Wood processing pumps

Wood-based manufacturing demands tough equipment. Ultra-efficient KSB pumps rise to the challenge.

Compared to non-wood products like steel or plastic, wood-based materials use fewer fossil resources, for a lower carbon footprint. But they also pose challenges to the wood processing industry. 

Wood processing demands pumps that can take the heat

Wood processing is a diverse global industry, with outputs ranging from panel or particle boards to wood pellets. Production needs vary: whether it’s drying wood chips, handling wood waste products or transporting auxiliaries like thermal oils, manufacturers need robust, reliable pumps that are built to last, even when the going gets hot.

The versatile KSB Etanorm SYT pump is well-equipped to handle the needs of the wood processing industry.

High-efficiency pumps for the wood processing industry

We offer a comprehensive portfolio of pumps and valves for all wood processing needs. Numerous pumps models, such as our Etanorm / Etaline SYT and HPK-L pumps are built to operate safely at high working temperatures without external cooling. Need to boost safety levels? We also offer options like double mechanical seals, or magnet-driven pumps like the Magnochem.

When it comes to auxiliary agents for your presses, our SYT thermal oil pumps are equipped to handle both synthetic and mineral thermal oils, so you won’t have to choose. 

What’s more, our high-efficiency Supreme pump motors keep your operating costs low and standardised valves, like our bellows-type globe valves BOA-H and NORI 40 range. Enjoy easy replacement every time, with no need to rebuild.
