This three part primer is a basic introduction to AC power for those in the pump industry who need a place to start. It will also provide several web references to access if you would like to further your understanding of this interesting and essential topic.
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), which restates and broadens the definition of General Purpose Electric Motors, goes into effect on December 19, 2010.
Traditional control techniques examine the "running" status and the "not ready" status of the control circuit.
While it is valid to state that energy efficiency is defined as the same level of production achieved at an overall lower energy cost, it is equally important for today's machine builders and automation engineers to remember an energy efficient system can actually translate into higher productivity. This is achievable through a comprehensive approach to energy management.
With continuously increasing energy costs, pump manufacturers must provide energy efficient solutions for fluid transfer.
With today’s energy prices and the need to reduce emissions, a plant cannot allow its steam/condensate systems to vent flash steam to the atmosphere.
Holistic pump system designs optimize system efficiency and life cycle performance.
Tips to ensure optimal control valve performance.
Corrosive, aggressive soil had eaten through a 35 year old ductile iron pipeline in the Port of Tampa area, causing a multitude of leaks that could not be repaired.
Variable frequency drive technology is more efficient and accurate, which leads to increased energy savings.
This article will review properties from two basic tests, how they are determined and what value they have in selection of sheet-gasket material for an application.
