Humidification plants in Textile (spinning) consume almost 15%-18% of the total electricity consumption. Out of which nearly 80% to 90% goes to circulating “air” and is consumed by significant number of Fans (Industrial), hence even if the H plant has automation it at most impacts the 10% to 20% of the total electricity consumption, delivering gains of around ~1%.
Carefully playing around with the air flow during different time zones (day wise) could deliver gains of around 5%-7% at no or minimum cost (VFDs are installed across all Fans)
- Knowing when to “manipulate” air flow
Operators do intervene and manipulate the air flow during the day based on in room conditions etc, however it is something that is mostly “reactive” in nature. If we can collect data sets like Heat Load, In Room Condition etc from different data acquisition systems, we would be able to predict exact hours when the air flow could be optimised and to what %, this allows the operator to plan the changes and be more scientific and data driven without having to indulge in any complexity.
2. Automating the “manipulation”
For organisations that do not want to have this done manually, we have developed integrated logic for providing feedback to VFD on control of air flow factoring in room and outside conditions.
