Application of Motor Control Cuts Costs

Motor Control Helps Cut Energy and Maintenance Costs at Refinery

At the Daqing Refinery, the crude oil pump from a 3,500-ton pressure reduction process line maintains a steady flow rate. It produces 8,000 to 10,600 tons per day of crude oil. The crude oil pump, however, consumed a large amount of electrical energy in the process. With our solutions, Daqing Refinery is now able to maintain significant production numbers and save money with more efficient energy consumption.
