Utility Week Pump Supplement: pumps get smarter, greener and more efficient

The latest innovations and improvements in pumps, seals, actuators and data gathering technology are all included in the new edition of the Utility Week Pump and Valve Supplement – now available for download.

Re-thinking the efficiency of pump systems to reduce energy usage, and the development of a new ISO international standard, is the topic of the main article.

But has the energy appetite of industrial pumps been overlooked in the government’s 10 point plan for a “green industrial revolution”? The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) argues that it has.

Meanwhile Steve Schofield, BPMA director and chief executive, also explains why the EU’s Eco-Design Directive must have a broad reach if it is to force manufacturers to dramatically increase the energy efficiency of their products

A case study about replacing Pooley Bridge in the Lake District, washed away by Storm Desmond in 2015, describes how an over-pumping solution from Sykes Pumps created a safe working area to build the new bridge structure.

In other articles, pump specialist SEEPEX offers a case study of a new solution installed at an Anglian Water facility.

AESSEAL explains how pump reliability can be improved, for example by addressing seal failure or water ingress in submersible pumps.

Manufacturer AUMA UK describes the latest innovations in its range of valve actuators, plus other products in its modular range, while Pioneer Pumps looks at connecting pumps via telemetry.

Celeros Flow Technologies describes carrying out a health check on pumps after a drop in performance, and what can be done to improve efficiency.
