Pumping Physics 101
Pumping Systems: Energy Efficiency vs. Operating Efficiency
SWRCB Drinking Water: 1 Contact Hour
SWRCB Wastewater: .1 CEUs
CWEA: 1 Contact Hour
Practice Area: Collection Systems
Addressing the current issues of keeping pump stations operational with less maintenance down time requires us to look at how the station is designed and what the proper pump selection should be to meet the demands of each individual application. Provides a comparison of the energy consumption of different impeller designs to the higher cost of maintenance to unplug clogged pumps on a regular basis.
