Energy efficiency in the manufacturing industry
How to reduce your energy consumption with help of HAVER CPA technology.
Virtually all business sectors, all industrial companies and all private individuals are currently confronted with a global development seems to be almost unstoppable: Continuously increasing energy costs. None of us can directly influence this trend – what remains is basically a single means of leverage. We must use our energy as efficiently as possible in order to cut costs. This is exactly where our HAVER CPA technology can play a key role.
As a control and monitoring system, controlling the quality of bulk materials is – and remains – the main task of Dynamic Image Analysis.
Our HAVER CPA technology offers a previously unavailable depth of data that reveals a substantial plethora of information. You can exploit this overfulfillment of quality requirements to optimize your processes: The potential for optimization can yield reduced resource consumption, for example. Controlling the quality of your bulk materials more precisely, consistently, and on a smaller scale has a direct impact on energy-related factors.
With additional, enhanced data from various production processes, it is possible to evaluate these individual factors, parameters, and production steps with greater accuracy and thus also bring about relevant changes.
Drying of products requires a constant supply of energy. Since the properties (surface/packing density) of the product flow of these continuous process steps constantly vary, the energy supply is regulated to an approximate optimum (in wave-like motion) without ever actually hitting the ideal mark. The product quality even suffers from feeding too much energy when in doubt.
The additional data captured from smaller-scale monitoring reveals the potential for an exact and therefore efficient input of energy. In this case, product quality and energy requirements are simultaneously optimized resulting in inherent added value.
Control systems of present-day processes are designed for monitoring product quality. However, the available sensor data are at best sufficient for control processes but do not permit efficient optimization. The short-cycle measurement data from a HAVER CPA provide you with a wealth of data and precision that offer greater options for optimization, also with regard to resource and energy consumption.
Existing production environment control and monitoring systems are generally geared towards product quality. For a long time, retrofitting technological components for the purpose of optimizing energy consumption have not seemed possible or, at best not worthwhile. However, considering the state of the art measurement technology as applied in HAVER CPA, even existing production equipment generally offers sufficient capabilities for implementing cutting-edge measuring instruments.
