Process integration is a highly effective approach to improving the energy efficiency of large and complex industrial facilities with energy-intensive systems.
Pinch Analysis: A Powerful Process Integration Technique
Pinch Analysis is a comprehensive method of analysis, based on thermodynamic principles, that was developed for the design of highly efficient processes in terms of energy. By considering all the energy streams in a process, it can determine what the minimum energy consumption would be in the presence of optimal heat recovery.
Also useful in optimizing water and energy use in many industrial processes, the Pinch Analysis approach is now a recognized and well-proven method in most industry sectors.
