It is important to highlight poorly insulated areas of chilled water or refrigerant pipe lines due to heat ingresses. Preventing condensation and subsequent damage to infrastructure and associated components (seals, valves etc.) is paramount given the effect it can also have on the environment.
The survey that is carried out on chilled and refrigeration systems highlights all areas of poorly insulated pipe work. The saving calculations identify heat loss and potential losses to the system infrastructure, these all increase running costs of the system due to pipe leaks or other damage. Therefore, fault areas are highlighted using thermal images and the potential effect on the system is estimated through radiated heat transfer calculations and estimations on the associated running costs.
Saving estimations can be obtained once the repair costs are confirmed. The actual repair cost can be entered into Monition’s energy portal using your log-in. This will give you the actual savings achieved after the completion of each action in both cost and carbon dioxide. The information provided in the report allows you to prioritise the order of repair work to maximise your saving opportunities.
