Green Production Facility
We were recently classified as a green production facility by an independent audit that looked at overall energy usage, waste handling and output and water contamination profile.
Heat Exchange System
We identified heating as our single biggest energy and carbon cost. Integrating a 16kW MHI 430 heat exchanger into our existing HVAC system means we are now able to reclaim 68% of our heat. For nine months of the year we can heat the entire facility using the thermal output of the machinery alone.
Automated Power Management
By monitoring and managing our power usage centrally we are able to run our facility using no more energy than absolutely necessary. This has also enabled us to identify our least efficient machinery and place it at the top of the upgrade cycle.
As well as upgrading all our lighting to low-energy led light sources, we use sensor controlled lighting to reduce energy usage to the minimum necessary for a safe and comfortable working environment. Together these two approaches save 4.3kWh of electricity every 24 hours.
