Many assessments suggest that energy costs for fan systems can be reduced by 20 percent or more, simply by improving fan and system efficiency.  Ideal for industrial facilities that spend a significant amount on energy to operate fan systems or have specific goals for energy or CO2 emissions reduction, the energy monitoring service - fan systems from SKF offers sustainable improvements through regular monitoring or selected systems.  Also, by combining the service with an existing condition monitoring program, facilities can improve overall reliability and employ in-house maintenance personnel to create one comprehensive asset management system.

“The Energy Monitoring Service - Fan Systems from SKF helps free up valuable time, allowing specialists to concentrate on significant fan issues,” says Mike Dwyer, Sr. Specialist Energy & Sustainability Management, SKF.  “By combining technology with this Energy Monitoring Service, SKF provides a customized and cost effective way to establish a comprehensive fan system energy monitoring program.”

The Energy Monitoring Service - Fan Systems from SKF applies a flexible process that follows some key steps: fan system selection process; establishing a database that includes details on the fans included in the monitoring program; programming route details into SKF @ptitude Inspector; training operations staff; and program hand over and routine monitoring.  Repairs can be scheduled as indicated by the process, and other energy efficiency measures considered, such as lubrication, balancing, alignment, belt tensioning, and the use of low friction bearings such as SKF series E2 (where applicable).

Additionally, the Energy Monitoring Service - Fan Systems from SKF can be combined with SKF technologies and service contracts to establish a complete maintenance program.  Adding such programs as SKF Microlog Inspector (formally SKF Marlin) and SKF @ptitude Inspector with operator driven reliability (ODR), you can create a centralized data repository of energy efficiency and reliability data.

SKF is a leading global supplier of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems and services which include technical support, maintenance and reliability services, engineering consulting and training. SKF is represented in more than 130 countries and has 15,000 distributor locations worldwide. Annual sales in 2009 were SEK 56,227 million and the number of employees was 41,172.
