This course is endorsed by Eskom DSM and the National Energy Efficiency Agency in the interests of saving electricity

Designed to help engineers and technicians better understand how optimising both existing and new pumping systems will lead to reduced life cycle costs and major reductions in energy usage.

Course Content:

  • A brief overview of centrifugal pump operation and the benefits of improved efficiency
  • Pump and system interaction and the total cost of ownership
  • Scope and opportunities for pump system optimisation
  • Improving the performance of existing pumping systems
  • Designing more efficient pumping systems

Pumping Systems Energy Audit:

  • Step by step instructions on how to go about performing your own pump audit
  • Based on material supplied under licence by the US Hydraulic Institute and Europump
  • Highlight problem areas such as oversized pumps, cavitating or badly worn pumps, misapplied pumps, pumping systems with bypass flow, throttled control valves to provide fixed or variable flow rates, pumps with high maintenance requirements, noisy pumps or valves etc
  • A Pre-screening Guide and Pump Audit Sheets will be supplied to each delegate

Identifying the Appropriate Remedial Action:

  • Understand the pumping system requirements
  • Pump selection considerations
  • Electric motor selection considerations
  • Maintain pumping system efficiency

Reducing pumping costs through pump systems and motor analysis:

  • Select the optimum pipe size, length and material, select types of fittings available, liquid type and optimize pump efficiency
  • Installing EFF1 energy efficient motors and the benefits of variable speed drives vs throttling
  • Each user will receive a copy of the Pump and Fan Motor Optimisation Tool (PFMOT), developed by Eskom DSM, to assist in optimising their pumping systems

Who can benefit from this workshop?

  • Plant Engineers, Consulting Engineers, Maintenance Managers, Instrumentation Technicians, Pump Operators, Mechanical Foremen and Process Engineers

Some Feedback from previous workshops:

“He is very much clued up with his mechanical and electrical background; I would like to involve him on my future projects in energy efficiency on the CW plant optimization at the power stations” – Duncan Ford

“The course is imformative and surely we will improve our pump efficiency when we go back to work” – Misa Michael Tladi

“The course is highly imformative. Provides the kind of knowledge that can be applied to improve our plant performance” – Kagisho Phayane
