Municipality Saves Money with Eddy Current


Recent Refurbishment saves municipality money at pumping station for a New England Wastewater Service Plant In today’s market, it is not always necessary to replace the entire Eddy Current Variable Speed drive system. Budget restraints and construction costs on large projects can hinder a complete remodel of an operation. This has been the case for large-horsepower applications that require medium-voltage (2,300 or 4,160 volt) motors. Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) in these applications are large, expensive and often require space that must be added on to existing buildings and be equipped with air conditioning systems that consume more power. A [...]

First Choice for High Performance


Eddy Current Drives: First Choice for High Performance and Reliable Operation You have several choices when it comes to drive technologies. But when the cost of downtime enters the decision making, the field narrows… to eddy current. Why? Because no other drive system operates with such simplicity, with so few parts to wear out, and with so little maintenance. Once you pencil in the total cost of downtime for your process, the lost material, the lost labor, the lost output, you’ll see why many system designers and engineers specify high performance eddy current drives. Simplicity makes the difference. [...]

Don’t Dismiss Life Cycle Costs


Don’t Dismiss the Life Cycle Cost of Pump Drive Systems When municipalities are in the market for a new pump system there are many cost factors that need to be considered. Efficiency and acquisition cost of the drive system are generally the easiest to identify, but the one that is most often over looked is the Life Cycle cost of the system. The life cycle cost of a piece of equipment is defined as the sum of all costs associated with that equipment from the day it is purchased throughout its entire operating life. The costs that would need [...]

DSI/Dynamatic solves infrastructure problem


Dynamatic Variable Speed Eddy Current Drives and Controls Solve an Aging Infrastructure Problem After 36 years of service, the original controllers, at the Columbus Ohio pump station began to overheat. To compensate, the pump station installed temporary air conditioning to cool the controls. This kept them in service while they made plans for a permanent solution. An Engineering company was contracted to diagnose the problem. They recommend a solution, by designing extensive upgrades to the pump station, including refurbishments to the 41-year-old pumps. They decided that variable speed would still be required, thinking that VFDs would be the obvious choice. [...]

Save the Date for Our Upcoming Webinar: “The Evolution of Variable Speed Drives in the Pump Industry” Variable speed drive technology has been around for many years, however over the past decade with the development of new power devices and magnetic materials VSD methodology has changed course. This course change has given rise to substantial confusion by users and specifiers of variable speed drive equipment. Add to that the difficulty in evaluating efficiency and power factor and the subject of drive selection becomes a daunting task indeed not to mention reliability, maintenance cost and life cycle costing. That fact of the [...]
