So we got the pumps a-workin', same as British seamen oughter.

Levy statistical fluctuations from a Random Amplifying Medium
For example Lenzen [Lenzen2010] p. 547 writes: As with wind power, solar power is wel l suited for demands that are insensitive to temporal variations in electricity output, such as water pumping for irrigation, or vehicle charging.
Storing unsteady energy, like photovoltaically generated electric energy, as potential energy
Water cooling was also added to mitigate heating of the pump heads.
Performance of a cryogenic system prototype for the XENON1T Detector
The systems are usually driven by high-pressure pumps, but the growth of more efficient energy-recovery devices has reduced the power consumption of these plants and made them much more viable; however, they remain energy intensive and, as energy costs rise, so will the cost of R.O. water.
Extraction of Freshwater and Energy from Atmosphere
The sea air-water extractor needs the air propeller (pump) in entrance of tube for case when the wind is absent or for the increasing the fresh water production.
Extraction of Freshwater and Energy from Atmosphere
Sea freshwater extractor Let us take the following initial data for estimation: air temperature is t = 30o C, we have 4 tubes, each has radius R = 5 m, speed of pumped air V = 4 m/s, relative h = 1 (after injection of sea water), mw = 0.023 kg/m3 .
Extraction of Freshwater and Energy from Atmosphere
Only when pumped water is clean then one should shut off the pump and wait the least time needed to the well to restore its static level. Hence, the pump should be turned on and off many times until the pumped water is clean just from the beginning of the pumping.
A new approach to the step-drawdown test
The greater part of the heat is dissipated in the anode of a tetrode or in the collector of a linear-beam tube. These electrodes are normally cooled in one of three ways: by blown air (at low power levels), by pumped liquid (usually de-ionized water), or by vapour phase cooling.
