Facilities meeting one or more of the following criteria may benefit from this opportunity.
- Freeze tunnels are defrosted multiple times a day.
Freeze tunnels are shut down and defrosted for sanitary purposes. If the defrost water was at a higher temperature, the freeze tunnel would defrost faster, reducing downtime. This will allow for a longer production time, along with reducing annual water costs. The incoming water can be heated using direct steam injection. This will increase annual steam usage but the added income from the productivity increase will be much greater than added steam cost.
These templates are excel based spreadsheets that quickly and easily help users quantify energy savings, cost savings, implementation costs, and payback. The excel spreadsheets then automatically write a professional looking report for users to utilize as they see fit.
