HVAC Premium Efficient Motor Upgrade
Date: 6/01/2008 - 9/10/2008
Commissioned By: New York Power Authority
Location: Department of Sanitation Vehicle Maintenance Facility Queens, NY
Services Provided: 70 HVAC Premium Efficient Motor Upgrades, Retrofitted New Motor Bases, Installed New Sheaves, Belts and Motor Connections, Replaced and Wired New HVAC Blower controls.
Background: In conjunction with the New York Power Authority, KG Power Systems developed and initiated an HVAC Efficiency Upgrade Program for the Department of Sanitation Vehicle Repair Facility in Queens, New York. The 400,000 Square Foot Facility had an existing HVAC System that was operated with inefficient motors and worn power transmission. The belt driven fans and blowers had worn sheaves, broken belts, soft foot motor bases and non-operating controls. The direct drive exhaust driven units were misaligned causing excess vibration and damage to the equipment. Large energy costs and frequent replacement of key components of the HVAC system was costing the facility thousands of dollars every year.
The solution called for a complete revamp and replacement of the HVAC System's Power Sources.
Opportunities and Solutions:
• 70 Inefficient motors were replaced by new Premium Efficient Motors
• 55 Worn sheaves, belts and connections were replaced.
• 30 Outdated controls were replaced and rewired.
KG Power systems completed the removal and replacement of all inefficient motors and connections in 15 working days and one month before the scheduled completion date.
