Ideas: That’s where your benefits start

Top technology and innovative products do not happen by chance. Behind KSB‘s success is the work of many experts who drive industrial Research and Development. Their goal: designing pumps, valves and related systems that save energy and run for years.

From ideas to product

Exceptional products are born from ideas – ideas our engineers develop into pioneering solutions in hydraulics, automation and materials technology. They cooperate with international universities and research institutes in areas of basic research.

Greater energy efficiency, lower operating costs 

State-of-the-art simulation software helps us optimise flow processes in pumps and valves. Our customers benefit from increased energy efficiency and lower operating costs.

Smart automation products minimise our products' life cycle costs and improve their availability. Like PumpMeter, a monitoring unit that plots and analyses load profiles.

The right material for almost every fluid handled

The diversity of fluids handled calls for in-depth materials know-how. In-house labs develop new materials that offer outstanding resistance to abrasion and corrosion. To this end, our materials experts use state-of-the-art chemical analyses as well as metallographic and mechanical examination methods.

Experts researching tomorrow’s market today

Our engineers look far beyond today’s market requirements in the three core areas of our industrial research activities. They anticipate trends and adapt technologies. Future-proof business models are developed within the scope of start-up projects. Like our SALINO® Pressure Center, whose innovative design has opened new prospects for producing drinking water from seawater – economically and efficiently.
