A study of the vacuum pumps and/or blowers to identify problem areas
A study of pressure and bleed losses to analyse energy consumption and to evaluate if the vacuum levels are too high
A review of the dewatering elements (flat boxes, save-all pans, uhle boxes)
A calculation of energy savings based on EP speed control technology. Recommendations and proposals based on the calculation included
A proposal how the dewatering rate can be monitored and what savings/speed increase a possible doctoring upgrade can realize
Designing of the new pipeline connection diagrams including engineering and drawings
We can also provide specifications of the new vacuum pumps if needed. This audit may also include dewatering analysis and reporting.
After the audit and comprehensive discussions with the customer, we provide a complete written report summarizing necessary actions for production optimization.
Desktop vacuum audit
Do you know how much vacuum you really need?
Vacuum is one of the most energy-consuming elements of a paper mill. With the Runtech RunEco vacuum system, paper producers can reach anything from 30 to 70% energy saving.
A vacuum system audit is used to document and benchmark the overall effectiveness of a vacuum system and sheet dewatering process, to highlight problem areas and opportunities to reduce operational costs.
In a Desktop Vacuum Audit, based on the data template you complete, we can provide you energy-saving tips, benchmark your machine against similar ones and calculate energy saving potential and estimated ROI.
