Identifying opportunities to double efficiency
Published:  07 March, 2023

RUBIX, a market leading pan-European distributor of industrial products and services, has released a new ‘Quick wins to cut energy waste’ report, which addresses inefficiency issues in motor-driven systems.

Industrial motor-driven systems – including compressors, pumps and fans – represent more than two-thirds of electricity consumption in industry, yet they are typically only around 36% efficient.

Rubix’ ‘Quick wins to cut energy waste’ report sets out the opportunities for efficiency improvement across the system. These include retrofitting variable speed drives to existing motors to ensure they only use as much energy as they need for the job they are doing.

Using the correct motor size for the application, switching to energy efficient models and correctly regulating their speed will also increase efficiency.
