Want to use less power to pump your water?

As with all machinery, pumping systems will decline in efficiency over time, either due to abnormal operating conditions, or through normal wear and tear. To keep the system functioning at peak efficiency it’s important to monitor pumping performance on a regular basis, but it … Continued

Case Study -Improving irrigation efficiency for in-ground flowers: Tropical Blooms

The first step in the assessment process was to determine the efficiency of the pump. This was  achieved by conducting a pump assessment where operating pressure, flow rates and electricity consumption were measured. During this assessment, recirculation cavitation noise was  apparent, and from the … Continued
A Case study in Cavitation

A Case study in Cavitation

During the design and assessment of pumping systems, one of the factors that must be taken into account is the effect of cavitation on pump efficiency. Cavitation is a phenomenon where, under certain conditions, vacuum bubbles are created within the pump, leading to increased pump … Continued
