A 20-year-old, direct-contact water heating system continues to deliver optimum performance for a Canadian Hospital.
Green means a pump or pump system that uses less energy or reduces material usage in its design.
Learn about intelligent pumps and their ability to improve fluid handling. pump efficiency
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.
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.
As oil prices and gasoline usage have increased, the demands on U.S. oil and gas wells have grown dramatically. In the past, there was a low cost supply from the Middle East, and U.S. oil wells were not used as frequently due to low reservoirs and the energy cost associated with extracting the oil. A large number of U.S. wells were shut down in reaction to high electric costs, low oil prices, the need for monitoring the oil reservoir and machine maintenance. As of 2004, there were just over 800,000 onshore oil wells in the world, with about two-thirds of them in the United States.
Significant energy and money savings are realized when using variable speed motors controlled with drives.
Equipment and technology improvements can be sound investments.
Mining operations can meet the demands of increased environmental vigilance with polymer preparation systems.
Adjustable frequency drives for improved energy efficiency and parallel, multiphase pumps
While driving a car with the gas pedal to the floor and then controlling your speed using the brake is obviously inefficient, many facilities use the approach for pump control. Flow control with throttling or restrictive devices sacrifices energy efficiency and results in unnecessary costs. However, with an understanding of basic principles, an analysis of the specific application, information about available control solutions and evaluation of technologically advanced equipment, facilities can make a quantum leap in improving the efficiency and economy of pumping operations. pump efficiency
Changes in the world economy, the markets we serve and the pump industry are continuing at an exponential rate.
Improved reliability, performance and energy efficiency can result from pump system assessment. pump system optimization, pump efficiency
In the United States, several long distance pipelines move gasoline from the refineries in the Southwest to the coastal areas in the Northeast.
Water and wastewater systems in the United States use a tremendous amount of power. The EPA estimates that these systems use 50 trillion watt-hours annually at a cost of $4 billion. Combined with electric rate increases upward of 20 percent in a single year, water and wastewater system operators are left with an enormous strain on their budget.
Water and wastewater systems in the United States use a tremendous amount of power.
The concept of solar and wind energy and how the government and private sector can work together to launch new technology.
To state that 2009 was a turbulent year for the pump industry is a substantial understatement.
Rockwell Automation, Insyght Systems & the city of Hamilton grab the win.
Water hammer (also waterhammer) is a pressure surge that can arise in any pumping system that undergoes an abrupt change in its rate of flow.
