The pumping and processing of industrial wastewater presents a range of challenges. To minimize the risk of issues arising from corrosion and wear, it’s critical to install pumps that offer reliable, long-lasting performance.
KSB is one of the top names in the world of wastewater pumps. Their systems are found in a wide variety of industrial applications, including pulp, paper, steel, textile, food, and municipal wastewater plants. KSB’s wastewater pumps are designed to provide exceptional protection against corrosion and wear from abrasive materials. Some common applications include:
- Cooling water supply (energy generation)
- Lime water
- Wastewater and stormwater treatment
- Wastewater and stormwater collection and transport
- Process wastewater transport and treatment
KSB wastewater pumps are engineered for performance and constructed from high-grade wear- and corrosion-resistant materials, such as cast iron, stainless steel (duplex steel), and white cast iron. Because industrial wastewater is typically highly corrosive and abrasive, it’s imperative to use pumps manufactured with specialized materials that can provide trouble-free operation for the life of the pump.
Below are some of the pump lines from KSB specifically designed for wastewater transport and treatment:
KSB’s Amarex line of submersible motor pumps are built to prevent impeller clogging and optimize energy efficiency. They are available with a variety of material and mechanical seal variants to suit the processing of different corrosive fluids. The non-toxic, environmentally friendly oil fill offers continuous lubrication of the mechanical seal for dependable operation.
KSB’s line of Sewatec dry-installed volute casing pumps can be installed horizontally or vertically. Depending on your pumping needs, multiple impeller options exist, including free-flow, single-channel, multi-channel, or diagonal single-vane. An ATEX-compliant version of the Sewatec pump is also available for certain applications.
Last but not least is the Amacan line of pumps from KSB. The Amacan line are wet-installed submersible motor pumps specially designed for installation in discharge tubes. Mixed-flow and single-stage impeller options are available, along with an ATEX-compliant version.
It’s easy to see why KSB pumps, valves, and components are used in wastewater applications all over the world. Their innovative designs, quality materials, and dependable operation make them a leading choice in many industries.
