According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy,
a typical manufacturing facility uses 10% to 30% of its total electricity for the compressed air system.
Electricity accounts for 76% of the lifetime costs of a compressor.
Only half is used for operations. The remaining 50% or more of that electricity is wasted and lost to leaks.
- 20%-30% Savings Typical for Phase 1 (Leak Detection & Repair)
- Measurable Savings (within 1% accurate)
- Sustainable Savings (24/7 Continuous Monitoring of Compressed System)
- Make Informed Decisions About Changes to Compressed Air System
- Improve Lifetime Costs Through Condition Based Monitoring
- Automated Data Collection (wireless or to cloud)
- Emergency Alerts Via Cell Phone or E-Mail
CTRL has achieved no less than 20% savings through
leak detection & repair.
Site Survey: CTRL Systems, Inc. will provide a Preliminary Facilities Information worksheet which can be filled out by your facility's personnel. This information will be used to estimate the initial quotation and return on investment, as well as to customize the program to your facility's individual layout and needs.
Utility Incentives: CTRL will work with your facility to investigate whether your energy provider offers any incentives for sustainable energy savings projects. If incentives are available, CTRL will complete the required application paperwork on behalf of your facility. Available incentives can drastically reduce the already-low overall cost of ESP, cutting months off of your company's estimated Return on Investment.
Installation of the ESP Monitoring Equipment (WattsCTRL): CTRL will coordinate the installation of WattsCTRL and all related ESP equipment with the designated facility personnel.
Our conditioned based Energy Savings Program (ESP) provides an easy-to-install monitoring system - WattsCTRL - which measures your current compressed air usage on an ongoing, real-time basis with historical data-keeping.
CTRL will work with your personnel to establish an initial base line of your energy usage, and then train your team to quickly locate and flag leaks in your facility with the CTRL UL101 Ultrasonic Leak Detector. After confirming repair of the leaks, WattsCTRL will compare previous and current energy usage and report the achieved savings - in hard data, not an educated "guesstimation".
Any energy savings intiative requires sustainability to be truly effective. With this in mind, WattsCTRL will set thresholds for energy consumption. When these thresholds are crossed, the necessary personnel will be automatically notified that leak detection and repairs are needed to sustain ongoing energy savings. Through this entire turnkey process, you will see meaningful improvements to your company's bottom line - and the savings will be measurable in months, not years.
Our customers have sustained the savings through on-going monitoring in years 1, 2, etc.!
Training & Initial Monitoring: CTRL will conduct a comprehensive training session to familiarize facility personnel with both ESP and ultrasonic leak detection. This training will be demonstrative, site specific, and hands-on. Each attendee will learn usage and techniques of the UL-101 and achieve certification for the course.
Leak Detection & Repair with the UL101: The leak detection survey (or audit) utilizes the UL101 to locate, tag, repair, and confirm repairs of all of the leaks within your facility. The full participation of your facility personnel (or contracted specialists) is crucial to the survey process, and it is imperative that the task is completed in a timely manner.
Post-Audit Monitoring, Setting Thresholds & Sustainability: After repairs are completed, CTRL will conduct a second monitoring of compressed air use over the same predetermined length of time as the initial monitoring. The data collected will be compared to initial monitoring values to determine changes in electrical usage and cost savings.
