" unique energy savings on lighting
With our associates, we attend many energy saving
exhibitions and presentations. Rather than simply handing out brochures and
successful case histories we give interactive demonstrations of real, cost
effective and simple solutions to saving energy in a wide selection of
Industrial and Commercial applications. For example:-
||Our lighting rig demonstrates over
50% energy saving on fluorescent lighting using our unique voltage stabilised
The demonstration rig, shown above, has 2 x 36 Watt
tubes on magnetic starters and 2 x 36 Watts on the Nu Tech High Frequency (HF),
voltage stabilised ballast. This is a common fitting in may Offices and
During the exhibition our power meters showed the
NEC delivering 245 Volts, a 2% overvoltage.
The conventional magnetic starters consumed 102
watts against the 72 watts nominal power, the excess 30watts of power clearly
being shown (and felt!) as heat in the magnetic control gear.
The Nu Tech HF ballast, stabilised at 230 Volts,
used 68 watts, with no heat output in the ballast, a 30% saving on the energy
Now, if we consider a building, such as an office or
a hospital, with say 200 light fittings per floor.
200 luminaires @ 30 watts saving=6kW per hour SAVING
or 6kW x 8760 hours x £0.08=£ 4,204.00
SAVING per year per floor.
Further maintenance savings are possible since the
HF lighting will last over 27,000 hours compared to the standard 8,000
"Powerboss" Intelligent control of electric
||The myth is that electric motors
"only take the power the need". Visitors were shown that the reality
is much different.
Each of our ALBANY gear pumps, was fitted with a
"Powerboss" dynamic motor controller. One was run continuously under
the control of Powerboss, the other we only switched "in" as required
to demonstrate the energy savings potential to visitors.
In addition to witnessing the power saving of the
Powerboss intelligent motor control, visitors were able to "feel the
heat" and "hear the noise difference" in the uncontrolled pump
In industrial and commercial applications, in
addition to soft starting ANY electric motors, Powerboss will make energy
savings of typically 5 to 23%.
"ESL" The oil that pays for itself, or how to beat
the climate change levy!
||We run a matched pair of ALBANY gear
pumps, each pumping a 15W40 motor oil.
ESL supplement has been added at a 5% concentration
into one of the oil containers.
Using a very accurate WATT METER, a power saving of
almost 5% is clearly demonstrated.
Whilst our pumps are only nominally 250 Watts, just
consider the implications of more typical 5% savings on say, a heavy 250kW
drive in a process industry, such as, quarrying, cement, steel or even a power
station coal crusher.
Assume £ 0.08/kWhr to operate a
250 kW motor continuously for a year.
8,600 x £0.08 x 250=£
5% saving=£ 8,600
is on ONE drive, how many do YOU have?
As a "FUEL SAVER", added
to vehicle engines (and transmissions), ESL will improve the fuel consumption
by around 5%.
