Refuse Site Lamby Way
The refuse site at Lamby way in Cardiff as 4 hydraulic press balers which operate throughout the day. The Bollegraaf Baler idle while they are loaded, which provides an ideal opportunity for savings. Our engineers first logged the run profile of the baler then installed a our SC399 control to optimise the power flow to meet loading requirements. The overall saving across all 4 bailers was over £12,000 per year with no effect on operation.
Fixed speed drives are an effective way to reduce AC Induction Motor running costs as fount in this Baler. SavaControls are intelligent controllers for fixed speed motors, suitable for almost any motor size and application. Our controls can extend motor life, reduce maintenance costs, and save on running costs.
