Ronak Monga, Segment Development Manager – Building Services for Gulf, Levant & Pakistan, shared knowledge on changing trends in the industry. This included new energy saving technology and how pressure boosting in commercial buildings can save up to 33% energy without compromising consumer comfort, by operating boosters in proportional pressure and connect multiple remote pressure sensors in the same system. In addition, the seminar highlighted the key elements of mastering pump sizing and selection, allowing experts make the right decision, right at the start.
The aim of the training was to bring members’ levels of skills and knowledge in latest pumping technology on par with that of the best technologically advanced engineers in the world and, in doing so, connect with both recent engineering graduates and long-serving professional engineers, who will become ambassadors to dissipate the knowledge throughout the organization and beyond.
Feedback from the consultants was extremely positive, with many recognizing that Domestic water systems in buildings can prevent many challenges, such as ensuring adequate water pressure in all parts of the system and keeping both water and power consumption at acceptable levels.
