“Company executives estimate that the solution will reduce energy costs by improving overall process efficiency by as much as 10%”
In today’s economy, energy efficiency—or, more accurately, the lack of it—is a hotly debated topic that incites passions in companies and consumers alike. Despite this high profile, one point that often evades the spotlight is the amount of energy required actually to produce the world’s electricity supplies.
Those who generate the power, however, are acutely aware. They know that to control costs and preserve the quality and value of their product, the processes for generating and distributing energy must be as efficient and streamlined as possible.
To improve the efficiency and profitability of its operation, one major European electricity provider, our client deployed a solution centred on our Eurotherm proven EPower controller technology.
The EPower controller was installed on a heat-treatment furnace site.
In this application, EPower manages the heating elements and regulates power input across the combustion process, combining improved communications and data accuracy with real-time networking and load analysis.
The EPower controller sends live furnace load and network data directly to the control room, enabling operators to modify their process strategy immediately in accordance with the incoming data feed.
Changes made to the control type, firing mode and load configuration all facilitate improved process efficiency.
