Hermetically Sealed All-Ceramic Chemical Pump by Bungartz
The centrifugal pump of type MPCV has some exceptional properties. Due to the dry-running, self-regulating and hermetically sealed design, the tried-and-tested vertical pump does not require a minimum volume flow or a large static head. The 3-phase compatible and intrinsically safe special pump is now also available as an all-ceramic version (K-MPCV-AN).
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.
