Optimization of energy consumption
Optimization of energy consumption is one of the main and effective tools to achieve sustainable development around the world. Optimization of energy consumption means choosing the right model and creating and using the right methods and policies in the production and consumption of energy, which in addition to ensuring continued economic growth, reduce the destruction of energy resources and reduce the negative effects of improper use of energy affects the environment and society.
On the other hand, many factors such as the global energy shortage crisis and limited energy resources due to its non-renewability, the use of fossil fuels that increase environmental pollution, high population growth and the need for more energy demand, High growth in energy consumption due to incorrect pattern of consumption, lack of energy recovery system, existence of worn-out industries and factories, dependence of the economies of countries with energy benefits on oil revenues and high energy costs in the production cycle and its negative impact on the world economy. It has forced energy policymakers to think of a way to meet the above challenges.
Matching consumption with needs:
The first and most important step in finding opportunities to save and optimize energy consumption is to match what is consumed with what is needed. Duration of use and time of use are key parameters.
Maximize energy efficiency:
The next step in optimizing energy consumption is to ensure that system components operate as efficiently as possible. At this stage, the effects of operating conditions, maintenance of facilities and equipment with the use of appropriate chemicals, major repairs, methods and technology are considered.
Improving energy supply conditions:
The first two steps reduce the need of energy. At this stage, the search for a suitable source or resources to meet energy needs is desired. The final step in determining savings opportunities is to consider how energy is supplied and to evaluate energy saving and management opportunities in this sector, which can be achieved by optimizing energy supply.
Sediment and energy loss:
Water deposition is one of the most important causes of energy loss. The issue of sediment formation on surfaces is one of the most important and costly problems that every industry faces, which increases the resistance to heat transfer between two fluids and causes corrosion in systems.
When water is used as a thermal fluid, the solutes and hardness in the water are separated by temperature shock and settle on the surfaces. These sediments are one of the most important causes of erosion and corrosion in thermal and refrigeration facilities.
In addition to erosion and corrosion of thermal equipment, the presence of sediments causes a significant amount of energy wasted, which due to lack of heat exchange, the efficiency of the facility is reduced.
The effect of sediment on energy loss is a topic that has received more attention today. Until 25 years ago, the problem of scale formation in heat exchangers was almost unsolvable, but now with careful planning in their maintenance and repair, this problem is somewhat manageable.
|country||Sediment energy loss costs (million dollars)||Net national production (billion dollars)||Ratio of sedimentation cost to gross national product%|
|New Zealand||64.5||43||0.15 %|
|The whole world||45029||22510||0.2 %|
Advantages of removing sediment in facilities to optimization of energy consumption:
- Reducing energy consumption
- Reducing depreciation and corrosion of facilities, pipes and metal pieces, pumps, etc.
- Save on the costs of acid washing and maintenance
- Reduce air pollution by reducing gas and electricity consumption
- Prevent contamination of groundwater resources (hundreds of thousands of liters of acid and thousands of tons of salt enter the facility annually to prevent sediment and then flow into water wells).
- Increasing the welfare of employees due to the creation of the desired temperature by the facilities
- Stable, clean and inexpensive method for descaling in facilities
Abrizan Industrial Research Co., with the aim of helping the development of industries as well as in preventing the energy losses of the country, followed by increased economic growth has been operating as one of the top knowledge-based companies and is always leading in the production of related technologies. Among the most important inventions and products of this company are, de-scalers, and anti-scaled, and corrosion, anti-biofouling, special de-scalers, and …which are available in all around the world for consumers.
