Inverter Drives

Swimming pool halls are expensive to run, consuming large amounts of electricity. The high energy consumption is due to the large volume of water in the pool that continually needs to be circulated, heated, treated, filtered, topped up and replaced. 
A 25 m pool can hold as much as a million litres of water. Additionally, the costs for space heating and ventilation are high. In a large hotel, the swimming pool can account for up to 10% of total energy costs.
Swimming pool running costs can be significantly reduced by as much as 50 percent with variable speed drives. These devices control the flow of swimming pool pumps to eliminate the energy waste that is common with conventional pump and fan control methods.
A small reduction in speed can make a big difference in energy consumption. A pump or fan running at half speed consumes only one quarter as much energy as a unit running at full speed. This is because the power required to run a pump or fan changes with the cube of the speed. 
Because many pump and fan systems run at less than full capacity for much of the time, variable speed drives can produce huge savings. If a 100 kW pump is throttled by 50%, for example, the investment in a variable speed drive will have a payback of only six months of continuous operation. 
This will give, Significantly reduction in energy bills, a Rapid return on investment, Lower maintenance costs, and Substantial contribution to the environment by lower CO2 emissions and access to Carbon Trust loans 
The VSD’s (Variable Speed drives) are easy to retrofit to any motor / pump installation by our qualified engineers.
At night, the power to each pump can be reduced typically by some 50% which will only reduce the flow rate by some 20%, giving a flow rate and turn over of some 80% through the night-time period when the pool is not in use.

By cycling the pump between these day and night settings, energy consumption can be cut by nearly half, compared to running the pump continuously at full speed. Note that these figures are guidelines only. The actual settings Reduce pump speed when demand is low must be adjusted for each installation.
