Bad Power Quality: The Invisible Killer of Profits and Production

Plastics processors face up to $9.6 billion in power quality costs every year. That $9.6 billion is largely made up of preventable equipment failure, downtime and excessive energy costs. As a result, it’s no surprise that energy makes up a large portion of a plant’s overall expense, second only to material costs.

The go-to solution is often to replace equipment like motors, circuit boards and other electrical components. But according to the Electrical Power Research Institute (EPRI), 80% of these power quality problems are generated from issues within the facility itself.

 

The solution lies with understanding the invisible harm caused by poor power sources and distribution. So where do you start?
