Why are energy usage and savings important parts of the cost of pump ownership?
Enhanced Operating Efficiency = Energy and Maintenance Savings!!
Pumps and Energy Consumption Facts:
According to the Hydraulic Institute:
[In making a choice of pumping systems to purchase,] many organizations only consider the initial purchase and installation cost of a pumping system. . . . As national and global markets continue to become more competitive, organizations must continually seek cost savings that will improve the profitability of their operations. Plant equipment operations are receiving particular attention as a source of cost savings, especially minimizing energy consumption and plant downtime. . . .
Some studies have shown that 30% to 50% of the energy consumed by pump systems could be saved through equipment or control system changes.
In addition to the economic reasons [for considering lifecycle costs], many organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their businesses, and are considering energy efficiency one way to reduce emissions and preserve natural resources.
For a majority of facilities, the lifetime energy and/or maintenance costs [of pump equipment] will dominate the lifecycle costs, . . . especially if pumps run more than 2,000 hours per year. . . Depending upon the process, downtime costs can be [even] more significant than the energy or maintenance elements of the equation. Careful consideration should therefore be given to productivity losses due to downtime.
How does the TWT Deposit Control System help address the energy waste that occurs in a typical pump operation?
