Power quality specialist REO UK has completed a contract in the Middle East worth €300,000, supplying a building management company with its REOWAVE Passive harmonic filters to support the project’s HVAC systems.
REO UK has developed a range of products dedicated to eliminating power quality problems in HVAC applications and was selected to support the project because of the potential savings offered.
“We have created a series of products like the REOWAVE Passive filters to comply with HVAC guidelines and mitigate the chances of equipment failure or interruption, which could result in discomfort to homeowners and guests. This is particularly important in apartment buildings where there are more sophisticated building management systems, with electronics controlling everything from the lifts to the doors, which can all be compromised by poor power quality.”
REO UK points out that poor power quality can damage components including heat exchangers, fans, pump motors, condensers and furnaces, reducing their lifespan and raising energy costs. During the assessment stages of the contract bid, the average savings made from the reduction in the total harmonic distortion of the input current (THDi) because of the harmonic filters was estimated at 21.3%.
