PD : What is the specialty of your HSC Pumps?

KS : The KEERTHI K- HSC pump is a centrifugal double suction electro- pump with a single stage, horizontally split case and radial flanged design. The K- HSC pump has cast iron casing ( ductile iron on high pressure models) and stainless steel impeller standard. K- HSC pumps are equipped with interchangeable mechanical seals, Premium efficiency motors, and base plates for added support. Easily adjustable ANSI/ OSHA compliance coupling guards are also included standard. K- HSC pumps are designed for ease of serviceability. The horizontal split- case design allows the entire rotating assembly to be removed simultaneously after removing the upper casing. Additionally, mechanical seal and bearing service can be performed without removing the upper casing of the pump. Both of these features permit pump maintenance without removing attached piping.

PD : How do you assure on your KSR Slurry pumps which have up to 7 % consistency?

KS : KEERTHI Pumps are widely used in various industries like Pulp and Paper mills, water treatment plants, sewage plants, desalination plants, chemical plants, and much more. As we Know the pumping of stock is one of the most crucial operations in Paper and Pulp Industry.All the corresponding processing stages in the paper industry indispensably involve the use of water and other chemical sand fluids at various levels for distinct applications. With decades of expertise and comprehensive product range of Keerthi pumps is well- equipped to handling of the inevitable for managing and transfer of these liquids. Stock pumping solutions are traditionally divided into low consistency [0 – 6 %] range and medium consistency [6 – 10 %] and high consistency (above 10 %).

PD : What is your designing concept about focus on facilitating modular type replacement of components / equipment to ensure zero down time?

KS : Our Design is Highly interchangeable design and Cost effective with More life span so we ensured our products would be zero down time for our end users.

PD : How best are your facilities?

KS : Machinery – Our technological edge and decades of experience have afforded us a strong position in global market. We will continue to harness that advantage as we expand our portfolio of specialized pumping solutions. we are equipped with a captive steel foundry that has a capacity of 450 mt/ month. We only use castings made in our own foundry. We have a spectrovac and alloying machinery that is adjusted to stringent metallurgical specifications to ensure precise chemical composition of the materials.

PD : May we know the merits of your products?

KS : The merits are

• Highly pump efficiency – Extremely high efficiency rate of 80 %. Thus relatively smaller driver required, reduced energy consumption and efficiency pump design and high reliability result in lower operating cost

• Trouble free operation – Semi- open impeller permit free passage of solids, thus guarantees clog free operation.

• Over-sized shafts and reduction of the overhang reduces shaft deflection to a minimum. This eliminates shaft failures and increases seal and bearing life.

• For ease of maintenance, the entire rotating assembly can be removed without disturbing the casing or suction and discharge piping (Back pull- out design).Large access holes with contoured covers give easy access to the impeller.

• Larger mixed flow pumps in sewage systems have specially designed impellers with large ball passages. The replaceable wear rings carry solid matter away from the working face, thus reducing wear and eliminating clogging and jamming.

• Simple disassembly and assembly – Impeller can be easily inspected without removing driver. Simple to disassemble and assemble

• Easy replacement of gland packing without disassembling of pump casing.

• Sealing water from outside is not required.

• Large capacity – Unique pump design ensures pumping large volume of water. Perfect for irrigation&

flood control.

• Power consumption is constant over all capacity range and driver will not be overload at larger capacity points.

• Special stand bearing is not required for Belt driven over large capacity- head range.

• Low NPSH values

• High suction l i f t

• Low operating costs by appropriated material selections to the demanding water qualities. This includes the optional selection of duplex stainless steels.
