A process pump in an industrial space is usually used to move liquids around. Depending on their uses, they can be of many different types. Kirloskar, India’s biggest provider of pumps and valves, manufactures a wide range of process pumps to cater to various needs of industries today. It is important to know the features of the pump you’re buying before you get one from your industrial pump distributor.
Let’s look at two of Kirloskar’s process pump variants: The KPD and the KPDS
