Scholarcy highlights

  • In this paper, “energy efficiency” studies, done in a big industrial facility’s pumps, are reported
  • For this purpose; the flow rate, pressure and temperature have been measured for each pump in different operating conditions and at maximum load
  • The electrical power drawn by the electric motor has been measured
  • The main energy saving opportunities result from: replacements of the existing low efficiency pumps, maintenance of the pumps whose efficiencies start to decline at certain range, replacements of high power electric motors with electric motors that have suitable power, usage of high efficiency electric motors and elimination of cavitation problems
