Giant machinery and heavy-duty equipment within a typical manufacturing plant tends to operate on multiple shifts for hours at a time, consuming vast quantities of electricity, gas and water. For some manufacturers this energy usage must be allocated among individual clients and production lines and runs.
Using a master metering system for manufacturing and major building systems is inefficient and offers no windows into how energy is consumed and allocated. Additionally, having access to historical data usage for each piece of equipment and process could allow manufacturers to competitively bid on new jobs and grow their business.
Understanding how energy is consumed and managed is key to reducing costs. Submetering offers scalable solutions for facility managers and operators and valuable insight into the performance of the overall facility. Energy monitoring data can facilitate a robust energy management and improvement plan to provide significant savings opportunities.
Using VerifEye™ Submetering to Improve Manufacturing Plants
VerifEye™ Submetering Solutions are extremely scalable. It can be installed in phases without interrupting processing or production. The use of split-core current transformers (CTs) enables installation without power interruptions. Submetering can help streamline demand analysis, production and administrative cost allocation, and equipment maintenance opportunities. The end result is a better bottom line.
