Flow economy determines true pump system efficiency

A properly sized and operated pump can be one of the most efficient means of performing useful work. An average sized pump operates near 75% efficiency, compared to a combustible engine which operates at only 20% efficiency. In relative terms, a pump can be an efficient machine. It is easy to lose sight of the enormous potential for energy savings that exists by optimizing pump systems.
