Chemical plant, The Netherlands
Annual savings: 1,500,000 kWh/a - 28,651 EUR/a
The possible gains from insulating valves and other un-insulated elements of a plant that needed to remain in operation, was investigated by EiiF Founding Partner Hertel. The TIPCHECK engineers measured temperature losses of about 80 objects in 37 different positions along the production line.

In this particular case, the client requested the insulated to be improved up to his own standards. This level is most likely lower than the cost-effective level discussed throughout this study. As such, a higher savings potential could have been achieved if the cost-effective or equal-costs level of insulation was applied.
