From River to Consumer to Treatment and Back: How to Boost Performance with Variable–Frequency Drives

Overview:

Find out about the many water/wastewater applications best fit for VFDs and the benefits delivered.

See a direct comparison of three sample VFDs and how/if they achieve IEEE519 harmonic reduction standards.

Discover how VFDs can reduce maintenance and downtime.

Many engineers believe the only benefit to using variable–frequency drives (VFDs) in water/wastewater applications is potential energy savings. While this single benefit can often quickly pay for the drive and installation, there are many more benefits available in a host of applications found throughout Water/Wastewater facilities.
