Energy Consumption Auditing
If you suspect that your energy efficiency and thermal process control are not what they should be, a Tranter Service Center team can pinpoint the causes with an on-site Heat Exchanger Audit.
Here is what they do:
- Collect or measure operating data for each of your heat exchangers
- Compare this with your design process data
- Note any variances
- Investigate causes of variances, ranging from capacity/throughput changes, control issues, misapplied exchangers to maintenance needs
- Recommend remedies to bring performance to best practices efficiency and control
If exchanger misapplication or maintenance needs are indicated as causes, the Tranter team will provide you with an alternate exchanger configuration that will resolve the issue, or a cost-efficient PM Service Program to address maintenance issues.
