An energy audit is done to understand a building’s or facility’s energy usage and create a plan to optimize its efficiency.
Common problems like energy-consuming machines in an overloaded, oversized, and inefficient state cause the bill to reach the sky.
Overheating of motors and improper management of compressed air can also increase the load, but good energy conservation measures can avoid high costs and machine downtime. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the machine keep it in good condition, and it is checked for voltage imbalance.
Inefficient pumps also increase power consumption and have an adverse impact on the environment.
Energy Audit Services for Commercial and Industrial Facilities
Corporate sustainability is an important goal for many businesses. Energy efficiency is a key factor in reducing negative impacts on the environment and increasing profitability.
Energy audit experts can identify and measure energy inefficiencies to create cost-effective solutions tailored to your facility’s needs.
Energy saving areas
The energy-saving areas normally identified are:
- Management of compressed air
- Pump performance
- Furnace utilization and heat leakage
- Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
- Housekeeping measures
- Waste heat recovery
- Power factor and load factor improvement
- Heat loss analysis
- Boiler performance assessment
- Diesel usage analysis
- Demand management and load profiling
- Workplace lightings
- Usage of renewable energy and alternate fuels
- Optimal choice of fuel
- process optimization, etc.
Reduce your energy consumption by 10–20%.
A reduction of 10–20% in annual consumption can be achieved without affecting your productivity or targets because we know how important it is to get value for your investment.
Instruments used for an energy audit
Some of the instruments that are used for conducting an energy audit are as follows:
- Ultrasonic flow meter
An ultrasonic flow meter is a device that measures the flow of liquid or gas using ultrasound. Ultrasonic flow meters are used to measure the volumetric flow rate of liquids and gasses in pipelines, tanks, and other containers.
- Pressure gauges
A pressure gauge is a device that measures the pressure of a fluid, such as water, gas, or oil. The most common use of a pressure gauge is to measure the water pressure inside the pipe in industries.
- Power quality analyzer
A power quality analyzer is used to measure electric power signals to determine the load’s ability to function properly with that electric power. Without electric power, electrical equipment may fail prematurely or malfunction.
- Thermal imager
Thermal imagers are used for non-contact measurements of surface temperature. They work by detecting infrared energy emitted from objects, which is then converted into an image.
- Ultrasonic leak detector
An ultrasonic leak detector is a device that uses high-frequency sound waves to scan for leaks in pipes and other equipment. The device sends out a sound wave, which reflects off the surface of the pipe. The wave is then picked up by the detector and analyzed to determine if there is any leakage.
