World Pumps May/June 2024 issue – online now!

The May/June 2024 issue of World Pumps magazine looks at heat pumps, dewatering pumps, liquid hydrogen pumps and testing standards in the pump sector.



Heat pumps form a central part of decarbonization strategies, yet currently only meet 10% of the global heating needs in buildings. With data and insights from the EHPA, NREL, McKinsey and others, World Pumps explores the challenges and opportunities in relation to retrofitting heat pumps, particularly in a commercial and industrial context in our cover story The heat pump retrofit challenge.

One of the biggest challenges when building a tunnel or developing a mine is the high likelihood of water ingress which can hamper operations and be hazardous for workers. World Pumps examines how dewatering pumps play a key role in major construction and mining projects in our A deep dive article.

While EVs have long been seen as the best alternative to gas and diesel engines, momentum is growing behind the use of hydrogen as an increasingly viable clean energy source. In the feature article In from the cold, World Pumps looks at how liquid hydrogen pumps are playing a critical role in this fuel of the future.

The Hydraulic Institute discusses some of the most important testing standards in the pump sector and reveals how industry trends and challenges are changing design requirements in our Test to success article.

Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview – Top marks  – the University of Alabama’s Dr Phillip Ligrani takes us behind the scenes of his award-winning research into innovative pumping devices.

We also meet Ben Warren, a team leader on SPP Pumps’ Future Cell project and winner of the World Pumps-sponsored Rising Star Award at the 2024 Pump Industry Awards, and find out about his developing role and long-term goals.
