The article reports on the findings of a study conducted by BASF pumps chief Ing Friedrich-Wilhelm Hennecke on the life cycle costs of pumps in Great Britain. The study shows that the life cycle cost (LCC) of running and maintaining pumps is more significant than the initial capital investment needed to buy the equipment. Calculations of LCC include all costs from initial purchase through maintenance and repairs to environmental factors.
