Company Profile: Integrity Print is the United Kingdom’s leading provider of operational business print requirements, encompassing the production of base stationery, integrated cards and labels, security print, digital colour, and transactional mailing services.
Inteliair Installation: Printing and paper trimming facility. The management of this company have been seeking to reduce their annual energy costs which have reached in excess of £1,000,000 per year and as such have undertaken a detailed audit of their entire production facility. As a specialist in dust control systems we were asked to look at their paper trim systems and recommend a way for reducing the energy consumed by these systems. We recommended the installation of the Inteliair control system on one of their extraction systems as a trial prior to proceeding and installing it on all of their air movement systems. The system chosen for the trial is fitted with a 37kW main extract fan which extracts from 10 paper trim positions and feeds an externally situated separator and compactor. We installed 10 automatic control dampers each connected to either current sensing or manually operated rocker style switches depending on the requirement at each position. In addition the main control unit was configured to start the main compactor system whenever the fan is in operation and also run a 2.5 minute clean cycle (fan running at full speed and all positions open) every ½ hour in order to avoid the risk of any paper collection within the ductwork due to the distance between the fan outlet and the separator unit. The performance of this system has been independently monitored via a logging device connected directly to the power feed to the main fan and in the 3-months this system has been operational even with the regular cleaning cycle the Inteliair system has reduced the energy consumption of this extraction system by 62%. Suffice to say we are now in the process of installing the Inteliair system throughout their factory.
