“Gearing” Up To Improve Production Efficiencies
Motivair Corporation, based in Buffalo, New York, a global leader in Mission Critical Chillers and Cooling Systems announced completion of a two stage, high efficiency process cooling system designed to increase production output for the world’s largest Piston Pin supplier.
Burgess-Norton Manufacturing Company, a market leader in piston pin manufacturing and leading producer of powder metal parts operates seven facilities around the world to support its global customer base. BN has supplied millions of units to all types of combustion engines as well as many leading international customers throughout the automotive and truck markets.
In order to manage the project’s extreme temperature gradients inherent in the manufacturing process, Motivair supplied a Closed Loop Cooling System with an integrated duplex pump package to drop process temperature from 115F to 108F using only ambient temperature air. Redundant circulation pumps and individual overloads on all Motivair MFC cooling system fans ensure maximum production uptime. Secondary production processes require chilled water from a Motivair Free Cooling chiller designed to make 40F glycol year round. Whenever the outdoor ambient temperature drops below the return glycol temperature to the chiller, the MPC-FC Motivair Free Cooling chiller uses cold outside air to cool the process glycol in lieu of its refrigeration plant therefor creating substantial savings in operational costs while at the same time improving wintertime reliability. The Motivair Free Cooling Chiller was also equipped with redundant circulation pumps which rotate on a weekly basis and automatically switch over in the event of a lead pump alarm.
