Calculator shows possible cost savings
25 January 2013
With factory electricity bills soaring and a likely need for companies to account for energy use in their annual reports, software from Parker Legris demonstrates the savings it says can be made using its Transair comp
The Transair Energy Efficiency Calculator produces a detailed cost and payback analysis based on information from a location's compressor room operation, compressed air network and energy costs. The results can be applied to existing or potential applications.
"Like for like," says Parker Legris MD,Malcolm Crossley, "the payback time for choosing or converting to even a relatively large Transair system can be as little as 15 months when compared to galvanised steel. Perhaps the most significant feature of each energy efficiency report is the high cost of energy to a user who remains with galvanised steel - mostly, thousands of pounds per year." The calculator is ratified by independent auditors. Calculations used for galvanised steel are based on BCAS flow rates, with installation costs provided by independent pipework distributors.
