Industry . Energy . Flue gas desulphurizationKSB Technology – Gets Cleanto the Heart of the Matter.
KSB is at home around the world.For over 130 years, KSB hasbeen making pumps that transportchemically aggressive andabrasive fluids 24 hours a day.Flue gas desulphurization (FGD)plants around the world alreadyuse more than 1000 of ourscrubber pumps, well over 2000process pumps in secondarycircuits, plus several 1000 valves.Contractors, consultants, privateand municipal operators all benefitfrom our full range of skills.KSB invests in materials research,manufactures high alloy caststeels, and provides global servicefor our pumps, valves and innovativeautomation products.
In a world of change, technical advancesand economic growth must always go handin hand with environmental care.KSB supports this all the way.Legislators and industry put moreemphasis than ever on all aroundprotection of the environment andnatural resources. FGD plantsare a prime example. Whether incoal fired power stations, refuseincinerators or other settings, theauthorities set the strictest ofstandards. Today, that is as truefor the Far East as it is for theUSA and Europe.Industrial furnaces give off fluegases into the atmosphere, andmost of these contain sulphurdioxide. Modern equipment, however,can remove over 95% of thispollutant before emission. Whilethis is a major challenge, evenfor advanced desulphurizationtechnology, KSB pumps andvalves help make it possible, timeafter time.

KSB stands for an uncompromising drive forquality, and a unique ability to innovate.Over 12,000 employees worldwide are committedto turning those into success for you.We are a global leader in thepumps and valves market forfossil fuel power stations andchemical facilities. Research andnew developments are crucial toKSB, and so are constant improvementsto our establishedproducts. One example of successfulmaterials developmentis the highly wear resistantCeramikPolySiC. This is used forthe components of KWPK scrubberpumps that are in contactwith the fluid pumped.We do everything to ensure thatour products keep your worldflowing round.PUMPS
CeramikPolySiC – For pumpsthat keep running and runningExtreme conditions demand uncompromisingmaterials engineering.KSB developed CeramikPolySiCin cooperation with well knownexperts. The aim was to provide ahighly durable ceramic/polymercomposite material specially designedfor flue gas desulphurizationplants.Material wear takes severalforms. These often combine toaffect components in other ways.Overall, permanent limestoneslurry circulation puts enormouslyhigh demands on the system.KSB uses CeramikPolySiC forKWPK scrubber pump componentsin contact with the fluid.This material is highly wear resistantand completely corrosionproof, providing operators withconsiderably longer runningtimes. As with all our materials,KSB performed extensive practicaltests on CeramikPolySiC incompany labs before applying itto commercial FGD applications.
Thelarge KWPKscrubber pumpreveals its truequalities inside:casing, wear plateand discharge coverall are made ofinnovativeCeramik-PolySiC.In combination withour impeller madeof NORIDUR ® DAS,this novel materialmakes for excellentreliability.For pumps thatrun andrun.
KSB is a leader in the FGD marketthanks to decades of successwith the KWPK scrubber pump.Popular worldwide, this unit nowbenefits from major new developmentsin materials technology.
FGDFGD – wherevermaximum reliability andefficiency are called for ...With its FGD pump, KSB is ableto offer another high performancepump in nominal sizes from460 mm (18 in.) to 965 mm (38 in.)for the scrubber suspension loop offlue gas desulphurization (FGD)plants. This pump was speciallydeveloped for FGD applications byour US subsidiary GIW IndustriesInc. With its high chrome metal wetend, it ensures maximum wear resistanceand offers topefficiencies in excess of90 % on some models.The coarse grained and sharp edgedp a r t i c l e sfrequently occurring in scrubber suspensionloops may result in prematurefailure in pump models withrubber lined cas-ings. Thanks to itshigh chromium content, theall metal casing of the FGD pumpensures longer running time.
