Your one-stop shop for all information related to pumps and energy efficiency

Pumps are arguably the most common machine in power and process industry, and major consumers of energy, yet relatively little information is available on the application of predictive maintenance/condition monitoring to them. When deterioration in performance of a centrifugal pump causes a drop in plant production, overhaul is readily justified, as its cost is usually small in proportion.
