Utility Watch By SII Dry Kilns
SII “Utility Watch” reduces power consumption and electricity costs by adjusting kiln fan speed during periods of peak energy demand.
Date Posted: 7/1/2013
“Utility Watch” is a new offering from SII Dry Kilns which allows the owner to dynamically adjust fan speeds during periods of peak energy demand, thus resulting in reduced power consumption and aggressively lowering electricity costs. When peak periods of demand have passed, normal operation is automatically restored.
Utility Watch can be prioritized by kiln, lowering airflow for designated kilns, while avoiding sensitive species that might suffer from reduced velocities. Realized cost savings have been dramatic.
Utility Watch can be added to most SII computerized control systems, contact your salesman at 800 545-6379 for further information.
MAKING IT WORK
“I was very impressed with the SII Utility Watch program. As soon as we delivered our utility signal to our new SII Control System it was working. The program is very easy to understand and adjust. It is exactly what we wanted!”
—Scott Ferland, Cersosimo Lumber, Brattleboro, VT
