Pump Systems Optimization (December 12)

When pump systems are not optimized for best efficiency they drain your profits, impact your maintenance budgets with higher energy and maintenance costs, shorten mean time between repair, and increase of carbon dioxide emissions. Optimized pump systems are more energy efficient and reliable overall. To help pump users run their systems more efficiently, a pump systems optimization and assessment identifies problematic areas where the greatest opportunities for improvement exist. In this full day course, attendees will gain valuable new skills to help them improve centrifugal pump system efficiency and reduce energy and operating costs. 

This course is product-neutral and provides case studies and actual field data to show the energy savings and kilowatt reduction with a more efficient pumping system. Management can use this course as a valuable tool to introduce better energy efficiency practices within their scope and regions. Participants will develop skills to identify a broad range of system improvement opportunities, determine where to focus efforts in their own organization and develop an action plan with financial justification.
