SES System Efficiency Service

SES System Efficiency Service

Increasing the economic efficiency of your pumping system through comprehensive system analysis

Pumps that are not optimally matched to the system consume too much energy. Thanks to SES System Efficiency Service from KSB, this doesn’t have to be the case.

The system analysis that provides full transparency for your system

Operating a hydraulic system reliably and efficiently requires knowledge and understanding of how the system is actually behaving. SES System Efficiency Service for pumps and systems offers you detailed insights into your pump installation which serve as a basis for optimising the energy efficiency of your pumps and systems. This saves energy costs and reduces CO2 emissions.

This is how SES System Efficiency Service works:

A data logger takes measurements on site and records process variables and vibration levels to determine your pumps’ operating behaviour. A mobile device is used to measure the effective power in the control cabinet in order to determine the pump’s efficiency and to assess deviations, such as those arising from wear. This allows KSB to determine the actual load profile of your pumps and compare this with the design conditions. The aim is to identify potential savings and causes of any damage.

Optimum energy savings in pumps and systems

After measurement and analysis with SES System Efficiency Service, you are given a detailed overview of the current energy efficiency of your pumps and systems. On this basis, KSB makes recommendations for increasing energy efficiency. As well as making the operation of your pumps and valves more sustainable, this also significantly lowers their life cycle costs. The economic efficiency and availability of your system are thus increased and the energy objectives set out in ISO 50001 achieved.

Regardless of the type of installation (dry/wet) and manufacturer, system analysis can be performed for all pumps from ratings of 30 kW. Measurements can also be carried out in potentially explosive atmospheres.
