According to studies by the U.S. Department of Energy, nearly 25 percent of electricity demand comes from industrial motor systems, more than 50 percent of pump life cycle costs result from energy and maintenance expense, and energy savings of 20 percent or more are possible with systems optimization.

With the goal of helping CPI professionals improve energy efficiency, the 2009 Chem Show will introduce “Pumping Systems Optimization: Opportunities to Improve Life Cycle Performance,” on Wednesday, November 18. Pump Systems Matter (PSM) and the Hydraulic Institute (HI), organizations focusing on the advancement of pump knowledge and pumping systems optimization, have teamed up to conduct this one-day course during the Chem Show, which will be held November 17-19 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
