Improving energy efficiency

By continuous heat exchanger monitoring

Key Challenges

  • Various fouling issues decreasing the heat transfer effectiveness
  • Changing operation conditions or e.g. incorrect pressure or temperature ratings
  • Corrosion and abrasion detection

Main Objectives

  • Avoid unnecessary inefficiency in heat transfer and energy consumption
  • Enable optimal cleaning and maintenance operations
  • Provide early warnings for fouling, harmful operation conditions or sign of any damages

Top Actions

  • Wireless temperature ja pressure measurement installed in selected products; option for vibration and flow/impurity sensors
  • LoRa based data collection to cloud service
  • Real time monitoring and automatic alarm system through IoTKey service portal

Direct Benefits

  • Improved energy and operational efficiency with clear cost savings
  • Extended product life cycle and lower warranty costs
  • New service business based on real-time data from delivered products
  • Valuable insight regarding product usage, operation conditions and for problem diagnostic
