UK-based corrosion protection specialist, Corroserve, has recently announced further investment in its Thermodynamic Pump Monitoring (TPM) system, allowing it to monitor the performance and efficiency of any Class C industrial pump over its working life.

Calibrated and certified by the Yamari Standard Laboratory in Japan, the updated TPM system calculates pump efficiency using the thermodynamic method based on the first law of thermodynamics. The effect is that energy losses in the pumping process are transferred to the pumped liquid in the form of heat energy, causing a rise in temperature.  The TPM unit measures temperature and pressure at the pump suction and discharge and, by inputting the motor power consumption, the system calculates the flow rate and actual pump performance and efficiency.

TPM identifies pump wear and measures changes in performance and efficiency, allowing the customer to make informed decisions about refurbishment and the optimum time for any work to be carried out. It also identifies the most efficient pumping conditions providing customers with a detailed & accurate report.

The financial investment in TPM testing will be quickly recouped in savings made by reduced energy costs from running a more efficient pump.
