As we reported here, ecoSAVE was commercially introduced last year, and now the manufacturer can report on some of the savings realized in the field. Among the measures included in the ecoSAVE package is the use of energy-saving components such as high-performance motors, with the end result of the measures a reduction in energy consumption of up to 10%.
The company, based in Ansfelden, Austria, near Linz, says it plans to add new features to the energy saving package this year. To reduce losses through heat radiating to the outside and to optimize thermal output even further, melt filters on new recycling systems will now feature added insulation. These extras are included in all new Erema plastic recycling systems as added value at no additional charge.
An option with the new package is a process control system that gives the operator information on current energy requirements, so that he can take active energy-optimization steps.
