A pump overhaul may include: replacement of wear rings, seals, bearings and if worn, the impeller; cleaning of internals; blast cleaning of casing externals; and the application of new epoxy coating.
How efficient is a heat pump?
While the term Coefficient of Performance (CoP) is commonly used, it is important to understand the differences in order that the heat pump will work successfully, and to be able to compare different models that might be using different measures.
Free white paper: Energy efficient pumping
Improving the efficiency of pumping systems is an important focus for energy efficiency efforts. Almost half of the electricity produced globally is used by motors, and a large proportion of these motors drive centrifugal pumps. Efficiency gains result in significant reductions in total energy use over time, dramatically lowering operating costs and environmental impact.
Whole books can be written about the gnarly properties of entropy. Put simply, entropy is a measure of disorder. Strictly speaking, entropy is all about counting the number of quantum-mechanical states that can be occupied at a certain system energy. In this sense, the total entropy of a system is S = kBln(Ω), where Ω is the number of states available (a rather large number), ln(x) is the natural log function, and kB is the Boltzmann constant, having a value of 1.38×10−23 J-K (Joules per Kelvin) in SI units.
How Does Heat Pump Maintenance Impact the Energy Efficiency of Your Home?
At Temp Air System Inc, we advise biannual heat pump maintenance. At our visits, we will inspect your heat pump for any probable problems and recommend repairs if they’re needed. We’ll also make sure your heat pump is clean and make any necessary adjustments. A critical part of a clean heat pump is a clean air filter. Even though we will change your air filter during heat pump maintenance, you can help keep your heat pump efficient by taking a look at your air filter throughout the year.
Using the Pump Performance Curve to Increase Pump Efficiency & Save Energy
Our industrial pumps are wasting far more energy than we know – an estimated $10.2 billion-year! But by carefully watching and addressing pump efficiency, your facility can get control of these energy losses. In this post, we’ll look closer at what causes pump efficiency issues and specific steps for improving pump performance.
Many New Zealand homeowners have wisely invested in the amazing device that we know as a heat pump, which provides cosy warmth throughout the colder months. This wonder of modern technology is nothing short of miraculous when you think about it. A machine that sits quietly in your home keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter, and all for less than a dollar per day in many cases!
Heat Pumps 101: 8 of The Most Common Questions About Heat Pumps Explained
Heat pumps are awesome – everyone says that right? But they’re also kind of… magical? Not really, of course. But the technology that drives heat pumps is mysterious unless you’re an expert in physics AND heating and cooling. And most literature on the Internet either wants you to buy a heat pump, or wants you to NOT buy a heat pump and stick to oil or propane for heat. So we decided to demystify heat pumps for everyone and answer questions straight up so you can make your own informed buying decisions. Are you ready to learn? Here we go:
