Rise to the challenge with dependable chemical pump solutions

No matter whether your large-scale manufacturing plant specialises in polymers, petrochemical derivatives, metals, minerals or organometallic compounds, you demand absolute reliability and zero leakage – around the clock. After all, you need to keep production high while working to strict health and environmental standards. Rest assured: We’ve developed our products and services with you in mind.

High-reliability KSB pumps for the chemical industry – day after day

When you’re running a bulk process plant producing competitively-priced chemicals, facility uptime is a major factor that determines your overall profitability. Dependable fluid-handling equipment is essential to keep bulk production processes flowing. This is why our partners in chemicals production consistently turn to KSB.

Find your perfect fit: Our extensive portfolio for bulk chemical manufacturing includes corrosion-resistant, standardised chemical pumps and process pumps, seal-less pumps, and much more.

  • Our MegaCPK is, quite simply, the best standardised chemical pump in its class. Optimised hydraulic components set new standards in energy efficiency, while low NPSH ensures that the pump runs quietly and smoothly.
  • The Magnochem magnetic drive pump series, available in numerous variants, also meets the most stringent customer requirements.
  • The CPKN is ideal for pumping aggressive organic and inorganic fluids in chemical process engineering.
  • And the Estigia vertical immersion pump is available in an ATEX-compliant version.

Reliably handling everything from hot acids to solids-laden lyes, KSB pumps are more than tough enough for chemical industry.

How KSB supports bulk chemical production

We are familiar with the extreme conditions in and around your equipment. KSB’s advanced fluid-handling technologies ensure that aggressive, corrosive and explosive fluids are transported and contained safely. Our expertly engineered pumps offer trouble-free, efficient operation along with low life cycle costs. And we deliver more than rugged, reliable products – we also support you with installation and commissioning, inspection and maintenance. Should repairs ever be necessary, we come to you.
