Wanner International has announced that it can reduce the total energy usage by up to a half for some industries that rely heavily on pumps for their processes, focusing on the importance of reducing energy consumption in the wake of COP26.

Wanner provides pumps for a range of industries across the globe, from oil and gas, through to food production, chemical and pharmaceutical production. It is examining every pump it manufactures, helping customers reduce energy usage by careful placement of Hydra-Cell pumps, and working to eliminate carbon from the system.

Choosing the right pump technology can have an effect on energy usage. The Hydra-Cell pump’s true positive displacement action and minimal internal losses achieve high efficiencies from pump shaft to hydraulic power; this combined with the wide range of flow rate controllability ensures optimum energy usage. Alternative pump technologies with inherent internal losses, which increase as internal parts wear, start to become less efficient as the discharge pressure goes above 10 bar and worsens with increasing pressure.

Some of the industries in which Wanner operates, such as oil and gas, are shifting heavily into renewables and so the flexibility of the Hydra-Cell pump to handle many different liquids coupled with its high energy efficiency and reliability has a large role to play in reducing the carbon footprint.

Paul Davis, Wanner International’s managing director said that around the world, everyone is being affected by climate change and everyone needs to be part of the solution. He added that the company is focused on enabling its customers to save energy and resources and hope that they will follow this example across the whole of their supply chains.
