Energy Consulting

Improving Energy Efficiency in plastics and polymers processing

Experience

We have more than 25 years of experience in the industry.

We will use our knowledge and experience for our customers, in order to achieve energy savings.

T

Detailed Work

There will not be too much tie or too much meeting room. We like to be in the shopfloor for several days to measure and find improvement opportunities. This not just about LED lighting and a lot of observation and measurements are required.

Return of investment less than 1 year

Our latest activities have provided savings of 24%, and ROI’s of less than 1 year. Other similar activities in the market are around 5%-10%, and over 3 years.

Energy Efficiency Services

Energy Efficiency Workshops

It is the most requested service and also the most complete one.

It is a 360º Workshop on Energy Efficiency, where all aspects that have to do with energy use are assessed. Both, technical and organizational aspects are considered.

After the previous workshop preparation, the shop-floor activity will last between 2 and 5 days. Firstly, the plant is modeled finding the drivers for energy use, and then the necessary measurements and observations are made in the shop-floor.

This activity usually includes the measurement of the CO2 footprint.

In the course of the activity, the staff receives practical training.

The Energy Efficiency Workshops include most of the other consulting services related to Energy Efficiency.

We are familiar with all technologies like injection, extrusion, thermoforming, extrusion and injection blowing, compression, rotomoulding, foaming, etc.

Energy Eficiency Workshop step by step

Creación del Modelo de Eficiencia Energética
Model

A model is created that relates energy use and its drivers. One or several drivers may exist. The aim is to predice energy usage based on these drivers, and defining a target to properly assess the site’s performance, regardless volume or other drivers changes .

Revisión de los contratos energéticos
Contract

We review the contracting conditions, invoices, charges, etc. We propose cheaper alternatives for conditions that meet the need. It’s about having just what you need, not more and not less.

Costes de generación de refrigeración
Cooling

We evaluate and benchmark cooling costs. We analyze the suitability of the system and propose improvements on generation and distribution. We assess the impact and ROI each action.

Generación de aire comprimido en la industria
Compressed Air

We evaluate and benchmark the compressed air costs. We apply a very specific methodology to reduce the compressed air use. We assess the impact and ROI of each action.

Pérdidas térmicas por mal aislamiento en la industria
Insulation

We calculate the losses due to lack of insulation. We propose systems to minimize losses. We assess the impact and ROI of each action.

Eficiencia Energética de la iluminación en la industria
lighting

With our own methodology, we analyze the current situation, determine the suitability of what exists, and promote alternatives. We evaluate the impact of the proposal.

Eficiencia Energética de los motores eléctricos en la industria
Electric Motors

We will review current electric motors and their operating cost. We will benchmark them and propose alternatives, assessing impact and ROI.

Análisis de procesos en la industria
Processes

We will analyze the processes from both, technical and organizational  perspective. We will propose some settings improvements together with the customer’s team.

Our Energy Efficiency Workshops are the most complete and advanced in the market.

You can start saving and training your team on energy efficiency right now.

Technical Validations

They are specific assessments on one or more machines or processes, and allow to perform several types of analysis:

  • Actual Efficiency 85% 85%
  • Sales (catalogue) Efficiency 95% 95%

New Machines

When you buy a new machine:

These assessments allow to gather information about different machine types, models, settings, etc.

In-house Training

We carry out in-house tailored training adapted to each customer need. They can be focused on supplies, process, management, modeling, etc., or even full & complete training.

We are flexible and can adapt the training sessions to the availability and organization of the customer.

This type of training sessions allow to standardize the level of training of all the staff in the site, and is recommended when the number of attendees is over 5-7 people.

Programed Training

Axis Technology provides regular training, both in collaboration with different organizations, and self-organized.

It is usually carried out under the ‘on-line’ format, and they a are ‘sort’ of workshop driven: high degree of participation by the attendees, explaining their experience.

Due-Diligence Processes

Axis Technology participates in due diligence processes, not only to verify the legal compliance regarding energy, but also to understand the potential for improvement of the company. We also contribute to the understanding of what is the level of investment to achieve the calculated savings.

Compressed Air and Gas Leak Measurement

Axis technology performs compressed air and other gas (e.g. ammonia in large cooling systems) leak measurement. We firstly make the ‘leak hunt’, and a cost evaluation of the actual leak level. In addition, the plant is guided on the actions to reduce them, and the implementation of a system to keep the reduced level under control.

Technical and computer tools are used to measure and quantify the leak level.
