Hydra-Cell Pumps Reduce Industrial Energy Use Up to 50 Percent

True positive displacement action and minimal internal losses achieve high efficiencies from pump shaft to hydraulic power

Published: Thursday, February 17, 2022 - 13:58

(Wanner International: Church Crookham, UK) -- Wanner International can reduce the total energy use by up to a half for some industries that rely on pumps for their processes. Focusing on the importance of reducing energy consumption in the wake of COP26—the most recent annual UN climate change conference—the company is playing its part toward a more sustainable future.

Wanner provides pumps for a range of industries across the globe, from oil and gas, through to food production, chemical, and pharmaceutical production. Of course, it can’t solve the carbon crisis on its own, but it is examining every pump it manufactures, helping customers reduce energy use by careful placement of Hydra-Cell pumps, and squeezing carbon out of the system.

Choosing the right pump technology can positively affect 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 use.

Alternative pump technologies with inherent internal losses, which get larger as internal parts wear, lose efficiency as the discharge pressure goes above 10 bar. They only get worse with increasing pressure.

Some of Wanner’s Hydra-Cell pumps have been operating reliably in the field for more than 25 years, which again frees resources that can be devoted to improving sustainability.

Considering that some industries in which Wanner operates, such as oil and gas, are shifting heavily into renewables, 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, comments: “Switch on your TV, and you will see climate disasters around the world taking lives, homes, and livelihoods, and also destroying ecosystems. We’ve seen soaring temperatures causing wildfires that ravaged Greece and Australia, and unprecedented levels of rainfall that led to severe flooding in Germany and South Asia. Around the world, everyone is being affected by climate change.

“And everyone needs to be part of the solution,” he continues. “We are dedicated to enabling our customers to save energy, to save resources, and we hope that with our leadership, they will follow this example across the whole of their supply chains.”
