Our Areas of Expertise
One of Our Strategic Partners has the expertise to dive down deep into the energies being consumed by various individual, industrial processes such as steel and aluminum production, refineries, agricultural processing (soybeans, flour, ethanol), distilleries, tire manufacturers, chemical companies, poultry-beef-pork processors, and a host of other food manufacturers. By utilizing software that can accept many data tag feeds from existing control and monitoring equipment and computers, a benchmark energy profile can be developed for each stage of an individual industrial process showing the energies that are being used versus the energies that “should be being used”. After these benchmarks are determined, work between our partner company and the operators of these processes can narrow down in over a series of 12 to 20 weeks procedures and operating characteristics that can be able to save an average of 30% of the energy being wasted. Capital investment can then be used, if desired, to reclaim the other 20% of the wasted energy. Most of the case histories we are familiar with are saving over a million dollars in energy costs per process per year with relatively little or no out-of-pocket costs to the industrial client.
Often called Co-generation, CHP can provide all or a portion of on site electric power & process heat at the same time. Because the efficiency of this process cycle is in the 90% range, which is twice the efficiency of electric utilities, electricity costs can be much lower while eliminating the natural gas process heating costs……Read More
There are billions of Btu’s per hour of heat energy that are being thrown away through “smokestacks” which translate to millions of dollars of potential natural gas purchased energy savings if much of this heat energy can be captured by way of heat recovery through specialized heat exchangers……Read More
In many larger industries, the air compressor system can amount to 20% to 30% of the total electrical kW load in the plant…..Read More
Examples are fans and pumps. If the speed or rpm’s of a pump or fan can be reduced to less than full load requirements, for every unit of speed reduction, the energy is reduced by the power of 3…..Read More
Ceramic coatings installed on boilers, pipes, tanks, walls, ovens and even metal or membrane roofs used in conjunction with world class rust preventatives will greatly reduce unwanted heat gain or heat loss. Ceramic coatings are available for application on a wide range of surface temperatures which can provide major savings on natural gas & electric energy costs…..Read More
