Because operational costs ride on efficiency determinations, accurate measurements of losses occurring within the motor are paramount. The reliability of efficiency data is key to any energy-savings plan, and knowing the meaning behind the rating can make or break a smart purchasing decision.

Energy efficiency may not always mean total efficiency.

Last month, we studied the properties and effects of resistive, inductive and capacitive loads in an AC circuit.

Proper alignment of the pump shaft with the driver can reduce vibration and significantly improve reliability.

Although a number of AC motor designs are used, the induction motor is, by far, the most common and will be the topic of this column.

Energy is the largest ongoing cost of mixer operation, so it is vital to carefully consider the energy-to-thrust ratio (sometimes called the “water-to-wire” ratio) for each and every mixer application.
