A recent ControlGlobal.com article explored the energy savings of variable frequency drive (VFD)-based centrifugal pumps versus control valves in flow control applications. The article, Eliminating the Control Valve sums its position in the subtitle, “Valves Are Energy Hogs; They Stick; They’re Prone to Mechanical Failure. So Why the Reluctance to Replace Them With VFDs?” The […]
