Top 5: How to increase energy efficiency of pumps – start with the system

Pumps currently account for 10% of the world's total electricity consumption. Pumps are designed to meet many requirements, energy efficiency not always being one of them. Some plants are built with poor system design where pumps are not properly matched to the system. Bad plant layout resulting in inefficient routing of pipes frequently exacerbates the situation as well. Existing systems are often modified to optimise suction head, gather measurement information or change suction and/or discharge flanges. variable speed pumping solutions can be retrofitted into a system already in service. Throttle valves, pressure relief mechanisms and flow bypass bypasses used for control will all reduce operating efficiency and increase energy consumption. Additional costs may be caused by cooling or heating circuits, liquid flush lines or fluid barrier arrangements. A systems overall frictional resistance can be minimised and the monetary savings maximised if attention is paid to reduce energy costs. Click here for more information on how to read more.
