The pump’s innovative integrated design and compact size reduces submergence and makes it nearly maintenance-free
Endorsing the Prime Minister’s ‘Make in India’ call, Kirloskar Brothers Ltd, the global fluid management company, has announced the launch of yet another product, i-NS pump, which has been developed entirely with domestic technology, a company release said. The new innovative features make the ‘i-NS’ series pump ideal for dewatering function in the water and wastewater treatment industries, sewage, building and construction, and other allied segments.
KBL’s ‘i-NS’ pump is an innovative non-clog sewage submersible pump designed for customer by taking into consideration the end-user’s views. The compact size of the pump helps in minimising submergence, and it comes with an aesthetically-improved design for maintenance-free work.
The KBL’s ‘i-NS’ pump’s stationary installation arrangement is simplified with single guide pipe system. It introduces the innovative modular concept for interchangeability of components. Its Cable Bracket design for wrapping the cable around the body helps in avoiding cable damage, and its Potting Cup design helps in restricting the entry of water inside the pump. Its integrated design also eliminates most of the potential leakage and short circuit issues typically faced by the end-users in the water and wastewater treatment industries, sewage, building and construction, and other allied segments.
Speaking at the ‘i-NS’ pump series launch, Sanjay Kirloskar, Chairman and Managing Director, Kirloskar Brothers Ltd, said: “The indigenous development of technologically-advanced i-NS has been an enriching experience for the entire KBL team. I am pleased with our performance in developing this advanced technology for dewatering purpose across various industry segments. This project further reaffirms our commitment in providing advanced fluid handling solutions for critical applications. The development of ‘i-NS’ series of pumps has also helped us get another step closer to the ‘Make in India’ initiative.”
The ‘i-NS’ pump is packed with innovative features that make it ideal for use. Its integrated design for major components (stator housing/upper bearing holder, mechanical seal housing/lower bearing holder and motor end cover/cable gland) reduces the total number of parts and minimises the fasteners. This integrated design product has 13 models, 49 hydraulics and 206 frames. Due to fewer components and integrated design concept, the pump has better assembly and dismantling lead time than its competitors.
