Energy Conservation Systems

Maximizing Energy Efficiency for Dust Collection and Air Filtration Systems. Effective Controls East is proud to offer the most advanced industrial ventilation energy control systems available, Ivec™ Systems. An energy management system designed to reduce operating expenses for industrial ventilation equipment, Ivec™ may be installed on dust collectors, mist collectors, air cleaners, and exhaust systems. It is recommended for all ventilation equipment, new or existing. Ivec™ Systems provide ventilation-on-demand to minimize energy waste. Other benefits include reduced noise, longer filter life, added collection capacity, and extended intervals between maintenance cycles. The result is enhanced ventilation performance and electrical consumption reduced by as much as 70%.

Industrial Ventilation Energy Control (Ivec™) Systems

Energy Management for Peak Efficiency. The heart of the Ivec™ System is the Variable Frequency Drive which adjusts the blower speed as needed. The conventional collector sizes the fan to guarantee performance in the "worst case" scenario, such as when experiencing duct pressure losses, clogged filters, and all ports full open. But with the Ivec™ System, the fan speed can be controlled to use only the exact energy needed to do the job, including in the "best case" when the filters are clean and when only a portion of the work stations and duct system is in use. The Ivec™ System typically requires smaller duct runs and includes dampers that automatically close and open on demand at each work station.

The comprehensive approach of an air filtration system with energy management control sets it apart from those who merely provide the component parts without the critical system integration. The professionals from Effective Controls East combine the use of a Programmed Logic Controller with powered dampers and duct pressure transducers to manage the systems so they respond to the changing process without much input from operators. In this way the focus of the worker can remain dedicated to the manufacturing process while the air cleaning equipment is functioning responsively at peak efficiency. Equipped with the Ivec™ System from Effective Controls East, industries can realize great value and long-term energy savings and at the same time do their part to make energy conservation a priority.
