Published on

2009 Canada National Green Building Conference: Improved technology in water pumps reduces energy consumption, water wastage, water contamination and the energy bill. Now that fewer new building projects are being launched, it makes perfect sense for installers to shift their focus to replacing old pumps.

  14. 14. Case Story
  15. 15. Toronto East General Hospital • Responsible environmental management program – Improve energy efficiency – Improve water efficiency • Pressure boosting for domestic water main part of hospital • Domestic water booster pump system – Three pumps: one (1) 20 hp, two (2) 40 hp – All constant speed – 20 hp continuous operation – “brake” to control – “High” maintenance costs – No flow – by-pass to drain – Unknown flow profile – Unknown water waste – Exact energy consumption unknown
  16. 16. Consumption Profile • Assume 84,500,000 gallons per year • Assume maximum flow in any day – 515 gpm • Pump TDH – 135 ft. (58 psi) • Following have been estimated for simplicity……

  21. 21. New Packaged Pump System • Sized for the needs of the hospital – not oversized • Three (3) 15 hp pumps • All pumps controlled with pressure sensors and variable speed drives – Slow the pump down to meet the flow and head requirements – Not braking – No waste of energy
  22. 22. New Packaged Pump System @ 135 ft. TDH • Three (3) equally sized pumps 515 • Speed controlled by variable frequency drives • Able to meet system head conditions at reduced speed, thus reduce hp/kWh

  24. 24. New Packaged Pump System ADDITIONAL BENEFIT • After installation of new system: 515 – Booster system ran at less than 50% speed for >1.5 hours – Flow was approximately 80 gpm at 40 feet TDH – Less water demand, lower pressure loss • Pressure monitoring in the control system turned pumps off when there was no water demand

  26. 26. Summary • To reduce energy consumption in existing systems: – Know your system – design, components, requirements. – How is the pump operating within the system? – If the system is changed, consider installing the right pump – impeller trim, different size or design. – Is there a better way to operate the pump – combination, variable speed, modifications? – Maintain the pumps in the best conditions possible. – Continually monitor how the pump is doing – maintenance costs, energy costs. – Consider all of the alternatives.
