Construction Internet of thingsSmart pumpsWinds of change: could smart pumps help power Australia’s offshore wind industry?As the focus on renewable energy production continues to increase around the globe, offshore wind farms have become a key part of many countries’ strategies to produce clean, green energy. Here we explore how smart pump technology could play a vital role in this industry, and further our country’s transition to renewables. Energy Efficiency Sustainability TendersEnergy EfficiencySustainable pumping: leaving the planet to our grandchildrenNo one denies the need for the role that pumping water has in our life. But how efficient are these pumping systems at delivering today’s needs while being environmentally friendly enough to preserve the planet for our grandchildren? Reliability TechnicalTechnicalUnderstanding pump curves #10: when best efficiency isn’t bestLong-time readers of Pump Industry will be familiar with Ron Astall’s popular series of articles on understanding pump curves. In this installment, Ron is back to explain how to select centrifugal pumps for very low flow. Energy Efficiency Heat pumpsEnergy efficiencyChiller heat pumps leading the way in sustainable brewingAustralians have always loved their beer. Increasingly they are loving craft beers from smaller, independent brewers, with more than 600 independent brewers now operating across the country. Despite their popularity, many of these smaller operations face an uncertain future due to the pressure of rising energy costs and the energy intensive nature of brewing. However, Melbourne’s 3 Ravens Brewery is demonstrating how highly efficient heat pumps and some careful planning can allow you to produce a lot more beer for your energy dollar. PIA news Pump handbook TechnicalPump handbookIntake design – part 2The PIA’s Australian Pump Technical Handbook is a cornerstone text for the Australian pump industry and, in our opinion, a must have for anyone who deals with pumps on a regular basis. In this ongoing series, we feature abridged chapters from the classic book to showcase the various areas covered and to reacquaint readers with the technical aspects of pumps. Here, we continue our investigation into intake design.
