In most facilities, pumps and fans run at fixed speeds. An automatic valve or some other mechanical means varies fluid flow rates. By using a variable frequency drive, motor speeds can be varied and regulated electronically. Adjusting pump or fan speed to a desired flow rate can result in significant energy savings - payback periods are often less than one year.

A boat motor manufacturer contacted Applied about energy consumed on a die cast machine. After the installation of two variable frequency drives, energy savings were calculated at $12,000.
