In the following case, motor speed is a complex problem as they require slow speeds for running – but then aren’t able to achieve proper cooling.

Success Story – Investing in a Drive to Achieve Necessary Motor Speed

Industry – Food & Beverage
Region – Northwest PA
Cost Savings – $33,516

Problem
The customer was losing a lot of juice in the stemming process. The application required lower hertz – so low that the motor wasn’t being properly cooled. The excess motor heat was causing the customer to lose 10 gallons per hour of juice.

Solution
ErieTec provided the customer with a drive that allowed the proper ratio to achieve motor speed that allowed both clean up and normal running.

Savings Calculation
10 gallons per hour x 24 hours per day x 7 days per week x 5 weeks (the length of the season) = 8,400 gallons. Multiply that by the market cost of juice ($3.99/gallon) = $33,516.
