What You Don´t See is What You Get
Cost-effective pumping has been synonymous with ABS for many years. It means offering the optimal solution for every application, whether for a pump, mixer, agitator or aerator. Now ABS offers a LCC (Life Cycle Cost) calculator on the web.
With the long-term commitment to cost-effective pumping, ABS focuses on bringing a lower life cycle cost to pump users world-wide. Above all, the long-term perspective for cost-effective solutions is a commitment to partnership: to be a partner through the whole life cycle of the pump.

Life Cycle Cost (LCC) Analysis of Pumping Systems
The Life Cycle Cost (LCC) of any piece of equipment is the total "Lifetime" cost to purchase, install, operate, maintain and dispose of that equipment.
The LCC process is a way to predict the most cost-effective solution; it does not guarantee a particular result, but allows the plant designer or manager to make a reasonable comparison between alternative solutions within the limits of the available data.
Calculate Life Cycle Cost for Your Own Pump Installation
The calculation assumes that the Investment, Installation and Commissioning costs are taken during the first base year (0). The pump system starts running and Energy and Other* yearly costs are included. For the last year, decommissioning and disposal costs are included. When calculating LCC, all costs are discounted back to the base year. The calculation assumes that the difference between Interest and Inflation rate is 3 %.
For other values a more detailed calculation can be made in the Download LCC calculation software that is also available on the site.
