In an era of conserving energy and increasing sustainability, the MCWA is attempting to reduce energy consumption, greenhouse gases and operations and maintenance costs.
A crucial triumvirate for improving the bottom line. pump system optimization, pump efficiency
A 20-year-old, direct-contact water heating system continues to deliver optimum performance for a Canadian Hospital.
Rotary screw pumps have existed for many years and are manufactured around the world. More demanding service requirements impose challenges on screw pump manufacturers to provide higher pressure or flow capability, better wear resistance, improved corrosion resistance, improved efficiencies and lower leakage emissions. pump efficiency
Green means a pump or pump system that uses less energy or reduces material usage in its design.
Holistic pump system designs optimize system efficiency and life cycle performance.
Pumps come in a plethora of shapes and sizes and curve shape is important for several reasons.
High energy prices pose an unprecedented profit-robbing threat to every manufacturing operation, large or small.
Few would dispute that variable frequency drives (VFDs) save energy, but the exact amount depends on the system. Hydraulically speaking, the main difference between a variable frequency (speed) drive and a discharge valve is that a VFD only changes a pump curve, while a valve only changes a system curve. A pump operates at the intersection between its H-Q curve and a system curve, and a change in either moves the operating point to a new intersection.
Questions about rotary pumps, vertical sump pump, and buying pumps answered by experts in the pumping industry.
How can we tell if a pumping system is designed and operated properly?
Hydraulic Institute has been creating pump standards since 1917
The Pumps & Systems live webinar series continues with an informative and innovative look at Advanced Design Technology's design system, TURBOdesign Suite.

Air-operated double-diaphragm pump technology delivers the shear-sensitivity and leak-free operation required in this application.
Hidden but significant opportunities are nestled among bad economic news, and those companies that take the best advantage of the current circumstances will emerge even stronger when the economy begins its inevitable recovery.
Centrifugal pumps need to be kept in tip-top condition to handle harsh liquid-terminal operations.
Progress toward assisting pump designers to deliver superior, efficient pump designs for these complex constructions must be predicated on the basis of possible design improvements, the tools to assist such work and the availability of necessary staff.
For the non-expert in pump technology, selecting the most appropriate pump technology for a specific application or process system can be challenging because.
Reducing the causes of friction and choosing the proper pump will increase efficiency and cost-savings.
The U.S. has not enacted a wide-reaching, industrial energy efficiency bill since 1992 when the Energy Efficiency Policy Act was passed.
OEM pumps and parts outperform replicated products, and can save thousands per year in operating costs.
