Energy-efficient pump systems for water supply

Friday, November 17th, 2017 von admin

With the use of the permanent magnet technology, oddesse pumps and motors factory developed an energy-efficient pumping system to support water supply companies to sustainably reduce energy consumption and thus contribute to the protection of the environment.

In the past, the efficiency of pump systems was often calculated by solely considering the efficiency of the pump. The efficiency of the motor, on the other hand, which is determined by the ratio between the electrical input and the mechanical output, has been largely ignored. However, the overall efficiency of the complete pumping system has an impact on the energy costs, which, as the decisive factor, account for more than 80% in the efficiency analysis. By optimizing the overall system, the greatest savings in electricity costs can be achieved.

Facing the worst drought on record in the Colorado River Basin, as lake levels continue to fall, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is building a low lake level pumping station to ensure Las Vegas and Southern Nevada maintains access to its primary water supplies in Lake Mead. Lake Mead water levels have dropped more than 40 m (131 feet) since the drought began in 2000. The new pumping station will allow SNWA to pump water from Lake Mead from an elevation as low as 267 m (875 feet) above sea level into the water treatment facilities and further on to provide water to the city of Las Vegas and neighbor community area.

Andritz: 11 split-case pumps for water supply in China

Monday, November 2nd, 2015 von admin

andritzAndritz has received an order from Hohhot Water Supply to equip two pumping stations in the city of Hohhot in North China with six and five double-flow split-case pumps, respectively. Start-up is scheduled for late 2015.

The two pumping stations will deliver 200,000 m³/h of water from the Yellow River to the city of Hohhot, the capital of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region with a population of around one million. As the Yellow River carries large quantities of sand, the pumps will be provided with a special highly resistant coating.

DAB: Efficient re-use of rainwater

Friday, May 30th, 2014 von admin

Aquatwin_Top_di_Dab_Pumps_Aprile_2014Combined with rainwater collection systems, the new Aquatwin Top is a pressurisation unit which offers savings in terms of water and therefore energy consumption. The rainwater stored in external tanks supplies all services that do not require drinking water (washing machine, WC…). In domestic applications it is calculated that the daily water requirement is 150 litres per person, in particular due to use of the WC, for cleaning and use of the washing machine, for watering the garden and washing the car. Roughly 50% of this consumption can be provided by rainwater, and the use of this water provides an average cost saving of 50%.
