Energy efficiency of pumping systems is important in that energy efficiency is one of the most important factors in determining pump reliability and maintenance costs. Consequently, energy inefficiency in pump systems increases operating costs due to:
- Higher energy use and cost
- Increased maintenance costs
- Failure (reduced reliability affecting production schedules)
This course is designed to show how to measure pump efficiency so that pump systems are operated at high efficiency following remedial action when the data shows that there is a cost benefit from this action.
