5 fascinating facts about pumps

As a supplier of a wide range of high-performance electro-mechanical equipment, we know a thing or two about pumps. However, even these interesting facts surprised us! Take a look for yourself…

1. Pumps account for a massive 10% of the world’s electricity consumption, a figure which could be reduced if more pumps were controlled by variable-speed drives.

2. An upgraded pump system running at optimal efficiency has a payback time of between one and five years. For businesses with a long-term vision, this investment’s a clear-cut decision.

3. Over 20% of the power consumed by electric motors in Europe is used to drive pumps.

4. The chemical industry is a huge user of pumps, with a study in Germany revealing there are an average of 1.25 pumps for every employee in the sector.

5. If energy-efficient pumping systems were installed worldwide, global electricity consumption could be reduced by 4%.

It’s clear that the serious financial implications of an inefficient pump system heavily outweigh the cost of an upgrade or investment in new equipment.
