Drawing up energy balances for dryers and kilns as a basis for energy monitoring

With its energy audits of dryers and kilns, Rotho provides the operators of brickworks and roofing tile factories with the possibility:
› firstly to analyse the basic energy situation (fuel and power consumption) of the dryer and kiln and assess it in comparison with other brickworks
› following on from this, to set up energy monitoring for the key energy consumers
› to identify necessary conversion measures for reducing energy consumption as well as to estimate the costs of these measures

Basis for the energy audits is the drawing up of detailed energy balances and their understandable...
