2013 Fluid Power Systems Conference November 19-21, 2013 • Doubletree Hotel, Rosemont, IL Hosted by the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS), the FPDA Motion and Control Network (FPDA), and the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)

Reliable and Efficient Hydraulics and Pneumatics for Today and Tomorrow Fluid power (hydraulics and pneumatics) is used in dozens of industries and hundreds of applications to precisely control the movement of machinery and material. Yet many engineers and technicians working in those industries do not fully understand the design concepts critical to developing efficient fluid power systems and the diagnostic and maintenance techniques essential to keeping those systems operating at peak efficiency. These concepts and techniques can result in significant energy and cost savings for companies that use hydraulics or pneumatics, as well as for the customers they serve, making fluid power a more competitive technology choice. To help companies take advantage of these opportunities, three leading fluid power organizations— the International Fluid Power Society, the FPDA Motion and Control Network, and the National Fluid Power Association—will be hosting an educational conference at the Doubletree Hotel in Rosemont, IL on November 19-21, 2013. Professionals responsible for designing and/or maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic systems in industrial settings or mobile applications should plan to attend.

The conference will offer: ● Design workshops to communicate why energy efficiency and reliability are increasingly a concern of machine builders and the role of fluid power in meeting those needs and balancing cost issues; ●

Hands-on instruction into practical maintenance techniques from fluid power component manufacturers, distributors, and system integrators;

Facilitated roundtable discussions, where peers can share specific challenges associated with their industry and applications, learn about fluid power standards, best practices in building efficient and reliable fluid power systems, and the future of fluid power;

Networking events, including the Innovation Showcase, to help participating engineers and technicians engage with technology providers from fluid power manufacturing and distribution companies to learn the newest, cutting edge developments in energy efficient and reliable developments in hydraulics and pneumatics.

Are Your Team-Building Exercises Creating a Team? by Kevin E. O’Connor, CSP

Team leaders have a perennial dilemma: how can we educate, engage, and develop our group in a substantial way that helps the team become better? Team building is often seen as the fun add-on to a meeting devoted to science, sales figures, and quarterly goals. These can include a ropes course, golf, trip to the desert, horseback riding, softball, cooking school, and the like. Were these experiences useful toward the goal? If the goal is fun, distraction, or an open afternoon, then these experiences create shared memories and are often a welcome opportunity. But the goal is rarely just to have a fun afternoon. Leaders want teams to trust better, to understand at a deeper level, and

certainly to communicate with one another in useful ways beyond one afternoon. Building a team requires three basic elements, and they are the same perpetual needs that all team leaders have: engagement, education, and development…all with a twist.

Engagement…with a twist Sometimes it’s simple—like a handshake—and other times it’s complex—like securing buy-in for a high-dollar project— but engagement always involves obtaining a “yes” from the other person. This agreement begins a cooperative relationship that seeks to align goals, minimize a judgmental

response, and keep the momentum going (even during the naturally tough times that are bound to come). The commitment of marriage, for example, is symbolized by an engagement ring. In business, commitment is demonstrated with a signed letter or contract. In both instances, engagement is an agreement that both parties will move forward and seek more specific agreements. When people are engaged (in both the marital and business context), there is an interior feeling of security that assures each person that they will work together. This agreement cannot be secured in one event. Just as hospitals have a heart monitor on every patient, team leaders must constantly monitor the signs of stress, unrest, and frustration. This involves listening to what members of the team say, what they don’t say, and maybe, what they can’t say. Here is the twist: listening closely to both the words and the feelings of your team members allows you, as the leader, and those who work for you, to feel your engagement. Paraphrasing and empathy are the perennial, highly reliable skills that will help you steer clear of becoming judgmental. When you are in tune with your team members’ unique “heartbeats” of engagement, you will know when somebody becomes an outlier. Only then can you use your other skills to bring them back aboard.

Education…with a twist Too many meetings are based on lectures. This repetitive structure might have worked for multiplication tables in primary school, but no longer. When teaching adults, presenters actually waste valuable educative time thinking that dumping data, spreadsheets, bullet points, and manuals onto people will somehow enlighten them.

The word “education” comes from the Latin word “educare,” which means “to lead out” or “draw forth from.” Socrates knew this when he asked questions in order to “draw forth from” his students. While this might make sense on paper, it is a more significant shift in how we can really envision meetings. We still, by and large, run our meetings with a speaker or presenter who often says, “Is it okay if I take questions later?” These people will then read their

T

eam-building activities don’t typically involve teaching the skills of extraordinary customer service, improv acting, fine dining, or food preparation. Yet one executive used all four to teach his team of pharmaceutical scientists how to reflect on personalities, roles, and goals. The field trips below also resulted in a well-formed team, seriously fun engagement, and a memorable experience beyond any ordinary team meeting: • A scavenger hunt focused on branding that included visits to Chicago’s Four Seasons hotel, Bloomingdales department store, and the Disney store. • At Second City, the famous improv school and theater, actors taught techniques to ensure that the team learned the value of saying “yes” on stage. • Advanced lessons in mealtime etiquette at fancy restaurants prepared the team to impress clients anywhere in the world. • A master chef showed the team how a first-class kitchen operated smoothly in the midst of chaos. Each activity was designed to build the team, increase interpersonal skills, and create a useful memory. Not one of these activities was done for its own sake, just for “fun,” or to simply fill the time. Unlike so many “team-building” events that can be downloaded from the Internet, each actually built the team even after the team-building event finished.

Power Point presentations aloud, droning on and on, while the audience pre-reads each slide and then waits for the presenter to finish. Instead of a 60-90 minute lecture, what if… • The presenter didn’t see this as “my time,” but saw “our time” as an opportunity for the team to talk with one another about the essence of the issues? • The team divided into groups of three, brainstormed three or four concerns for

the future, and then had the expert facilitator give a 10-12 minute reflection on each of the concerns? • The presenter simply had a Q&A session? • The expert asked the audience questions, guiding the team toward answering the question, “What do we need to do to prepare for the future we want to make?” Here is the twist: when we ignore that education is really about drawing forth from

our collective experience, we waste incredible resources already present in our teams. Witnessing this collective knowledge is a strong formative element for a team. This is often what scientists experience working on a project during a “think-tank” session or what a Broadway cast feels on opening night.

Development…with a twist This is the most important, yet most often ignored, element when building a team. In an effort to move forward quickly, many leaders start sharing the “takeaways” from the experience before the team has caught its breath. When team leaders say, “I hope that you realized this horseback riding taught us to better listen to one another just as we did with our horses,” they risk the team saying, “What? I thought we just learned there’s some beautiful scenery here!” Instead, team leaders should consider asking the following: • What did you notice when you tried to steer your horse too hard? • What did you learn about your colleagues’ lives during the ride? • For those who have never been horseback riding, what skills did you learn? • Aren’t those skills some of the same that we need in our office? Here is the twist: just as we rely on crockpots to slowly heat and mold a meal’s flavors together, we must allow the individuals to apply the lessons for themselves.

Team Building…with a twist It is okay to take the team golfing, horseback riding, or out for drinks, but don’t think that activity alone will build the team any more than a reception with fine wine and tasty cheese will foster interesting conversation at dinner. Reconsider how you educate, and how you think about education, because everyone will learn more when the collective team experience is drawn forth. Finally, understand that the act of looking back on what the team learned and experienced together is a vital part of becoming a team…and building one.

Guidance from the Experts

Supplying Stainless Cylinders to the Food Industry for Over 50 Years

By Ron Marshall Compressed Air Challenge

One of the most efficient and effective ways to work in the compressed air industry is to choose not to make your own mistakes while learning the hard way. The quickest way to achieve success is to emulate the best practices of past masters in the field. These experts often choose to leave a legacy to future tradespersons by writing guides and best practices for our benefit. We are fortunate that two experienced compressed air experts, William Scales and David McCulloch, with combined experience of more than 90 years in the business, have written a classic guidebook, “Best Practices for Compressed Air Systems,” for the Compressed Air Challenge (CAC).

Purpose of the Manual

• Improve system reliability • Increase productivity • Reduce unscheduled downtime The BPM suggests points to consider when analyzing existing systems or designing new ones. All parts of compressed air systems are discussed, including the air compressors, the auxiliary conditioning equipment, distribution system, and the end uses. The manual guides technical staff in determining how to use measurements to audit their own systems, how to calculate the cost of compressed air, and even how to interpret electric utility bills. Best-practice recommendations are given for the selection, installation, maintenance, and operation of all the equipment and components within the compressed air system.

Compressed air is a very useful and valuable utility, but expensive to produce, which means it should be managed carefully. The Best Practices Manual (BPM) was developed to provide compressed air users with the tools they need to reduce the operating costs associated with the use of compressed air and to improve the reliability of the entire system. The BPM addresses many typical improvement opportunities, starting from where the air enters the compressor inlet filter and going all the way through to the final end uses, including hoses, quick couplers, air tools, cylinders, or other devices. The measures recommended in the manual typically do the following: • Reduce energy and repair costs

Using the Manual

The Best Practices Manual is intended for anyone involved with any part of the complete compressed air system. The manual may be used as a reference for a specific problem or as a full text covering the complete system. References to other sources for further study are listed. Appendices provide useful tables, charts, graphs, and additional information that supplement the understanding and application of the main text.

Although individual components are addressed, the focus of the manual is always on the systems approach, realizing that the distribution system and the demand side of the system have a significant impact on the supplyside equipment operation of compressors, dryers, air receivers, and air-treatment equipment. There is not always a single answer to what is the best solution to common problems; in many cases, alternatives are provided. Similarly, the

selection of a particular type of compressor or dryer or distribution system in one plant may not be the best for a different plant; therefore, multiple solutions may be suggested. In many industrial plants, the air compressor(s) will consume more energy than any other equipment. With proper application of the system approach, savings of 50% or more have been achieved. The BPM teaches you how to evaluate your own system by following simple steps or by knowing what questions to ask a professional service provider if one is retained to perform a walkthrough or assessment of your system. Improving the system and maintaining peak performance is an ongoing process and will require your continuous attention. The CAC, through its Best Practices Manual, is dedicated to assisting you in achieving the peak operating performance of your compressed air system. It is up to you to maintain that level using the information within the manual, from attending CAC training, and from other available resources.

Summary of Main Points

Some selected important key points from the BPM: • Accurate measurements of system air consumption and electrical power (called creating a baseline) allow proper assessment and appreciation of the true cost of operation. This, in turn, can help in management and conservation of available resources. • The system should be delivering air at the lowest practical pressure. Operating at an elevated system pressure increases the air consumption of end uses, the rate of leaks, and overall energy consumption. • Only the number of compressors required to meet the demand at any given time should be in operation, and only one should be operated in a “trim” control mode (partial load). • It is common to find a leakage rate of 20% to 30% in the compressed air system of an industrial plant. An aggressive and continuous program of leak detection and elimination can reduce consumption substantially. • The cost of compressed air often is overlooked because of the convenience and ergonomic advantages it provides. Make sure that compressed air is the best alternative for any application. Not all applications are appropriate. • Applications that do not require compressed air 100% of the time should have the supply shut off when not needed. • Check the appropriateness and effectiveness of equipment used to control and deliver compressed air. Ensure proper storage receivers are used and that components are sized to limit pressure loss. The Best Practices Manual is available at the www. compressedairchallenge.org. The manual is also included in CAC’s Fundamentals of Compressed Air seminar and webinar. For more information see CAC’s website.

New Problem

By Ernie Parker AI, AJPP, AJPPCC, S, MT, MM, MIH, MIP, MMH, Fluid Power Instructor Hennepin Technical College EParker@Hennepintech.edu

If the rotary actuator has four 4" diameter cylinders as shown, what would be the necessary pressure to rotate the shaft with a torque of 5000 lb. in.? Assume 100% efficiency. Also calculate the CIR (displacement).

Previous Problem A company has a machine that uses 50 cfm at 100 psi. Size an air compressor in SCFM that will have a duty cycle of 40%. Then size an air receiver in gallons that would supply that SCFM for three (3) minutes with the pressure dropping from 100 psi to 80 psi.

Solution:

Step 1: Find C.R. (100 + 14.7) / 14.7 = 7.8 : 1 C.R.

We are looking for SCFM, so let’s use the first equation and substitute in our numbers.

Winner

Step 2: SCFM = 50 X 7.8 / 0.40 = 975 SCFM per machine. We multiply the CFM by the C.R. to get SCFM and then we divide by 0.4 to oversize the compressor so that it will only run 40% of the time, allowing for expansion of our system in the future.

Jeremy Palm CFPS Hennepin Technical College Eden Prairie, MN

Sizing of a Receiver Tank Again I have two equations, one for sizing the tank in cubic feet and one for sizing in gallons:

T(min.) = V(cu.ft.) X (P2-P1) 14.7 X SCFM T(min.)=V(gal.) X (P1-P2) 110 X SCFM We are looking for the receiver size in gallons, so let’s use the second equations. 3 X 110 X 975 / 20 = 16,087.5 gallon receiver per machine 3 is time in minutes, 110 is a constant, 975 is the SCFM, 20 is the pressure drop (P2-P1) The answers are 975 SCFM and 16,087.5 gallon receiver per machine.

answered correctly

I have two equations that I use for sizing an air compressor with a duty cycle: SCFM = CFM X C.R./Duty Cycle CFM = SCFM/C.R./Duty Cycle Note: (C.R.) is the compression ratio. These two equations cannot be transposed into the other equation.

The best way to predict your future is to create it! – Abraham Lincoln

Predict a Profitable Future with IFPS Certification By Gwyn O’Kane, PIRTEK USA

A

braham Lincoln’s simple, yet very powerful statement reinforces the fact that it is up to each of us – whether an employee or employer – to create opportunities that will influence a predictable path to our desired future. For some, the vision is to advance careers within a company; others are envisioning a successful business. Whatever the path is to our dream – owning a home, putting kids through college, traveling the world – we all have the ability to create that dream.

Catalyst for Success The International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) is a catalyst for success for those of us who have chosen a career or business in the fluid power industry. One of the great tools of the organization that works to enhance the quality of certifications, educational opportunities, and technology evolution within the fluid power and motion control industry is its fluid power certification program. At PIRTEK, IFPS certification has become integral in the way we conduct business. Owners of our mobile-based hose and fitting replacement franchises encourage and support their technicians in the certification process. By working to achieve certification

requirements, PIRTEK technicians become even better in their areas of expertise, minimizing equipment downtime by manufacturing replacement hydraulic hose assemblies at customer jobsites. IFPS certification validates our performance, giving PIRTEK a competitive edge in the industry. It instills pride among our technicians. It promotes on-the-job safety that is of utmost importance to our technicians, as well as to PIRTEK and our customers.

Long List of Benefits There are many more reasons to become IFPS certified. It enables you to do the following: • Choose Your Certification – IFPS offers nine certifications that cover just about every function within the fluid power industry. The Fluid Power Connector and Conductor certification is for individuals who work with hose and fittings on a regular basis or for fluid power designers who want a better understanding of hose assemblies and how they function in hydraulic systems. Certifications for mechanics, technicians, and specialists prove their mastery of fluid power systems. The IFPS also offers certifications for those who work strictly with pneumatics and for those who specialize in hydraulics. • Earn Recognition – IFPS certification is widely known among employers, customers, and fluid power industry workers across the nation. Since it requires a dedicated effort, certification speaks volumes about an individual’s ability to perform as an outstanding service/product supplier. • Enhance Your Technical Ability – Preparing for IFPS certifications requires studying industry standards and fluid power theory and applying that knowledge to real-world systems. In doing so, you are almost guaranteed to learn new skills that will make you better at what you do. • Increase Customer Confidence – Just as it is important to hire only licensed contractors to do work around our homes, IFPS certification gives customers confidence that they are hiring the most competent people to work on their equipment and projects. • Promote Your Qualifications – The IFPS encourages individuals to leverage their certifications and market their skills by touting certifications on business cards and email signatures, wearing the IFPS logo on their shirts, and publicizing certifications on trade counter posters. Sell your customers on the fact that you are IFPS certified! • Increase Your Safety – Fluid power accidents are often extremely severe and have the

potential to result in loss of limbs or even life. All IFPS certifications focus on improving safety awareness and eliminating accidents through proper safety procedures. • Invest in Yourself – Fees for IFPS examinations are very reasonable. Most of the cost for certification is incurred in the time it takes to prepare for the tests. Some companies cover exam costs for their employees, while others merit certified employees with a pay increase. These companies understand that investing in their employees will pay dividends in the form of priceless credibility and marketability, increasing their overall market shares. • Advance Your Career – Adding IFPS certification to your resume will verify the fact that you are a marketable fluid power professional and will well position you for the next career opportunity within your existing place of employment or with a new employer.

Local Chapter Networking As a native of New Zealand, I am very proud of my relatively new U.S. citizenship and the fact that I am a part of this great nation that offers endless opportunities to advance. I am fortunate to be involved with the very active IFPS Chapter 49 in Central Florida, in which I have had the opportunity to meet and work with numerous fluid power professionals, many of whom have become friends. In an effort to give back to the fluid power industry, our local chapter has provided fluid power training at local high schools, sponsored and donated over $18,000 to FIRST teams, and has recently begun to offer review courses and exams for various IFPS certifications. IFPS and its certifications have opened doors and created opportunities that are enabling me to predict a better future for myself and for those I network with within the industry. Just like motor mechanics are required to be ASE certified, my hope is that someday IFPS certification will become a requirement for everyone working in the fluid power industry. In the long run, advancing fluid power education will enable our industry to attract and maintain very talented people.

‰ economic report

Global Manufacturing Update By Chad Moutray, Chief Economist, National Association of Manufacturers

‰ August 9, 2013 – Net exports provided a significant drag on second-quarter real GDP in the United States, subtracting 0.81 percentage points from the total figure. While goods exports grew faster in the second quarter than in the first quarter, this was counterbalanced by even stronger growth in goods imports. As such, the data highlight how softer economic growth overseas has slowed U.S. manufacturing activity and exports. Year-to-date manufactured goods exports have grown a stubbornly slow 1.7% in the first six months of 2013 relative to the same time period in 2012. This compares to the 5.7% growth in manufactured goods exports for all of 2012 and the 15% growth rate required for the United States to meet its goal of doubling exports by 2015. This sluggish pace has made it difficult for manufacturers to increase the demand for their goods. The Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that the U.S. trade defi-

cit fell sharply from $44.1 billion in May to $34.2 billion in June. This was the lowest monthly deficit since October 2009, and there were increases in goods exports mostly across the board. The largest year-to-date gains were in consumer goods, non-automotive capital goods, and automotive vehicles and parts segments. More importantly, the new data give a sense that the export picture might be improving, providing further hope that manufacturing activity will be better in the second half of the year. The global economy will need to stabilize the pick up if the U.S. export market is to continue to improve in the coming months. Of the top 10 markets for U.S.-manufactured goods, five have Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) values in July suggesting growth, and the other five are experiencing contractions. The latest data show mixed progress in terms of manufacturing activity. In fact, the Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI ended 23 consecutive

months of declining activity with slight growth in July, sparking conversations about whether its economic challenges have stabilized or not. In contrast, output and new orders in many emerging markets have decelerated in recent months. Yet, data released on Chinese industrial production suggest that activity might be stabilizing, which could be a positive sign moving forward. Over the next few weeks, several indicators will give us a better sense of how the world economy is faring. This includes GDP reports for Europe, Japan, and Mexico; industrial production for the United States, Europe, India, and Mexico; and retail sales information for the United States, Brazil, Canada, and Mexico. In addition, regional Federal Reserve Bank surveys of manufacturers for August will hopefully show continued progress in terms of manufacturing activity in the United States, including progress with new export orders.

Meanwhile, this fall will be busy on the trade policy front. Congress recessed for August without moving major trade legislation, including bills to reauthorize customs and extend the Generalized System of Preferences program that expired on July 31. The coming months may see movement on these bills and a measure to grant the President the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) necessary to pass trade agreements now under negotiations, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The NAM launched a trade toolkit to coincide with renewed congressional attention to these issues. Over the next few months, we will also continue working to overturn unfair trade practices in India, combat trade secrets theft, advance national export control reform, and support a global trade facilitation agreement.

The IFPS recommends that, in every circumstance, factory, piece of mobile equipment, or application of any fluid power product or its controls, every employee and employer is responsible to know, understand, and practice the safety policies and procedures already in place. (See the September/October issue for more information on the IFPS safety initiatives and visit www.ifps.org for important safety resources.) Safety cards have been issued to all IFPS members as well as non-members who recertified in 2013. These cards contain information on obtaining five (5) critical pieces of information for doctors and emergency medical technicians in treating fluid injection injuries. If you would like to purchase safety cards and/ or posters you may do so by visiting www.ifps.org. Cards are sold in packs of 10, 50, and 100.

October 17, 2013 “Beat the Leak: Best Practice Approach to Becoming Connector and Conductor Certified” 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Presented by: Gwyn O’Kane, CFPAI/AJPPCC, Pirtek USA The IFPS Connector and Conductor (C&C) certification defines professional standards for those involved in the construction, installation, and maintenance of fluid power systems. Learn the best approach for becoming a CFPCC professional. Topics covered: • Overview of C&C certification • Introduction to the Study Manual • Recommendations on preparing for the tests • Value of becoming C&C certified November 7, 2013 “Task and Outcome - Pneumatic Specialist” 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Presented by: Bill Hotchkiss, CFPAI, SunSource December 4, 2013 “Slip-In Cartridge Valves” 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Presented by: Jim Lane, CFPAI, Motion Industries, Inc. Poppet-type, commonly called Slip-In or DIN, valves have been used in hydraulic systems for many years. They are commonly known as two-port check valves. In this form, they serve as a one-way valve, allowing free flow in one direction while blocking flow in the reverse direction. With some refinements, these valves can be controlled to overcome the normal blocking action, thereby allowing control of flow in both directions. This is the basis of the control concept known as “cartridge valves.” This web seminar will discuss the sizing and applications of directional, pressure, and flow control slip-in cartridge valves. It will also discuss the manifolds required when applying these components in a modern industrial or mobile hydraulic system.

Eaton’s Hydraulics Group Hosts Instructor Symposium ‰ Eaton held an Instructor Symposium from June 18-20, 2013, hosted by Eaton’s Hydraulics Training Center in Maumee, Ohio. The Hydraulics Group conducted this opportunity for instructors and educators who teach in the fluid power industry. The event was designed to expose industry professionals working with academic and commercial training operations to the latest in emerging hydraulic technologies and teaching methods. Through a variety of training techniques, including lectures and hands-on lab exercises, participants engaged in topics such as leaks, causes, cures, and hose routing; systemic contamination control; logical troubleshooting; vehicle drive calculations; aeration and cavitation; thread identification and tube bending; and the cardinal sins of hydraulics.
 “With over 150 years of combined experience in the fluid power industry, the educational value of the Eaton instructors is immeasurable,” Bill Hotchkiss, CFPHS, CFPPS, CFPAI, technical training manager, SunSource, explained after attending his second annual Eaton Hydraulics Instructor Symposium. “If there are fluid power instructors not attending this annual event, they are missing the boat.” Eaton also supplied all attendees with valuable training materials, including reference books, CDs and videos. “This symposium demonstrates Eaton’s leadership in training the next generation of hydraulics professionals,” said Tom Blansett, CFPS, CFPAI, CFPCC, manager, Training Services, Eaton’s Hydraulics Group. “Each year we add new topics and exercises based on changes in the industry. This year, the logical troubleshooting exercise allowed participants to apply what they learned during the instructional course to a hands-on practical session.” “I think that every instructor accredited by the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) needs to take advantage of the benefits this symposium has to offer to be able to understand all aspects of the ever-changing fluid power industry,” said Jimmy Simpson, fluid power instructor, Northwest State Community College and chairman of the Fluid Power Educational Foundation. He continued, stressing the importance of the symposium, “It can only make instructors better, which will help promote future growth.”

Eaton’s Hydraulics Group is recognized for its longstanding history in fluid power education, starting when the original Vickers’ Training Center was founded in 1945. Eaton acquired Vickers in 1999.

Electric Motors

Electric motor-driven systems are estimated to consume more than one half of all electricity in the U.S. and more than 70% of all electricity in manufacturing applications. If you are looking to improve the energy efficiency of your operation, the first place you should evaluate is the motors. The initial purchase price of a motor represents only 2% of its total lifetime cost, while power usage represents almost all of the remaining 98%. It has been estimated that an energy management program that upgrades electric motors to more energy-efficient models can result in approximately 13% energy savings. Motors that meet specifications established by the NEMA Premium速 program are available from most manufacturers and will optimize efficiency, reduce power consumption, and improve system reliability. A relatively small upfront investment will pay back quickly and also pay dividends in energy savings for years to come. The savings are so significant that it can be worthwhile to replace fully serviceable, standard-efficiency motors. Additionally, NEMA Premium motors are made to higher manufacturing standards, which typically result in longer life, less maintenance, and reduced downtime.

It’s also important to know if a particular motor is the proper size for its application. A motor that is too large for the job wastes energy and costs extra money to operate. To help in this analysis, suppliers of AC and DC motors publish straightforward sizing procedures to ensure that a motor is properly sized for optimum energy efficiency. A well-planned energy management program, coupled with proper motor maintenance, can reduce operating expenses and increase profits. Proper motor maintenance will enhance efficiencies and prolong a motor’s life. Items to check during inspection: • Old or inadequate lubrication • Vibration • Improper ventilation causing overheating • The presence of dirt or other contaminants • Motor and load misalignment • Wide variation in load conditions • Worn belts, sheaves, and couplings • Loose hold-down bolts

Gear Reducer Options

Substantial energy and operating cost savings are gained by combining premium efficient motors with highly efficient gearing. Your choice of gearing can have a significant impact on energy usage. Gearing is a common method of speed reduction and torque multiplication; however, during this process the gearing consumes a certain percentage of power. Obviously, as power losses are reduced or minimized, efficiency improves. Worm gearing, for example, is widely used in industry. Worm gears are generally compact and economical, but not your best choice for energy efficiency. There is a lot of friction caused by the worm gear design and at high ratios this can cause the reducer to be only (approximately) 50% energy efficient. Helical gear reducers are commonly found, as well. But when concerned with optimizing efficiencies, helical gearing is a better choice than worm gearing, offering a significantly higher efficiency at 98% per reduction. Helical gears are popular because they are durable and quieter, even at higher speeds.

Belt Selection and Maintenance

Properly designed belt transmission systems are highly efficient and quiet. However, they require periodic maintenance to ensure efficient operation. In addition, certain types of belts are more efficient than others. V-belts are used in the majority of belt drives. These belts have a trapezoidal cross section that wedges into pulleys to increase friction and power transfer capability. In operation, v-belt efficiency can deteriorate by as much as 5% over time if the belt is not periodically re-tensioned, as undertensioned belts lead to slippage and reduced power transfer efficiency. Cogged belts have slots that run perpendicular to the belt length. These slots reduce belt-bending resistance and allow the belts to be used with v-belt pulleys. Cogged belts run cooler, last longer, and are about 2% more efficient than standard v-belts. Therefore, cogged belts should be considered as replacements for v-belts wherever possible. Synchronous belts have teeth and require the installation of mating toothed drive sprockets. These belts are about 98% efficient and maintain that efficiency over a wide load range. Synchronous belts require

less maintenance and retensioning, operate in wet and oily environments, and run slip-free. However, while synchronous belts are extremely efficient, cogged belts may be a better choice when vibration damping is needed or shock loads cause abrupt torque changes that could shear a synchronous belt’s teeth. Synchronous belts also make a whirring noise that might be objectionable in some applications. Additionally, proper belt alignment and tensioning are critical to ensure efficient operation. Improper tensioning leads to inefficient power transmission, belt failure, and associated costs. If a belt is not running at optimum tension, it is wasting energy and money. Manufacturers offer a variety of tools that help ensure the proper installation of belt drives, including alignment tools and tension guides. Another maintenance concern and efficiency loss is sheave wear. Misalignment and improper belt tensioning can cause excessive wear on sheaves. When sheaves wear, a formerly flat groove sidewall takes on a concave shape, and the surface that interacts with the belt is compromised. Eroded sheave sidewalls can cause up to 12% loss in v-belt drive efficiency; rough, worn sidewalls can reduce belt life by up to 50%. Belt manufacturers offer sheave gauges to help assess the condition of the sheave wall and make good decisions regarding replacement.

Variable-Frequency Drives

Variable-frequency drives (VFDs) have long been known to save energy, specifically in pump and fan applications. In fact, studies have shown the payback period is often less than one year. In most facilities, pumps and fans run at constant speeds, and flow rates are adjusted by automatic valves or other mechanical means. This can be highly inefficient because motors running at constant speed always consume the maximum amount of energy, even during periods when lower speed operation would suffice. VFDs provide more efficient operation by regulating motor speed– and therefore flow rate–electronically in response to changing operating conditions. In addition, VFDs can be used to improve process control. If a plant uses constant-speed motors to run conveyors on the line, it either must run without material during the time required to change temperature in a heat zone or produce scrap during this period. When using a VFD, the time needed to change speed is significantly less than the time it takes to change heat-zone temperature. By adjusting the material flow continuously to match heat zone conditions, a plant can operate continuously. The results are decreased energy usage and less scrap.
