SuperFoam Limited; Kenya’s leading manufacturer and distributor
of Polyurethane foam products is using iVolt’s ground
breaking technology to make significant improvements in production
line efficiency as well as slash energy consumed at
their factory’s production line.
Superfoam has always had its roots in technological advances
and has the commitment to invest and develop the best Manufacturing
equipment and processes. Like most, they were facing
huge efficiency losses due to prominent power problems,
causing frequent damage to their production line equipment.
Following a sit down with Superfoam’s Energy auditors in
search for a solution for protection & energy saving, The IVOLT
system was proposed.
The voltage optimisation technology was chosen over other
systems on the market not only because it’s a variable reduction
system offering up to 30% more savings than fixed reduction
units, but because it offers an integrated Intelligent
Real Time (IRT TM) energy monitor. This device is capable of
accurately tracking the savings being achieved in real time.
Currently, Superfoam’s production line is running efficiently,
on clean optimised power, achieving 4.51% energy saving.
On the basis of success of this project, iVolt are currently
looking in to projects for the assembly lines as part of the
factories pursuit to reduce energy consumption and adhere
to ERC regulations, and efficiently run the manufacturing
process despite frequent power; Improving power protection
and energy saving. The iVolt once fitted has a minimum service
life of 25 years, making for an excellent long term net
savings at the factory. The ongoing costs and maintenance
requirements of the iVolt are virtually zero. With a full 15
year parts and labour warranty offered, SuperFoam factory
managers can be confident of ongoing power protection and
The iVolt has really helped us in terms of saving energy and
balancing voltages. It has also been very useful when it
comes to power protection of our sensitive equipment.
