Reduce the energy intensity of COMMERCIAL KITCHENS

The energy intensity of restaurants is undeniable. Heat loads created by cooking equipment, exhaust fans, additional ventilation equipment, and refrigeration can drive energy costs sky-high.[1]

How can you gain greater control over costs, comfort, and energy efficiency? Modernize HVAC systems and ventilation fans by retrofitting them with the Turntide Smart Motor System. It’s a simple drop-in replacement that extends the useful life and efficiency of systems you already own, while adding a cloud-based platform for greater control. Built-in remote monitoring enables visibility from anywhere, monitoring and control of facility sensors and lighting, and failure detection capabilities to alert you of issues before they become problems.

The Smart Motor System is a drop-in replacement for the outdated, inefficient induction motors that are pervasive in HVAC systems and exhaust fans found in every restaurant. It’s the first software-driven switched reluctance motor: the most efficient, reliable, and intelligent motor ever made.

Smart Motor System retrofits deliver energy savings and better control.

  • Reduces operating costs and carbon footprint by reducing the use of fan motor power by 65% on average
  • Maintains ASHRAE ventilation standards while reducing energy use
  • Improves comfort using advanced controls and logic to optimize overall system performance
  • Provides reliable temperature monitoring for coolers

The Smart Motor System delivers lower costs, reduces energy consumption, requires less maintenance, and provides greater reliability and an improved level of control. Contact us to learn more.

Why does the world need a smarter motor?

Electric motors and the systems they drive are the single largest electrical end-use, consuming twice as much as lighting.
