Energy efficiency assessments for pumps

05 December 2019

An energy check of your pumps provides a solid foundation for saving 30-50% on their operational costs, according to Grundfos.

Pumps are at the heart of many facilities. Day in and day out, they help make a business run. But they come at a price – not so much to purchase, but in the daily operation of the pump. In fact, Grundfos says 85% of the total costs of pumps relates to the energy used to run them. Any installation with old, over-sized, inefficient or unsuitable pumps is likely to hide this kind of savings – and an energy check helps you discover the potential.

Grundfos offers a number of different energy efficiency assessments: Energy Check, Energy Check Advanced, Pump Audit and Thermo Dynamic Testing.

If you want a quick assessment of the typical savings that can be made by upgrading to high efficiency pumps, then Grundfos believes its Energy Check is a good place to start. With an advanced energy check, it can monitor the energy and performance characteristics of every pump in a facility at once; this can often provide wider benefits than just energy monitoring, often highlighting problems with valve performance and incorrectly specified pumps.
