SinuMEC – Case Studies

Efficient Escalator Use at the Galeria Kaufhof Mega Stores

Galeria Kaufhof is one of the leading department store chains in Germany, with 21,500 employees, operating 105 department stores and 17 sports shops, with more than 2 million customers visiting daily. Electricity is one of the significant operating expenses. SinuMEC was tested and elected in order to reduce energy consumption in the stores. It provides ongoing saving in electricity in the range of 15 -23% on escalators across the chain.

Reduced Motor Voltage to Mud Pump Motor Load

This case study explores the installation of SinuMEC in a mud pump owned by a water authority.
The business requirement: Stable motor starting and a reduction of energy costs.
SinuMEC is designed to reduce motor voltage according to motor load, improve motor efficiency and extend motor lifetime.

Energy & Motor Control in Homogenizer at a Food Plant

This case study explores the installation of the starting and energy saving apparatus in a homogenizer at a food industry plant.
Benefits include: Reduced voltage motor starting, energy savings, and improved power quality.

Improved Motor Startup in a Granulator at a Carton Factory

This case study explores the installation of the sinusoidal multifunctional motor efficiency controller (SinuMEC) in a granulator at a packaging factory. Benefits include improved motor startup, reduced maintenance costs, reduction of electrical consumption, filtration of harmonics and improvement of power factor.

Reduced Operational Costs at Plastic Factory

This case study explores the installation of energy saving apparatus (SinuMEC) in a granulator at a co-extruded and thermoformed thermoplastic factory. Benefits include reduction of operational costs by € 1,263 ($1,894) to € 2,849 ($4,273) per year, return on investment of 8 to 18 months and limiting startup current to 1.2 times the nominal. Following the success of this installation, SinuMEC became the standard for energy savings devices in the factory.

Optimized Motor Performance in Quarry Conveyor Belts

This case study presents measurements and explains the results of a field test conducted with the advanced Motor Energy Controller (SinuMEC) developed by PowerSines. SinuMEC 20HP/15KW model was installed at the Vered Quarry in Israel to control an inductive electric motor of 20HP (15 KW/30A) which operates a conveyer.

Reduced PFC Losses in Cement Factory Bucket Elevator

This case study explores the installation of energy saving apparatus in a bucket elevator at one of the world’s largest cement companies’ plants. Benefits include reduction of operational costs by €1,242 to €1,797 per year and a return on investment of 15 to 24 months.

Quick Return on Investment in Bus Station Escalator Motor

This case study explores the installation of energy saving apparatus in escalators at the Tel Aviv central bus station. Benefits include reduction of operational costs by 23% – 26% and a return on investment of around two years.
