versatile pumps are ideally suited to applications such as circulation of cooling or lubricating fluids for machine tools, industrial washing and cleaning processes, condensate recirculation systems and pressure boosting in general process applications.
Like other members of KSB’s Movitec family, the Movitec VCI pumps are engineered to reduce energy costs through the use of efficiency-optimized stainless steel stage casings and impellers. Easy-to-replace cartridge-type mechanical seals simplify maintenance and help ensure long, trouble-free service lifetimes, while 3-mm mesh strainers over the intake nozzle protect internal components from large solids particles. These new pumps will be available in five sizes, with different numbers of stages. The maximum flow rate is 27 cubic metres per hour and the maximum discharge head is 250 metres. Fluid temperature can range between -10 and +120 ˚C. Premium high-efficiency motors are available on request.
KSB Movitec pumps are available directly from KSB Pumps or from KSB-affiliated distributors such as Calgary-based Candyne Pump Services.
