HVAC needs in industrial facilities range from simple chillers to complex systems. The highest priorities are system reliability and efficiency.
Trane’s HVAC systems are ideal for the demanding task of creating an efficient and productive environment in a multi-zone facility. Trane has wide experience in critical areas such as humidity management to prolong product shelf-life, precision temperature control in key manufacturing zones and energy efficiency to contain costs. Our precision control systems incorporate sophisticated performance monitoring and system optimization technology, helping to manage operating costs and reduce total cost of ownership.
Nice-Matin, which publishes and prints newspapers serving southern France, Monaco and Corsica, has been working with Trane for several years to honour the company’s commitment to sustainability, replace outdated systems and improve reliability.
The Gillette plant in Łódź, Poland – the world’s largest Gillette razor manufacturing, packaging and warehousing facility, is a division of Procter & Gamble Co. (P&G), a leading global consumer goods manufacturer. P&G’s commitment to environmental sustainability is inspired by its purpose of touching and improving lives now and for generations to come. Its goal is to reduce energy usage per unit production by 20 percent from 2007-2012, and it is on track to deliver. The company has also committed to a long-term environmental sustainability vision that includes powering all plants with 100 percent renewable energy.
In 2006 Transitions Optical engineers sought to address rising energy costs and aging infrastructure. Trane recommended replacing existing chillers with three instead of four as planned and integrating all components into a single, energy-efficient system using a Tracer Summit building management system. The company took out a Trane Select™ Service Agreement covering full equipment warranty plus full HVAC equipment and controls maintenance.
Alpla, an international leader in the plastic packaging industry, initiated an infrastructure improvement project in 1998 to address high energy costs and increase sustainability. Since then, improvements have been completed in 115 Alpla manufacturing facilities in all 33 countries in which the plants are located. These include replacing unreliable chilled water systems with high-efficiency chilled water solutions that ensure reliability for the cooling process, critical to the plastic bottle production process and a global preventive maintenance program that has lowered energy use by an average of 14.5 percent per year.
