Energy efficiency benefits of sine pumps
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group has produced a white paper that sets out how Mee (MasoSine energy efficiency) curves can be used as a powerful and proven tool for demonstrating that sine pump technology is able to deliver significant benefits.
For pumping highly viscous products, easy-to-use Mee curves show clear evidence that sine pumps require up to 50% less power than lobe or circumferential piston pumps, particularly when pumping viscous fluids. In fact, the curves are able to demonstrate that the higher the viscosity, the more the savings.
Further benefits of sine pumps include low net inlet pressure requirements and minimised potential for cavitation. In addition, the significant savings in electricity consumption mean a greatly reduced carbon footprint.
All of these facts can be evidenced using Mee curves, which were first developed by WMFTG due to the inherent energy efficient characteristics of sinusoidal technology. The curves help identify the correct size of pump and drive.
