Pump Systems Matter (PSM) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Program will host a free audio Web briefing on how “Pump Systems Performance Impacts Multiple Bottom Lines.”
With volatile economic conditions, finding ways to save money and improve operations is more important than ever. Participants will learn how energy savings and additional financial benefits can be realized through pump systems optimization.
According to studies by the U.S. Department of Energy:
· Nearly 25 percent of industrial electricity demand comes from industrial motor systems
· Over 50 percent of pump life cycle costs result from energy and maintenance expense
· Less than 15 percent of pump life cycle costs are initial purchase costs
· Energy savings of 20 percent or more are possible with systems optimization
Improved pump systems performance can lower maintenance costs and improve system reliability for better asset management, thereby improving your company’s bottom line while cleaning up our environment.
The presenter, Mike Pemberton of ITT Industrial Process, has helped many industrial facilities save significant energy and other operating costs.
The 40-minute briefings will be held on Monday, January 19, 2009 at 11 am EST

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Program (ITP), through partnerships with industry, government, and non-governmental organizations, develops and delivers advanced energy efficiency, renewable energy, and pollution prevention technologies for industrial applications. Best Practices is a part of ITP and offers a variety of resources addressing ways to reduce energy and maintenance costs in industrial process systems. This includes training workshops, software tools, a series of sourcebooks, case studies, tip sheets, and other materials, including several which focus on opportunities in pumping systems. For example, the Pumping System Assessment Tool (PSAT) aids in the assessment of pumping system efficiency and estimating energy and cost savings.
