Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system.
This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.
Like other IT leaders, you know you have to modernize your IT infrastructure to become more productive, efficient, agile and competitive. So what's holding you back? Many organizations are still devoting anywhere from 60% to 80% of their time, energy, human resources and budget to supporting legacy systems rather than develop transformative solutions.
Our new eBook, Your 3-step roadmap to IT modernization, will help you align your approach to IT with the way your business works today — and the way you will work in the digital age:
• Increased mobility, multiple device formats and distributed workgroups
• Greater collaboration with outside organizations, including customers, suppliers and partners
• Essential enterprise risk management features such as compliance, legal, security and data governance
Here you'll learn the three stages of IT modernization — from realigning your infrastructure to updating business processes — so you take the right steps.

Purchase price alone is not an accurate measure as to the true costs of a system. When evaluating the products offered by different vendors, the purchaser should take into consideration: purchase cost of equipment and software; cost of installing the infrastructure including data cable and mains power outlet and power cables; cost of installation; cost of maintenance; and more.

U.S. Department of Energy surveys show that minor adjustments in process management can incrementally improve efficiency in commercial and heavy industries. These include pulp & paper, chemical, petroleum refining, mining and food processing where as much as 60% of their total energy consumption goes to the production of steam.
The information-packed Steam Generation & Condensate Recovery Process Optimization kit from Magnetrol explains how effective instrumentation solutions can:
