Abstract:The Harris Broadcast Communication Division (BCD), located in Quincy, Illinois, manufactures radio and television transmitters including High Definition TV and High Definition Radio. Harris Corporation and its employees are dedicated to conducting business as stewards of the environment. As environmental stewards, Harris was interested in conserving water in their parts cleaning and coating operation. After collecting baseline data on water usage and conductivity levels in Harris' rinse tanks, ISTC engineers determined that installing a conductivity controller would help the company decrease their water use. The project saved the company 1,504,439 gallons of water and reduced their operating costs by $8,575 annually. In addition, the company reduced its carbon footprint by 3,381 pounds of CO2/year.
