Waste Water Applications

Reliable transport of waste water and flood water with KSB products

Wherever people live or work, waste water is produced, and reliable systems must be in place to ensure it is removed and cleaned. Only then can it be returned to the natural water cycle.

With its waste water pumps and valves KSB is perfectly positioned to serve waste water applications

Waste water and sewage pose high challenges for systems, components and materials. Pumps can clog and the risk of failure is high. This is precisely what operators cannot afford: A malfunction not only jeopardises economic efficiency, but also operating reliability. This calls for absolutely reliable waste water pumps and valves that are dependable, energy-efficient and generate low operating costs.
When it comes to flood control, special requirements apply. The pumps employed must be ready for use immediately, even after prolonged periods of standstill.

As the market leader, KSB is the right partner to turn to for trouble-free and efficient system operation. KSB supplies pumps and valves for waste water applications that work reliably and efficiently even under the most difficult conditions – whether in waste water treatment, waste water disposal or flood control.

Waste water pumps and valves from KSB are expertly designed for the fluid handled and the application. High-quality components ensure flawless operation at all times – even under conditions as tough as those found in industrial waste water applications. 
In addition, decades of experience and extensive application knowledge make KSB the ideal partner for system optimisation, while the company’s leading role in research and development ensures the high quality of KSB products and services. This enables you to operate your waste water system reliably, with minimal maintenance and low life cycle costs.
Comprehensive advice and excellent worldwide service round off KSB’s portfolio.
