The ecoOne technology is designed to reduce your operating expenditures and your ecological footprint. The most striking feature is the ecoOne motor design which guarantees maximum electrical efficiency and can reduce power consumption up to 20%.
ecoOne Motor Design
Traditional pusher centrifuges have a separate pusher and drive motor, whereas Centrifuges with ecoOne Motor only have a common motor. Since the full load of the drive motor is only required during the start-up process, it only operates at partial load during regular operation. At partial load electric motors operate at much lower efficiency and additionally a big portion the power which is drawn from the grid which is converted to blind power (phase shift). Both together sums up to reduction potential of 20% for both consumed and installed power.
Design benefits of the ecoOne Pusher Centrifuge
Besides the ecoOne Motor design the Krauss-Maffei pusher centrifuge ecoOne is equipped with several innovative features. The centrifuge baskets are designed in a way that the machine can easily be transformed onsite from a two stage machine to a three stage/or PreFiltration machine without the need to replace the complete baskets. This an economic way of adjusting the machine to varying process conditions during its lifetime.
