Optimal design and development of heat tracing systems for enhancement of energy saving

Authors(3) :-Kaleeswari M, Madheswaran M, Vijaykumar K

Because rapid rise in the consumption of energy due to growing demand, there requires a need for the effective use of energy resources as the cost of energy has been rising due to growing demand. In addition to industries are being strictly regulated by the government in terms of the reduction of the carbon dioxide emissions ,so all the industries are striving towards the most energy efficient solutions. In this report, the trace heating system of the petrochemical industry has been discussed which explains about the optimal design and the usage of the technologies of trace heaters towards an energy efficient solution. Here the proper selection of insulation system and the trace heater technology and its electrical distribution resulted in an energy saving of 37% where the control and monitoring strategies resulted in 91% savings. Here the evaluated results can be applied to the new installations in the trace heating so that the installation cost will be saved.
