Volumetric Flow Control for Process Systems Drastically Reduced Energy Consumption and CO2 Emissions
Ecoclean has developed its dynamic volumetric flow controller: Ecoclean DFC. The control is based on the measured variables of pressure and volumetric flowrate and enables energy savings of up to 45 % with a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions.
Based on the measured variables of pressure and volumetric flow, the pumps or fluid systems can be controlled precisely and quickly as required. Measuring sensors are integrated into the main outlet of the process system and the pumps are equipped with variable frequency drive units. The pump speed can be so finely controlled by the Ecoclean DFC that the amount of coolant delivered is automatically and quickly adapted to the current fluid requirement at any time. This makes the bypass lines completely superfluous, states the company.
What is much more important, however, is that only the amount of energy actually required is consumed, thus significantly reducing not only operating costs but also CO2 emissions. This highly efficient pump control enables energy consumption to be cut by anything up 45 %, adds the firm. As a result, federal, state and local government funding programs generally subsidize the investment costs for retrofitting existing supply systems with the company’s dynamic volumetric flow control by 30 %, concludes the company.
