Hammelmann high pressure plunger pumps are particularly economic in their use of energy. Thanks to intelligent design, use of high grade materials and precise manufacture of components 93% to 98% of the shaft power is converted to hydraulic energy.
Drive mechanism of a Hammelmann high pressure pump
Energy efficient pumps
The economic efficiency of a pump is defined by the amount of energy it consumes. The diagram above indicates a typical division of costs of a high pressure pump over its’ life cycle.
The largest portion of the costs is clearly attributable to energy consumption whereas the investment cost at 19% is relatively low.
