Bekum Injection Molding
HEAT REDUCTION TEST : On the Bekum Injection Molder there are three dominate motors: the pump motor, the top motor, and the conveyor motor. Because these motors are under less strain with THE POWERHOUSE providing clean consistent power, they are producing considerably less heat. The motors will have an extended life span due to the reduction of heat and strain.
INLINE/OFFLINE TEST : This test was run on a Bekum injection molding machine. This press was run constantly for 10 hours. The KWHS usage was tested using an EMON meter. During the 5 hours that THE POWERHOUSE was on the machine, it averaged 4 KWHs. When THE POWERHOUSE was removed, the machine averaged 6 KWHs revealing a 33% savings in KWHs.
REDUCTION OF BAD PARTS : On the Bekum machine another positive outcome of THE POWERHOUSE installation was the reduction in bad parts or culls. Before adding THE POWERHOUSE the machine was averaging 14% to 16% bad parts, after installing the Powerhouse the machine is only averaging 2% unusable parts. This is due to the increased efficiency of the machine with conditioned power.
The following test were conducted by General Electric (GE)
During the GE conducted study at VI-JON Laboratories, with THE POWERHOUSE Unit on for a period of 1 hour with twelve readings taken in 5 minute increments during that period; a significant increase in Power Factor percentage is noticed.
During the same GE conducted study at VI-JON Laboratories, Reactive Energy (VARc) reduced 57% with THE POWERHOUSE Unit on during a one hour period test in twelve; 5 minute increments.
With THE POWERHOUSE Unit turned on during the one hour test at Vi-Jon laboratories, the power factor increased significantly vs. THE POWERHOUSE Unit off.
With THE POWERHOUSE Unit turned on for a period of one hour the Reactive Energy (VARc) decreased significantly compared to one hour after it was turned off.
