PROJECT BRIEF

EECO2 was asked to assist in reducing energy demand at a tablet manufacturing facility without compromising product quality or regulatory compliance. Challenges included:
  • High volumes of fresh air requiring dehumidification in very challenging ambient conditions
  • Adapting the HVAC system to meet current manufacturing requirements
  • Reducing the volume of the dust extraction system and install VSD
  • Initiating no operational setbacks.

SOLUTION

Our work included:

Install a fresh air cooling coil to eliminate dehumidification within the air handling unit (AHU)

Rebalance the areas dust extraction system to eliminate nozzles no longer required

Install a VSD onto the dust extraction unit to maintain pipework carrier velocity consequently enabling a reduced fresh air volume

Rebalance the Air Change Rates to reflect area manufacturing change of use.

Initiate non-operational air volume reductions.

Optimise BMS system.

Product risk assessments were developed with the site QA, production & engineering team.

Risk mitigation was evaluated and included where required.

Final design changes reflected a risk averse approach.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

It’s going to be a tough year and to know that we have such a good team supporting some of these changes makes the job a lot easier.
