Instrumentation and gas analysis for industrial utilities

Industrial utilities are essential powering resources ranging from steam to fuel and electricity. Maintaining a closer eye on energy consumption can help enhance productivity, quality, and competitiveness of production lines with greater potential for savings. 

Instruments for measuring flow, pressure, level and temperature enable you to monitor your water, electricity and fuel consumption precisely and continuously . They help you detect possible drifts and malfunctions, prevent breakdowns, and optimize maintenance operations.

Gas analysers enable you to monitor your atmospheric emissions andoptimize your industrial processes.

By staying ahead of possible failures through precise monitoring these systems create an opportunity for companies to maximize their returns while reducing their costs significantly over time.

Steam system energy performance

Steam system energy performance

Measurement of steam parameters is essential to optimize processes using saturated and superheated fluids, such as those found in the chemical or petrochemical industries.

Our measurements instruments allow you measure energy flow rates; pressure levels which can be used for compensation purposes if needed along with temperature readings too! This allows companies create smart data that will help them establish relevant performance indicators while monitoring equipment's effectiveness from day-to-day.

Energy optimization of fuels

Energy optimization of fuels

Fuel is a vital resource for the manufacturing industry, providing heat energy required for many key processes.

The industrial sector accounts for 20% of French energy consumption (36% gas and 40% electricity).

Gas and fuel oil are mainly used to produce heat for processes. Fuel oil and gas are frequently used to generate hot air or steam, which are essential for chemical reactions and various industrial operations. Fuel is also used as raw material in industries such as the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Other sectors such as engineering, automotive, agri-food, environment and energy use fuel to power equipment or systems needed for their operations.

Hydrocarbons are used as raw materials in the chemical industry.

Through instrumentation, businesses can measure fuel consumption. Any kind of measurement can be done: from fuel oil and hydrocarbon flow rate to gas flow rate, pressure, temperature or combustion regulation analysis. The data gathered through instrumentation allows companies to make informed decisions about their process operations in order to make energy savings and to remain competitive.

Energy optimization for electricity

Energy optimization of utilities: Electricity

With the entry of competition into the electricity market, industries are finding it increasingly difficult to accurately determine their energy needs so that they can negotiate with power suppliers for optimised rates. Fuji Electric instrumentation is here to bridge that gap and ensure that utilities consume the right amount of energy. The instrumentation makes use of smart data for analysis and distribution of consumed electricity to calculate relevant performance indicators. This instrumentation also includes essential measurements such as power energy counter which allows businesses to remain competitive in a market where prices are constantly fluctuating.

Refrigerant circuit energy performance

Refrigeration circuit energy performance

Industrial air conditions, and refrigerant systems are used in a wide range of industries (pharmaceutical, chemical, etc), including heating and ventilating.

However, the food industry is responsible for as much 57% off electricity consumption due to its reliance on cooling circuits such data centers or public buildings. Fuji Electric has an extensive global offer when it comes down performance optimisation needs!

Energy optimization of compressed air network

Energy optimization of compressed air network

Compressed air is an extremely expensive process with a conversion rate that's less than 10%.

Savings of 15%-30% can be achieved by managing networks more accurately, choosing performance indicators wisely and exploiting data appropriately. These savings are available to many industries including glassworks, mechanical, automotive, plastic, smelting plant and engineering industries—or any other plant where accurate flow, pressure, temperature or power consumption information are necessary for effective operations.
