Original Press Release:

Every Multiple Compressor System Can Save With a $mart Sequencer

When it comes to saving energy one company stands out...Scales Industrial Technologies.

West Paterson, NJ, -- January 13, 2009 - Scales Industrial Technologies, the leading provider of industrial air compressors, cooling systems, and medical compressed air and vacuum in the Northeast, is proud to offer the latest version of our patented $mart Sequencer® Controller. The $mart Sequencer controls compressors so that they operate at their peak efficiency and in the right sequence. Our nation's focus on energy saving measures, particularly when combined with the current economic climate, makes the $mart Sequencer a sensible choice for reducing your plant's energy usage and cost.

Each $mart Sequencer® system comes pre-programmed with information unique to your compressed air system. Information such as individual compressor capacities, types of compressors and plant operating pressure set points are stored. The $mart Sequencer® will continuously monitor plant compressed air pressure and demand.

By combining the monitored data with the data stored in memory, the system will ensure the minimum power is being consumed to meet your plant's compressed air demand. When there is excess capacity on line, the $mart Sequencer® knows what compressor to operate at part load and which compressor to turn off and place in automatic stand-by mode. Maintenance and repair costs will be reduces by running only the compressors necessary to meet varying production demands.

One $mart Sequencer® can control as many compressors as necessary, up to 1 1/2 miles apart.

Additional Benefits
