What is your Torque worth?

How many times has a salesman told you they can replace your existing low efficiency drive train with a more efficient drop in replacement, while achieving a surprisingly short payback through energy savings? Did you believe them? If you tried the new solution, were you able to validate your cost savings?  

In this webcast, we will explain what is behind this sales tactic, and why you may not realize the savings that were promised. Using plant equipment lists from actual facilities, we will walk through the real operating costs of different types of gearing. You may be surprised to find out how long it will take for the energy savings payback on a more expensive gearbox that claims higher efficiency.

We will cover:

  • Cost comparisons of “variable efficient vs constant efficient” gearing
  • Motor efficiencies before and after Integral HP rule
  • Most common motor sizes and ratios in material handling applications
