Pumping systems account for nearly 20% of the world's electrical energy demand and range from 25-50% of the energy usage in certain industrial plant operations.
Pumping systems are widespread; they provide domestic services, commercial and agricultural services, municipal water/wastewater services, and industrial services for food processing, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and mechanical industries. Although pumps are typically purchased as individual components, they provide a service only when operating as part of a system.
The energy and materials used by a system depend on the design of the pump, the design of the installation, and the way the system is operated. These factors are interdependent. What's more, they must be carefully matched to each other, and remain so throughout their working lives to ensure the lowest energy and maintenance costs, equipment life, and other benefits. The initial purchase price is a small part of the life cycle cost for high usage pumps.
An upcoming one-day workshop sponsored by Catawba Valley Community College and NC State University present a one-day Department of Energy (DOE) workshop on Industrial Pump System Efficiency with this optimal solution in mind.
