Research facilities can stop wasting money, water, time, and productivity today

Cooling systems can create a steady flow of cool water at a precise temperature for research equipment, which helps prevent emergency shutdowns.

The Cannon Design Products Group recently worked with a confidential client needing to cool large research equipment still relying on once-through cooling.  Working with the organization, we helped them realize they were wasting more than 2.6 million gallons of water annually and $16,000 in water and sewer costs on just ONE of the pieces they needed to cool. Fortunately, our team was able to introduce the organization to the eVap 1500 cooling system and immediately eliminate this waste – making both the facility and our world as a whole more sustainable.

The eVap Cooling Systems is able to use the existing water loop and create a steady flow of cool water at exactly the temperature and pressure the research equipment needs. The cooling system keeps the fluid separate, clean and can even use special fluid developed by 3m that does not conduct electricity.

How can this system increase productivity in research environments? It ensures that when city water main supplies encounter breaks or other challenges that cut off the flow of water to the building – research equipment won’t require emergency shut downs. It also eliminates the risk of flooding, another major risk in laboratories that rely on once-through cooling.

Our team encounters organizations like this – those still relying on once-through cooling and wasting resources – and we recognize they no longer must accept these dated standards. Research institutions can and should begin using the innovative eVap technology immediately to save money, water, time and productivity.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
