About the Webinar
Pumps are used widely in industry to provide cooling and lubrication services, to transfer fluids for processing, and to provide the motive force in hydraulic systems. In fact, most manufacturing plants, commercial buildings, and municipalities rely on pumping systems for their daily operation. In the manufacturing sector, pumps represent 27% of the electricity used by industrial systems. In the commercial sector, pumps are used primarily in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems to provide water for heat transfer.
Municipalities use pumps for water and wastewater transfer and treatment and for land drainage. Since they serve such diverse needs, pumps range in size from fractions of horsepower to several thousand horsepowers. Intent on ensuring that the pumps are large enough to meet system needs, engineers often overlook the cost of oversizing pumps and err on the side of safety by adding more pump capacity.
Unfortunately, this practice results in higher-than-necessary system operating and maintenance costs. The session gets down to the basics of pumps and how to conserve energy in the Pumping system with successful case studies.
