Pumping systems are seldom designed to operate at their Best Efficiency Point (BEP). Overly conservative designs can result in pumps that operate at a higher capacity than their BEP. This can result in less efficient operation and may also cause the motor to draw excessive current. This wastes energy.
A pump wasting 10 horsepower continuously at a power cost of $0.10 per kilowatt-hour increases your utility bill over $6,523 per year. When this wasted energy is multiplied across your total system, large losses occur. Optimization of your pumping operations can result in major cost savings.
