Analysis Of Energy Uses And Opportunities To Reduce Consumption And Cost

[Full Text]



Talal M. Sh. A. Alotaibi





This Energy Assessment study is the result of a process involving a significant effort by a team of people at the plant and the Facilities Engineering Energy assessment team from Round Lake. Other specialists within Global Facilities Engineering have reviewed the report and contributed their experience in evaluating some of the energy saving opportunities. The plant manufactures renal therapy bags along with IV nutrition products. The plantís major manufacturing equipment includes 5 filling lines, 11 mix tanks, 16 sterilization vessels and 5 Packaging lines. This study approach has identified potential energy and cost saving opportunities that conducted for compressed air system at the facility that are: Energy savings for implementing Lower Compressed Air Pressure and improve the compressors controls are 117,701kWh/year and $17,493.The savings for reducing the leak rate from 30% to 20% are 144,410kWh/year and $21,413/year. The estimated savings for installing these accessories in the packing robots are 26,850 kWh/year and $3,991/year. The estimated savings for Stop bleeds during cooling are 181,621kWh/year and $26,993/year.
