Two Major Pump Associations Announce Method to Address Dramatic Increases In Worldwide Energy Costs

28.05.2001

HYDRAULIC INSTITUTE & EUROPUMP RELEASE "PUMP LIFE CYCLE COSTS"

One solution to the worldwide energy cost crisis can be found in a 200-page reference guide, "Pump Life Cycle Costs: A Guide to LCC Analysis for Pumping Systems," pictured. The book details substantial energy savings opportunities, particularly in pump process type operations. Pumps are used in virtually every industrial and commercial enterprise. The result of a joint effort by the Hydraulic Institute (HI), and Europump, the $125.00 guide can be ordered from www.pumps.org, or the Hydraulic Institute at 973-267-9700.

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to the current

worldwide energy cost crisis, industries are being driven to seek far-reaching

savings alternatives. A solution has been derived in the form of a 200-page

reference guide, "Pump Life Cycle Costs: A Guide to LCC Analysis for Pumping

Systems," the result of a joint effort by the Hydraulic Institute (HI), the

largest association of pump producers and leading suppliers in North America

since 1917, and Europump, spokesperson for 15 national pump manufacturing

associations in Europe, since 1960.

"With nearly 20 percent of the world's electrical energy consumption

accounted for by pumping systems, and with pump usage in individual plant

installations accounting for as much as 25 to 50 percent of the total energy

consumption, we recognized a real need for optimizing pumping systems design

and life cycle cost (LCC) savings guidelines -- ones that address each

interdependent element in a pumping system," noted Robert Asdal, executive

director of HI. Pumps are used in virtually every industrial and commercial

enterprise. The energy savings potential, particularly in cases where the

pump is being run in process type operations, are very significant.

Optimizing Pumping Systems

Pump users, suppliers and designers can optimize pumping systems and

recognize significant cost savings by applying methods within the new

comprehensive LCC guide. It describes the essential pumping system components

and shows, step-by-step, the considerations necessary to specify, design and

operate the system for minimum life cycle cost. Contained is a complete model

for estimating total costs for the life of a pumping system including

procuring, running, maintaining and disposing of plant and associated

equipment.

"Whether replacing, upgrading or installing a new system, the most

convenient opportunity to influence a system's LCC is when it's procured,"

noted Asdal. "We see this guide as a key resource and hope it will serve as

the industry's standard reference for LCC evaluation." A free 16-page

executive summary of the LCC Guide and other cost-saving tools and software

can be found in the "Energy" section under "Pump Resources," at

http://www.pumps.org. Visitors are invited to sign the HI Guest Book for

future energy savings tips and updates. A copy of the $125.00 LCC guide can

be ordered online at the HI e-Store and it is available for immediate

shipment. Pre-paid orders, including cost of shipment, can also be mailed to

HI at 9 Sylvan Way, Parsippany, NJ 07054, USA, or be placed by calling

973-267-9700.
