Here’s how you can conserve energy in commonly used industrial equipment/applications:
Boilers: The motive of the industry should be to generate the required quantity and quality of steam at minimum cost. By measuring oxygen level in exhaust, Testo’s Flue Gas Analyser helps to adjust air to fuel ratio, thereby reducing & optimising fuel consumption and minimising energy costs. At the same time, it also restricts release of hazardous emission in the atmosphere.
Compressed Air: is used as a power source for various tools & equipment and accounts for a major share of the electricity. Even the smallest leakage points waste energy and money. Testo’s Compressed air flow meter measures the consumption of compressed air and detects such leakages and helps optimize its consumption across different sections of the plant. At the same time, Testo’s Dew Point Transmitter keeps a check on the moisture present in the compressed air.
HVAC & Refrigeration: An air conditioning and a refrigeration plant are efficient when all its system components are monitored, serviced and maintained well. Testo’s all-rounder HVAC analysis instrument 480 monitors ambient climate conditions – in offices, malls, hospitals, etc. and serves an important role in energy optimization and savings. Testo also offers complete refrigeration efficiency monitoring solutions from digital manifolds to refrigerant leak detectors.
Electric Motors: Of the total electricity consumed in the industrial sector, electric motors account for approximately 70%. Electricity consumption in these motors can be reduced if the cooling is improved and are regularly maintained. Testo’s thermal imager identifies areas of overheating and prevents further energy losses.
Diesel Engine: Exhaust analysis of a diesel engine directly points to two benefits: 1. Complete combustion of fuel thereby fuel saving and 2. Achieving its optimum efficiency i.e the working point of the engine.
