3 reasons to opt for an energy efficient electric motor
First of all, it is important to understand what an energy-efficient electric motor really is. These types of motors are characterized by having the ability to achieve the same strength as a normal motor, but with much lower energy consumption. Until 2030, the European Commission expects that with the use of this type of motors 40 million tons of CO2 emissions will be avoided and the household energy bill will be reduced by about 20 million euros.
3 reasons why you should opt for this type of motors:
Although these motors have a higher cost than normal, the use of this type of product makes their savings many times greater. The energy capacity of this motor allows it to pay back the money invested a few months later since the costs of use are much lower. In this way, it becomes a very lucrative product in the long term.
These motors are designed so that there are as few maintenances as possible. Of course, they do not escape the usual maintenance, but they are not the type of motor that requires specific care because they can run for years without major repairs. Another advantage is that these types of motors are ideal for the heaviest industries due to their design conceived to handle any adversity, whether heavy, dirty, or even chemical materials.
3. Energy savings
Electric motors account for 40% of total world electricity consumption and 70% of industrial electricity consumption. For these same reasons, energy-efficient electric motors become an asset. This type of motors are classified into different energy efficiency classes – IE1, IE2, IE3, IE4, IE5 - and their energy consumption is much lower than a normal motor. Each of these classes means that the next class is even more efficient than the previous class.
Bernati has three-phase motors with three different levels of energy efficiency IE1 (Standard), IE3 (Premium), and IE4 (Super Premium). They are available in aluminum housing and cast-iron housing.
