Maintaining pumps saves energy

Synopsis 

Pump efficiency deteriorates over time leading to energy wastage. Efficiency losses of between five and 15 per cent can occur after 10 years of operation. When pumps are maintained to restore efficiency close to its original point, significant energy savings can be achieved. Typical pump overhaul includes: replacement of wear rings, seals, bearings and worn impeller; cleaning of internals, blast cleaning of externals and applying new epoxy coating.
