Keeping water treatment systems running through flood conditions

Keeping water treatment systems running through flood conditions
It started a long time before the industrial revolution, manufacturers extracting water from local rivers and streams, and the process is still commonly used today, in applications from energy generation to paper making. Unlike their forebears, however, modern systems inevitably include various treatment processes to ensure the extracted water meets appropriate quality, safety and process control standards.

What role do motors and drives play in the water industry?

What role do motors and drives play in the water industry?
One our most vital resources, but one that we also tend to take for granted, is of course, water. For the water industry the processes that are required to maintain this service are numerous and provide many challenges in terms of efficiency and reliability. One of the most crucial components within the water treatment and delivery process is the humble electric motor, which along with its associated drive systems, provide the power necessary to keep the cycle in motion.

Are motors the missing puzzle piece in drive train efficiency puzzle?

Are motors the missing puzzle piece in drive train efficiency puzzle?
Just ten years ago, headline efficiency figures could only be dreamed of, now manufacturers are chasing them, fuelled by the introduction of more stringent IE efficiency classes. It's obviously a positive thing for the industry, but it makes you think is motor efficiency just the tip of the iceberg?

Bauer Gear Motor hosts energy efficiency technology forum

Bauer Gear Motor hosts energy efficiency technology forum
Electric motors are estimated to consume 70% of all the energy used in industry. Bearing this in mind, it’s no small wonder that there is an ongoing process of legislation requiring new technologies to adhere to ever higher standards of efficiency. Bauer Gear Motor offers a wide range of energy efficient solutions that meet current IE2, and future IE3 and IE4, regulations; it recently hosted a technology forum to help its customers understand the latest developments in the industry and discuss the best practices for maximising energy efficiency in the drive train.

Bauer delivers IE4 savings for hazardous chemical process

Improving the energy efficiency ratings of electric motors is a worldwide goal, but exemptions in the regulations mean that for applications in potentially explosive atmospheres there is no obligation to implement the latest technology. However, for one oleochemical processing company improving energy efficiency is an important objective, which led it to consult with Bauer Gear Motor when a number of ATEX motors needed to be replaced.

Bauer delivers substantial energy savings for pharmaceutical production

Bauer delivers substantial energy savings for pharmaceutical production
Production processes that run 24/7 need reliable and energy efficient drive systems to maintain a cost effective process. For one pharmaceutical manufacturer the drive for efficiency led it to replace some existing equipment with the latest IE4 electric motor technology from Bauer Gear Motor; reducing the kW power size by 60% whilst also reducing the weight and improving overall drive efficiency.

Integrated design concept for drive solutions on bulk material handling equipment delivers substantial improvement in efficiency

Integrated design concept for drive solutions on bulk material handling equipment delivers substantial improvement in efficiency
When it comes to bulk materials handling, geared motors are used to power a wide variety of handling equipment from pumps to conveyors and bucket elevators. Different materials and operating conditions mean that each application can pose an individual challenge requiring expertise and a wide range of solutions in order to guarantee both product flexibility and universal reliability, real-world gains in efficiency however can only be achieved through an integrated design approach.

Overhead conveyor powered by Bauer improves productivity for bottling plant

Overhead conveyor powered by Bauer improves productivity for bottling plant
While forklifts are excellent tools for transporting heavy pallets from place to place, they can also pose a very real risk to employee safety and cause damage to stock; this is especially true in an extremely busy working environment. One leading Swiss drinks manufacturer found that its bottling plant was so busy that driver error was having a real impact on productivity. Fortunately it was able to reduce operating costs and increase productivity by installing an electrical overhead conveyor (EOC) with vehicles powered by Bauer Gear Motor.

Integrated and flexible design concept for drive technology in marine applications

Integrated and flexible design concept for drive technology in marine applications
The marine environment poses a number of challenges for those who design vessels and the equipment which is used on board. As equipment gets larger so the demands for more efficient systems increase as well; all the while having to contend with the inhospitable environment encountered at sea. To deliver a reliable and efficient product, while still achieving the requirements and specifications of the industry, demands an integrated and flexible approach from designers.

Prepared for 2015's motor efficiency standards?

Prepared for 2015's motor efficiency standards?
Efficiency regulations for electric motors will apply in Europe from January 1st 2015, whereby any installation using a 7.5-375kW motor must use either an IE3-rated or IE2 motor installed with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD). Aimed at improving the overall efficiency of the installed equipment across Europe, the regulation is supported by EN50598, a standard which benchmarks the efficiency ratings of electric motor drives.

Motor and drive efficiency – A collective approach for better results

Motor and drive efficiency – A collective approach for better results
Efficiency, reliability and total cost of ownership are all terms that are at the forefront of engineering considerations, however looking at items of equipment on an individual basis may not deliver the maximum benefits. By looking at the wider picture and combining the best technology from individual areas it is possible to achieve much more significant savings and efficiencies.

Gear motors key in steel mill overhead crane series

Gear motors key in steel mill overhead crane series
When Kranbau Köthen was commissioned to develop a new series of cranes for use in the scrap yard of a global steel producer’s mill in Luxembourg, it turned to gear motor specialist, Bauer, part of Altra Industrial Motion. Looking at all the issues of the Kranbau project, engineers at Bauer developed a solution, based on modified versions of their BK series of bevel gear motors. BK80 models were identified as the best choice for the cranes’ travel drives and BK90s for the trolley drives.
