Pump upgrade reduces total cost of ownership through diagnostic capabillity and variable speed drive

ALLMIND will protect a pump, maximises efficiency, lower energy usage and lower maintenance and spare parts costs, claims manufacturer Colfax Fluid Handling (a business of Colfax Corporation a leader in critical fluid-handling, transfer solutions for the commercial marine, defense, oil & gas, power and industry).

Energy costs account for 85 per cent of the total cost of ownership for ballast and cooling pumps, demonstrating the importance of assessing total cost of ownership rather than basing purchasing decisions purely on initial cost. The concept is just as relevantly applied to upgrade decisions, says Christian Martin, Director, Product Management Commercial Marine at Colfax. This means keeping abreast of technology and, as is often the case with pumps, recognising when old practices must make way for the new to achieve greater operational efficiency and profitability.

“We have the technology to reduce the energy consumed in pumping operations by up to 50 per cent simply by enabling variable speed operation,” says Martin. “Add intelligent diagnostics and reliability goes up and maintenance costs go down – dramatically.”
