Regardless of whether you want to plan building services systems, select waste water pumps or manage your own personal project – we will provide you with a step-by-step approach to find the optimal solution for selecting KSB pumps and valves that are just right for you. The pump selection logic forms the basis for every system that works with pumps and valves and is a prerequisite for selecting the correct pump. Several criteria must be taken into account during the planning stages to ensure an ideal result.

The way in which a pump selection calculation is made can be best explained using an example, such as one involving a circulator. The following steps must be carried out to select just such a pump:

  1. Determine the head of the pump. The pump head is the power output transmitted by the pump to the fluid handled.
  2. Calculate the flow rate of the pump. The flow rate is the useful volume flow delivered by the pump.

The pump characteristic curve is then calculated from these factors, which you can use to select pumps. Another important aspect of selecting the right pump is the efficiency, or pump power output in relation to pump input power. Selecting a circulator requires elaborate calculations that the KSB EasySelect pump selection software can conveniently perform for you.

Where will the pump be used? What will be pumped and at what pressure? Complete a pump configurator by specifying the exact field of application, pump efficiency, pump output, operating point and operating conditions, and price or energy costs, among other criteria.

Selecting the correct pump is paramount to ensure ideal energy efficiency. To this end, planning software applications from KSB allow you to select the most efficient pump for a particular application in advance.
