Pumping systems support essential processes in buildings, manufacturing and water treatment. A pump does not function in isolation: it is part of a system of supply and demand. The use of a #systems approach# will typically yield a quieter, more efficient, and more reliable system. This course will explore how fine-tuning a pump#s performance helps to render it more suitable for the system,while appropriate design of piping configurations helps to reduce energy losses. We#ll also recap how you can detect oversized pumps in your pumping system.
