8 Reference Projects

A tailored solution for every application.

A look at our list of reference projects reveals:
Many well-known companies are convinced of the benefits of a pump and PumpDrive combination.

DANONE, Ferrires-en-Bray, France

Danone, the French food and beverages manufacturer, employs
some 90,000 employees at 120 locations around the world. It
produces a total of about 110,000 tonnes of dairy products per
year at its production plant in Ferrires-en-Bray, France, alone.
At its Ferrires-en-Bray site, the company relies on a combination
of pump and PumpDrive to optimise its water supply. PumpDrive
ensures demand-based water supply to the production facilities
and makes a significant contribution towards process optimisa-
tion whilst improving the reliability of production.

VION Food Group, Crailsheim GmbH, Leutkirch site, Germany

Europes leading producer of meat for butcher shops, meat whole-
salers and food retailers slaughters around 1,000 heads of beef
a week and processes several hundred pig and beef carcasses into
high-quality meat products and sausages. To warrant optimum
cooling of their vacuum-packed meats, VION Crailsheim relies
on a combination consisting of a KSB pump fitted with PumpDrive
variable speed system. PumpDrive controls the supply of refrig
erant which varies according to the meat processing operations
taking place in each room. The supply of water with added anti-
freeze agent to the various cold storage areas is matched precisely
to the actual demand of each room. This saves energy and costs.

ArcelorMittal Steelworks, Eisenhttenstadt, Germany

The Arcelor Group is one of the leading steel manufacturers in
the world. By integrating PumpDrive in their existing production
system, Arcelor uses the benefits provided by material-dependent
process pressure control.
This KSB automation product allows fast, precise and continuously
variable speed control to match pump performance to actual
demand. PumpDrive helps to control the process pressures of the
cooling system, which vary according to the type of material the
cooling agent has to be sprayed on. This treatment stage improves
the surface quality of a wide range of materials.
