The current relamping of our fastener manufacturing plant in Rockford, IL completes a plant wide relamping that had its initial start in 1998. Replacing 264 T12 florescent fixtures with high efficiency T8 units and reflectors. The new units use half the energy while maintaining the same lighting levels. With a ComEd rebate of 50% of the cost and a Federal Energy Credit on taxes, results in less than a 1 year payback.
Another area for energy conservation that Specialty Screw Corporation is investigating is the utilization of solar concentrators to preheat our aqueous parts washer fluid that has a total of 600 gallons of processing for our new three stage parts washer being delivered in September 2008. With integrated filtering equipment, the new parts washer from Ransohoff will further reduce our waste processing fluids in half, which originally we reduced in half when Safety-Kleen installed a waste water recycling unit back in 1998.
Specialty Screw Corporation has an on going Green Initiative which you can view at our website. You can also monitor Specialty Screw through our RSS news feed.
