Steps & Process

Steps & Process

1- Evaluation

We need contact information for either plant engineers, operators, maintenance supervisors, or personnel for us to walk them through a questionnaire that will give us basic and intrinsic information on the refrigeration equipment to accomplish an Energy Study. The study will identify the potential dollar and cents savings the Hench Energy Management System will provide.

2- Proposal
Upon completion of the Energy Study, we will provide it along with a proposal for a turn-key installation. With multiple facilities, the system unifies performance, benchmarks savings and standardizes management, while holding the individual facilities accountable to maintaining efficient and productive stand alone operations, allowing you to compare apples to apples between your assets.

3- Technical Visit
Upon approval and acceptance  of the proposals,  we send out an engineer  to do a physical scope of the facility, study the process in which you do your cooling/blast freezing etc., determine the levei of acceptable interruption, recognize the possibility of a wireless installation for minimal interruption and cost and designate a timeline for completion.

4- Electrical Diagrams
The engineered scope is translated to an electrical diagram which we organize and manage the electrical installation.

5- lnstallation
The Hench field technical specialist visits the facility to perform a full scope of the operation. The technical knowledge of the field specialist in equipment, refrigeration and energy management are mission criticai to ensure that specifications and wiring are done correctly so installations are designed accurately and executed efficiently. After verifying all of the necessary specifications, the circuit boards, their cabinets, and software are set up to match the client’s specific refrigeration The total system is physically sent to the client where it is then installed via hard wiring or wirelessly, which connects the motors and valves of the refrigeration plant to the Hench hardware. Once the connection is complete, the system and client are ready for start-up and training. The sarne field technical specialist returns to the client site to ensure that start-up and orientation occur and then  moving forward,  the our central call center handles all potential future technical issues eliminating the need for the operator to be an expert of the system.

6- Monitoring & Commissioning
Upon completion of the installation, we do a hands-on start-up, operator training, and monitor the system on a continuous basis to verify your system’s performance has been proven to meet or exceed the projected energy savings from the Energy Study

7- Analyze Savings
The monitoring yields a written report, on a weekly basis, analyzing the savings in addition to sustaining a preventative maintenance program, assuming the back up to the alarm system and personnel along with a complete trending of every room, hour and situation and maintain a system backup on secure servers with historical data.
