Commercial, Industrial and Manufacturing Insulation
To date thousands of m2 of roofing has been protected in Japan alone using Super Therm® for such companies as Canon, Hitachi, Kirin Brewery, Matsushita, Mitsubishi, Sony, Sumitomo to name a few.
Sony reduced kW by 86% with a 13 month payback
Sony Engineering group conducted field studies at the Koda factory and determined that the kW usage was reduced from:
- 3,764 kW in May 1994 to
- 519 kW in May 1995
- A reduction of 3,248 kW or 86%
- 5,647 kW in June 1994 to
- 1,869 kW in June 1995
- A reduction of 3,778 kW or 56%
This resulted in a payback of 13 months!
As a consequence Super Therm® was specified on their new 700,000 square foot facility in Malaysia.
Super Therm® was applied on a manufacturing facility in Kansas that was experiencing a great deal of difficulty in cooling various unconditioned buildings of the factory due to variance in size and significant volume. The results were an immediate reduction by 12°F on the lower levels, with an even greater reduction to the attic storage and overhead work zones on the second story. This temperature reduction enabled the facility to utilise simple ceiling fans for cooling during the summer months, and thereby lowering the overall expense of energy.
