How It Works
All electrical energy coming into a facility is known as Apparent Power, and the power we actually use is defined as Real Power. Even though you pay for it, a portion of the power entering your electrical system is lost to ground and never consumed. This is referred to as Reactive Power. The ultimate goal is to bring these two factors, Apparent Power and Real Power, closer together. The POWERHOUSE is able to accomplish this by capturing this lost voltage, store it and feed it back into your electrical system.
In order to accomplish this, The POWERHOUSE adds capacitance (stored charge) via a series of capacitors. This enables the unit to capture the Reactive Power, commonly lost to ground, store it, and put it back into the system, evenly across all phases, as it is needed.
By doing this, The POWERHOUSE:
▪ Greatly reduces low voltage issues
▪ Elevates voltage of the entire system
▪ Stabilizes voltage of the complete system
▪ Reduces voltage drops when demand increases.
▪ Reduces tripped breakers (as a result of low voltage or power spikes)
▪ Lowers kilowatt hours
By capturing and balancing the energy, The POWERHOUSE insures that the equipment is running at its optimum voltages, which results in less mechanical problems and lower maintenance costs, thus, increasing the life of your equipment.
To summarize, The POWERHOUSE:
▪ Balances voltage across all phases (legs)
▪ Balances the load and line harmonics between phases
▪ Reduces Reactive Power loss
▪ Reduces spikes in your energy demand, lowering your peak demand charges
▪ Reduces device vibration, noise and HEAT (motors are more efficient & run cooler)
▪ Provides surge protection (absorbing power spikes up to 50,000 volts)
▪ Increases lumens (amount of brightness) in your existing lighting system
▪ Lowers lighting maintenance costs by extending the life of bulbs and ballasts
▪ Requires no special cooling or air conditioned environment
▪ Helps protect computers, operating systems, timers, relays, burglar alarms, surveillance cameras and other low voltage equipment that is sensitive to power spikes or low voltage
The POWERHOUSE boxes shown here are standard units, which are ideal for a number of commonly found commercial and industrial applications. However, since power demands vary greatly from one location and application to another, it is important that each site be carefully evaluated, properly sized, and unit(s) strategically placed.
A licensed electrician must professionally install all POWERHOUSE units and sign the warranty card.
The RMS-1, like the Articmaster, is a mechanical device installed in the refrigerant circulation line of HVAC equipment. However, where the Articmaster improves efficiency at the condenser, the RMS-1 works to improve efficiency at the evaporator. The RMS-1 models achieve about 8 to 12% energy savings. The RMS-1 was designed expressly for the refrigeration market. The RMS-1 is installed downstream of the expansion device.
Short Payback Period: The RMS-1 can save enough electricity to pay for itself usually within two years. In some cases the payback period is less than one year.
Greater Heat Absorption In The Evaporator: The RMS-1 serves to create a greater surface area of the refrigerant as it vaporizes in the evaporator. This greater surface area enables better absorption of heat.
Designed for Reliability: No electronics means greater reliability.
Durable: Small, compact and ruggedly constructed, the RMS-1 is capable of standing up to the most punishing conditions. Unlike more conventional mechanical devices, it requires no adjustments or maintenance. The unit can be installed in both air and water cooled systems and is compatible with virtually all types of refrigerants including blends and synthetics, except Ammonia. The RMS-1 is fully patented and is proudly made in the USA. Over twenty years of research has gone into the design of the product.
Long Life: With a 10-year warranty and an expected lifetime of 30 years, the RMS-1 will out live the air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
Easy To Install: RMS-1 installation is simple and fast. A certified HVAC professional can install an the RMS-1 typically in 2 to 3 hours. Some basic training is required, and our technical manual contains information to qualify an HVAC tech to be a certified installer.
Made In The USA: The RMS-1 is made with superior quality using automated equipment at an ISO-9000 certified manufacturer.
The Flute Valve is a passive mechanical device with interior fins that serve to create a turbulent flow. It is useful where long pipe runs Flute Valve creates a more uniform, swirling refrigerant flow that reduces the boundary layer and insulating effects of a more laminar flow inside the refrigerant piping. Flute Valves are installed about every 20 to 30 feet of piping, and always just before the metering device.
Improved cooling: The Flute Valve will enable the refrigerant to micro-atomize or expand at a greater rate than normal when it is forced into a swirling motion immediately before being passed through a metering results in greater cooling.
Enhanced oil migration: The turbulent refrigerant flow created by the Flute Valves serves to circulate the oil in the refrigerant loop. Stagnant oil in the refrigerant piping acts as an insulator and a flow restrictor.
Extend Compressor Life: The improved oil circulation enabled by the Flute Valves will move more oil back into the compressor where it is intended to be. Some customers have reported sharp drops in compressor failures after implementing Flute Valves.
Designed for Reliability: With no moving parts in the Flute Valve, there is nothing to break or wear out.
Easy to Install: The Flute Valve is as easy to install as any filter or dryer.
