New System by KSB Puts Pumps into the Internet of Things
KSB is presenting a new pump monitoring system called KSB Guard. Networked vibration and temperature sensors fitted directly to the pump make availability at plant level transparent for the first time. The system ensures that changes in the operating behaviour of the machine are detected at an early stage, and maintenance work can be better planned, without having to be on site with the pump.
Rovatti PTO Pumps for Agricultural Tasks
With increase in the population, the demand for food also increasing. Rainfall does not always occur in right amount at the time when crops need water.

Finish Thompson SP Series of Magnetic Drive, Self-priming Centrifugal Pumps
Reliable, leak-free, low-maintenance pumping has always been essential in many process applications, particularly when ‘challenging’ liquids like corrosives need to be transferred safely and efficiently. Magnetically driven pumps are ideal for these types of duty as they have no rotating
seals to fail so the risks of downtime and lost production are minimised, as are the problems of cross contamination, or wastage of the pumped fluid.
Hybrid Can Feature Enhances Energy-Efficiency of Leak-Free Mag-Drive Centrifugal Pumps
