Steam Shower Installation
The high temperatures in the steam piping system allow the insulation to be very cost-efficient. In practice the boiler shell is usually insulated, however, the boiler face, piping, valves and flanges are often not insulated.
By insulating the steam- and condensation pipes and attached equipment, considerable energy savings can be achieved. iii aaa
Some examples are listed below.
• The radiation loss from the boiler amounts to about 1% of the whole installation’s capacity. The heat loss from a boiler face corresponds to 500m3 of natural gas (or 1 500 Kg coal). You can read this article Installing Overhead Moving Rail With Stirrer In Colour Kitchen
• An annual loss of energy from non-insulated valves (DN 100, 10 bar) can amount to 1 500 m3 natural gas (4 500 kg coal), when the valves are open to an insulated room and about 4 500 m3 (or 13 500 kg coal) when open to a non-insulated room. An energy loss from a non-insulated valve is approximately the same from a 2m non-insulated pipe. The energy loss is proportionate the length of piping and the thickness of the insulation. Energy loss from a poorly insulated pipe can amount to 5 – 10%.
Insulate the Steam Shower Installation parts wherever steam energy is utilized.
The return of investment can vary between months to a few years depending on the extent of insulation.
Measuring the chemicals use efficiency
Implementing measures to reduce chemical consumption, especially reducing or substituting the most hazardous chemicals, will reduce your company’s impacts on the environment and improve health and safety conditions for the employees.
Next to the working time of employees involved in the project, no extra costs are associated with this option. The measure will help you to identify “low-hanging” improvement options, which can be realised at a low cost and bring large reductions of your environmental impacts. Financial gains are likely to occur on the reduction of chemical needs and of chemical waste treatment costs.
After analysing Steam Shower Installation chemical use, one company substituted the kerosene and non-ionic detergents used in the printing process by acrylic thickeners. It then reduced toxic vapour emissions and risks and improved the work environment while saving 1,4 USD/100 kg of printing paste.
For comparability reasons make sure to use the same time-period (e.g. one fiscal year) for all processes. In case you are do not have the information and/or cannot collect it, try to fill out the table based on estimates. In this case, mention in the comments line that the figures are estimates.
To benchmark your performance and see your improvements, use a “chemical consumption per unit” ratio. The “unit” should be the unit of production that is most useful for you. Examples could be “kg or m2 of product” or “1 000 units of product” (e.g. my company use X kg of dye to produce 1 000 m2 of fabrics). You can also use a ratio based on chemical costs per unit.
The option 41: Write instructions for safe and efficient chemical use may also be an interesting option to help improving your chemical use. A better handling of chemicals will help you to use your chemicals in a more efficient way and reduce risks
