Alfa Laval Power Plates...

Reduce the power consumption of your decanters...

An easy way to save Every time energy costs rise, so does the cost of operating your decanters. There is not much you can do about the rising cost of energy. But now, you can reduce the power consumption of your decanters with Power Plates. Power Plates save money by reducing the power required to drive your Alfa Laval decanters. And since they use less energy, they also help save the environment. Best of all, Power Plates do all this without sacrificing performance. Benefits The benefits of installing Power Plates include Reduced energy consumption Reduced environmental impact Quick payback time Working principle The basic function of Power Plates is to reclaim some of the energy from the liquid as it leaves the bowl. When the liquid leaves the decanter, it is fully accelerated. Its rotation velocity moves in the direction of the bowl rotation. The Power Plate captures some of this discharge velocity and transfers it in the opposite direction of the bowl rotation. Power Plate Launch Case Herning RA...

Power Plates can be installed quickly and easily....

Therefore, the total effluent velocity is reduced. The energy content in the liquid that leaves the decanter is proportionate to the square of the velocity, so there is a considerable savings even in even a small velocity reduction. Installation Power Plates are easy to install. Installation can be done as part of your next scheduled service or any time you want. Plate dams Because the plate dam radius affects the decanter's performance, we recommend in addition to the plate recommended for the tool that you also order one size smaller and one size larger for optimization purposes. Savings By making the most of the energy you use, Power Plates generate significant savings. Your decanter's energy consumption will decrease 10% to 25%. The larger the decanter, the greater the savings. This may mean a payback time of 12 to 18 months sometimes even less....
