Water Project Cuts Water Use in Half
An efficient new closed-loop water cooling system at ORBIS’ Westmore facility in Ontario, Canada, is saving more than 1,585,000 gallons of water (6 million liters) a year and $150,000 in electricity. The system is used to cool machine hydraulics and set molten plastic in the molds during manufacturing.
The new cooling system incorporates a closed cooling tower and a high-velocity interior chiller. The technology ensures clean water, eliminates evaporation loss and uses ambient outside temperature in winter to cool the water. And because the system removes heat more quickly, the facility has reduced cycle times approximately 7% across the plant.
