Pump systems may account for 40% of industrial energy usage, but they don’t have to.
As part of HI’s mission to enable the adoption of pump systems that cut energy use, we manage an ecosystem of training, certification programs, and standards that work together to raise:
Industrial plant engineers and managers can find out more about the business case for energy-saving upgrades to their pump systems—and the positive impact of all that conserved energy. Below is a snapshot of HI’s recently released infographic. See the full version here.
The Energy Rating (ER) Program identifies pump technologies that capture energy and cost savings.
Using a unique label, the program rates pumps and systems in the marketplace to show measurable comparisons of energy consumed.
Metric, label, database, and utility resources that advances the use of energy efficient pumps.
Teaches pump system fundamentals, assessment, and optimization.
Ensures compliance with the HI 40.6 test standard, qualifying pumps for listing in the Energy Rating Database.
The U.S. Department of Energy regulations mandate more energy efficient pumps.
Smart pumps featuring integrated sensors and controls tend to have the highest Energy Ratings. These pumps are also likely to perform even better than pumps with separately installed sensors and VFD controls for greater reliability and reductions in operational costs.
