Electrivia



80% of your electrical power cost

is consumed by 20% of your electric equipment usually your largest motors.


An electric charge was first produced by machine in 1672. German physicist Otto von Guericke turned a crank on a sulfur sphere and a charge was induced when he held his hand against it. If youre looking to save in electrical power costs, dont be misled. There is usually no simple relationship between what you spend on power and the output of any particular section of your plant.

Shortly after electricity was harnessed around the turn of the century, men in black traveled to county fairs to perform public executions, hauling a dynamo in the back of their horseless carriage. Among the most interested observers were scientists and doctors who flocked to the fairs to see the effects of electrocution on humans. The gruesome practice eventually was outlawed.
