Saving Energy with Decentralized Circulation Pumps

Central heating systems are widely used in homes throughout much of Europe. Most of them consist of one or more centrally located pumps that circulate hot water to the radiators and the floor heating system. However, there are alternatives available as well. A relatively new technology uses small decentralized circulation pumps. Each radiator and each circuit of the floor heating system has its own circulation pump. This not only enables zone-heating, it also helps save fuel and electricity.

Life Cycle Costing case studies of RES and EE projects

Making sound energy investment decisions is a complex task – no matter whether it concerns a Renewable Energy System (RES) or an Energy Efficiency (EE) investment. A Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis combined with an assessment of the available financing options should be the obligatory path for every investment decision. Decision makers usually focus on familiar financing schemes and may fail to consider alternative means of financing which can be of significant added value to a project.

Foundries in U.S. use ladles to transfer molten metal from the melt operation to cast operation. Currently, gas and oil firing are the most common method of drying and heating of refractory lined ladles, tundishes, soaking pits and various furnaces in steel mills and other small and big foundries. Convective heating for heating the refractory linings can be achieved by using dedicated burner setups for ladles and tundishes. However, this method has very low efficiency, in the order of 5-25%. Alternatively, electric ladle pre-heating offers many advantages over the current methods.
