OTP feature vendor saves time and money with VLT drive

Danfoss Drive and Industrial Control

 

 

 

 

Since 1968, Danfoss — a featured vendor of OTP Industrial Solutions — has been dedicated to developing VLT® variable frequency drives to control speed, torque, acceleration, synchronization, positioning and overall performance of AC motors. The reliable and innovative VLT drive is designed to support any automation application and provide energy savings.

From pressure transmitter and temperature switch to solenoid valve and motor control gear, Danfoss offers a complete line of industrial control solutions to improve productivity and lower costs.

A Danfoss VLT drive success

The Danfoss North America (NAM) sales team has delivered the first VLT® FlexConcept® solution for Coca-Cola in North America. Coca-Cola has begun producing a new milk protein drink called Core Power, in a dairy production facility owned and operated by Fairlife in Coopersville, Mich.

Danfoss NAM has supplied a VLT® FlexConcept® solution for three packaging lines at the Coopersville facility. Each line uses about 60 pieces of the VLT® OneGearDrive® and the VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 302 respectively.

The Fairlife project is the first VLT® OneGearDrive® installation within Coca-Cola NAM bottling. Coca-Cola is so impressed with the Danfoss VLT® FlexConcept® solution, that Danfoss NAM has also been awarded a new can line for Coca-Cola Refreshments plant in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Savings in installation process

To secure these packaging lines, Danfoss NAM utilized a Danfoss Food & Beverage PUSH/PULL strategy, providing savings to both the equipment builder Descon Integrated Conveying Solutions, and the end user Fairlife.

Said Jeff Philpott of Descon, “The VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 302 has saved Descon time and money, for we can utilize the I/O connection of the FCD 302 and reduce analogue I/O block,” said Jeff. “Node connectivity is very expensive. Any additional Ethernet switches and I/O blocks add so much more cost, more wiring and more time to install.”

Streamlined hygienic design

Fairlife Maintenance Manager Robert Cunningham was highly impressed with the clean, hygienic design of the VLT® FlexConcept® solution: “The VLT® OneGearDrive® has no fan or bleeder valve, which is ideal for our dairy plant.”
