USA: Earl Industries to Present Energy Saving Paper at Annual FMMS
On 30 and 31 August, Earl Industries will be exhibiting and presenting at the American Society of Naval Engineers’ annual Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium.
At FMMS 2011, located in San Diego this year, Earl Industries representatives from Ship Repair, Precision Manufacturing and Integrated Power & Controls will be exhibiting company’s latest work . On Tuesday the 30th, Earl’s Keith Hubble and Milo Hyde will present a technical paper entitled Energy Savings from Application of a Variable Air Volume Thermal Management System in the Medical Spaces of USS Mesa Verde (LPD-19).
Earl Industries installed its MIL-PRF-32168 compliant variable speed drive in this thermal management system prototype earlier this year, and will be reporting the results based on data recently collected from the ship’s Mediterranean cruise. This design is expected to significantly reduce energy consumption by reducing the load on the ventilation fan motor and chilled water system and minimizing use of the energy-intensive resistive re-heaters.
