Complete building services portfolio in operation for the multifunctional building complex of the future.

KSB products are often working away reliably in the background. However, in the case of this particular project, it’s worth taking a look behind the scenes. In Mannheim’s new multifunctional building complex “Das Quartier Q 6 Q 7”, an array of KSB products help to ensure a reliable infrastructure. Over a space of around 153,000 m² in which shopping and residential areas have been created as well as a hotel and restaurants, we have put our entire expertise in building services into practice – from drainage and water supply to heating, air-conditioning, ventilation and fire-fighting water supply.

Welcome cooling for high-volume printing

In order to achieve sustainable improvements in its environmental performance, the web-fed offset printing company WKS Kraft Schlötes implements ISO 50001-compliant energy management. This involves continuously checking all processes for energy efficiency. These checks revealed that the water cooling system of the commercial printing press for brochure printing is an energy-intensive process. KSB won the contract to provide new pumps capable of achieving competitive energy and cost savings.

Keeping cool in the face of sweet temptation

For many people, chocolate is more than just one of life’s sweetest temptations. The complex machinery required for the industrial production of this luxury food item also presents engineers with major challenges. In an ever-tightening market, traditional companies in particular, such as the Ludwig Weinrich chocolate factory, need to rise to current economic and ecological challenges. To do this, they need reliable partners.

KSB submersible motor pumps support cranberry cultivation

KSB unterstützt die Cranberry-Farmer in Kanada

Cranberries gehören weltweit zu den "Superfrüchten" und werden hauptsächlich in den USA und in Kanada angebaut. Kanadas größtes Anbaugebiet ist die Stadt Richmond auf der Insel Lulu Island in British Columbia – und hier leisten eine Reihe von KSB Pumpen sowohl bei der Ernte als auch bei der Hochwasserentlastung verantwortungsvolle Arbeit.

KSB Guard saves industrial park from compressed air failure

KSB ensures that the Kalle-Albert Industrial Park in Wiesbaden, Germany, is reliably supplied with compressed air. Our customer Infraserv and its subsidiary ISW know they can rely on KSB’s expertise: Etanorm pumps equipped with the KSB Guard monitoring unit. They keep the vital compressed air system running reliably and continuously cool the operating temperature.

And KSB Guard has already paid off very successfully: it helped to detect the looming threat of bearing damage at an early stage and prevented major failures.

System incorporating piping, pumps and valves

More transparency – with KSB Guard

Even high-quality pumps can sometimes experience malfunctions whose exact cause can only be determined by a long-term diagnosis. External factors are often to blame, and these can only be identified if the affected pump is monitored over a longer period of time using suitable sensor technology. KSB Guard has been developed to determine a problem’s cause so that remedial action can be taken.

Producing particleboard requires high temperatures – KSB and its high-performance heat transfer fluid pumps make sure the thermal oil used is transported smoothly.

St Petersburg

Submersible motor pumps from KSB lift waste water from a depth of 92 metres in St. Petersburg.

A cleaner Baltic Sea – this was the initial idea behind the waste water disposal project for this millions-strong metropolis. Today, 19 Amarex KRT pumps ensure that up to 98 percent of the city’s waste water is treated in a waste water treatment plant before being discharged into the Baltic Sea.

Palazzo Grassi

KSB makes history efficient!

An old building kitted out with modern technology: KSB pumps and valves for heating, air-conditioning, water and sanitation systems help to save 30 % of energy in the Palazzo Grassi.

Digital tool KSB Guard continuously monitors pumps

KSB Guard performs a crucial task at the world’s largest development and test centre for valve technology, the ROLF SANDVOSS INNOVATION CENTER (RSIC) operated by SAMSON: It continuously monitors the pumps, which were also supplied by KSB. The pumps need to operate smoothly under extreme loads and with irregular operating hours. KSB Guard provides important data and operating information, ensuring that unscheduled downtimes are avoided and pump maintenance can be planned efficiently.
