Insulation of Steam LinesCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Cross Cutting Technology|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Insulation can typically reduce energy losses by 90%.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
Payback times between 10 to 13 months have been reported In one steel plant it was found that for every 100 feet of piping insulated, energy savings could be upto $19,000 each year (Worrell, et al., 2010. p. 52).
Insulation of Steam Lines 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.
