A Filtration Company Increased Profits & Reduced Costs with Energy Efficient Air Compressor Equipment and Lighting

Case Study: Imerys Perlite
Michigan Air Solutions teamed up with EE LED Supply and to install more energy efficient air compressor equipment and lighting at the Imerys Perlite facility, which will save over 400,000 kWh per year, and $30,000 annually. Imerys also received over $32,259 in rebates and incentives from Indiana Michigan Power Company and Michigan Air Solutions as part of the energy efficiency program.

ENERGY AUDIT DISCOVERY
Imersys’ 100HP compressor was oversized and fully modulating during non-production times. In addition, the compressor was drawing 84% of full load amps even when producing no compressed air.

A new 75 HP variable speed energy efficient air compressor was installed, while the existing desiccant dryer was kept in place. This reduced energy consumption by nearly 280,000 kWh ($19,327).

After evaluating lighting energy consumption, output and annual cost, new fixtures were installed into a new lighting layout. This resulted in a 35% increase in lumens in the manufacturing space and a 38% increase around the building exterior. Energy usage was reduced by nearly 130,000 kWh, or $12,041.
