Announces 71% Reduction Of Energy Consumption
Mansfield, Georgia-July7th, 2015– Beaver Manufacturing Company announced today that lighting retrofits to their vaunted WAREHOUSE #3 is complete. Not only have factory floor light levels improved by 22% using next generation LED technology, they have reduced energy consumption by 71% over standard fluorescent tubes.
The accomplishment signals a trend in manufacturing where light levels and color rendering are imperative. “I was the most skeptical one at the start of this project,” claims Mike Hall, project manager with Ozburn Electrical Contractors of Covington, Georgia. “Once we’d installed half the building, the contrast was amazing. Instead of the reddish fluorescent pall, the light provided by the LEDs make the true colors much more discernible. And it’s amazing that we’re getting foot-candle readings greater than 20% over the fluorescents with just a quarter of the energy.”
Ease Of Installation
Hall says his team was able to easily retrofit each troffer within 10 minutes and in as little as five. The entire project was completed while the plant was shut down the week of July 4th in observance of Independence Day.
After a rigorous evaluation of several LED options, the principals at Beaver Manufacturing Company chose proprietary high output tubes manufactured by LED Corporations in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. (http://ledcorporations.com/) “Of course, we’re extremely proud to be chosen for this important project,” says Senior Account Manager Kevin Windle. “Our company’s high output LED product line achieves a DLC verified 140-to-155 lumens per watt (lm/w) as opposed to the 90-100 lm/w of standard LED tubes, which contributes to the popularity of these products particularly in manufacturing applications.” Windle has also introduced his proprietary high output products to Pratt & Whitney, as well as other manufacturers.
