CHANGE IN CLEANING EQUIPMENT SAVES 1.32 MILLION GALLONS (4,996,744 LITERS) OF WATER AND A US$1 MILLION BOILER INVESTMENT
A large manufacturer was looking for ways to reduce water use – especially heated water. Automated cleaning equipment was already being used and the manufacturer was skeptical that different equipment could make a dramatic difference.
New automated tank cleaners were installed in 14 large mixing tanks.
MANUFACTURER SAVES MORE THAN US$140,000 ANNUALLY
A manufacturer needed to improve the application of binder fluid on fiberglass prior to it entering a curing oven. The air atomizing nozzles in use didn’t apply the fluid uniformly and frequently applied more than was necessary.
In addition, the air atomizing nozzles produced mist that required extra maintenance downtime for equipment cleanup. The high energy costs associated with compressed air was also a concern to the manufacturer.
COAL-FIRED POWER PLANT REDUCES WATER USE BY 50% AND IMPROVES WORKER SAFETY WITH NEW WASHDOWN NOZZLES
Removing coal dust on transfer conveyors and tunnels was challenging for one coal-fired power plant in the southeastern US. Spray nozzles were being used for washdown but didn’t provide adequate impact and coverage for complete dust removal despite using high volumes of water.
Every night, after the washdown process ended, workers with hoses would manually clean hard-to-reach and high dust accumulation areas.
