Dairy – Electric Motors and Drives

Traditionally Irish dairy parlours are orientated towards single phase electric motors, however efficiency of pumps and motors used in dairy parlours has been gradually improving over the years.

A change is now occurring where many dairy parlours are beginning to introduce 3 phase motors & Variable Speed Drives (VSD) to run the parlour. A VSD maintains the vacuum level by controlling vacuum pump speed.  If there is a demand for more capacity the VSD will increase the speed of the vacuum pump accordingly.  This results in reduced energy consumption by a parlour.

Invertek drives are also offered as part of our overall energy package dedicated to the dairy sector.  Click here for more information on Invertek drives.
