Refreshments by KSB – economical all-round solutions for the beverage industry

KSB pumps are optimally matched to the requirements of sterile process engineering and ideal for the various processes of beverage production. A good example is the production of beer. KSB matches each transport task with an optimum pump, from the central brewing process right through to the diverse auxiliary and cleaning processes.

Breweries use KSB products for water treatment, in the brewhouse, in the fermentation or filtration cellar, in the filling plant and for CIP/SIP routines. Like in all industries, efficiency is a must: Full transparency can be provided by fitting Vitacast and Vitachrom pumps with a PumpMeter. This allows you to keep an eye on all key parameters. The pumps can be automated with a PumpDrive to make sure they run in an efficient operating mode. That aside, all pumps are optimally matched to the system they are used in.

FAMIX, Locher and KSB – triple strength for pure enjoyment

Renowned plant engineer FAMIX developed and built a new production facility for the Locher brewery in Appenzell. With competent on-site consultancy, long-standing experience and tailor-made special solutions KSB ticked all the boxes as a partner for this project.
