Improve Pump & Compressor Systems
There’s a lot that goes in to powering pump and compressor systems. To handle it all, you need an effective and responsive motor to drive the compressor or pump and mechanically move the fluids, liquids, gases or slurries.

There are many solutions that can support the motors powering pumps and compressors. These solutions help identify or mitigate potential operational issues, and allow your pump and compressor system to work effectively in your commercial or industrial environment.

Our product portfolio offers the solutions you need to get the most from your pump and compressor system, along with added benefits like inventory reduction, cost savings and increased reliability.

Soft Starter - OEM     

Soft Starters

 

Temporarily reduce the load and torque in the system’s power train, as well as the current surge of the motor during startup.

•  High Efficiency: About 99% efficient at full operating speed and load.

•  Low Heat Generation: No solid-state components are active when an integral bypass is used; therefore, no additional heat is generated.

Improved Communications: Modbus, Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet.


 

HOW THEY HELP

 

Provide insight into the status of the pump and compressor system via modern, advanced communication protocols for operational efficiencies and proactive maintenance.

Variable Frequency Drives

 

Variable frequency drives, or VFDs, are best used in applications where the speed of the fan or pump needs to be varied to deliver optimal air quality.

•  Heat Generation: Components of VFDs are “always on” and constantly controlling frequency, making them inherently hotter than soft starters.

•  Improved Communications: Modbus, Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet.


 

HOW THEY HELP

 

Drive an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to the electric motor. They offer advanced communications protocols.

Molded Case Circuit Breakers     

Molded Case Circuit Breakers

 

GuardEon* by GE is the new low voltage molded case circuit breaker platform designed to work in tough, real-world applications, and is a smart, reliable and secure circuit breaker solution. Depending on the size of the motor, molded case circuit breakers can provide overcurrent protection. GuardEon circuit breakers have global ratings for both IEC and NEMA markets.

•  Inventory Reduction: Field interchangeable, upgradeable trip unit technology enables flexibility in stocking, installation and servicing. Plug & play functionality helps to configure advanced features on site.

•  Labor Cost Savings: Incorporates many electrical components found external to the breaker, such as a CT for metering. Fewer components mean less time and labor costs to build the control panel.

•  Protection of People and Equipment: Enabled with ArcWatch* selective coordination and arc flash mitigation technology.

•  Fewer Unplanned Outages: Equipped with the new PremEon* G Trip Unit with digital display to help with predictive maintenance.

•  Trip Unit Toolkit: Manage your trip unit with a powerful and intuitive interface that provides simple, easy access to control functionality from startup and commissioning to maintenance and testing, directly on your personal computer.


 

HOW THEY HELP

 

If an overcurrent event causes a short circuit and thermal overload of the motor, molded case circuit breakers like GuardEon can help protect the motor, controls and wiring. In the event of an overspeed condition on the motor caused by an un-primed pump that is not pumping fluid, a circuit breaker can sense this condition and alert the operator that something isn’t working properly.

Contactors

 

Contactors, like GE’s Efficor*, make it possible to operate your pump and compressor system in myriad commercial and industrial environments and conditions. Because control and electrical rooms are often located where space can be limited and components hard to reach, contactors and other modular components allow for tool-free installation and in-the-field upgrades. They’re also designed to function in harsh and high-temperature environments.

•  Built for Industrial Applications: Contactors like Efficor can withstand temperatures from -40 to 70 C, and their compact design helps protect against pollution and dust. Efficor has achieved global approvals including CE, CCC and UL, and certifications for marine and transportation applications.

•  Inventory Reduction: Just one Efficor contactor SKU is all that’s needed for your global product lines, simplifying machine design, reducing stock costs and streamlining BOM management.

•  Smart Wiring for a Secure Connection: Efficor is designed with double box terminals to provide secure and intelligent wiring options, which ensure a secure connection preventing overheating.

•  Energy Efficient Design: Efficor units up to 40A utilize a combination or permanent magnet and electromagnet technology to help ensure low energy consumption and high reliability. Above 50A, it incorporates an AC/DC super wide coil design that provides improved reliability and energy efficiency.

•  Space and Time Saving: Efficor’s compact design results in significant space savings in the cabinet. Efficor also features smart wiring and connectivity technologies that enable faster assembly. The contactors can be mounted side-by-side without derating.


 

HOW THEY HELP

 

Efficor’s universal service coil technology enables coverage across an industry-leading range of voltages and voltage types (AC/DC), and a voltage suppression device is automatically built in. With the industry shifting to IE3 motor applications, which require 30-50% more inrush current to start, Efficor is tested and proven to meet your control needs.
