Pumps that have been built about 20 years ago are highly energy inefficient by modern standards. Technological standards have moved forward, and energy efficiency has become a highly relevant topic in today’s industry. If you are currently operating with an old waterjet pump model, 2024 is a great year to send your old machine into its well-deserved retirement. But which device should replace it?

 

 First of all, replacing an old model with a new one pretty much always pays off, no matter the replacement. Modern pumps are more energy efficient than models from 20 years ago – even models with average performance save up to 25 % compared to their long-time predecessors. A new pump will amortize itself in a few years in any case. Aside from their efficiency, modern pumps are also generally quieter and easier to operate.

 

SAVE UP TO 25 % ENERGY WITH A NEW HP PUMP

*COMPARED TO OLDER PUMPS

 

Still, the new pump chosen should be as energy efficient as possible. BFT offers you a wide range of high-pressure water pumps and the matching accessories. With the two pump models SERVOTRON® and VECTRON®, BFT is taking a big step towards energy sustainability. However, what should not be neglected is the quality and the output of the machine. Therefore let´s take a closer look on SERVOTRON®.

 

 

What our SERVOTRON® HP pump can do for you

The unique combination of a pressure intensifier in conjunction with BFT’s patented servo drive implements unprecedented energy efficiency as well as reliability. This system makes SERVOTRON® one of the most environmentally friendly high-pressure pumps for waterjet cutting. With the SERVOTRON® high-pressure pump, an internal gear pump is coupled with a highly dynamic, frequency-controlled servo drive. In approximately 60 milliseconds, the motor is accelerated from zero to up to 2,700 rpm. This drive concept has a decisive advantage, i.e., improved energy efficiency! In comparison with an asynchronous motor, the efficiency of this new drive concept with a frequency-controlled servo drive is approximately 15 % higher.

 

60 MILLISECONDS FROM 0 UP TO 2,700 RPM

 

With its long service life, SERVOTRON® keeps the overall efficiency of your waterjet cutting system at a consistently high level. Pressure fluctuations remain at a minimum of +/-1 % thanks to its dynamic servo drive and a 2,49-liter damping volume in the accumulator. This low fluctuation protects the entire pump system, extends the service lives of high-pressure seals and non-return valves, and also has a positive effect on the cutting result.

 

SERVOTRON®: BFT’S HIGHEFFICIENCY POWERHOUSE

SERVOTRON® is equipped with a patented alternative drive system that is more efficient and consumes less power than conventional drives.

 

In short: BFT’s SERVOTRON® makes you cut more energy efficiently than ever before!

 

 

THE PERFECT TIME TO REPLACE YOUR PUMP IS NOW

The replacement of a machine with an energysaving model is subsidized by the EU. If you are operating in Europe, you can apply for a subsidy of up to 30 % for your investment at your local funding agency. In addition to the energy-efficient machine itself, planning and assembly costs are also funded (please consider that the funding is only granted for the replacement of existing, non-energy-efficient systems, the costs for a new purchase are not funded).
