Project Details

Project Name: Energy Conservation Survey
Country: Puerto Rico
Description: An Energy Conservation Survey was performed in two separate plants. The total estimated annualized savings opportunities identified during the survey totaled $192,550. The review of energy opportunities included a compressed air generation and distribution system evaluation, steam generation and distribution system evaluation, HVAC evaluation, lighting evaluation, and a plant walk-through to identify other energy saving opportunities. The following primary opportunities were identified at one of the Client's Plant and may be accomplished through utilization of plant maintenance resources: • Reduction of compressed air leaks; • Elimination of compressed air blow-off solenoid; • Repair of blow down heat recovery; • Valve off idle boiler from header; • Reduction of steam leaks; • Reduction of vacuum leaks; • Evaluation of yarn conditioning area; • Separation of conditioned areas from non-conditioned areas; • Elimination of energized idle equipment; • Elimination of lighting; and • Development of a lighting plan. The following additional opportunities were identified which will require capital investment: • Modification of compressed air distribution lines to prevent moisture; • Improvement of metering in boiler house; • Installation of automatic blow down control; • Increase condensate recovery; • Elimination of boiler cycling; • Installation of boiler economizer; • Route combustion air from ceiling; • Insulation of exposed steam pipes; • Modification of steam trap insulation to allow trap access; • Route vacuum air to make-up of HVAC system; • Installation of waste water heat recovery; and • Modification of lighting.
