It’s a simplification bordering on misconception that variable frequency drives (VFDs) are the right solution and will automatically optimize energy performance. In reality, there are good, bad, and marginal applications for speed control. Cascade can you help you sort the winners from the losers, make sure you allocate your scarce capital budget to the best applications, and ensure that VFD applications reach their full potential.
Similarly, a discriminating eye can and should be applied to the energy benefits of industrial controls. Some control solutions (the good ones) dramatically cut energy use relative to the old way. Cascade can help you find these nuggets and avoid the false promise of control solutions that do it the old way–just on a fancier control platform.
Cascade has vast experience with industrial system controls and VFDs. We have managed installation of well over 3,000 VFDs. Large or small, old or new equipment, Cascade can help evaluate and optimize VFD and control solutions, or fine-tune the VFDs and controls already in your facility. This may be a simple set-point adjustment, suggesting an improved control algorithm, or an in-depth model to fully evaluate a complex application. You can count on Cascade to optimize the installation, setup, and control to deliver the greatest energy and cost savings.
