NP&P believes in ABB drives. The best drive on the market and that’s why we are partnered with ABB. Whether you are saving energy or converting power for your well or booster pump, your system requires optimized control. In the event of a pump system failure, minimizing downtime is imperative. ABB manufactures drives in the U.S. for efficient delivery and provides 24/7 technical support – because your investment is our priority, too. Keeping costs under control is important to any industry. Diesel generators are only about 40% efficient and require continual refueling, which becomes a very expensive solution. When you leverage Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), you inherently save energy by applying electronic variable speed control to your pumps and pumping systems. For example, on centrifugal pump applications, the power requirement of the pump varies by the cube of the speed. This means when you reduce the pump flow by 20% using a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), rather than a bypass or valve flow control, you will typically cut energy costs in half. Enclosures rated for outdoor use We understand how important it is for you to have water where and when you need it. You need equipment that can stand up to the elements. ABB’s outdoor NEMA/UL Type 3R rated enclosure eliminates the need for solar shielding, includes a thermostatically controlled heater to protect against condensation, and a surge suppressor to safeguard against transient lightning strikes. When the drive is commissioned by an ABB Certified Start Up technician, you also benefit from an extend drive warranty.
