In an earlier post, Identifying Components then Optimizing Industrial Energy Consumption, we discussed how energy optimization initiatives were affected by what could be measured. Emerson’s Jonas Berge added a great comment to that post, which I will share here to bring it greater visibility. Running fans at excess speed, failed steam traps, fouling, inefficient combustion, […]

As energy prices slowly creep higher from earlier lows, the need for managing energy usage remains constant for most process manufacturers and producers. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy-Intensive Process Portfolio list processes in the refining, petrochemicals, chemicals, plastics metals, pulp & paper as large energy consumers. In an earlier post, Identifying Components then Optimizing […]

When optimizing operating costs at a production facility, the bias is toward that which can be measured. For example, the cost of chemicals additives for a process is something easily measured based upon the amount consumed. For components such as the energy to produce steam, the costs may not be so clear. Emerson’s Barbara Hamilton […]

Last week, we highlighted how energy savings could be achieved through better combustion. Today, let’s look at a way to manage energy consumption throughout a plant or production facility. In this 3:39 video, Energy Advisor from Emerson, Real-Time Energy Monitoring, Emerson’s Barbara Hamilton describes ways to uncover, realize, and document energy efficiency opportunities through the […]
