Consider: a 1% efficiency increase can save as much as $2,500 of energy during the course of a motor's 20 year life. This video takes a detailed look at a line of motors featuring copper rotor technology. Offering efficiencies of almost 94%, the new NEMA motors are said to exceed even the most demanding NEMA and IEC standards. Minimal heat sources within the motor itself, high heat dissipation thanks to a finned frame design, and a "unique" fan also contribute to the high efficiency. Now consider: how many motors are operating throughout your plant?

Synchronous Motors Pay Their Way
There are strong arguments for replacing DC motors with synchronous motors in high power, heavy load applications. Synchronous motors offer reduced motor starting current and power factor correction. They deliver high torques and constant speed under load variations. And, they are smaller. Thanks to their higher efficiencies, these motors promise to pay for themselves in short order.
Experts Needed for ANSI EESCC American National Standards Institute, Inc.
Join the ANSI Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC).
Experts are invited to participate in work on a standardization roadmap to advance energy efficiency in the United States. EESCC will coordinate a U.S. approach to energy efficiency standardization activities.
Baldor understands the impact of electric motor energy-efficiency to the "bottom line." Many years ago in 1983, Baldor debuted the premium efficient Super-E motor line, an industry first. Since then Baldor has maintained the lead in providing the most energy-efficient electric motors and drives in the industry.
Custom Energy-efficient Panel Cooling
Noren Products, Inc.
Air conditioning used to be standard issue for sealed electronic enclosures. Now, most electronics will run fine at 50ÃÂ° C or less. The heat exchanger is now becoming the cooling system of choice. It's also easy to install, lightweight, and 10x as efficient as an air conditioner. From Noren Products, Inc.
Diagnostic Tool Spots Costly Leaks
Leaky compressed-air systems hurt both the production bottom line and the environment. So a new system has been developed that can reportedly detect air leaks as they occur on a daily basis and confirm the exact value of a leak. The system, says the manufacturer, is easy-to-use and easy-to-integrate into existing machinery.
Best-kept Secrets of Torque Motors
In the past, cost and sensitivity to harsh operating conditions reduced the appeal of permanent magnet, synchronous torque motors. Recent improvements in footprint, energy efficiency, and construction, however, demand a second look. This piece from InTech examines complete and built-in torque motors, explains why the technology is well suited for certain motion control applications, and points out how lower energy consumption offsets the initial investment.
Pneumatics: Three Paths to Energy Efficiency
A recent study in Germany found that leaks from compressed air and other industrial pneumatic systems accounted for 42% of wasted energy consumption. To optimize your pneumatic systems, learn how leak detection, design, and advanced diagnostics work together to yield significant energy savings.
VSDs Level-out Pump-pressure Demands
A manufacturer of plastic automotive fuel tanks discovers three ideal applications for variable-speed drives, and has a dramatically reduced energy bill to show for it. An article at Engineer Live details the savings plan, including the use of VSDs on chilled-water pumps used in blow-molding machines. The drives prevent wide swings in water pressure, eliminating maintenance headaches.
Blow Away Energy Requirements
A manufacturer has chosen what are billed as high-efficiency three-phase motors and variable-speed drives to power its newest energy-efficient screw blowers. Such blowers consume large amounts of energy in many industrial processes. Besides saving energy, the selected motors also feature extended product life and reduced maintenance.
How Fan Design Cuts Energy Consumption
Many components in HVAC systems are gaining efficiency, but what about fans? HPAC Engineering has some clever ideas for fan-energy reduction, from reducing system pressure drop to choosing the right fan. The report also recommends combining coils, or using bypass paths for inactive units, and explains how to choose the right energy-recovery system.
