Armstrong Fluid Technology launches a new control solution that improves the energy efficiency of chiller plants. Seamlessly interfacing with an existing building or chiller-plant automation system, the OPTI-VISOR controls the key components of a plant, providing the optimal operating settings for equipment, such as water-cooled variable-speed chillers, variable-flow cooling towers and variable-speed pumps on the chilled water and tower water circuits. By controlling the chiller plant settings to maximize system-wide efficiency, OPTI-VISOR will generate valuable energy savings even when applied to recently installed equipment. Armstrong estimates an energy savings of 15% to 30% can be expected from a typical installation on an existing all-variable-speed chiller plant.
