Pumps, Motors & Drives
Energy-efficient pumps, motors, and drives can yield considerable savings when optimized and properly sized.
A drive controls the speed of a motor, which rotates a pump or fan to move fluid. Proper sizing of motors, pumps, and fans is the most important factor in a system’s overall energy efficiency. Variable frequency drives (VFDs) can often generate significant savings, too. Their load-matching technology allows a motor to run only as fast as needed, saving energy and reducing wear on equipment. Good maintenance and timely repairs are also key to keeping your system running efficiently.
