SKF Energy Monitoring Service – Pump Systems, a BeyondZero Portfolio product, recently helped an SKF customer identify a potential reduction of 1900 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
Eric Huston, SKF Global Business Manager, Asset and Energy Management, says: “The SKF Energy Monitoring Service – Pump Systems was developed to provide customers with insight about the operational efficiency of their pump systems. Many pump systems are inefficient, so the identified savings can be significant.”
An SKF customer within the pulp and paper industry identified an energy improvement potential of 70 per cent for one factory by monitoring only eight out of their 300 pumps. Through monitoring and optimising efficiency of the eight pumps, it was calculated that the factory could reduce its annual electricity demand by up to 2500MWh, corresponding to 1 per cent of the factory total electricity use. In terms of CO2 emission reduction, this equates to about 1900 tonnes per year (according to world power grid mix CO2 factor of 0.749kg CO2/kWh).
The Energy Monitoring Service (EMS) specifically for pump systems typically demonstrates an energy use savings potential of more than than 20 per cent in non-monitored pump systems, and year-to-year savings of approximately 5 per cent in those systems that are regularly monitored.
