Printing & Packaging
Our Online Meter is extremely adaptable. It is currently being used in various sectors all across South Africa. We have meters operating in Industrial, Healthcare, Hospitality and Financial sectors. The packaging sector is the next logical step, since it falls so closely with the Industrial and Manufacturing industry.Our Products and Services have been successfully implemented in Africa’s leading Packaging company: Nampak. Some of our clients include Astrapak and Polyoak Packaging.
Our online meters can be installed all along the production process, to measure and analyse data. The information that was gathered can either be used to reduce energy costs or to better implement the existing infrastructure and equipment to optimize energy usage. Our energy management service will help you in forming the best possible plan.
Other services like, power factor survey and an Energy Audit can further assist in efficient energy usage. The Audit and subsequent information derived from it, will for example state that your motors are too powerful or they are not running at optimal levels, which decreases efficiency.
Detailed measurement also allows engineers to target specific areas for energy interventions and measure the results of any projects implemented.Several sites have used the data for bill verification exercises with great results. The bill verification exercise become even more important in areas with less efficient city councils (such as Johannesburg) where we see many sites using Power-Star data purely for bill verification purposes. It is critical to make sure you are billed correctly, as any efficiency projects will only show expected financial benefits if the billing is correct.
