In recent weeks, Elgeti Engineering have been updating their oldest test rigs, built from 2010 onwards, to the latest technological level.
These upgrades will improve their measuring capabilities, increase software control and reduce electrical needs.
This increased efficiency is due to the optimised pipe routing and the introduction of variable speed auxiliary drives for the pumps and coolers, which allows only the actually required power to be consumed.
Depending on operating conditions, a dual-station test rig can save up to 1,5 kW – which corresponds to 1000 kWh per month during continuous use.
To conclude, this is one more contribution that Elgeti Engineering are making towards reducing emissions and their effect on the environment.
