KSB ensures that the Kalle-Albert Industrial Park in Wiesbaden, Germany, is reliably supplied with compressed air. Our customer Infraserv and its subsidiary ISW know they can rely on KSB’s expertise: Etanorm pumps equipped with the KSB Guard monitoring unit. They keep the vital compressed air system running reliably and continuously cool the operating temperature.

And KSB Guard has already paid off very successfully: it helped to detect the looming threat of bearing damage at an early stage and prevented major failures.

System incorporating piping, pumps and valves

More transparency – with KSB Guard

Even high-quality pumps can sometimes experience malfunctions whose exact cause can only be determined by a long-term diagnosis. External factors are often to blame, and these can only be identified if the affected pump is monitored over a longer period of time using suitable sensor technology. KSB Guard has been developed to determine a problem’s cause so that remedial action can be taken.
