Efes Pilsen improves efficiency and sustainability with Danfoss VLT® OneGearDrive®

June 24, 2016 

Savings in energy and maintenance costs at the Ankara plant

At the Efes Pilsen Ankara plant, 16 old gear motors running bottling lines were replaced by VLT® OneGearDrive® units. Featuring a permanent magnet (PM) motor, which is a 3-phase synchronous non-salient motor, the VLT® OneGearDrive® achieves up to 89% efficiency. This efficiency rating exceeds the IE4 Super Premium Efficiency class. It operates at high torque, and it features a compact motor frame size.

Benefits in a nutshell

  • Huge energy savings
  • Short payback time of 10 months
  • Long service life
    The VLT® OneGearDrive® decreases maintenance needs, costs, and production losses. Oil change of the gear box is required only once every 35,000 operating hours. That is approximately once every seven years
  • Reduced inventory costs
    The VLT® OneGearDrive® and the VLT® FlexConcept® enable maximum flexibility with a minimum number of unit variations such as motors, gear unit sizes or AC drives. VLT® FlexConcept® enables up to 70% reduction in variants
  •  Watertight construction
    The VLT® OneGearDrive® can be cleaned down quickly and easily, so the brewery saves time, and costs of water and detergents
  • EHEDG certification
    With its high compliance level, the VLT® OneGearDrive® is eminently suitable for installation in Europe and in the USA
  • OneGearDrive® also complies with the rules of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA or USFDA), a federal agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services
