Although healthcare is a business, it’s a special kind of business that combines technology and innovation with the sole purpose of helping people. It’s an industry that uses a myriad of expensive and complicated equipment to find the answers, and to save lives. The more reliable and efficient the equipment, the more focus and energy can be given to the patients.
Here’s 6 ways energy efficient process chillers contribute to the bottom line in healthcare, improving patient care:
1. The greater the efficiency, the lower the operating cost per scan.
Process chillers normally use a good amount of electricity, especially for processes that are being performed often, like medical imaging. If the equipment is being cooled by a high-efficiency process chiller, the hospital will spend less on their power bill, which allows them to allocate those funds elsewhere.
2. The ability to remotely access the chiller reduces overhead costs and technician labor.
Being able to remotely monitor the chiller and access the controls means that the facility managers can do maintenance or make changes without having to be in front of the machine, saving them time and hospital money.
3. Chillers that perform self-diagnostics can warn of potential problems before they happen.
Self-diagnostics and remote alarming put the process chiller on the technician’s team, helping to alert them of any problems that could cause malfunction or shut down.
4. Fully scalable chillers assure that the energy consumption matches the specific equipment needs.
Standard process chillers always apply the same amount of cooling, regardless of the actual needs of the process. With Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) pump and compressor control, these high-efficiency machines are customizable for various medical equipment needs.
5. Process-driven energy consumption and self-diagnostics result in less wear and tear.
Wear and tear is something that everyone hates, because it results in money spent repairing and replacing equipment. With significantly reduced wear and tear, high-efficiency process chillers last longer and cost much less to maintain, allowing the medical equipment they service to be available for their important jobs.
6. ROI is greater, which is the bottom line.
With better overall reliability and efficiency, the return on investment is going to be higher, and the machine will pay for itself more quickly.
