Insulating Your Facility Reduces Your Energy Costs!
How much fuel savings can be expected from insulating hot asphalt pipes in your facility?
The amount of energy savings may surprise you! The thermal losses and transmission or distribution of energy generally waste more than half the original fuel BTU content1. The savings for each asphalt plant is unique – it really depends on the size of your facility, energy purchase price, and the amount of exposed hot piping, valves, flanges, and flexible hoses.
Consider the theoretical examples below to give you an idea of the amount of savings that you could receive during a typical operating season.
To Reduce Your Energy Costs:
"All I care about is how much money I can save your asphalt plant and how quickly you see the return on your investment... generally 9 months."
