Energy Savings Calculator

To increase reliability, lower emissions and reduce costs, proper lubrication is more important than ever. Molykote® lubricants from Dow Corning reduce friction to lower the amount of energy needed to operate equipment — helping the environment and saving you money.

Use the Molykote® Energy Savings Calculator to see how much you could save:

  • All energy is calculated in kW HP(electric) x 0.746 = kW
  • All calculations are based upon electric motors driving gear boxes, pumps, compressors or fans
  • It is possible to enter the efficiency of each device if you know it.
    • For the banner: we have assumed worm gearboxes are 72% efficient and are running 8 hours per day for 240 days per year.
    • For the main page: you can choose your parameters
  • In all calculations we have assumed that losses due to inefficiency may be improved by 8% by improved Lubrication (Lubricant and Maintenance Best Practice)
  • We have assumed Grid Electricity is supplied where 1kWh produced has contributed 0.43 kg Carbon Dioxide (CO2) to the environment.
  • We have assumed users are aware of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme where a tradable value for CO2 is relevant. If you are not able to trade CO2 set the Value to zero.
    For up to date values visit www.pointcarbon.com or other trading web sites
  • Set your currency and electricity cost (per kWh) to personalize your calculation.
