Major finding of a series of assessments were conducted by connecting CTs to the incomer supply, and different heater loads. Actual hourly consumption while starting and recharging was analysed and it was found that there was a problem with the existing old 6 ceramic heaters of 72kW consuming 70-80 units per hour. Replacing equipment is a larger investment, but considering the salvage value ahead of time, efficiency, energy expense and costs that go along with repair was greater than the cost of replacing the equipment. Hence by data driven decisions, Mr. Varun took the risk to replace the old ones with New Nano-Infrared heaters and the Energy consumption was reduced to 40-50 Units per Hour. As a result, these 6 heaters are reducing their energy costs an average of nearly 30-50% per hour and saving thousands of rupees on energy bills monthly.
