Pump selection with KSB – for maximum efficiency, right from the start
The selection of pumps, valves and piping plays a major role in making the operation of your system energy-efficient and cost-saving. In this step, the individual components of the hydraulic system are matched to your requirements and to each other. We find the optimum solution for every application, through consultation and meeting with you.

The systematic approach
The best selection result is obtained by following a clearly defined process. All our process steps have been developed and perfectioned through scientific studies, comprehensive expertise and many years of experience. From the analysis report and the selection of individual components right through to an energy-efficient system – we are there for you throughout the entire process.
Step 1: Determining the system structure
The first step towards an optimum pump selection is to determine the system structure. Based on the load profile and the geodetic head we determine how many pumps should be used and in what operating mode. For a variable load profile, adjusting the head to demand by means of speed control can save 60 % of the energy consumed in mains operation.
Step 2: Selection of pumps, valves and piping
Step 3: Selection of motors and automation products
For a proper pump selection, the drive and automation products also play a major role. Our motor concept offers the optimum drive for every system. You can choose the ideal combination of motor and automation product for the specific load profile from our broad product range. Next to meeting your requirements, we naturally take into account the aspects of economic efficiency, resource efficiency and compliance with ErP regulations.
