Saving Energy For Plastics Companies

Saving Energy For Plastics Companies

Modern plastics facilities can benefit from utilising variable speed drives to help with process control and energy saving.

Energy Saving

For many organisations, energy is one of the top 3 production costs. The energy saving potential of variable speed drives is well documented, but how do you really know what can be saved on each application (we achieve particularly good energy saving results when applying variable speed drives to pumps and fans)? The answer is simple: with an Electric Motor Energy Survey from IDS. We will visit your site, assess the applications and provide conservative energy saving calculations with predicted payback periods. We are happy to assess individual applications as well as entire sites with varied applications.

What Applications?

Essentially, any application driven by an electric motor will benefit from variable speed drive control.

We have been particularly successful with:

  • Extruders
  • Hydraulic power packs
  • Cooling towers
  • Chiller pumps
  • DC motor upgrade to AC
  • Schrage motor upgrade

However, before jumping in it is important for us to understand what you want to achieve prior to making recommendations. Improving process control, avoiding loss of production, saving energy, noise reduction, ac to dc upgrade are all topics we can assist you with. Let’s talk, call us on 0115 944 1036 or email
