Process industries, such as food processing, require an uninterrupted flow of production for successful operation. Such a continuous mode of operation requires significant power, which places quite a heavy load on the energy grid. While energy consumption, and therefore cost, is a main concern for those in process industries, safety and sanitation is the highest priority — which is why it is crucial to have a reliable power quality solution to avoid unplanned stops and strengthen your electrical system overall.
Process plants are often energy-intensive operations, especially as automation becomes more and more common. Their highly advanced machinery and equipment represents a significant capital investment. While this technical boost contributes to a successful business outcome, the sensitive nature of such machines makes them vulnerable to power disturbances and other related problems, including trips, unplanned stops, equipment failure, reduced equipment lifetime, and flicker.
Advantages for you
ADF Power Tuning can monitor and compensate electrical disturbances at very high speeds. It improves the plant’s overall energy network, minimizes stoppages, protects sensitive electronics as well as non-electronic equipment parts, and lowers the facility’s power bill.
ADF Power Tuning monitors and compensates the power in the grid at lightning speed. The quickness of this solution works to prevent surges and transients that can damage monitoring or control systems in automated plants. Thanks to the swift, active, and thorough monitoring of ADF Power Tuning, uptime and production is increased considerably.
Optimize your network
With the comprehensive capabilities that come with ADF Power Tuning, it is possible to compensate all power available in the grid. The benefit for your facility is secured network stability, even with the demands from lighting, computers, or other equipment.
Making facility-wide improvements
Have you ever experienced a mechanical or operational problem that seemed to have no apparent cause? With its lightning fast monitoring, ADF technology eliminates “ghost” problems in other areas of the facility due to unseen electrical problems in the grid.
Meet standards with complete peace of mind
When it comes to regulatory compliance, you want to be certain that your equipment and operation is sufficient without having to worry. With ADF Power Tuning, your facility’s power will always be “clean.” This low harmonic solution will minimize the effect that the facility’s heavy energy load will have on the grid—thereby helping you avoid fines or other legal repercussions due to non-compliance with electrical standards.
Lower your energy consumption, lower your power bill
Sustained high power quality means more efficient, problem-free production, largely due to its ability to reduce losses (heat energy) in the transformer. With ADF Power Tuning, you will simultaneously conserve energy and lower your energy costs.
