In response to ever
increasing energy prices, several years ago JCS began to focus on energy
reduction techniques for refrigerated and air conditioned facilities.
Progressing from simple
no-cost adjustments to system modifications requiring variable speed
drives or thermal storage add-ons, we found it relatively easy to
increase the efficiency of conventional industrial class refrigeration
systems from 10 to 25%. In many instances power company incentives
helped with capital expense making it possible to amortize the upgrades
in about 12 to 24 months.
In projects ranging from
Retail Grocery to Production Manufacturing, the common thread to
attaining our lower energy targets was a reliable cost-effective
control system capable of handling the variables involved, and capable
of providing a friendly user interface and remote reset and monitoring
CPC Controllers & Ice Skating
controller by Emerson is currently in use by thousands of retail
establishments across the U.S. It is a microprocessor-based control
system that provides complete control of compressors, condensers,
evaporator terminals, and other components related to refrigeration and
Eight years ago, JCS applied a CPC controller to a local Ice Skating
Rink having 250 connected compressor horsepower. Via the application of
programs developed by JCS, compressor and condenser power requirements
were reduced, and the owner obtained a 25% reduction in his annual power
bills. Since that time, the system has been expanded to include control
of building A/C, dehumidification, lighting, and total building demand.
expansion has resulted in power savings as projected, and this control
system was put into two other local rinks.
Today, JCS has CPC controllers providing energy savings in six rinks
from New York to Texas, plus controllers in several local industrial
facilities controlling process systems. We can monitor these systems
from our computer in Phoenix. We receive alarms should conditions
exceed our alarm limits, and we can remotely reset controller set-points
to keep systems running smoothly.
We have a
time tested and field proven approach to achieving energy savings for
skating rinks and processing facilities. To make such savings
attainable, we offer this control system on a Lease Plan.

conditioning savings potential.... give us a call.
