Become even more flexible with reliable pump solutions

Batch processing of performance chemicals requires a tremendous degree of flexibility. Whether your custom manufacturing plant specialises in elastomers, industrial gases, or agrochemicals, your operating cycles are always short and intense, and must run without a hitch. What’s more, you need to keep quality high while protecting employees and the environment. That’s a lot to manage, right? Don’t worry: We’ve developed our products and services for more peace of mind.

High adaptability for high quality – batch after batch

For custom manufacturing plants producing high-value speciality chemicals, flexible and dependable fluid handling ensures profitability. Plants need reliable pumping equipment that will support a wide variety of workflows. For these reasons, KSB’s world-class products are the perfect fit for performance chemical processes.

Have a look, find your match: Our extensive portfolio for speciality chemical manufacturing includes corrosion-resistant, standardised process pumps, seal-less pumps, high-pressure pumps, and much more.

  • A clear leader, our MegaCPK is the top standardised chemical pump in its class. Optimised hydraulic components set new standards in energy efficiency, while low NPSH ensures smooth and quiet operation.
  • The Magnochem magnetic drive pump series, available in many different variants, also meets your most stringent requirements.
