Air Technologies® saves Cleveland end mill manufacturer $8,000 in first year energy costs
Over time as Melin Tool’s production continued to increase, its compressor system was not able to keep up with plant demands, and it was often running out of air. The company needed professional insight and an expert solution to achieve maximum production efficiency.
Using an Mbox Air Audit, Air Technologies® specialists constructed a detailed report of the findings with recommendations to increase Melin Tool’s uptime and lower its compressed air costs. Air Technologies® experts determined that an Atlas Copco GA 30-90 (50 HP) air compressor would increase the plant air capacity and save the company almost $4,000 in annual energy costs.
The new variable speed drive air compressor was installed and set to meet Melin Tool’s specific production and compressed air requirements, avoiding the inefficient transition period from full to no load and eliminating off load power consumption. Melin Tool was approved for a $4,000 rebate from the power company, ultimately increasing Melin Tool’s first year energy cost savings to $8,000.
