Linking asset maintenance and energy costs

Linking asset maintenance and energy costs   A recent white paper, Schneider Electric looks the relationship between asset maintenance and energy costs in pumping. Assets such as pumps need maintaining on an ongoing basis, and maintenance costs are 25% of TCO. Thus maintenance practices warrant examination of their contribution to energy-influenced savings. In pumping installations, […]
