KOSTAL variable frequency drives for pumps

Successful pump operation with KOSTAL variable frequency drives

Pumps come in a wide variety of designs: From water and waste water pumps to eccentric screw pumps, lubricant and hydraulic pumps. They all fulfil the most diverse tasks in the most diverse sectors. But they also have something in common: only the right variable frequency drive turns them into the powerful system that helps your application succeed.

Water and waste water pumps with KOSTAL variable frequency drives: Save energy and money 24/7

Electric water pumps, waste water pumps and other classic centrifugal pumps usually run continuously 24/7. No wonder, since gigantic volumes of water often have to be moved. However, continuous operation consumes a lot of energy. Therefore, the variable frequency drive used should operate your pumps as energy-efficiently as possible.

Our KOSTAL variable frequency drives, such as the motor-mounted
INVEOR MPP and the wall-mounted VERTIMO E, all comply with the Ecodesign Directive and the technical standard of EN-61800-9-2. Together with finely adjustable setting parameters, you can therefore be sure that your pump only uses as much energy as is required for the pumping process. Finally, pump protection functions and PID control complete the set-up, meaning that you benefit from smooth processes, including reduced bills and an optimised carbon footprint.

Eccentric screw pumps with KOSTAL variable frequency drives: Powerful starts and precise metering

Eccentric screw pumps, also known as Moineau pumps, are used for pumping viscous media. The high viscosity, however, requires the variable frequency drive in operation to apply considerably more force at the start of the pumping process. Not every drive controller can manage such high starting torques.


Our KOSTAL INVEOR MPP is a motor-mounted variable frequency drive for all motor types. Available in four sizes up to 30 kW, it provides you with a 3-second overload of 200 % for the eccentric screw pump range. This allows you to set even highly viscous media in motion. A speed adjustment range of 1:200 also makes the finest metering possible. In this way, you can turn your application into a time-, cost- and energy-saving eccentric screw pump solution. And you are at the cutting edge of technology.

Lubricant pumps with KOSTAL variable frequency drives: Precise metering which is incredibly simple to operate


Lubricant pumps in industry are like syringe pumps in medicine: they have to deliver their liquid medium at exactly the right time. And at the right dosage. Without any ifs or buts. Otherwise, costly breakdowns or even accidents may result.

The KOSTAL INVEOR MPP variable frequency drive is a motor-mounted drive controller with highly dynamic control. You can use it to control the motors of coolant and lubricant pumps with pinpoint accuracy, making the finest lubricant metering possible, exactly when it is needed. The wide choice of operating options also enables all parameters to be entered intuitively and at speed. This saves you not just unnecessary expenses but precious time too.


Multi-pump operation with KOSTAL variable frequency drives: Low costs and fewer failures

You know what it is like: the system is running at full capacity, suddenly the constant and formerly perfectly adjusted pressure drops. And that is only because there is a small fault somewhere in the system. But thanks to variable frequency drives, there are practical solutions for just these moments: multi-pump operation.

The motor-mounted KOSTAL INVEOR MPP is a variable frequency drive equipped with numerous pump functions. This also includes multi-pump operation: by switching up to six additional pumps on and off as required, the INVEOR MP maintains all system pressures at a constant level – even in the event of pump failures. It also distributes the load evenly, taking into account the operating hours, which avoids power peaks and prevents unnecessary wear. For lower costs and fewer failures.

Hydraulic pumps with KOSTAL variable frequency drives: The right pressure at any time


Hydraulic pumps have to meet different requirements depending on the sector, whether they are maintaining a constant pressure in an excavator shovel or rapidly changing the pressure conditions in industry. It is important to have the right variable frequency drive. Only this ensures that your hydraulic pumps build up the desired pressure.

Our motor-mounted variable frequency drives INVEOR MPP and
INVEOR MP offer you the best of both worlds thanks to the fast PID process controller: Short cycle times for changing pressure at speed as well as the ability to maintain constant pressure conditions for a long period and with precision. The additional overload of up to 200 percent also makes the highest starting torques possible, meaning that there are always sufficient reserves even for strong back pressures. This makes our INVEOR variable frequency drives the all-round solution for controlling the pressure of all hydraulic pumps.
