KSB and sustainability of energy
As the mining industry in Southern Africa continues to grow, there is an increasing need for pumps and valves that are bigger, more energy-efficient and sustainable.
KSB Pumps and Valves, a leading manufacturer of pumps and valves, has been at the forefront of this movement, designing and manufacturing pumps that are specifically built to meet the needs of the mining industry. With a focus on sustainability, KSB is leading the charge when it comes to providing equipment that can handle a variety of mining conditions, is easy to maintain, and can provide a long wear life.
“In addition to our focus on sustainability, KSB also dedicates time and energy to minimizing downtime on our mining pumps which is achieved through a range of measures, including the use of high-quality materials and manufacturing processes, as well as extensive testing and quality control procedures,” said Rob Bond, KSB Pumps and Valves, Area Manager for Mining in Southern Africa.
This in turn ensures that KSB pumps are built to last, with minimal need for maintenance or repairs.
But when issues do arise, after-sales service is there to provide support and assistance. With a global network of service centers and technicians, “KSB can provide rapid response times and quick repairs, minimizing downtime and ensuring equipment is up and running as quickly as possible,” said Bond.
This commitment to after-sales service is a key part of approach to sustainability, as it helps to extend the life of their pumps and reduce the need for replacement or disposal.
“One of the biggest challenges facing the mining industry is the need to operate in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. To meet this challenge, we have focused on developing pumps and valves that are designed to reduce energy consumption and minimize the environmental impact,” says Bond.
By using the latest technology and materials, KSB has been able to produce pumps that are more energy-efficient, while still delivering the high performance that the mining industry demands.
