Nampak -not so- Rigids!

Variable Speed Drives vary the speed of a normally fixed speed motor and in this way energy can be saved when production is low. Nampak Rigids was interested in installing a VSD on one of their high pressure compressors to realize some energy savings during their off-peak season.

Grey Green managed the project and facilitated the energy measurements before and after the VSD was installed to monitor the energy savings that were obtained. The actual Siemens VSD was installed by ART Mechatronics Lab and overseen by our team.
