Smart Factory Transformation
In 2019, Everactive was engaged by a global food & beverage manufacturer that generates more than $35 billion in annual revenue to help modernize one of its newest plants in Topeka, Kansas. Within 3 months, continuous steam trap monitoring delivered 7x ROI.
The Hershey Company
At one Hershey’s chocolate manufacturing plant, when Maintenance Manager Phil Reynolds suspected that the plant’s steam system was not operating as efficiently as it could be, he began to explore options to monitor the health of the plant’s steam traps.
In 2020, Trinity Manufacturing, a premier manufacturer of specialty agriculture and water treatment chemicals, engaged Everactive to help deliver on its safety, sustainability, and operational cost savings goals. After one year, always-on steam trap monitoring yields 2.9x return with substantial reduction of CO2 emissions and energy usage.
“It is becoming much less attractive to have a specialist come onsite to physically walk around and give you that once-a-month snapshot of what’s going on. With Everactive’s Machine Health Monitoring solution, facilities that may have never had a vibration program or predictive maintenance program can now get one up and running in a day.”
