Variable Speed Drive Pump Systems Save Energy

June 24, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

EatonEaton’s new variable speed drive (VSD) pump systems can provide up to 70 percent energy savings for equipment in the machine building, manufacturing, oil and gas and marine industries, depending on the machine duty cycle. The industrial pump system, available in open- or closed-loop motion control configurations, reduces operational costs by allowing quieter machine operation, reducing or eliminating cooling needs and allowing for pump downsizing.

Running pumps at a variable speed also reduces noise pollution, protecting operators’ hearing while meeting noise regulations. As equipment efficiency increases, oil coolers can be downsized, limiting the amount of oil used and extending the life of seals and oil. Eaton’s VSD solution also helps machine owners meet Energy related Products (ErP) directive 2009/125/EC.

The complete VSD system can include one or more pumps, selected from an offering of PVM variable piston pumps, Hydrokraft variable piston pumps or VMQ fixed vane pumps.
