      Prescreening 

      When looking to optimize pumping system operations, a prescreening tool will assist in identifying pumping issues as part of a comprehensive assessment.  This prescreening tool helps identify the highest priority pump improvement opportunities and supports a broad or narrow audit search for improving overall pump efficiency. It also supports engineers in gathering specific data from the field in assessing pump symptoms associated with inefficient energy consumption, high maintenance costs, and other problems and failures.  Based on findings, engineers can identify and prioritize pumps for improvement.  Optimizing pump systems offers the greatest opportunity in saving energy and improving overall reliability.
