PATH TO SUCCESS
An initial meeting took place to better understand the end user’s blueprint for success. A set of criteria were identified and work commenced on accurately validating the components that defined the goals.
The tools used to quantify operational savings on the 800 Ton chiller involved a utility study and a series of laboratory studies designed to allow trending and consequently validate the process.
