Norgren's compressed-air program cuts plant energy costs by up to 40%
Norgren Inc. and Pneu-Logic Corp. join together to launch the industry's first intelligent compressed-air management program, which offers plant-wide analysis, real-time process control and pneumatic system design in a single, integrated solution. The Norgren IQ program aggregates and analyzes trend data and tightens parameters over time. Unlike 'one and done' products, which are limited to single assessments, Norgren IQ provides continuous monitoring and adjustment.
The program assesses both supply and demand of compressed air in factories and adjusts it dynamically to ensure continuous, optimal performance. This saves energy, reduces operating expense, prevents downtime and increases productivity. Norgren IQ's open architecture interfaces with a variety of air compressors. Industry sectors expected to benefit from IQ include chemicals, metal, petroleum, coal, transportation, electronics, food and beverage, textiles, rubber, plastics, glass, lumber and paper.
