For energy efficient operation, a comprehensive calculation of parameters is required. For this purpose, individual components are adapted to the hydraulic system requirements and coordinated
with each other.
At the calculation stage it is important to select components depending on the unit structure:
pumps, fittings, drives and automation systems. With the perfect interaction of the flow path, motor and automation equipment, as well as pipelines parameterization, energy savings reach 60%!
The highly efficient KSB SuPremE (IE5) synchronous reluctance motor, which can be used for variable speed dry-installed pumps, is of particular environmental importance. It exhibits its best qualities when working at partial loads. It is as energy efficient as permanent magnet synchronous motors, but has undeniable advantages, such as the complete elimination of demagnetization risk, a lower inert mass of the rotor and a higher starting torque, as well as a lower operating temperature. Compared to a permanent magnet synchronous motor, the KSB SuPremE motor is more environmentally friendly. Producing that motor does not require the hard-to-get rare earth metal, the resources of which are limited, and the extraction and disposal of which have a negative impact on the environment.
For the accurate calculation of parameters and selection of equipment, KSB offers three professional software options:
- KSB EasySelect is a comprehensive tool for pumps and pipeline fittings selection;
- KSBase Building Consult is a program to calculate equipment parameters for building services;
- Helps PumpSelection Helps PumpSelection is software for complex water supply and sewerage projects.
