Understand the pump optimisation strategies that lead to significant cost reductions and enhanced performance.
As a pump engineer, you cannot overlook the significance of plant operating costs and conditions. Employing the correct pump operation methods brings substantial advantages to both you and the entire system. Considering that pump operation costs can be significant – currently standing at £3,000 per kWy (equivalent to a 1kW heater running for a year) – even a 10% saving becomes crucial. By running pumps close to their design positions, you effectively reduce the stresses and strains on the machinery, leading to improved asset resilience and a decreased risk of failure.
Join us for this comprehensive webinar as we delve into the mastery of pump efficiency and the optimisation of energy consumption in pumping systems. Pumps consume a staggering 25% of the world's electricity, with energy savings accounting for up to 35% of this energy. By leveraging the vast potential for energy savings in pumping systems, you can contribute to significant cost reductions and sustainable operations.
In this webinar, we will take a holistic approach to pumps, covering everything from their fundamental principles and operation to the interplay between pumps and systems. We will delve into the causes of energy waste, explore strategies for recovering energy losses, and equip you with the knowledge to select and maintain the right equipment for optimal performance and extended pump life.
