This week, my team just completed a successful Energy Saving project for a Beverage factory, in eliminating this Artificial Demand loss, achieving a measured power saving of 11.3% (Energy Saving !).
Most importantly, this 11.3% will give an estimated saving of RM 141,0000 per annum (USD 35k ), giving an ROI of 1.06 years !
For my 20 years professional journey in assisting factory operator to achieve Energy Saving for Compressed Air System, I am amazed by the lack of awareness about “Artificial Demand”.
Artificial Demand is Wastage losses produced ( i use the word “produce” because it is always the user’s action that cause it) when the Compressed Air System is supplied at HIGHER PRESSURE LEVEL THAN REQUIRED BY THE PRODUCTION !
It is common knowledge of the rules of thumb : 1 bar in pressure higher will resulted 7% higher in energy cost.
So, when you are operating your compressor at a pressure higher than you desire, you are draining your company profit away. Take action now, help your company to fight the financial losses caused by the Covid19 Crisis.0January 14, 2021 at 5:53 pm #firstname.lastname@example.orgParticipant
