Optimizing Plant Energy Management to Increase Efficiency

When it comes to plant energy management, the ability to better monitor combustion air, fuel gas flow and compressed air can help identify losses that over short periods of time can affect profitability. Regardless of the scale of an operation, any improvements in efficiency to purchased fuel and electricity consumption drop directly to a company’s bottom line.

Vulnerabilities in Boiler and Steam Drum Level Control Technology

Technologies historically used for boiler and steam drum level control rely on inference or buoyancy to determine the level. This in itself leaves them vulnerable to process dynamics (specific gravity, pressure, temperature, etc.) or limits their ability to precisely manage the level for improved fuel economy.
