E-commerce has recently experienced an enormous rise in acceptance and success. At the same time, consumers increasingly value sustainability and avoiding the use of unnecessary packaging material.

 

 

 

De-energizing equipment, following adequate lockout/tagout procedures, and verifying the absence of voltage are key components to establishing an effective foundation for an electrical safety program.

 

 

 

In the world of motors, efficiency is king. It is apparent that consumers are looking for not only efficiency in cost to operate but also in ability to get the task done quickly. When converting electricity into rotational motion via motors, a major contributing factor to efficiency is the type of motor, such as a DC motor, used to keep the momentum going.

ABB CavitationCavitation can be a serious issue for industry. It causes damage to pumping systems, reducing their lifetime and requiring costly maintenance and replacement, while in the beverage and dairy industry it can impact the quality of products being pumped. This article outlines the causes of cavitation and explains how the latest variable speed drives (VSDs) offer an efficient and cost-effective method to prevent it.

Cavitation can occur in many different pumping applications, but it is a particular challenge for the water and wastewater industry where a high number of large pumps are deployed. The result is an increased risk of downtime and higher maintenance costs.
