Complete portfolio Gebouwentechniek in bedrijf

KSB-producten werken vaak bebrouwbaar op de achtergrond. Bij dit project is het echter de moeite waard om een kijkje achter de schermen te nemen. In het nieuwe, multifunctionele gebouwencomplex ""Das Quartier Q 6 Q 7"" in het Duitse Mannheim, draagt een reeks KSB-producten bij aan het behoud van een betrouwbare infrastructuur. Op een oppervlak van ca. 153.000 m² waar winkels, woningen, een hotel en een restaurant zijn gerealiseerd, hebben we onze volledige expertise op het gebied van gebouwentechniek in de praktijk gebracht: van wateraf- en toevoer tot verwarming, koeling, ventilatie en bluswatertoevoer.

System incorporating piping, pumps and valves

More transparency – with KSB Guard

Even high-quality pumps can sometimes experience malfunctions whose exact cause can only be determined by a long-term diagnosis. External factors are often to blame, and these can only be identified if the affected pump is monitored over a longer period of time using suitable sensor technology. KSB Guard has been developed to determine a problem’s cause so that remedial action can be taken.
