EMISSIS GAS FUEL OPTIMISER CASE STUDY
Site 1 Pfizer Pharmaceutical Factory in Morpeth, the boiler chosen was isolated from other systems and only used to provide central heating and hot water for the QA labs. The site is a multi product site now owned by Nicholas Piramal of India – NPIL. The 2 boilers were Cochran Wee Chieftain Boilers both were Natural Fuel fired at 750,000 BTU.
A sophisticated automatic electronic monitoring system, part of the BM System collected all data.
The boilers were monitored for 56 days prior to the installation of the fuel conditioning units. Throughout this period the average daily fuel consumption was 379.6 m3. The degree day data gathered from the Met Office was applied to the consumption resulting in the degree day data applied fuel consumption being 57.9 m3/day. The magnetic fuel conditioning units were installed to the fuel inlet pipe and the boiler was monitored again. The boilers were monitored for a period of 65 days once the fuel conditioning units had been installed, throughout this period the average daily fuel consumption was 516.7 m3. The degree day data gathered from the Met Office was applied to the consumption resulting in the degree day data applied daily fuel consumption being 52 m3/day.
