Modern pumping system challenges
Whether moving a municipal water supply, drawing oil from the bottom of the ocean or siphoning aggressive fluids in chemical plants – modern society requires reliable, efficient pumping systems.
For today’s industrial pump operators, that means finding ways to reduce the total cost of ownership while also complying with increasingly tougher environmental legislation. The challenge for pump manufacturers is to increase meantime between failures while optimising energy consumption over the entire life cycle of the pump, as energy accounts for 45% of total pump ownership costs.
