Is the Operation of Your Dust/Fume Collection System Truly Energy Efficient?

It’s one thing to control/capture your dirty air from manufacturing processes, it’s another to do it intelligently! Modern industrial dust and fume collection systems typically lack the controls and monitoring needed to be truly energy efficient. 

The webinar will start off by reviewing a typical block diagram and energy cost associated with today’s collection systems. We will then describe some of today’s technology advancement associated with operating high-performance industrial fume and dust collection system. The webinar will conclude with a review of case studies that highlight potential energy reduction opportunities associated with improvements to include VFDs, blast gates, and intelligent controls. 

What you’ll learn:

1. Estimate the energy cost associated with a typical dust and fume collection system

2. Recognize and address typical problems and maintenance issues associated with these systems

3. Identify elements of a high-performance dust and fume collection system

4. Describe potential energy reduction opportunities

The impact of Energy Efficiency measures on the National Energy Supply Chain

This presentation aims to draw the attention of policymakers internationally to a strategy for alleviating global warming through proven cost-effective energy efficiency measures. The Saudi Arabian government has embraced the approach with demonstrable success over the past 20 years, with rates of return on investments averaging more than 25%. Even though Saudi Aramco is the National Oil and Gas company, the company takes the threat of climate change to the world’s economies very seriously and initiated programs for, systematically and responsibly, transitioning to less-polluting energy sources. Primarily, the chapter will define the supply chain components of Saudi Arabia’s energy sector and explain each component’s existing conditions and efficiencies. It analyzes the existing energy management framework and its achievements, as well as its current and forthcoming commitments, status, and updates. It will also explain the vital equipment, systems, and processes in the supply chain, with possible energy efficiency improvement gaps based on existing literature/Energy Assessment Reports conducted by Saudi Aramco professionals in numerous industrial facilities. The chapter will pinpoint the highest achievable efficiencies areas in major systems, processes, or equipment and discusses its impact on the primary energy fuels and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction.

Decarbonization and Electrification with Modular Multipurpose Chillers

As the world moves towards electrification and decarbonization, producing hot water for space heating and domestic hot water are key components to this strategy.  In this session you will understand the benefits of water-based systems, water-heating terminology, including the pump strategies and sizing.  We will also dive into multipurpose chillers and the benefits associated with modularity, design flexibility, and applications. 

Michael Medlock is an Application Engineer who joined the WaterFurnace team in an acquisition of a chiller company 2014.  With 15 years of chiller experience that focuses on system level operation and energy distribution, he brings a comprehensive prospective to multipurpose chiller designs and applications.
