For many businesses, refrigeration systems consume large amounts of electricity, thereby contributing greatly to operating costs. Improvements to technical aspects of operations have the potential to reduce energy use by up to 40%, whilst simple improvements in operational practices can reduce energy use by 15%.
Aimed at refrigeration operators, this guide outlines system changes that can be made to improve the performance of equipment, reduce operating costs and improve profitability. It’s a step-by-step guide to improving energy efficiency in medium to large-scale industrial refrigeration systems. It provides good practice information on system operation and outlines opportunities for improving system performance and efficiency.
Extract from the table of contents: the business benefits of efficient refrigeration; what is your opportunity? Solution 1: reduce your need for refrigeration; solution 2: improve the efficiency of your existing system (review refrigeration demand, insulation, the coolant distribution system and refrigeration plant, controls set points and heat rejection; optimise maintenance; and measure the results); solution 3: design a new system (select system configuration, heat transfer fluids, refrigerant, evaporators, condenser and compressors; potential for refrigerant accumulators; consider heat recovery; summary of savings).
