Video Shows How to Save Energy by Controlling Water Flow and Pressure


The short video, “How to Save Energy by Controlling Water Flow and Water Pressure,” uses an instrumented test rig to demonstrate the difference in energy consumption between closing a valve versus using a variable-speed drive to control water flow from a centrifugal pump.

Industrial distributor Motion Industries teamed up with ABB-Baldor to produce the video, which is 2013’s first on its “MiHow2” channel, a product/application solutions series designed to share practical industrial applications that viewers can adapt in their own facilities.

“Energy savings is and will continue to be a hot topic for industry,” said Randy Breaux, Motion Industries’ senior vice-president of marketing, product management and strategic planning. “More and more facilities are becoming serious about energy efficiency and finding different ways to save money in their operations. We were thrilled to have experts from ABB-Baldor demonstrate how using a variable-frequency drive can result in a lot of real dollar savings.”

Each MiHow2 video is filmed in a workshop setting, and features a Motion Industries host with a guest from an industrial manufacturer, demonstrating a product or application. Additional MiHow2 videos are scheduled to be posted to the new channel in coming weeks and throughout 2013.
