Pumping System Optimization Course offered by Engineered Software Inc. and Hydraulic Institute in La Grande, Oregon


Did you know that the average pumping system efficiency is 40% or less?

When pumping systems are not optimized for best efficiency, they will drain your company’s profitably with higher energy and maintenance costs, shorter mean time between repairs, more CO2 emissions and a less reliable system overall. The typical medium-sized plant spends over $1.4 million a year on energy to run their pumping systems. Better system design and optimized pumping systems may result in savings that will average $350K per year on energy alone. For irrigation users, the class can show how to lower header pressures without throttle valves and explore ways to modify pumps by trimming the impeller. The course will address how variable speed drives can save additional power by slowing down the pump speed, which will save energy and reduce cost in the process. With the system running more efficiently, maintenance and operating costs will go down and the mean time between repairs will improve.
