Our Energy Saving Solution Services at Axelly as follows:
- Commercial Energy Audit of your Industrial Plant or Commercial Facility
- Power Quality Harmonic Audit
- Electrical Safety Audits
Commercial Energy Audit
An energy audit is an Industrial plant site survey or Commercial Facility Survey. The process where a professional auditor assesses and By working closely with our clients staff we are able to ensure that their facility Machines and Equipment’s are Energy Efficient and fully compliant with International Legislation, we also facilitate to present a feasibility report by performing site survey, involving measurements and analyses of energy and material flows in an industrial plant or Commercial Facility, with the objective of understanding the energy dynamics of the system. Typically an energy audit is conducted to identify opportunities that could help to reduce the energy demand and save Energy of the system without affecting production volumes, quality and safety.
We at Axelly Technologies employ a systems approach that goes beyond equipment efficiencies and estimates the overall system efficiencies of important processes and supporting utilities. This approach helps identify inefficiencies and hidden losses that may exist due to the design philosophy, system design, existing equipment design and/or operating practices. An Energy Audit is the first step to understanding how energy is used within a Facility. This understanding illuminates how to cost effectively reduce energy consumption and operating costs as well as improve environmental impact. Axelly Technologies is a premier provider of energy audits for the KSA energy efficiency market.
Methodology Our energy audits depending on the type of facility and its size begin with a briefing to the top management and plant team, wherein we communicate our methodology of work, the inputs needed from the plant and the deliverables from us. This interaction helps clarify the energy audit process and enables smooth flow of information and assistance during the course of work.
The site study involves detailed measurements and analyses of equipment operations and processes; frequent discussions with the plant team help improve our understanding of operations that enables understanding of the measurements and observations in the right perspective. Evolving energy saving ideas is discussed with the plant team so that any operational issues in implementing the measures are understood. Involvement of senior plant team members in the energy audit process is imperative for ensuring the quality of the deliverables of the study.
Power Quality and Harmonics: Causes and Effects
Harmonics are defined as waveforms at multiples of frequency of the fundamental input signal, Harmonic Distortion is described as the interference in an AC power signal created by frequency multiples of the sine wave. Total Harmonic Distortion is used as a measure of the amount of Harmonic distortion in the system. This article aims to highlight how the injection of harmonics, even in small quantities, can adversely affect the machines, motors and the power electronics. Often the injection of the harmonics affects the motor causing the harmonics in the first place. As such detection and reduction of harmonics is an important activity for the industry today. The motor will consume electrical energy to overcome the counter-torque created by the Negative Sequence Harmonics. The presence of harmonics also raises the operating temperature of the motor. This study is particularly suited to detection of harmonics in the system, for other power quality issues like sags and swells and voltage unbalance.
The report focuses primarily on:
- Harmonic injection levels in the electrical network
- Remedial measures to remove the harmonics from the system
Thermography measures surface temperatures by using infrared video and still cameras. These tools see light that is in the heat spectrum. Images on the video or film record the temperature variations of the facility. The resulting images help the auditor determine whether insulation is needed. They also serve as a quality control tool, to ensure that insulation has been installed correctly.
Electrical Safety Audits
We identify hazards and assess the risks associated with direct and indirect contact with live parts, electrical arcing, electrical fire and explosion, and mechanical movement of electrically-driven equipment. Safety, Health and Welfare at Work legislation imposes the duty on every employer to identify hazards in the place of work under his control and assess the risks to employees and any other persons who may be exposed, for the purpose of determining the necessary preventive and protective measures.
