What is your relationship with USES MFG?
United Energy Technologies, Inc. is licensed distributor for USES MFG. and has been since its inception in 2010. We decided to partner with USES MFG for many reasons. The main reason is after all of our intensive research and background with power factor we found USES to be the ONLY product that actually reduces kw and increases power factor without causing resonance issues.
What are your sizing capabilites?
Full-featured three phase power quality sizing to maintain, diagnose and troubleshoot electrical systems. UET measures and records a broad spectrum of power quality parameters. Capable of measuring and recording voltage, current, voltage anomalies (sags or surges), harmonics, energy and power (active, reactive and apparent), power factor (true and displacement), and frequency. UET’s unique sizing comes as a complete service with Sizing Reports, UET Patented Product Recommendations & Return on Investment Analysis (ROIA). Sizing Specifications: 600 Voltage or Below / Single & Three Phase Systems, AC Current up to 1000A, AC Voltage, Active, Reactive and Apparent Power, & Peak, All readings are True RMS, Timed Interval Sampling (TIS)
What is USES?
USES® Mfg Inc. power enhancement technology represents a true, sole source breakthrough in energy conservation.
Inventor E. Brian Wohlforth, in developing a customized surge suppression device for a client, created a unique solution with applications and benefits far beyond simple surge and spike protection. His innovative approach to power conditioning offers energy reduction on inductive loads, and equipment protection on all loads with unsurpassed savings potential.
Capable of addressing the entire electrical system in an industrial, commercial, recreational or residential facility, our systems work to save money in six key ways:
Lowering True Kilowatt Demand
Lowering Kilowatt Hours
Reducing Total Current Content, Including Harmonics
Correcting Power Factor
Protecting Against Surges and Spikes
Reducing Motor Wear and Maintenance
When business means power, USES® Mfg Inc. means business.
Manufacturers, facility managers, business owners, municipalities, school systems, colleges and university campus managers, hospital and health care administrators – the list of operations is endless. Our systems can reduce energy consumption while improving the effectiveness of their electrical power, extending equipment life, improving equipment function, and reducing electromagnetic fields from the point of connection on inductive loads.
USES® Mfg Inc. power enhancement systems achieve energy savings for all inductive loads, including motorized equipment (air-conditioning units, elevators, pumps, refrigerators, manufacturing machinery, etc.) and magnetically ballasted lighting, while providing reliable protection for all your surge-sensitive microprocessor-based equipment.
USES® Mfg Inc. power enhancement technology saves you money by lowering true kilowatt demand and reducing kilowatt hours while correcting power factor, protecting against surges and spikes, reducing total current content (including harmonics) and reducing motor wear and maintenance. Our system also improves load balancing and voltage regulation. It treats your entire electrical distribution system, rather than simply addressing individual loads, and it is recommended when surge and spike protection is a primary concern.
USES® Mfg Inc. installations are fully engineered to optimize the benefits of the technology while causing zero downtime or loss of productivity.
It treats your entire electrical distribution system, rather than simply addressing individual loads. USES® Mfg Inc. industrial units – up to our 600 volt model – are installed at the electrical panels supplying inductive loads or at the disconnect links for large motors (elevators, air-conditioning units, heavy-duty machinery, etc.).
It is recommended for any panel at which surge protection is a primary concern, and it is fully engineered to optimize the benefits of the technology while causing zero downtime or loss of productivity.
Let USES® Mfg Inc. downsize your energy budget while improving your cash flow! Properly engineered, we have found that a USES® Mfg Inc. system in a manufacturing environment can pay for itself within as few as 24 months of installation.
The prestigious Canadian Standards Association (CSA), the equivalent of Underwriters Laboratory in the U.S., has concluded a yearlong look at a unique American energy efficiency product: USES® Mfg Inc. Shunt Efficiency Systems. With the release of its findings, USES® Mfg Inc., the Connecticut-based manufacturer of this sole source, breakthrough technology, welcomes still further official acknowledgment of the potential of USES® Mfg Inc. systems for enhancing performance, protecting equipment and saving energy.
The results of the CSA report support USES® Mfg Inc. claims that include five specific areas of benefit to the power consumer:
Reduced kW Consumption
Increased Power Factor
The CSA testing parameters did not include quantitative measurement of significant additional factors: soft-dollar benefits like surge and spike protection, reduced equipment wear and tear, and reduced total current content, including harmonics.
Abitibi-Price is the Canadian pulp and paper manufacturer at which the USES® Mfg Inc. system was tested. With the combined power needs of their 10 locations in Canada and two in the U.S., Abitibi-Price consumes the equivalent of one percent of the electrical power generated in Canada. While the CSA report discusses results on a single unit, there is a synergistic effect on power enhancement as additional units are installed in parallel. An example of this impact came directly from Abitibi-Price, as reported in an article in International Pulp & Paper Magazine at the start of the CSA evaluation process in 1996.
The CSA report on USES® Mfg Inc. Shunt Efficiency Systems confirms similar findings at scores of application sites in the U.S. and Canada, from private homes to commercial and industrial facilities. It offers objective proof that our power enhancement equipment lives up to its promises with enhanced performance, protection and savings – good news to power users facing the new financial and operational challenges of energy management in the new millennium.
