The Helios Advantage: Exceptional Ratio of Savings and Cost of Operations

For the Helios Tube Cleaning System, the cost of operations is very low when compared to the cost savings the system provides. Specifically, the Helios Cost of Operations average just 4% (Under 3% for chillers over 3,000 tons) of the cost savings/avoidance offered by the system….

How much does the Helios cost to operate?

One of the key questions asked by managers is “How much does the Helios cost to operate”? To offer a precise answer we consider the following variables:

  • Electricity Cost: Basis for pump skid operation cost and chiller energy savings.
  • Chiller Specifications: Size, make, model, tube size, pass numbers, tube count.
  • Cleaning Ball Cost: Frequency of change based on chiller run hours.
  • Maintenance Rates: Standard rates and frequency for Helios system maintenance.
  • Parts Replacement Rate: Based on install base historical data.
  • Manual Cleaning Costs: Reduction in manual cleaning due to Helios.

For the Helios Tube Cleaning System, the cost of operations is very low when compared to the cost savings the system provides. Specifically, the Helios Cost of Operations average just 4% (Under 3% for chillers over 3,000 tons) of the cost savings/avoidance offered by the system.

To put this into perspective, if the Helios saves $10.00 in energy savings during an hour of runtime, its cost to operate is only $0.40 for that hour. This means that 96% of the savings are retained translating into an exceptional savings-to-cost ratio, making the Helios Tube Cleaning System an incredibly efficient and cost-effective solution.

Understanding the Variables

  1. Electricity Cost: The Helios system’s primary operational cost is the electricity required to run the pump skid. However, the energy savings from maintaining optimal chiller performance significantly outweigh these costs.
  2. Chiller Specifications: Different chillers have varying specifications such as size, make, model, tube size, number of passes, and tube count. These factors influence the energy efficiency and the savings generated by the Helios system.
  3. Cleaning Ball Cost: The cleaning balls used by the Helios system are durable and designed to last through many cleaning cycles. The frequency of replacement is based on chiller run hours, ensuring minimal costs.
  4. Maintenance Rates: Helios systems require minimal maintenance. Standard rates and scheduled maintenance ensure the system runs efficiently without incurring high costs.
  5. Parts Replacement Rate: Based on extensive data from a large install base, the parts replacement rate is low, further reducing operational costs.
  6. Manual Cleaning Costs: One of the most significant cost savings comes from the reduction in manual cleaning requirements. The Helios system automates tube cleaning, reducing the need for labor-intensive manual cleaning and associated downtime.

Exceptional Savings

The Helios Tube Cleaning System stands out not just for its innovative technology but also for its exceptional ratio of savings to cost of operations. By maintaining chiller efficiency and reducing energy consumption, the Helios system offers a compelling return on investment. Managers looking to optimize their cooling systems will find the Helios system to be a cost-effective, efficient, and reliable solution.
