DOE Web Briefings to Focus on Pump Systems Optimization

The U.S. Department of Energy's Industrial Technologies Program will team with Pump Systems MatterTM, the educational arm of the Hydraulic Institute (Parsippany, N.J.), to host free audio Web briefings on how "Pump Systems Performance Impacts Multiple Bottom Lines." The hosts say participants will learn how energy savings and additional financial benefits can be realized through pump systems optimization.

According to DOE studies:

  • Nearly 25 percent of industrial electricity demand comes from industrial motor systems
  • More than 50 percent of pump life cycle costs result from energy and maintenance expense
  • Less than 15 percent of pump life cycle costs are initial purchase costs
  • Energy savings of 20 percent or more are possible with systems optimization

Delivering the message that improved pump systems performance can lower maintenance costs and improve system reliability for better asset management, thereby improving a company's bottom line while cleaning up our environment, Mike Pemberton of ITT Industrial Process will present the two 40-minute briefings on the following dates:

  • Friday, Dec. 12, 2008, at 11:00 am EST
  • Monday, Jan. 19, 2009, at 11:00 am EST

Participation requires registration, which is available at www.PumpSystemsMatter.org.

DOE's Industrial Technologies Program, through partnerships with industry, government, and non-governmental organizations, develops and delivers advanced energy efficiency, renewable energy, and pollution prevention technologies for industrial applications. The program offers a variety of "Best Practices" resources addressing ways to reduce energy and maintenance costs in industrial process systems, including training workshops, software tools, a series of sourcebooks, case studies, tip sheets, and other materials, several of which focus on opportunities in pumping systems. For example, the Pumping System Assessment Tool (PSAT) aids in the assessment of pumping system efficiency and estimating energy and cost savings.
