Optimum functioning and maximum reliability are crucial, not only to ensure smooth processes but also to protect people and the environment.
To process crude oil safely and efficiently all components have to be absolutely reliable. KSB takes utmost care to meet this criterion, particularly when it comes to process pumps and valves used in refineries.
KSB pumps and valves are matched to:
- Extreme temperatures
- Highly volatile hydrocarbons and highly viscous fluids
- Aggressive fluids containing gas, solid particles or abrasive substances
