Hydraulic Institute Releases Pumping Systems Guidebook
August 1, 2008
Pump Systems Matter™ and the Hydraulic Institute are releasing a new reference, “Optimizing Pumping Systems: A Guide to Improved Efficiency, Reliability, and Profitability.”
Parsippany, NJ - Pump Systems Matter™ and the Hydraulic Institute are releasing a new reference, “Optimizing Pumping Systems: A Guide to Improved Efficiency, Reliability, and Profitability.” Scheduled to debut in mid-August, the new reference is the most definitive guidebook to date on how to optimize pumping systems for maximum energy efficiency.
Based on the collaborative efforts of 22 industry experts, the guide explains how optimizing both existing and new pumping systems, and purchasing based on lifecycle cost, can lead to increased profitability through a reduction in energy consumption and maintenance costs. According to Gregg Romanyshyn, Technical Director of the Hydraulic Institute, “Energy losses in the pumping system as a whole are typically greater than energy losses in the pumping unit. With existing pumping systems, for example, system optimization can yield as much as a 50-percent reduction in energy costs. This savings is often accompanied by a substantial improvement in reliability and MTBR when pumps are properly matched to the system requirements.”
Featuring illustrations and reference tables, the new guide covers a range of topics including pump fundamentals, pump and system interaction, calculating cost of ownership, improving the performance of existing pump systems, optimizing new designs, and pumping system economics. The guide also includes an extensive 13-page glossary of terms along with case studies and a detailed matrix of tools for optimizing pumping systems.
