Abstract

The high cost of energy and the scarcity of fuels have become a hard fact of life, making it imperative to examine all energy-consuming processes with a view to improving their overall efficiency. And since every industrial process that underlies our modern civilization involves the transfer of liquids from one level of pressure or static energy to another, pumps have become an essential part of all industrial processes, and in turn, major consumers of energy themselves. It thus becomes even more important to avoid waste whenever possible and to examine both the selection and operation of our pumps to see whether we can effect significant savings in energy consumption.
