Sunace smashes energy efficiency target
Aug 17, 2015
SunAce is a leading polymer additive manufacturer in Australia, producing an extensive range of PVC stabilisers and metallic stearates. The Sunace plant in Brooklyn, western Melbourne, is a complex and highly controlled production line. Dedicated to efficiency at the plant, Sunace have had a series of energy audits performed from 2009 onwards. In 2013 Sunace decided to implement the following energy efficiency improvements:
- Upgrade a 10 year old fixed speed 95kW air compressor with a new variable speed drive 95kW air compressor.
- Install a voltage optimisation system to bring the site-wide voltage closer to 220V to achieve efficiency gains on all motors on site.
