Pumping Systems III: Improving System Efficiency

Pumping systems support essential processes in buildings, manufacturing and water treatment. A pump does not function in isolation: it is part of a system of supply and demand. The use of a ‘systems approach’ will typically yield a quieter, more efficient, and more reliable system. This course will explore how fine-tuning a pump’s performance helps to render it more suitable for the system, while appropriate design of piping configurations helps to reduce energy losses. We’ll also recap how you can detect oversized pumps in your pumping system.
