• KSB AG will be showcasing its new PumpDrive Eco intelligent pump drive for the first time at this year’s SHK and IFH trade fairs in Germany. The latest version of the “motor-mounted” speed control system for centrifugal pumps was designed specifically to cater for heating and air-conditioning applications. The system makes it possible to reduce energy costs by matching pump output to actual demand. The parameters of PumpDrive Eco are set at the factory based on specific pump and motor data. This reduces the time required to commission the unit. The built-in wireless module allows users to connect to an iPhone via Bluetooth to communicate with the system and configure settings as required. KSB will also première its latest version of Etaline in-line pumps at SHK and IFH. The new Etaline type series comprises 22 pump sizes, with a maximum motor rating of 55 kW. The maximum flow rate is 700 cubic metres per hour and the maximum discharge head is 95 metres. With a focus on energy efficiency, KSB development engineers worked intensively with CFD (computational fluid dynamics) for flow simulation to optimise the hydraulic shape of the suction elbow, volute casing and impellers. All of the Etaline pump sets now meet the ErP Directive, effective from 2015. • Ebara Corp has launched two new aircooled dry vacuum pump models that can be used in various evacuation applications for analytical instruments, medical

equipment, as well as in the food and coating industries and in manufacturing facilities. The EV-SA20 and PDV50 models expand Ebara’s product line of air-cooled dry vacuum pumps to offer speeds of 50 to 1670 l/min. The EV-SA20 achieves a maximum pumping speed of 1670 l/min, while the PDV50 meets market needs for a small-sized, lightweight solution. • UK specialist air-operated doublediaphragm pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Ltd has secured 3-A accreditation for its brand new ‘H’ series pump. Flotronic’s ‘ONE-NUT’ design allows rapid pump disassembly and straightforward cleaning in place. 3-A Sanitary Standards Inc is an independent not-for-profit corporation dedicated to advancing hygienic equipment design for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. “Ease of cleaning and robust rupture protection and associated alarm systems are vital for 3-A accreditation,” said Flotronic chief engineer Peter Wheal. Flotronic designed the ‘H’ Series with the US market particularly in mind. “While 3-A is not a statutory requirement, it is a standard increasingly required by the sanitary industry and particularly in the United States,” said Flotronic’s managing director Jane Waite. “Being authorised to display the 3-A symbol ensures credibility of the new ‘H’ series, at home and abroad.”
