Pump Systems Matter and Hydraulic Institute sponsor pump optimization course
Piggy-backing on WQA Aquatech 2009 conference should help draw potential attendees seeking to optimize pumps. Four tips for pump optimization follow with a link to a pump optimization guide.

Parsippany, NJ – Pump Systems Matter (PSM) and the Hydraulic Institute , organizations dedicated to the advancement of pump knowledge and pumping system optimization, will co-sponsor a one-day course titled “Pumping Systems Optimization: Opportunities to Improve Life Cycle Performance” on March 19, 2009, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago (Rosemont), IL.
This course is held in conjunction with the WQA’s (Water Quatlty Association) Aquatech USA 2009 , an exhibition and conference on water treatment technology, March 17-21, 2009. The course is specifically designed to help companies increase profitability and life-cycle costs through optimizing existing and new pumping system practices.
Presenters William C. Livoti, Baldor Electric, and Trey Walters, Applied Flow Technology, will focus on pump and system interactions, pump system optimization opportunities, cost-of-ownership calculations, methods for improving pump performance, and building better pumping systems.
Also discussed will be the availability of current pump system modeling tools such as the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Pump System Assessment Tool (PSAT) and the Pump Systems Improvement Modeling (PSIM) tool offered by the Hydraulic Institute.
The registration fee is $525, so you may need to consider all the information carefully. Course participants will receive a copy of “Optimizing Pumping Systems: A Guide For Improved Energy Efficiency, Reliability & Profitability,” published by PSM and the Hydraulic Institute. This book sells for $195, so that might help mitigate the cost. Of course you wouldn’t have to boost efficiency on too many installations to recover the registration fee through energy cost savings.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
