    • Navigating The Department Of Energy (Doe) Energy Conservation Standard And Test Procedure For Pumps 

      Gaydon, Peter (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      Following the European Union’s (EU) lead, the United States (US) Department of Energy (DOE) began the long process of regulating the energy consumption of pumps in 2011 and, with support from the industry and advocates, ...
    • Navigating the Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Conservation Standard and Test Procedure for Pumps 

      Gaydon, Peter (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      As the compliance date of January 27, 2020 approaches, the complexity of the US DOE Energy Conservation Standard (ECS) and Test Procedure (TP) for Pumps leaves many pump manufacturers, distributors, engineering procurement ...
    • Optimizing Pumping Systems with Proven Engineering Assessment Processes and Methodologies 

      Gaydon, Peter; Walters, Trey (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      When pump systems are not optimized for best efficiency, they drain corporate profits with higher energy and maintenance costs, shorten mean time between repairs and increase CO2 emissions. Optimized pump systems are more ...
    • PL04 - Understanding the Effects of Selecting a Pump Performance Test Acceptance Grades 

      Gaydon, Peter; Iseppon, Al; Mrkvicka, Rodney (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment StationTexas A & M University. Libraries, [2019])
      There are good reasons for requiring the tightest test acceptance tolerances. That is why they are listed in industry accepted pump testing standards, ANSI/HI 14.6, ANSI/HI 11.6 and ISO 9906. There are also applications ...
    • PT01 - Monitoring Vibration and Other Critical Machine Conditions 

      Marscher, William; Adams, Ron; Calafell, Dag; Bradshaw, Simon; Claxton, Jack; Onari, Maki; Voyles, Monroe; Bruck, Morg; Atkins, Ken; Satish, Hemanth; Donley, Richard; Boyadjis, Paul; Lagas, Nicolas; Gaydon, Peter; Yarnot, Brian (Turbomachinery LaboratoryTexas A&M Engineering Experiment StationTexas A & M University. Libraries, [2019])
      Condition monitoring methods Effectiveness of condition monitoring on rotating equipment Value of, and ROI of, condition-based monitoring Vertical pump monitoring Below ground monitoring in vertical pumps Vertical pump ...
    • PT02 - Methods to Determine and Specify Pump Dynamic Analysis 

      Gaydon, Peter; Claxton, Jack; Cropper, Mick; Marscher, William (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment StationTexas A & M University. Libraries, [2019])
      Vibration caused by resonance is an industry problem for new and retrofit applications that persists due to lack of specification and upfront analysis. To limit the chances of resonant vibration, dynamic analysis of the ...
