The Tinytag Energy Logger records electricity consumption in industrial premises, and can be an important tool in finding out where energy is used. The results can help to improve energy performance and cost savings.
Regular monitoring with the Tinytag
Energy Data Logger has proved effective for European Freeze
Dry, a leading multi-product freeze drying facility and speciality
freeze drying services provider. As part of its overall energy
efficiency scheme, European Freeze Dry monitors the energy
consumption of all plant and equipment at its site. Irmina Wdowka,
a maintenance engineer at European Freeze Dry, uses the energy
logger as an important tool in discovering where energy is used.
With this information, areas where energy efficiency can be
improved can be targeted and information can be gained about how
operators use equipment. This presents an opportunity to improve
operations, again leading to increased efficiency.
The energy logger is used in 24 hour periods on equipment such
as vacuum pumps, vacuum boosters, air compressors, pumps etc. The
recorded data is analyzed to identify areas where usage or loading
of equipment can be reduced. Where modifications to systems or
practices are implemented the equipment will then be monitored
again to quantify savings and efficiencies.
Irmina comments "We choose the energy
logger as it is easy to use, has all our required options and
enough memory space. It meets all our predicted requirements. We
are very pleased with its operation: it performs well at our site
and has greatly assisted in our overall efficiency scheme."
