Water Supply and Transport

When it comes to water supply and water transport, trust is placed in KSB worldwide

With more and more people to supply, drinking water must be transported reliably and efficiently over long distances. KSB is successfully tackling this challenge – all over the world.

Water supply must be reliable and economical

Pipelines extending over hundreds of kilometres of partially inaccessible terrain, high heads, fluctuating water volumes: These conditions require extensive experience if the right pumps and valves are to be selected. Despite extreme conditions, the products used must provide reliable operation at all times as well as saving energy.

Plant components, stations or treatment facilities, especially those located in the Middle East, are often located far apart from each other and perform unmanned operation. Components used here must meet the highest technical standards
and provide reliable operation at all times – regardless of the loads they are exposed to.

As a full-range supplier, KSB excels in transporting water 

In the water supply and water transport sectors, KSB is a full-liner for pumps, valves and service with decades of experience and in-depth application knowledge. KSB offers you a comprehensive portfolio of high-performance pumps and valves from a single source that are perfectly optimised to work with each other. All KSB products offer long-term efficiency and reliability and require minimal maintenance. This ensures the efficient, trouble-free operation of your system – and can even reduce your costs.

KSB application specialists will also advise you in all project phases to ensure that your system functions smoothly. For example, KSB offers transient flow analysis for pipelines – a prerequisite for efficient operation, especially in water transport. And this is regardless of whether you are dealing with groundwater, rainwater, surface water or drinking water. 

KSB Pumps and valves offer superior technology

KSB products set global standards in terms of quality, reliability and durability. This is because KSB pumps are highly efficient, speed-controlled and optimally matched to fluctuating demand, with pump designs optimised for low life cycle costs. With accessories such as the PumpMeter, you can ensure that your pumps are always operating with the lowest possible energy consumption. Reliable, maintenance-free valves round off the comprehensive portfolio.
