Ecogate® - Perfect Fit for Utopia

Utopia Bathroom Group, the UK's leader in fitted bathroom furniture, has slashed its electricity bills by investing in Ecogate's energy-saving dust extraction technology at its manufacturing centre in Bilston, West Midlands. Utopia commissioned authorised installer Dust Control Systems Ltd (DCS) to carry out the work.

  • The new system replaced two large-capacity drag chain filters and a total of eleven main fans ranging from 11kW to 75kW that previously ran all day, 7 days a week.
  • Our team installed an Ecogate® 'extraction-on-demand' system, delivering annual savings of around 450,000 kilowatt hours (kWh)
  • It features eleven Ecogate Power MASTER® variable speed drive units, each with an integral Ecogate greenBOX® 12+ controller, and a total of twenty six motorised Ecogate damper gates, which automatically open and close as machines come on or off line
  • Utopia enjoyed further financial savings thanks to the Carbon Trust assessed-installation qualifying for Green Equipment Finance through Siemens (SFS Ltd).

"Installing Ecogate® made sound business sense. Analysis of the system data produced staggering results – total savings were way ahead of original predictions, and equated to annual savings of 700,000 kWh. Ecogate® is a remarkable system which, as well as saving energy, has also increased the efficiency of the extraction system. And, Ecogate’s engineers installed and commissioned the complete system to schedule, over a two week period, with no interruption to production."
