Lead Plant Fume Extraction 

Lead plant fume extraction controller

The original installation consisted of four 3.3kV motors two of 650kW and two of 410kW which were limited to no more than 4 starts per hour without risking damage to the windings.  This meant the fume extraction fans running on for an additional 15 minutes even though demand had dropped just in case they were needed again due to the limitations on starting.

DnA won the £650k contract to replace the motors and control system with the primary objectives of saving energy, improving plant efficiency and reducing downtime.  The replacement system consisted of 4 low voltage motors and installing low harmonic variable speed drives and saved over £200k in energy costs in its first year of operation.
