Project #1: Wash Temperature Reduction<br />Worked with chemical suppliers to specify the correct low temperature chemical for our process while maintaining required 99.7% first pass quality rate.<br />Goal: Reduced operating temperature from 140°F to 110°F<br />Actual: Achieved 70°F. Bath warmed by heat of parts from our spotwelding process!<br />This reduced energy usage in the <br /> process by 75-80%. <br />/6<br />BNC Energy Savings- Natural Gas<br />
/7<br />Project #2: Compressor & Chiller Heat Recovery <br />Modified venting from compressor room, and chiller equipment to allow outside venting of warm air in summer, and inside venting to plant in heating season.<br />12,944 m3 of natural gas were saved per year.<br />BNC Energy Savings- Natural Gas<br />
