Let Pump Systems Matter help you with your initiative to increase energy efficiency in your facility.

Pump Systems Optimization (PSO) Live Virtual Course offers participants the same instructors, training systems, course materials, personal support, and face-to-face engagement with instructors and other participants that they would expect to find in a conventional classroom.

The Hydraulic Institute and Pump Systems Matter specialize in pump system related training and technical resources designed to promote energy efficiency and improve overall reliability and performance in various industrial market segment facilities.

Pump Systems Optimization Course Description

Pumping systems account for a significant portion of a facility’s energy use and maintenance costs in many industries.  In the majority of pumping systems, the energy added to the working fluid by the pump is much greater than required by the process. The excess energy added to the system not only increase energy costs; it also generates heat, noise and vibration that increase the system’s maintenance costs. The goal of the Course is to understand how to identify, minimize and reduce expense by educating you on the variables that influence the performance of a pump system.

This course will provide in-depth instruction on the methodology and opportunities to increase efficiency and reliability in pumping systems. Pumping systems are amongst the highest energy consumers and frequently offer one of the greatest cost savings opportunity. Attendees will learn how to assess options to determine cost effectiveness while improving both efficiency and reliability of pumping systems. View the course agenda here.
