Energy Efficiency

            Variable speed drive up to 630 kW for Pump and Fan applications in Industry and Infrastructures





            Frequency inverters for 3-phase asynchronous motors up to 630 kW for Pump and Fan applications in Industry and Infrastructures

            Value proposition



            • 72 % of consumed electricity is used to turn on┬ámotors. 63 % of this energy is used for fluid applications like pumps and fans. AC drives allow you to reduce energy consumption by 50% on fans compared to conventional solutions (flow variation with mechanical devices) and 20% to 30% on pumps according to their characteristics.
            • Fan example: at 80% of nominal flow, the energy consumption is 95% of nominal power with conventional installations instead of 50% with AC drves.
            • Even thought flow variation is not needed, most of the applications are oversized (pesimistic estimation of hydraulic loses). Optimising the pressure, AC drives save 20% of energy compared to conventional solutions.
            • Using ECO8 software, you can easely estimate the energy saving according to your pump or fan applications and duty cycle.
