Lower equipment cost
The Torque Starter provides a much better value, with benefits other starter systems cannot provide.
Increased capacities from existing circuits
The Torque Starter avoids the high cost of installing new circuit installations or increases in capacity to existing circuits. Installing the Torque Starter on electric motors on an existing circuit frees up additional current capacity to be utilized for additional equipment on the same circuit.
Eliminates over sizing of switching and power supply circuits
If you are performing a new motor installation or upgrading to a larger motor where substation or circuits have to be upgraded, then the Torque Starter can significantly reduce costs by eliminating the upgrades.
Significantly reduces installation cost
The Torque Starter can reduce the cost of electric circuits to motors. Electric motors typically require up to 6 to 8 times the normal full load operating current during starting. Eliminating this starting current when sizing and purchasing wires, transformers, substation equipment, switches and other required power circuit components provides immediate cost savings.
The Torque Starter is less expensive and easier to install and maintain than conventional motor starters.
Unlock the hidden revenue inside your business
If you have an extreme interest in reducing the bottom line profitability of your company then we have some tools you can use. The Torque Starter completely eliminates the instantaneous or lock rotor current demands normally associated with starting an electric motor. Directly providing several valuable benefits over conventional motor starters. Depending on what stage of development or construction the electric motor installation project is at the total amount of savings that could be realized come from several sources.
Can reduce utility installation cost
If you are having to bring new in service or upgrading service to a site for installation of a new motor, then the our technology provides significant savings to utility cost of service to a site due to reduced current demands.
Can reduce the cost of electricity
Depending on the structure of your utility rate, the Torque Starter provides positive benefits that may be utilized to negotiate reduced utility rates. Use of the Torque Starter can lead to cheaper electric rates through the reduction of certain demand charges.
Reduced wear and tear on motor windings
Using the Torque Starter increases reliability for your Electric Motors and Motor Controls. Check with your motor manufacturer and ask about what potential cost savings could be realized if you were able to completely eliminate the negative effects of the instantaneous or lock rotor current draw on your motor. When utilizing our technology during starting, the motor never sees a current that exceeds the full load operating current of the motor. Complete elimination of the lock rotor current draw can provide significant savings over the years as your electric motor windings are never compromised by the increased heat which can eventually lead to premature failure of the windings. This significantly increases the service life of the motor and reduces associated operations and maintenance cost.
Do you have a demand component in your utility bill? This is where the reduction negotiations in electricity rates start showing up. If you can provide us with a copy of your current utility bills for 12 months, or a copy of your utility agreement, or provide us with the anticipated cost per kw/hr to be charged at the site of a new installation, we will review the information and help to negotiate with the local utility.
Renegotiating Your Utilities
Since electric motors account for literally over 50% of the power usage worldwide including the US, the Torque Starter for the first time since the invention of the electric motor truly provides the strongest economic solution to address one of the largest causes of wasted energy, electric motor startup.
Effectively, Torque Starter is the first step in the process of creating a more efficient grid by freeing up existing energy supplies which are held in reserve simply for starting electric motors. It also can lead the way in developing more renewable energy projects by reducing peaking loads along the grid and maximizing the use of renewable energy sources. Energy efficiency starts by increasing the ability to predict power usage and effectively allocate resources necessary to meet demand. The startup of an electric motor can require from 6 to 10 times the motors full load operating current for a short period of time until the motor reaches is full operating RPM, which requires the utility to have huge amounts of reserved electric capacity available for the customer to achieve normal start up.
By eliminating a motors excessive power requirement at startup the TorqueStarter:
Reduces the total amount of purchase of required peaking reserve power
Reduces the total amount of purchase of costly spinning reserve power
Reduces lines losses by eliminating Voltage dips due to instantaneous energy consumption
Reduces Utility Capital Cost for infrastructure
Increases Power Quality by the stabilization of Circuit Frequency, Voltage and Current
This would lead billions of dollars of savings by providing the predictability, efficiency and cost savings for utilities and their customers. Utilities would also experience substantial reduction in operating cost due to excessive capital expenditures on the infrastructure equipment required to feed this reserve power to start electric motors.
Whether you make or use large motors, pumps, compressors or fans our patented technology can save millions or unlock new sources of revenue locked inside this problem for years.
We are on a mission to share the benefits of this new technology with businesses who want to save money and use energy more efficiently.
