The PumpDrive 2; a self-cooling variable frequency drive that can be motor or wall/cabinet mountable , allows you to reduce your pump’s energy consumption proficiently. The system comes ready for operation, pre-parameterized to the pump and motor, with adjustability possible. PumpDrive 2 adjusts the rotational speed of the motor – and with that the pump’s flow rate and head – to match current demand to keep on the best efficiency levels.

The PumpDrive R, a variable frequency drive that enables you to reduce your pump’s energy consumption. The inverter comes ready for operation, pre-set to the pump and motor.

Our SES System Efficiency Service will show you ways to increase the energy efficiency of your pump systems and prolong their service lives. Whatever the application - energy, industry, water or waste water - by recording extensive measurement data it is possible to evaluate the operation of a system and identify potential savings (energy efficiency analysis) as well as any causes of damage (damage analysis).

KSB newest generation Amarex KRT submersible motor pumps. The KRT is used for handling all kinds of municipal and industrial wastewater. The new design will cover a maximum flow rate of 44,380 GPM and highest head of 394 FT. With up to 1140 HP, it offers the highest motor power available on the market as standard.

Better reliability, lower cost of maintenance and flexible design.

Wet-installed, submersible motor pump with axial propeller in ECB design for installation in discharge tubes, single-stage, single-entry, explosion protection to ATEX II G2 T3.

  • Conquering The Clog: Overcoming Grease, Rocks, Rags, And Oils

    Lloyd Knauer, maintenance and operations supervisor and a 23-year veteran for the Valley Forge Sewer Authority, helps explain why life is easier these days at his regional treatment plant, in large part to their non-clog pumps.

  • Upgraded Pumping System Eliminates Clogging

    The pumps that operated at the septage receiving wetwell at the Valley Forge Sewer Authority’s collection system in Phoenixville, PA were constantly clogging.

  • KSB Maintenance Event- Operations Challenge 2018

    This year marks the 30th year of the Operations Challenge. KSB is excited to be supplying the package for the Operations Challenge KSB Maintenance Event through 2021.

  • Is My Pump Operating At Its Optimum Rate?

    An optimized pump and slurry system can make or break a business in the Canadian Oil Sands. Costing up to $100,000 per hour due to lost production, it’s no secret that sites plagued by frequent shutdowns, pump malfunctions, or constant parts replacements struggle to control costs. If you’re struggling with the wear life of your pump’s parts, you may not be operating optimally. Use these tips to boost your efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. 

  • Optimizing Activated Sludge Mixing

    Mixing activated sludge to a velocity of 0.03 meters/second is important because it keeps bacteria in motion, avoids sedimentation and optimizes the biological wastewater treatment process.  Water Talk recently caught up with Michael Lebkuecher, Director of Product Management for Solids Handling Pumps and Rainer Kutzko, Senior Project Engineer, both with KSB to learn more about mixing considerations.

  • Boiler Feed Water Pump Local Instrumentation — Necessity Or Nuisance?

    Anyone remember the old cars of the 1950s and 1960s? They all pretty much came equipped with an ammeter, an oil pressure gauge, a water temperature gauge, as well as a speedometer and a fuel level gauge. Then came the ’70s, ’80s, even the ’90s and turn of the century cars, where “idiot lights” replaced the ammeter, oil pressure and water temperature gauges. Now the latest up-to-date vehicles have again returned to certain analog gauges, and digital read-outs, as well as computerized “information centers” that tell the operator more than they possibly ever wanted to know about their vehicle.


KSB’s research centers focus on hydraulics, materials technology and energy-saving motors and equipment to ensure high overall energy efficiencies. Customers benefit from innovative ideas and dedication of more than 16,000 employees.

KSB in the USA is a subsidiary of KSB AG and has been doing business here since 1974. KSB brings 140-plus years of global experience and competence in centrifugal pump technology with cutting-edge designs for optimum reliability and maximized performance.

In 1996 GIW Industries, Inc. became a full subsidiary of KSB AG. GIW is renowned for its severe abrasive handling pumps and is a world leader in wear technology. In 2016, GIW commemorated its 125th year of servicing the minerals and mining industries.

GIW has grown in size and expertise to ensure that KSB’s GIW Minerals products are at the forefront of slurry technology. Our production facilities recently completed a multimillion-dollar expansion to provide the best in slurry solutions. It was designed to increase the capacity for large flask sizes and has more than doubled foundry capacity.

In 2010 KSB acquired Standard Alloys Inc. Since 1926, Standard Alloys has provided high quality replacement parts, part repairs, complete  replacement pumps and other industrial equipment through its manufacturing location in Port Arthur, Texas. Originating from a demand for replacement parts for the refinery industry, Standard Alloys expanded into the chemical, municipal and power industries.  In 1982 we added a repair center in Vidor, Texas. With the support of KSB and fueled by its desire to be customer centric, the company expanded its geographical  coverage and now has service centers in Port Allen, Louisiana, and Deer Park, Texas. The fully integrated manufacturing process is mission  critical to the high quality and quick delivery offering.

The reverse engineering process developed at Standard Alloys has been proven successful and continues to help customers keep equipment running by eliminating obsolesce concerns and offering rapid product delivery. As a single source solution provider, Standard Alloys continues to expand our engineering excellence by offering metallurgical upgrade, mechanical upgrades and hydraulic upgrade to improve customer’s mean time between repairs. Our engineering can help you reduce the total cost of ownership for your pumps.
