Fans & Pumps
Stopped vibrations and noise
Improved customer experience
Halved power consumption and energy bills
Axxa Ltd’s client All Star Lanes in Bloomsbury London, experienced noisy vibrations from their ventilation system, disturbing diners in the restaurant. Being underground, the bowling alley needs to have a constant flow of fresh air. This was the job of the current fan system. All Star Lanes had two objectives: bring clean air in from above and extract fumes from the kitchen.
Commander delivered big benefits for the bowling alley. First, the NEMA bracket provided safe mounting onto the wall. It protects all the cables going in, ensuring the safety of the general public. Furthermore, the new drive is half the size of the original one, creating extra space. Previously, the system ran continuously at 30 amps. Commander runs at a much lower rate of 10-15 amps, generating significant savings of 50%, resulting in a better flow of air. By tuning the drive to a lower level, not only does it use less power, but it also stops the noisy vibrations going through the ducting.
The customer's view
From my point of view, this was a very simple project for us. Setting the drive up was very easy. It was up and running, the way we wanted, within half an hour. It was also easy to program; All Star Lanes have excellent support on hand if they ever need it.
