It is estimated that air in pipelines results in a minimum of 10% increase in pumping costs – purely from the air pockets present in virtually every pumping/pipeline.
- The Energy Star Program of the EPA estimates that about $4Billion is spent annually in the US alone for energy costs to run drinking water and wastewater utilities. If the sector could reduce energy use by just 10% through investments in energy efficiency collectively it would save about $400 million annually.
- Properly applied and installed air valves have been proven to reduce energy costs by an average of 10%, as pump run times are decreased, and the energy required to pump the same volume of water/wastewater is reduced as the air is evacuated.
