Manufacturing Facilities Energy Audits

Manufacturing Facilities Benefit From Mechanical Insulation

Mechanical insulation is a time-tested technology, which has been proven to offer a return on investment in manufacturing facilities.

Properly installed and maintained mechanical insulation helps improve the efficiency and life of mechanical systems and machines, while also saving energy.

By reducing the amount of energy a system loses, a manufacturing facility can save money, which sometimes can result in a substantial return on investment.

Discover what other manufacturing facilities are doing through the below example energy audits that the Mechanical Insulation LMCT has provided below. Plant managers, maintenance managers and other key decision makers can download and read some of these mechanical insulation audits and reports and learn the benefits of mechanical insulation in the manufacturing sector.

Audit Reports

Select a summary below to read the full report.

AV Nackawic Inc Pulp and Wood Manufacturing Facility Final Audit Report

This audit found the condition of installed mechanical insulation to be substandard or nonexistent. By replacing/installing mechanical insulation, the facility would save about $510,000 over a five-year period and reduce the amount of CO2 emissions by 514.92 Mt per year. Exact details on the plant’s energy performance can be found in this energy audit report.

Goodyear Tire production plant Final Energy Audit Report

The Save Energy Now audit discovered the tire presses were only partially insulated, resulting in the loss of roughly 1,500 pounds per hour of steam. Annual energy savings of all insulation-related recommendations amounted to more than $1 million. You can find more in-depth information in the downloadable energy audit.

Leduc Food Processing Development Center Final Energy Audit Report

An energy audit performed at this food processing plant discovered missing and failing mechanical insulation. The audit calculated an annual energy savings of 2,537 gigajoules, which results in a cost savings of $10,100 annually and an annual reduction of CO2 emissions by 125 Mt. Find out more about how much energy your plant could be saving using this energy audit as an example.

West Linn Paper Manufacturing Mill Final Energy Audit Report

A Save Energy Now audit found some areas of the facility were under insulated. Overall, the audit recommended installing new controls, adding insulation and repairing steam traps. Total implementation of the improvements will result in an annual savings of $379,000. More details can be found in the energy audit available here.
