LabSYNC Point W-4

Problems:Water is often used to cool solvent distillations or the condensers in icemakers, etc. Be sure they are not running continuously, and there may be more efficient techniques. If left on for several hours per day at 0.2 lpm, over 50,000 liters per year of drinking water may be wasted in one lab.The water and energy loss can be reduced with timers on continuous or critical water use.

Solution:The water and energy loss can be reduced with timers on continuous or critical water use.

Benefits:Each lab with continuous flowing process water may save tens of thousands of gallons of water each year.

Costs: None.
