Project Details

Project Name: Energy Conservation Survey
Country: Mexico
Description: An Energy Conservation Survey for was performed. The total estimated annualized savings opportunities identified during the survey totaled $265,200. The following primary opportunities were identified and may be accomplished through utilization of plant maintenance resources: • Reduction of compressed air leaks; • Elimination of third boiler idling; • Reduction of steam leaks; • Reduction of steam trap failures • Performance of electrical rate analysis; • Elimination of energized idle equipment; and • Implementation of an energy conservation program. The following additional opportunities were identified which will require capital investment: • Installation of meters on boilers; • Installation of ductwork to capture boiler combustion air from ceiling; • Installation of automatic blow down control; • Installation of blow down heat recovery; • Improvement to condensate return fraction to boiler; • Insulation of exposed steam pipes; • Implementation of tenter exhaust humidity control; • Modification of lighting; • Modification of hot water system; and • Implementation of data management and system optimization. The energy survey included a comprehensive review of the utilities supplied to the plant as well as a review of the major processes. The Client's plant was a dyeing and finishing facility. The primary equipment included dye jets, tenter frames, dryers, and inspection frames. Energy utilization for the plant included natural gas, steam, compressed air, water, and electricity. The review of energy opportunities included a compressed air generation and distribution system evaluation, steam generation and distribution systems evaluation, hot water system evaluation, lighting evaluation, and a plant walk-through to identify other energy saving opportunities.
