Video: See for yourself how ABB drives improve energy efficiency

You may have heard a lot about the benefits of variable-speed drives in industrial applications, but there’s nothing like seeing one of these devices in action. That’s why we think you should take a look at this excellent video from ABB which explains the power of variable-speed drives in a clear, straightforward way. In the demonstration, a motor-powered fan blowing a balloon is controlled in two different ways – first by a damper then by an ABB drive. See the results for yourself:

The technology behind variable-speed drives may be complex but the savings are plain to see – around 60% for motor-driven applications such as fans, pumps and conveyors. These remarkable savings mean that the hardware pays for itself within a matter of months in many cases.

Gibbons has enjoyed a successful long-term partnership with ABB and we’re proud to be a founder member of their Authorised Value Provider scheme for variable-speed drives. Being part of this exclusive group allows us access to a global network of ABB products and expertise which we pass on to our clients.
