A comprehensive analysis of pump performance
An Energy Audit is a diagnostic tool developed by Grundfos specialists to identify excessive energy consumption. The service is based on specific pump performance measurements. It focuses on the amount of material the pump handles and on flow variations during a short and well-defined period.
During the audit, a Grundfos specialist measures countable values such as flow and energy consumption; analogue values such as pressure, temperature, and water levels; and incident rates such as pump start/stop, and valve open/close.
Based on these metrics, the audit assesses the overall efficiency of your pumps and proposes changes to improve efficiency. Final suggestions are based on calculations of potential savings, CO2 emission reductions and payback time on the up-front investment.
How an energy audit works
An energy audit is the most comprehensive analysis of your pumps offered by Grundfos. Here is how it works:
Initial Contact – We pre-qualify your site through a discussion of relevant site information or an Energy Check.
Diagnosis – We inspect your premises and draw up a list of performance data and installed pumps, pinpointing focus areas.
Proposal – The energy audit is carried out by logging data, resulting in a load profile for the audited pump(s).
Fulfilment – You receive a printed report with full details of the audit results and recommendations.
Assessment – Should you choose to replace or upgrade pumps, we can help you select the right pump solution for your system based on optimum performance and energy and cost savings.
Follow-up – We will follow up on the performed service to ensure optimal service delivery and satisfactory pump performance.
