Optimizing pump life cycle performance provides a new path to help reduce plant-operating cost. The largest consumers of industrial motor energy, typically, are the centrifugal pumps moving fluid throughout your operation.
Recent studies show that average pumping efficiency in industrial plants is below 40%. Pump over-sizing and throttled valves are identified as the two major contributors to efficiency loss.
Optimizing pump performance has the potential to achieve 30% to 70% improvements in energy and maintenance cost, while improving both pump and process reliability.
