Gaining Energy Efficiency via Automated Valves

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding control valve energy losses
  • Implementing an automatic boiler blowdown to save energy costs
  • Are your valves really closed?  Are you sure?
  • Are your steam traps leaking through?  New wireless detectors can alert you!
  • Are your automated valves working properly? Learn how you can test them automatically.

What You Will Learn: 

Valves play a very important role in controlling energy processes involving heating and cooling.  Applications range from heating and cooling a high rise office building to super-heated steam in a power plant.  The more we know about valve designs and automated valve systems, the more energy savings we can obtain. 

This webinar will address just a few of the many technology related solutions to getting your valves to perform at their highest efficiency.  There are a lot of relatively inexpensive ways to monitor your valves performance, some even via wireless networks.  

The bottom line is “Valves Can be a Huge Energy Waster” and we should raise their priority level to minimize these energy losses.  Today’s energy costs are rising and will continue to rise, so implementing a “Valve Energy Awareness” initiative in your company will be time well spent!
