With the RoboVent eDrive™, your collector’s airflow is monitored and the motor’s RPM is automatically adjusted to compensate for filter loading. As you can see in the graph to the right, a collector running
without eDrive™ uses more energy in the beginning of the filter’s life
cycle than a collector with eDrive™ does.

Benefits of the RoboVent eDrive™ include:

• Less stress on filter media, which leads to longer filter life
• Decrease in energy usage by approximately 40%
• Improved equipment performance
• Decreased filter costs
• Decreased maintenance costs

Using the RoboVent eDrive™ with your dust collector will compress and straighten your energy peaks and valleys, cutting your energy usage by approximately 40% and increasing your filter life by as much as 30%.

The RoboVent eDrive Saves You Money by Decreasing Energy Use and Extending Filter Life

In the example on the right, this 10 HP unit would be using 7.457 KWs per hour of operation. This example shows that you would save 41% over the 18-month period. In this example you have increased the filter life by four months or a 29% filter life savings.
