Multiple Pumps for Varying Loads

Particularly for the systems dominated by static head, the use of multiple pumps is often the most cost- effective and most energy-efficient solution for varying loads – while the variable speed drives are usually offer a better solution for systems dominated by dynamic head. Parallel pumps offer redundancy and increased reliability.

Parent Process: Cross Cutting Technology
Energy Savings Potential

In a pulp and paper plant, installation of a smaller pump (pony pum) reduced the overall energy consumption of the pumping system by 58%.

The Installation of parallel systems for highly variable loads on average would save 10% to 50% of the Electricity consumption for pumping for the U.S. Industry.
