Reducing Energy in Industrial Plants Using Equipment Sequencing

Dive deep into energy conservation strategies
with Allan Evora, Instrumentation Specialist

About The Webinar

While visiting industrial facilities, I often see aspects of energy efficiency overlooked. Larger pieces of equipment aren’t typically set up to match their load. Your dynamic manufacturing facility needs a mechanism in place to address constant changes (e.g., production levels, adding more machines, etc.) and utility cost increases.

How can you address these changes and still provide the necessary resources to operate the facility in an economical manner?

Equipment sequencing control schemes can be used to help you run your plant more efficiently and reduce energy cost. By automatically making decisions on which machines to sequence on and off based on real-time measurements, these schemes can maximize optimal equipment design points.

You'll Learn

The best way to run multiple machines at their optimal levels while minimizing the number of machines that need to run. This includes best practices related to determining cycling setpoints, prioritization of runtime accumulation, and installing submeters.
