ebm-papst is to discuss fan efficiency at this year’s Motor Driven Systems Conference on the 9th – 10th November 2011 at St. Johns Hotel, Solihull
ebm-papst will use this year’s Motor Driven Systems Conference on the 9th – 10th November 2011 at St. Johns Hotel, Solihull to highlight key ways in which organisations optimise their driven systems to maximise energy savings, and as a result reduce their carbon emissions.
Three experts from ebm-papst will be giving talks during the conference; James Cooper, Product Manager; Geoff Lockwood Technical Director; and Dan Hopkins, Technical Manager.
James will present a paper that shows how the selecting of an efficient fan and motor is not enough to deliver the full energy saving benefits companies may require, instead they must consider the complete system. To demonstrate this, James will discuss a project undertaken by ebm-papst for Iceland, where the supermarket initially gained a 34 per cent energy reduction through installation of new high efficiency fans and motors. This reduction was subsequently increased to 56% as a result of redesigning the Air Handling Unit (AHU) to optimise the new fan system.
Geoff will take a closer look at how EC technology works and what issues should be considered when integrating EC motors into a fan system Geoff will also incorporate how EC motors can deliver energy savings even greater than those achieved by Iceland. And finally, Dan will clarify the difference between static efficiency and total efficiency, highlighting why the specific application and fan type will influence the method used.
Geoff commented: “A number of experts from ebm-papst will be available in the product demonstration area at the event, so anybody who would like to discuss key requirements and identify how ebm-papst can help reduce their energy consumption should visit our stand.”
