Your designs already have to meet enough requirements when it comes to functionality, costs, safety and all the directives. But energy efficiency isn’t just another requirement. It’s a way of making machines and systems better, more productive and even safer.
There’s a basic rule that states: ‘no larger than necessary’. There are also a number of tried-and-tested points on the checklist: short distances, preventing leakages, etc. And there are innovative components from Festo that save energy by shutting down automatically, reducing power when less is required or simply by having to move less dead weight. It’s important that you know where the energy-saving potential is and which option has which effect. That’s what this is all about.
Festo offers a wide range of proven products and solutions to use energy more efficiently, from the front end to the valve and valve terminal level and to highly efficient compressed air preparation.
Air-flow analyser SFGA
The portable measuring box SFGA from Festo measures the pressure and flow rate at the machine level. This provides you with accurate, well-documented consumption data for assessing energy efficiency.
At Festo, you can rely on technical experts and efficient technologies to ensure that your machines and systems consume fewer resources and less energy. This not only reduces CO2 emissions, but also your operating costs. And it leads to increases too, for example in the sustainability of your production processes and your company’s productivity. Our knowledge, our experience and our products can all be found in this manual.
