Efficient Pumps and MotorsCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Cross Cutting Technology|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Replacing a pump with a new efficient one reduces the energy use by 2% to 10%.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
For a given duty, a pump that runs at the highest speed suitable for the application will generally be the most efficient option with the lowest initial cost.
Efficient Pumps and Motors Publications
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) energy guide, Energy Efficiency Improvement and Cost Saving Opportunities for the U.S. Iron and Steel Industry, discusses energy efficiency practices and technologies that can be implemented in iron and steel manufacturing plants. This guide provides current real world examples of iron and steel plants saving energy and reducing cost and carbon dioxide emissions.
