Pumps are used widely for daily operation in industry to provide process fluid movement, cooling and lubrication services, or the motive force in hydraulic systems. In the manufacturing sector, pumps represent 27% of the energy used by machine driven systems.
Dramatic energy and cost savings can be achieved in pump systems by applying best energy management practices and purchasing energy-efficiency equipment. Use the software tools, training, and publications listed below to save energy in pump systems.
