MANUFACTURING: Reduce Energy Costs
Recent Western Cape Business News
INVESTMENT costs for electrical drives are minor when compared to the overall investment in a system or plant.
But it is the energy consumption of the selected drive technology that has a decisive influence on the follow-up costs, according to SEW-Eurodrive.
If one compares all costs incurred during the life cycle of a system, one will notice that energy costs of systems that have not been optimized with respect to their energy consumption can constitute up to 90 % of the follow-up costs.
This shows that optimizing the energy efficiency of each individual component and combining the drive technology to match the specific application will achieve a significant economic benefit.
SEW Eurodrive has added a user friendly energy saving calculator to their website.
The calculator needs only a few details on the application and in return it will give users an estimated energy saving per annum as well as an indication of the amortisation period.
