Pump & Flow Cutting your pumping costs
Pumps are at the heart of many process streams, but because of their relatively low CAPEX and OPEX they are oftentimes overlooked as plant managers look to focus on bigger ticket items for cost savings. However many sites were constructed before accurate 3D design tools were available, and consequently the pumps were sized only approximately, based on estimates of elevations and frictional losses. This inefficiency is compounded by that fact that the internal surfaces has generally become much rougher with age due to scale, wear or corrosion . These losses are small, but they have a cumulative effect across the plant, and over the life of the asset they can amount to considerable cost.
