NEPIC member Tomlinson Hall will be sharing its pump expertise, in conjunction with Grundfos and CRANE ChemPharma Energy, at a breakfast event which will take place from 8.30am-11.30am on November 10 at Grundfos Manufacturing, Sunderland.

The event will help companies understand how to optimise the size and specification of their pumps, gain knowledge on how to use pumps that can save energy, and learn about new technologies that can help to reduce energy consumption.

It will feature practical tips on pump efficiency and delegates will be able to tap into the engineering and product knowledge of representatives of Tomlinson Hall, Grundfos and CRANE ChemPharma Energy.
