Pumping up the energy savings with a new ISO standard

Pumping up the energy savings with a new ISO standard
 
From pumping water from a well to fuel injection in your car and even manufacturing medicines, pump systems are used everywhere. But all too often they are given more energy to function than they actually need. A new ISO international standard aims to change all that, saving the planet - and our wallets - in the process.
 
ISO’s new international standard, ISO/ASME 14414, Pump system energy assessment aims to reduce energy consumption by enabling organizations to effectively determine the minimal amount of energy that is required by various pump systems, thus enabling facilities to improve energy efficiency, subsequently reducing consumption and the carbon footprint.
 
Developed in conjunction with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), ISO/ASME 14414 sets the requirements for conducting and reporting the results of a pumping system assessment, allowing facilities to not only calculate their current energy consumption but identify ways to reduce energy and improve its efficiency.
