Case studies

The proof: Case Studies 

# 1. Refinery | Oil storage tank roof

Storage temperature: 60°C / 140°F

BEFORE AFTER THE TIPCHECK
Old and damaged insulation on the roof Saved ~7.500 MWh of energy / year 
CUI problems: roof sheets heavily corroded Saved € 185.0000 per year
The roof had to be replaced Payback time less than 2 years
  CO₂ emission reduction potential 1.500 t/year
  Results against uninsulated with an optimised insulation applied with a technical solution avoiding CUI problems

 

# 2. Chemical Plant

Process temperature: from 75°C/ 167°F to 150°C/ 302°F

BEFORE AFTER THE TIPCHECK
650 m of piping with missing or damaged insulation Saved ~11.100 MWh of energy / year 
300 uninsulated pairs of flanges Saved € 200.000 per year
160 uninsulated valves Payback time less than 1 year
3 uninsulated tanks CO₂ emission reduction potential 2.240 t/year

 

# 3. Refinery

Process temperature: 260°C/ 500°F

BEFORE AFTER THE TIPCHECK
1 uninsulated valve 12’ Saved ~114 MWh of energy per year 
  Saved € 3.200 per year
  Payback time less than 1 year
  CO₂ emission reduction potential 51 t/year
