Awareness raising for GreenTech
From Seminar to changing light bulbs
2015-04-07 | In order to create more awareness for energy-efficiency, environmental protection and GreenTech, ebm-papst Ural offered a wide range of seminars and workshops on GreenTech to students and postgraduates as well as their staff and customers.
ebm-papst Ural in Yekaterinburg organised a seminar for graduates and postgraduates studying with the Chair for Energy Saving at the Ural Federal University. This seminar aimed at giving comprehensive information on ebm-papst EC GreenTech products. Among other things, the seminar dealt with the benefits of EC fans and their application, what is behind the GreenTech strategy and how to save and go soft on energy resources.
Apart from this seminar for graduates and postgraduates, another seminar was run for ebm-papst Ural customers. This dealt with news and events focussing on energy-saving and eco-friendliness, as well as EC products and their benefits in ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration.
During the seminar
Global and local
To keep ebm-papst Ural staff comprehensively informed on „energy saving, environmental protection and conservation, and EC GreenTech products“, they were invited to attend an in-house workshop. Workshop discussions included both the global impact of these topics and ways in which every single member of staff could put them into practice.
At the workshop
on RadiPac fans
The Ural-based magazine „Techsovet“ published an article on energy-efficient and eco-friendly fans and motors from ebm-papst and the fact that Russian manufacturers use them for their own products in the fields of ventilation, refrigeration, heating, medical appliances and products of machine building. The main focus of the article was on the so-called RadiPac EC centrifugal fans. These are a line of medium-pressure centrifugal fans with a drive capacity of up to 12 kW in sizes 250 to 1250 mm in outside diameter. These fans have welded impellers with 7 backward curved blades. Due to their EC GreenTech motors, these fans can save up to 60 % in energy.
Going soft on the environment using LEDs
Between 22 October and 22 December, ebm-papst Ural successively replaced their 284 luminescent tubes (18 Watts) with LED lamps (7 Watts). With this, they can now save up to 6944 kW power per year and, due to the longer service life the LEDs have, they can also go soft on the environment and save resources.
