The AFS Twin Cities Chapter continues the 2017-2018 program year on Tuesday, January 9th with Tim Wasmer, The Wasmer Company. He will be speaking on "Energy Saving Ideas & Projects for Foundries" at the Green Mill Best Western Plus in Shoreview, Minnesota.
A little about our speaker:
Tim Wasmer is the President/CEO of Wasmer Company, which is located in New Holstein, Wisconsin. Wasmer Company is a full service energy efficiency consulting firm, comprised of a team of certified Energy Efficiency Consultants and Professional Engineers who are trained to develop and implement fully integrated energy efficient systems. The Wasmer Company has worked with several foundries including Neenah Foundry, Brillion Iron Works and Prospect Foundry educating them on how they can dramatically cut costs and increase both productivity and profitability, through better managment of their energy consumption.
Topics Tim will address include:
Compressed air management - It is estimated that only 20 to 25% of input electrical energy is delivered as useful compressed air. Leaks and misapplication accounts for the loss in usable compressed air, but Tim will share some ideas on how to get that air back.
Air quality - Air quality in your building is critical for employee health and happieness. Tim will discuss how, by installing equipment to better circulate and improve your air, you can also gain energy savings through better controlling your indoor temperature.
Lighting management - Studies reveal there are significant cost savings differences between low, medium and high quality lighting. And while any lighting upgrade may save you money in the short term, a properly designed system with automation controls mean long-term savings to your bottom line.
