General Fabrications Corp. will showcase standard energy- and cost-savings features of its finishing systems at FABTECH 2018, including variable frequency drives for its washer pumps coupled with pressure transducers for the changing of spray pressure. By running the pump motors at a lower hertz to achieve the required pressure, users can save electrical usage, the company says.

The company also will highlight its high-efficiency gas-fired burners and the higher-density mineral wool insulation it uses in its oven panels, which helps contain oven heat, resulting in less gas usage.
