We Teach Existing Technology To Do New Tricks
Another company, in the business of cleaning wastewater filtration membranes, needed a solution to alert their clients when a membrane was due for cleaning. We created a device to measure changes in flow rates and send a notice when pressure differentials across the membrane reached a predetermined ratio. The cleaning company then offered this device for sale to their clients. Cleaning calls became more frequent. The clients, meanwhile, enjoyed reduced energy costs — their pumps strained less often to push water through dirty filters — while extending the service life of filters costing upwards of $70,000.
For another customer, we developed a solution to automatically activate firehouse ventilation blowers whenever a fire truck engine started up. The finished system incorporated a thermostat, smoke sensor and toxic gas sensor along with a simple hardware store garage door opener wired into the control device. During abnormal or emergency conditions, the same system could turn on lights, sound horns and send email or text alerts to emergency responders.
All in all, we’ve had a hand in developing some pretty nifty products.
