Pump system optimisation

In the port city of Yeosu in South Korea, pump optimisation specialist RIVENTA says it has created significant savings at a global tyre manufacturer’s water pumping plant, including an annual energy reduction of 13%.

For a pressurised system that circulates cooling water for synthetic rubber processing, Riventa utilised its FREEFLOW technology and Green Pump Index (GPX) benchmarking system to simultaneously monitor five pumps. For 150 hours, system pressure was measured, together with flow rate and head combinations to pinpoint how effectively the pumps could meet the varying demands of the system.

By fully understanding the operation of the system and how the pumps interacted with it, Riventa was also able to calculate optimum performance and make potential GPX Recommendations.
