Variable Speed Pumping Guide

Variable Speed Pumping : A Guide to Successful Applications (written by Europump and the Hydraulic Institute)

Applying speed control can save energy, reduce equipment and maintenance costs, increase reliability and optimise pumping system performance by using the most cost-effective variable speed pump for a given application. The key is to design all elements of the pumping system to function optimally together, for the lowest life cycle cost.

This guide brings together everything you need to know to design, specify and operate successful variable speed pumping systems - all in one amazingly comprehensive volume. It shows you, step-by-step, how to take a system approach to incorporating VSDs in your applications. If there’s a viable way for variable speed control to help generate savings on your pumping costs while improving system performance and reliability, this guide will show you how.
