Pumping Optimization Course Will Be Available At The New Chem Show

Sept. 8, 2009

According to studies by the U.S. Department of Energy, nearly 25% of electricity demand comes from industrial motor systems, over 50% of pump life cycle costs result from energy and maintenance expense, and energy savings of 20% or more are possible with systems optimization.  With the goal of helping CPI professionals improve energy efficiency, The 2009 New Chem Show will introduce a ‘Pumping Systems Optimization: Opportunities to Improve Life Cycle Performance’ course on Nov. 18, 2009, during show, which will be held Nov. 17-19 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Pump Systems Matter (PSM) and the Hydraulic Institute (HI) have teamed up to conduct this one-day Pumping System Optimization course that provides attendees with the information needed to conduct basic assessments of their pumping systems.
‘Pumping System Optimization’ is a course for design engineers, facility managers, engineering operations and maintenance personnel that are involved with the design, selection, installation, maintenance, operation, and optimization of pumping systems. The course is intended to help pump professionals better understand how optimizing existing and new pumping systems can improve product quality and increase profitability.
During the instructional seminar, presenters will focus on pump and system interactions, pump system optimization opportunities, cost-of-ownership calculations and methods for improving pump performances and building better pumping systems.  As the result of this course, participants will better understand:
• The benefits of improving the performance of pumping systems;
• System optimization and basic pump system interaction;
• How to screen pumping systems to find good systems improvement candidates;
• How to identify and implement basic performance improvement opportunities;
• Basic life-cycle cost analysis;
• How to plan and propose an Action Plan to management.
Case studies will be discussed and hands-on group exercises will be an integral part of this course. Content will also include:
• Why efficient pumping systems are important;
• Systems optimization;
• Basic pump system interaction;
• Screening pumping systems;
• Analysis tools for pumping systems;
• Improving the performance of pumping systems;
• Life cycle cost analysis;
• Developing an Action Plan;
• Resources and follow-up strategy.
Course participants will also receive a copy of the PSM and HI guide, ‘Optimizing Pumping Systems: A Guide For Improved Energy Efficiency, Reliability & Profitability’ ($195 value).  Compiled by 22 industry experts, this comprehensive resource explores numerous practices for identifying and reducing pump system energy loss.  Other resources included are a Pump System Basic Assessment Guide, Course Participant Guidebook with copies of PowerPoint slides and key takeaways, completion certificate with 7 PDH credits from the Hydraulic Institute and other documents.
