Many industrial operations rely on the movement of fluids such as water, air, and raw or final product. While the fans, pumps, and blowers responsible for this movement consume large quantities of energy, it is often the systems and processes they serve that render them inefficient.
For this reason, Cascade Energy employs a holistic approach when improving the energy efficiency of fans, pumps, and blowers. In addition to focusing on pressure, flow, and controls, we analyze the systems in which they are functioning and the operational processes they support. Data logging, in-depth modeling, and simulation often reveal subtle or hidden opportunities to minimize pressure drops and throttling, avoid recirculated flow, utilize speed control, and operate at the sweet spot of efficiency for these prime movers. In some cases, a complete system redesign can lead to substantial reductions in energy use as well as increase system capacity.
With a holistic, data-driven approach to fans, pumps and blowers, Cascade can identify, implement and manage the complex and multifaceted measures that deliver optimal energy and cost savings.
