When our team visited the American Water Works Association Annual Convention & Exposition (AWWA ACE16) in June, I learned about the fluid handling industry in-person as I prepared to become the new editor in chief of Flow Control. I am excited to build on this experience in the coming issues as our team works to present you with relevant technical articles, industry news, case studies and more. I hope to meet you as our team travels to industry events to network and view the latest technologies that help you do your jobs.

As energy efficiency continues to grow in importance and practice, it is essential to include sustainable practices in construction projects. Delta Products Corporation begins our cover series on energy efficiency by presenting how its LEED-certified headquarters maintains energy efficiency with a geothermal heating and cooling system. To assist pump operators with pump efficiency and reliability, the Hydraulic Institute details the newly updated standard on rotodynamic pump piping systems.

Columnist David W. Spitzer returns with a discussion of flowmeters downstream of pumps in his Application Corner, and Trelleborg covers new technologies in seawater intake for oil and gas floating production units.

Our team will travel to the 45th Turbomachinery & 32nd Pump Symposia in Houston in September to learn about topics including maintenance, design, troubleshooting and more. If you will be at the show, please stop by and meet us at Booth 1101. Follow us on and off the road via Twitter.
