KSB's PumpMeter clearly shows you whether your pump is operating in its optimum. It measures the suction and discharge pressures of your pump around the clock and establishes the pump’s operating point based on the differential pressure. The direct connection to your process control system allows you to have central access to all relevant data. This helps you decide on where to implement optimisation measures and save.
PumpMeter replaces the pressure gauges upstream and downstream of the pump, the pressure transmitter for the control functions, as well as any additional monitoring equipment.
Optimisation at a glance
For optimum monitoring the easy-to-read display on KSB's PumpMeter alternates between measured and calculated values. After a few operating hours the EFF energy efficiency icon will appear on the display to indicate potential energy savings:
KSB's PumpMeter thoroughly monitors the pumps of the Eta type series and continuously analyses their operating data. The recorded load profile demonstrates where savings can be made:
On the Etaline close-coupled heating pump PumpMeter indicates whether energy can be saved with a variable speed system:
PumpMeter also enables the economical and efficient operation of the Etaline Z in-line twin pump comprising two separate centrifugal pumps in one pump casing:
Pump Operation Check (POC) identifies the best solution for optimised operation
If PumpMeter indicates optimisation potential, then it's worth doing a Pump Operation Check. KSB’s energy efficiency experts use the load profile measured by the pump monitoring unit as a basis and provide concrete recommendations for action to increase the availability and efficiency of your pumps.
