Adjustable Speed Drives on Combustion Air FansCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Melting and Refining|
|Energy Savings Potential||
In a US based plant, a potential to reduce electricity consumption by 800 000 kWh/y with the use of ASDs has been identified (Worrell et al., 2008. p.60).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
In a US based plant, the payback time for installing ASDs was estimated to be 1.7 years.
The savings and the payback time will depend on the operating conditions of the fan system and the size of the furnace (Worrell et al., 2008. p.60).
