Smart scale energy solutions for heating systems

Constant monitoring of the heat system cools down energy costs

There are a huge range of industry specific heating processes and technologies which require individual approach and measures to evaluate and improve system performance. Boilers and fired heaters are typically large sources of energy loss due to inefficient combustion, improper operation, and poor maintenance. The simplest way of evaluating such losses is efficiency measurement.

Heating system efficiency

By monitoring parameters like fuel flow, combustion air, flue gas temperature or thermal energy transfer rate the efficiency of heat production can be evaluated to:

  • Identify, quantify and allocate losses in the system, e.g. due to idle or part load operation of the burner

  • Benchmark boilers, consumers and optimize their use

  • Minimize maintenance cost and downtimes

  • Quantify measures such as preheating of combustion air

Specific energy consumption

The allocation of energy usage to specific areas and processes is one of the key factors for energy management systems (e.g. ISO 50001) and precondition for transparent bookkeeping .The exact measurement of heating energy consumption per product unit or per m³ and year is also essential to assess the system efficiency and helpful to optimize production processes. The loads that significantly affect costs can be highlighted. Furthermore the data are suitable for a carbon footprint evaluation.

Large sources of energy loss

Process heating systems include combustion systems that run on fossil fuels and biomass; electric systems, exchange and recovery systems. By monitoring these components and the system performance significant energy savings are possible.
Define the right KPIs which help you to evaluate:

  • Heating system efficiency,

  • Specific energy consumption

This is the precondition for energy management and cost reduction.
