Auditory Rotary Machines for Pump Efficiency

A pump monitoring and control system – called ESCO-PRO and developed by POSCO venture company – assesses the pump efficiency based on measurements of temperature and pressure at the pump inlet and outlet. Necessary speed adjustments are then performed using a VSD system in order to run the pump at optimal efficiency and thereby reduce energy consumption.
