Scope of Work:

Armstrong International developed, engineered, and installed six energy conservation projects at Covidien’s Acetaminophen Facility.

The projects were financed by Armstrong over a five year term. Armstrong provides monthly engineering review and maintenance support for the heat recovery and steam distribution systems.

Upgrade Projects:

  • Engineered and installed eleven condensate contamination sensors/dump valves to dump condensate for boiler protection

  • Engineered and installed an automatic boiler blowdown system

Benefits:

Armstrong projected annual savings of $364,000 for the projects, but Covidien was able to document in excess of $500,000 in energy savings. Financing, provided by Armstrong, enables savings to immediately offset costs and eliminate a large capital outlay.
