eDrive™ Automatic VFD

How Much Energy is Your Dust Collection System Using?

With the RoboVent eDrive™, your collector's airflow is monitored and the motor's RPM is automatically adjusted to compensate for filter loading. As you can see in the graph below, a collector running without eDrive uses more energy in the beginning of the filter's life cycle than a collector with eDrive does.

Benefits of the RoboVent eDrive include:

  • Less stress on filter media, which leads to longer filter life
  • Decrease in energy usage by 20% to 40%
  • Improved equipment performance
  • Decreased filter costs
  • Decreased maintenance costs

Using the RoboVent eDrive with your dust collector will compress and straighten energy peaks and valleys, cutting energy usage by approximately 40% and increasing filter life by as much as 30%.

The RoboVent eDrive Saves You Money by Decreasing Energy Use and Extending Filter Life

In the example below, this 10 HP unit would be using 7.457 KWs per hour of operation. This example shows that you would save 41% over the 18-month period. For filters in this example you have increased the filter life by 4 months, or 29% Filter Life Savings.
