Saving energy only works if it's easy

The KSB PumpMeterconnection wirelesslytransfers load profiledata, enablingidentification ofenergy-savingpotential, as well asoperation of pumps attheir best efficiencypoint. The effortrequired by the user isminimal

How do you get people to start thinkingabout energy efficiency as it pertainsto their processes? Despite all of thecoverage in the media, this topic stilldoes not receive enough attention inproduction halls. “It’s not even specificto any one sector or industry: people arejust happy when the pump is running;the questions of ‘How it is running?’and ‘What can be improved?’ are in avery distant second place,” says HeikoFlurschütz, head of industry, at KSBGermany’s Water/Waste Water division.
