When it comes to upgrading your facility’s air compressor system, there is a reason why Scales is a popular go-to option in the industry. Our attention to detail on each project, as well as a vast line of quality components allow us to turn a good plan into a great system and often results in substantial savings in annual operating costs.
One of our valued customers, Globe Die Cutting Products Incorporated, invited us down to their facility to tell us about their recent satisfaction with their new compressed air system from Scales. The Quincy QGV100 system that Scales recently installed was a part of an overall energy and cost savings effort. Headed by our own Davide Gagliardo, the team was quick to analyze the options for assembling a more efficient system that would also qualify for state rebates!
Davide explains the different options for conserving energy after his team took multiple tours of the facility, checking for every available opportunity to eliminate waste. Davide states “Northeast electricity can cost anywhere from 13 cents to 17 cents per kilowatt. It certainly makes sense when you’re having conversations with your customers to bring up electricity costs and solutions to save them some money.”
The QGV100 qualified for state rebates as a certified energy efficient compressor which was made possible thanks to a few special features. The ability of the variable speed driven (VSD) compressor to throttle down to 25% helps to significantly decrease energy use when operating in decreased compressed air demand situations. Another benefit of the Quincy VSD compressor is that it can maintain a narrow pressure variance versus fixed speed compressor designs.
But Global Die Cutting Products is benefitting from further energy savings because we designed their new system with heat recovery. The new compressed air system throws off roughly 250,000 BTU’s of heat. Through the heat recovery system installed by Scales, Global Die is using this heat to significantly reduce the annual costs of heating their facility.
This is just one example of the many satisfied Scales customers. We understand that every application is unique and we have the skills and knowledge that it takes to get your operation running at peak efficiency with the highest quality products available.
