The Hydraulic Institute Pump Efficiency Prediction guideline (HI 20.3-2010) is now available in a separate, self-contained publication. The guideline presents a simple method that will help pump users predict normally attainable efficiency levels at the best efficiency point (BEP) for selected types of rotodynamic pumps when the rate of flow, total head per stage, net positive suction head available (NPSHA), and the service conditions are known. Graphs are used extensively to portray the relationship of pump efficiency versus different parameters. The guideline contains information that explains how surface roughness and internal pump clearances affect pump efficiency and helps users understand the power consumption and efficiency loss created by bearings, lip seals, mechanical shaft seals, and shaft packing.

SolarBee offers a whitepaper on use of its SB10000 v18 mixers to reduce electric costs by 42 percent at the Eden, NC, activated sludge wastewater treatment plant. The solar-powered mixers take over the mixing function from brush aerators in the main reactor, cutting aeration requirements from 240 to 180 hp. The aerators are run only to provide the correct DO requirement. Additional results include precise DO levels for better control of BOD reduction, improved TSS level and sludge settling.
