Deliver quality they'll remember

Destemming is key to a wine's flavor and quality. Stalks and stems are detrimental to its taste. This is where the Danfoss VLT® Midi Drive FC 280 came to the rescue by optimizing management and control of the destemming machine's speed of rotation.

Balance productivity with environmental sustainability

Energy savings - Energy savings are tied to the technology and the fact that applications need less energy when idle or operating with partial loads. Danfoss drives do the trick.

Fully automated operation - Danfoss drives enable a facility to increase it’s automation capabilities. Not every application is the same across all industries, but with customized programming, customers can determine what parameters are essential to their specific needs.

100 % full load factory tested - Having received an order – a drive specified by the customer – our factory builds it and tests it against real motors before shipping.

Condition based monitoring with Danfoss VFD

A breakthrough in drive technology: VLT® with Condition based monitoring

Danfoss VLT® Drives with built-in intelligence can now monitor the condition of motors and applications, allowing you to detect deviations in baseline parameters early in order to pro-actively intervene before the deviations have a negative impact on your operations

DrivePro® Site Assessments

With a DrivePro® Site Assessment, our well trained experts will assess your facility's VFD installed base and review your assets based on visual conditions, and evaluate the life-cycle stage of your individual assets. Based on this assessment you will receive a tailored service solution which will enable you to optimize up-time and reduce maintenance costs.

Site assessments may be done virtually using digital tools to support social distancing, or in person at your facility. 

To support the efforts of essential businesses during the pandemic, Danfoss Drives is offering FREE DrivePro® Site Assessments to qualifying businesses.

    VFD's are Secret Ingredient for Artisan Cheese Maker

    Recipes for cheese are thousands of years old, passed down through generations and crossing continents —like the Swiss cheese recipes used by Shep Ysselstein, owner and “grand fromage” of Gunn’s Hill Cheese in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada.

    Hospital selects DrivePro® programs to keep costs down, maintain efficiency

    As the largest regional medical center in San Joaquin County, St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, Calif., has 359-beds, employs over 400 physicians and more than 2,400 employees. Operating the HVAC mechanical equipment for a facility this large is a huge energy-conservation challenge. That's why St. Joseph’s made the decision to use variable frequency drives (VFDs) on HVAC pump and fan motors —a decision that continues to pay off today, thanks to an innovative upgrade plan using Danfoss VLT® Drives.

    Huge Water Savings from Food Processor’s Deep Well

    Food processing plants require a dependable source of water in large quantities for the washing and rinsing, steaming, cooking, and cooling of food, and during plant sanitation operations. That’s why a large Midwest food processor wanted full control over its water supply by constructing a private water well on its own property. However, what looked like a simple solution was quite complex below the surface — as the well driller discovered when he embarked on the project.
