The interactive Molykote energy savings calculator, from Dow Corning, is an online tool that can help plant managers and industrial maintenance engineers manage rising energy prices and carbon dioxide emissions by realizing the energy and cost savings available through lubrication and best practices. Designed for ease of use, users can enter into the calculator the number of motors, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and fans, the kilowatts needed to run them, their efficiency, and the hours per day and days per year they are used. The calculator then shows potential reductions in kilowatt hours, CO2 emissions and the associated cost savings. Visit www.dowcorning.com/content/molykote/EnergySavingsCalculator.aspx.
