VEMC is the leading Kirloskar dealer in Mumbai, and in this blog, we tell you all you need to know about the DBXe pump.

Key features

The DBXe is one of the most outstanding pumps available in the market and has some of the most competitive construction and operational features:

  • The delivery size of the DBXe is 32 to 150 mm.
  • The working pressure of the pump is 16 kg per square centimeter (MAWP).
  • It operates at speeds of 1450 & 2900 rpm and 1760 & 3500 rpm.
  • It can operate within a temperature range of -10 to 90 degrees C.
  • The pump casing is made of cast iron. It has centerline delivery with a self-venting design, providing smooth hydraulic passage, and ensuring utmost efficiency. 
  • The enclosed impellers are statically as well as dynamically balanced.
  • Anti-friction ball bearings support the shaft of the pump. Its critical speed is much above the operating speed. The shaft is machined and ground to maintain its concentricity and is protected from the liquid using an ‘O’ ring and a shaft sleeve.
  • The stuffing box is sealed using gland packing or mechanical seal.
  • The bearings are pre-lubricated and grease sealed.
  • The pump has a dry shaft design and rotates in the clockwise direction when viewed from the driving end.
  • The DBXe has a flexible jaw-type spacer coupling.
  • The pump can be driven using both an electric motor and an engine. 
  • Due to its back pull-out type design and interchangeability of components, repair and maintenance are easy and low cost. 

Applications and Industries

As mentioned above, the DBXe is used to process clean low-viscosity liquids (up to 20 cSt). The temperature range of the pumped liquid could be -10 to 120 degrees C. Some of the most common applications of the DBXe are:

  1. Water supply
  2. Sprinkling
  3. Swimming pool water
  4. Industrial water
  5. Firefighting

From Sewage to Success: 5 Reasons to Choose Kirloskar Sewage Pumps

Kirloskar Sewage Pumps
Kirloskar Sewage Pumps

Kirloskar is one of the most trusted names when it comes to pumping in India. The pumps are well suited for a wide range of activities such as irrigation, oil and gas, firefighting and construction. However, with growing urbanisation, more and more municipalities and local authorities are looking for better sewage disposal systems. In the last few years, Kirloskar pump dealers across the country have experienced a sharp rise in clients seeking sewage solutions. 

Here are the 5 main reasons why Kirloskar sewage pumps have become a roaring success


Kirloskar manufactures some of the most robust, reliable, and durable pumps in the country. Much of it has to do with their cast iron body and impellers. Kirloskar sewage pumps are known to operate well in a range of environments. This means stable performance across temperature and chemical gradients of the medium. Any Kirloskar pump distributor will vouch for utmost customer satisfaction on the durability front. 


Household or industrial sewage often carries a lot of sludge, waste, and debris. This can not just clog the drainage but also harm the sewage pumps. Kirloskar’s cutter pump chops the waste into smaller parts while processing the sewage. Thanks to Kirloskar’s smart designs, the performance is always up to the mark.


Any Kirloskar pump dealer could tell you about the delight with which customers buy sewage pumps every single time. This is because of the company’s imperative to make high-tech and sophisticated pumps. For instance, KBL’s remote monitoring system KirloSmart allows users to keep track of pump parameters from their smartphone app. It also indicates when the vitals of the pump are deviating from the normal, increasing the likelihood of a breakdown.


All Kirloskar pumps are designed keeping in mind the maintenance and repair constraints. The simple design and interchangeable parts of the pumps allow users to repair them with ease and without the need for any special expertise or component parts. This reduces the overall costs of the pump during its running life. Proper maintenance and easy repair increase the longevity of the pump and prevent unforeseen breakdowns which could result in serious business losses.


As the clamor for environment-friendly equipment grows, Kirloskar has been putting in a conscious effort to manufacture energy-efficient and long-lasting pumps. Kirloskar pumps like the EE4 save up to 16 percent of electricity. Superior quality of material used, and lower wear and tear also contribute to a longer life. This precludes the frequent repair and replacement of the pumps which can lead to waste and unnecessary environmental burden.

The best part is that Kirloskar sewage pumps have demonstrated real-world success in sewage disposal. All the above features have played their part in establishing an unassailable reputation for Kirloskar.
