How Efficient Is Your Pump System?

IN A HYPOTHETICAL world, if the Department of Energy (DOE) showed up at your plant to conduct an energy audit of the pump systems, what grade would you receive?

Do you get an A … or an F? Plant owners and managers are faced with balancing scores of urgent priorities every day—stock holders on one side demanding the plant run continuously to keep the profits high, and engineering (reliability) and maintenance on the opposite side screaming, “we need to shut down to fix the plant.”

Optimizing Air Usage in AODD Pumps

The incorporation of an innovative air control spool into the design of the new ADS is what gives it the ability to arrest air loss at the conclusion of each pumping stroke, which helps make it up to 60 percent more efficient than other ADS technologies.

NEXT GENERATION ADS can reduce air consumption for improved efficiency and reduced operating costs.

Successful industrial operations measure success in many ways – such as operational equipment efficiency, productivity and safety, to name a few. Almost always, they can be grouped into one of three categories:
