For many decades, booster pumps have replaced piston pumps in the drinking water supply sector of higher regions. The centrifugal pumps cause low investment costs, but the follow-up costs are often ignored by the increased energy requirements. Rising energy costs ensure ever higher operating costs for waterworks. In the course of the energy revolution, a doubling of the electricity costs for the operation of the pumps is to be expected in the next few years.
For these reasons, greater emphasis must be placed on energy efficiency, sustainability and reliability in the selection of pump technology. URACA plunger pumps fulfill all these requirements perfectly and are characterized by high efficiencies and constant flow rates.
