Vat Enerji General Manager Altuğ Karataş pointed out that the most expensive energy is compressed air and said that industrial facilities can have a significant opportunity to save with the Observer Energy Monitoring and Management System.
Stating that industrial facilities must absolutely monitor and manage their energies in order to ensure energy efficiency, Vat Energy General Manager Altuğ Karataş said, “You cannot manage what you do not monitor and measure. "Industrial facilities can achieve this with the Observer Energy Monitoring and Management System if they want to monitor, manage and control their compressed air."
SAVING UP TO 50 PERCENT
Stating that it is possible to save up to 50 percent by monitoring and managing compressed air, Karataş said, “The most expensive energy is compressed air. It is important for industrial facilities to constantly control their compressed air costs and to continuously monitor how much energy they spend per cubic meter of compressed air in order to save energy. Industrial facilities that know the compressed air costs can determine both the efficiency of compressed air compressors and the loss and leakage rates. In addition, the savings to be obtained by using the waste heat of compressed air compressors as energy can be determined by observer. In addition, they can monitor how much carbon emission it prevents, how much heat it resists, and the amount of natural gas savings achieved with the Observer Energy Monitoring System, ”he said.
"MOST OF COMPRESSED AIR COMPRESSORS ARE INFLUENTIAL"
Many of the compressed air compressor in energy studies carried out in Turkey is seen as inefficient. It is understood that unit compressed air costs are produced at 30 to 50 percent higher cost than efficient systems. These data, which will be obtained with the energy monitoring and management system observer, actually reveal that a savings higher than the cost to be given to the energy monitoring system can be achieved.
"ALL POINTS WHERE ENERGY IS CONSUMED ARE MEASURED"
When Observer Energy Monitoring and Management System is taken to industrial facilities for compressed air, all energy related parameters of the facility such as steam, electricity, lighting, general energy consumption and energy density calculation are taken at the same time with its sub-modules. In addition, there is an infrastructure in Observer where compressed air, heating, cooling and electricity costs per unit product can be calculated. Therefore, with the Observer Energy Monitoring and Management System, it is a system that should be used for facilities that want to monitor, see and manage how much cost from which type of energy per unit product.
With Observer Energy Monitoring System;
- Compressed air cost,
- Compressed air flow rate,
- The power spent in compressed air production,
- You can measure many values such as humidity, dryness and quality of Compressed Air.
Observer Energy Monitoring and Management Program will consider one cubic meter of air as a product and determine how much this product is costed.
