Help reduce energy waste and spiralling electricity bills

Rising energy prices create a need for energy-efficient motor control solutions. To help reduce energy waste and spiralling electricity bills, engineers are turning to variable speed drives as an alternative to fixed speed controllers and throttling devices such as dampers in the case of fan systems and valves in the case of pumping.

Energy consumption in a centrifugal fan or pump application follows the affinity laws, which means that flow is proportional to speed, pressure is proportional to the square of speed, and power is proportional to the cube of speed. This means if an application only needs 80 percent flow, the fan or pump will run at 80 percent of rated speed and only requires 50 percent of rated power. In other words, reducing speed by 20 percent requires only 50 percent of the power.

Here at ADM Controls, we have many years experience in energy saving and can offer a complete package from initial free-of-charge site survey through to quotation, supply and installation of the equipment. Call 01379 608640 or email for more details

As soon as the equipment is installed your fans and/or pumps will be running super efficiently with a low carbon footprint and much reduced electricity bills.
