Compare pumps and calculate savings with Colfax's new online calculatorMarch 23, 2012
Colfax Fluid Handling has created an online energy savings calculator for oil and gas industry pump applications, World Pumps reports. The calculator allows comparisons between centrifugal pumps and rotary positive displacement pumps in single and multiple pump applications.
“The Energy Savings Calculator is a useful tool that tells you how much money you could save in energy costs when moving fluids,” said Mike Moore, Director, Global Oil & Gas Marketing, Colfax Fluid Handling. “It doesn’t favor either technology; it is based on facts that allow the user to see the benefits of one or the other when looking at this critical element of total cost of ownership.”
Say you want to calculate the energy savings between pumps in a single application: The user enters the variable inputs such as total flow, inlet/outlet pressure, viscosity, pump type, etc. Once the required field are completed, the Energy Savings Calculator provides a projected annualized energy cost savings benefit in comparing the chosen pumps.
The online calculator is not typically available to the public, though it is available for use on a trial basis through June 2012.
