Air Technologies® helps tool manufacturer save $8,000 in annual electricity costs
Air Technologies® helped a Michigan tool manufacturer save a projected $8,000 per year in energy costs and earn a $6,000 rebate for investing in energy-efficient equipment.
Viking Tool & Engineering Inc.—a manufacturer of tools, dies and molds—was running slightly short on air with its main air compressor. To meet the plant’s pressure needs at peak production times, the company had to run a second compressor. Viking wanted to reduce its electrical costs and contacted Air Technologies® for help.
Air Technologies® experts walked through the plant and analyzed the situation. They suggested Viking run an Atlas Copco GA 45 VSD air compressor. The GA 45 VSD is reliable and provides a long life at the lowest operating costs. By making this change, Viking could reduce energy costs by an average of 35% and overall lifecycle costs (LCC) by 22%.
Upon installation, Viking is projected to save $8,000 per year in electrical costs. Air Technologies® applied for a $6,000 energy rebate on behalf of the manufacturer. With a 3.5-year return on investment, Viking is positioned for continuous energy savings for many years to come.
