Danfoss drives set for maximum energy efficiency for water applications
26 May 2017
The VLT AQUA Drive from Danfoss is designed to offer a unique combination of three strengths: energy savings, reduced installation costs, and a dedication to all water and wastewater applications.
This approach, says the company, sets the product ‘above the competition when it comes to overall lifetime savings’.
The considerable daily load variation in water or wastewater treatment plants makes it economically feasible to introduce motor control on rotating equipment such as pumps and blowers.
The new generation VLT AQUA Drive, which now boasts new features and functions, can realistically offer first-year cost savings of between 10-30% compared to traditional drive solutions, says Danfoss.
The user-friendly setup of water and pump settings reduces installation time, adds the company, ensuring a quick route to energy efficiency and motor control.
Specially designed software features help users protect their assets in a number of ways, such as by avoiding water hammer, reducing maintenance on pumps and blowers, and by saving additional energy.
VLT motor controllers operate in applications all over the world and Danfoss VLT Drives’ experts are located in more than 100 countries (recent projects have been completed in Germany, Vietnam, Romania).
