Amax has developed a state of the art power monitoring system that can be customized to suit your requirements. The system constantly monitor and graph power consumption. With the data available we are able to make the necessary changes to power factors, processes, operating hours, etc to ensure a substantial cost saving.
The following outlines the process AMAX follows for electricity optimisation:
Install Monitoring equipment
Setup SureTec software to monitor and report key indicators
Maintain Electricity Efficiency on a per station basis
Periodic reporting to monitor the health of each station
Parameter alarms for each station to indicate possible problems or failures
Monitoring of production downtime per station and corrective action
Incorporating energy costs into BOM for each product
Optimize Electricity Efficiency on a per station basis
Power Factor analysis and corrective action
Harmonic distortion analysis and corrective action
Voltage and current balancing analysis and corrective action
Maximum Demand analysis and corrective action
Station efficiency analysis and corrective action regarding hydraulic design, electric motor usage, software programming etc.
Station energy usage comparison to similar stations within the group to identify possible inefficiencies
