The studies involve computing the flow (by pump up test of suction velocity measurement), measuring
pressure as well as motor input power to assess operating performance of the individual equipment.
The typical scope of the work covers
Measuring the flow of the utility fluid with non-contact ultrasonic transit time flow meter
Gauging temperature change of the utility fluid across the heat exchanger with digital temperature
Computing Heat transferred to the cooling utility side and comparing the same with process data
Measuring the flow of process fluid with non-contact ultrasonic transit time flow meter, if possible
Gauging temperature change of process fluid across the heat exchanger with digital temperature
Computing Heat transferred for the process side & comparing with the utility load
Noting down the pressure drops on the utility side, if possible
Noting down the pressure drops on the process side, if possible
Estimating Heat Transfer Coefficient based on the design data
Comparing the values with the design data to analyzing the gaps, if any.
Assessing the performance and suggesting ways for improvement, as applicable
Submitting the report
A team of two engineers is deputed to carry out the studies and furnishing the report. The field visit is
typically for 5 to 6 hours; during which up to 10 measurements can be carried out depending upon initial
preparations,conditions of ducting systems and support from the plant team.
