How Energy Efficient Are Electric Motors?

In today’s eco conscious world, investing in industrial equipment that not only improves productivity and cost efficiency, but performs on the energy saving front is high on every tradesperson’s list of priorities. As suppliers of electric motors throughout the North West of England, we understand that improving energy efficient is the key to unlocking major savings and complying with the latest standards and requirements.

According to statistics gathered by one of our suppliers, Brook Crompton, electric motors use 45% of all electricity generated but how are the high efficiency models that we stock doing things differently?

Better materials

The inner workings of the average electric motor can be difficult for the average tradesperson to comprehend but every great product within our high efficiency range starts with a selection of high quality materials. The Brook Crompton motors that we stock and supply utilise higher specification materials in larger quantities. More materials are used to create each model’s copper windings, low loss lamination and increased core length to provide better competence all round.

Optimised design

The design of our high efficiency models also differs from that used to create standard electric motors. The fan is an area where a great deal of energy can be saved, and by optimising its design, products are not only meeting but exceeding the IE3 and IE4 standards for efficiency.

Enhanced configuration

The winding features of our Brook Crompton motors have also made better use of the more energy efficient technology available. The winding slot fill has been appropriately optimised to assess and limit energy loss, whilst the wider component calls upon an improved winding configuration to increase energy savings ten-fold.
