Within the framework of its TIPCHECK Programme
, the European Industrial Insulation Foundation (EiiF) organized the 7th TIPCHECK training in Munich last week. A total of 14 participants of different nationalities took part in this training course to learn how to perform high quality thermal energy audits. TIPCHECKs
quantify the amount of energy and money that an industrial facility is losing with its current insulation system (including uninsulated parts).
The EiiF congratulates the 14 new TIPCHECK engineers who passed the test and received their certificate.
TIPCHECK engineers using the new TIPCHECK calculator software identify savings potentials for their clients. In tailor-made audits, TIPCHECKs evaluate systems and very often find cost-effective insulation solutions with payback times of just one year.
The first TIPCHECK experiences found huge savings potential. For instance, a TIPCHECK performed on a chemical plant in France identified annual savings of up to 12,600,000 kWh/a and 505,000 EUR/a. As another example, the annual savings detected in a Belgian refinery were of 1,370,000 kWh/a and 36,640 EUR/a.
