Emerson Industrial Automation's Browning® Branded V-belt Efficiency Calculator

The BrowningA(R) brandedV-belt efficiency calculator calculates projected energy savings, achievinggains of up to 3 percent for users. By entering a few key usage data points,including geographic location and motor horsepower, as well as days and hoursper week, users can instantly calculate the estimated savings potential ofupgrading from a wrapped to a notched V-belt. It helps design engineers quicklyestimate the energy-savings potential of using Browning premium notchedV-belts. This software - which eliminates the cumbersome effort of formulapreparation, estimating motor load assumptions and electricity-rate validation- provides a tool that with basic inputs allows the user to instantly seeprojected energy savings, based on the country or state the equipment will beoperated in. Payback calculations are reduced from hours or minutes toseconds. The calculator is unique - ithas a frequently updated database of average electricity rates, as publishedannually by the Energy Information Administration and other related agencies.The rates are automatically placed in the formulas when a user selects ageographic location from the drop-down list. This feature can also beoverridden, by simply entering a value kilowatt-hour (kWh) rate value in thekWh field, based on a negotiated electricity rate or peak rate change fromaverage rates.
