Organizations Join Forces to Present Pump Energy Efficiency Course

Participants have opportunity to earn PDHs from Hydraulic Institute

Pump Systems Matter (PSM), the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, Schneider Electric and Grundfos are partnering to host a one-day course on March 20 in Parsippany, N.J., designed to help pump users learn how to identify and reduce hidden operating and energy costs in their pump systems, and ultimately increase profitability of their business. Energy savings of 20% to 40% are possible.

According to industry experts, when pump systems are not optimized for best efficiency, they drain profits with higher energy and maintenance costs, shorten mean time between repairs, and increase CO2 emissions. Optimized pump systems are more energy efficient and reliable overall.

This highly regarded one-day course, Pump Systems Optimization: Energy Efficiency and Bottom-Line Savings, has been taught to more than 500 people.

Although engineers make up a good percentage of those taking the course, maintenance, operations and sales professionals are also well represented. In addition to end users taking the course, engineering consulting firms also take the course to gain knowledge and credibility and to network with end users to increase their business.

All participants will earn seven professional development hour credits from the Hydraulic Institute.

PSM also is offering the opportunity for interested pump companies, distributors, users, utilities, engineering consulting firms, ESCOs, energy efficiency NGOs and state energy offices to host the course in their service territory or present the course for their own group of employees and/or clients/customers.
