PUMPS AND DRIVES RESOURCES

  • Energy-saving pumps will be ever more present in 2021 as investment in eco-friendly infrastructure continues to grow.

  • As one of many ripple effects of COVID-19, capital investment in water and wastewater infrastructure is expected to see some setbacks due to reductions in revenue and cash flow during the pandemic. But a recent report highlights a brighter picture for the growth of trenchless technology in pipeline repair expenditures, thanks to its cost-effective approach for meeting pent-up demand.

  • Pump systems play a critical role in keeping our world in motion. However, specifying parties can often overlook opportunities to improve pump system reliability and efficiency. This can happen when designers or engineers fail to consider new demands placed on the system since installation or understand the benefits of available options.

  • In clean water pumping applications that experience variable demands throughout the day, efficiently sizing and running pumps through their daily cycle requires a delicate balance in process design. Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are a valuable tool for matching pump output and energy consumption closer to actual demand. Here are some important points for evaluating and choosing the best VFD solutions.

  • Water utilities and consulting engineers looking for improved efficiency in clean water pumping applications are finding that the building blocks of smart pump technology and the packaging of fully integrated, self-contained smart pump solutions have much to offer. Here is an overview of the technology involved and the benefits it has to offer across a broad range of applications and implementation approaches.

  • Noise, vibration, heat, and excessive maintenance/repair events are just some potential pump issues inside a water or wastewater utility. Here are some guidelines for troubleshooting pump performance and some steps to take to ensure maximum efficiency and payback from an investment in performance for clean water pumping applications.

  • In many clean water pump applications, performance problems affect only a small segment of the total infrastructure. Dealing with routine repairs, extinct pump OEMs, or changing performance requirements does not have to come down to all-or-nothing replacement. Here are some opportunities and strategies for maximizing the value of existing pumping infrastructure at a fraction of the expense of a new installation.
