Eaton Provides Critical Audits for Wastewater Treatment Facilities

PITTSBURGH … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced it will provide its Engineering Service and Solutions (EESS) audits for water customers, based on purchases of aftermarket products. Water and wastewater customers are eligible to receive complimentary EESS studies based on qualifying aftermarket purchases made between March 1 and October 1, 2008. The EESS audit must be redeemed by December 31, 2008.

An EESS audit can diagnose problems, identify ways to improve performance, or transform concepts into flexible, practical solutions that can improve productivity and capital utilization. Eaton’s capabilities include safety studies, energy management audits, and power quality and reliability audits.

“In a period of shrinking budgets and resources, this program can create significant advantages for customers purchasing aftermarket products,” said Nathan Judd, Eaton’s industry manager for Wastewater.

Water and wastewater facilities may qualify, based on their aftermarket spending, for the EESS audit when they purchase qualifying products, including: Motor Control Center (MCC) buckets, Low Voltage Assembly (LVA) breakers, Medium Voltage Control Units (MVC) units, and Medium Voltage Assembly (MVA) breakers, new variable frequency drives and IT soft-starters, and EESS rebuilt switchgear units. Actual award levels vary, based on purchases, from a one-day service audit and report to a week audit and accompanying report.
