Impeller TrimmingCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Cross Cutting Technology|
|Energy Savings Potential||
By reducing the impeller diameter from 320 mm to 280 mm, energy savings between 25 to 30% have been realized in plants in the US and the UK.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
Maintenance costs were reduced by impeller trimming.
Impeller Trimming Publications
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) energy guide, Energy Efficiency Improvement and Cost Saving Opportunities for the U.S. Iron and Steel Industry, discusses energy efficiency practices and technologies that can be implemented in iron and steel manufacturing plants. This guide provides current real world examples of iron and steel plants saving energy and reducing cost and carbon dioxide emissions.
