When it comes to saving money in electric motor-driven processes, we find that many businesses are initially sceptical about the benefits of variable-speed drives. That’s despite VSDs being commonplace in all industries and able to reduce energy consumption by as much as 60%.
As if proof were needed, automation giant ABB has created the EnergySave Calculator, an interactive application allowing users to compare the efficiency of their fan, pump or compressor application and receive a projection based on the use of its variable-speed drives.
By entering data such as current flow control method, motor power and yearly running time, users are presented with an accurate forecast of cost and CO2 reductions following the installation of an ABB drive.
The annual savings prediction allows users to calculate their likely return on investment, which in many cases is within 12 months.
This interactive tool is quick, easy and free to use, so have a go at the EnergySave Calculator here.
If you’d like to go one step further and witness the impact of an ABB drive in your application, give Gibbons Drive Hire a call. We offer ABB drives for hire to allow you to compare energy performance before and after installation, so you can see the savings for yourself before committing to an order.
We have ABB drives for every application, there’s no obligation to buy and hire terms are flexible. We’ll even deliver, install and commission your ABB hire drive and remove it at the end of your trial period.
