How optimising a HEX evaporator created €110,078 in savings for an edible oils plant

A global edible oils plant tasked Crowley Carbon with identifying energy optimisation opportunities. Savings of €110,078 were achieved by optimising the HEX evaporator and steam use in the distillation process.

This case study focuses on the quickest ROI implementations that were carried out, which include control hardware and software changes. In CAPEX terms, the payback of the improvements made by Crowley Carbon is estimated at less than 2 months.
