Industrial Water & Energy Reduction

​As the world's water supply becomes more precious, industrial water use is a prime area of concern. ​FluidEfficiency's Water Management Program is designed to help your facility identify specific equipment and processes using excessive flush water and energy. Our data-oriented approach dovetails with Continuous Improvement and Sustainability Objectives at both a site and corporate level.

Our Process

The FluidEfficiency team first performs a complete, on-site flush water usage assessment in accordance ISO’s 14015 EASO framework.  We employ non-intrusive, ultrasonic flow measurement technology to determine flush water flow into and out of each stuffing box on targeted rotating equipment.  This method allows us to establish a clear and definitive baseline of flush water usage and process dilution. 

By coupling site specific utility costs and the collected measurement data, our engineers will then calculate the financial impact of flush water usage on each piece of equipment measured.

Analysis and Reporting

  • Water Supply and Treatment Cost Analysis – Identification of the costs incurred as a result of supplying and the required effluent treatment of flush water.
  • Evaporation Cost Analysis – Identification of the costs attributable to the dilution and excess evaporator load incurred by flush water entering the process stream.
  • Reheat/Heat Loss Analysis – Identification of the costs attributable to the heat loss incurred by flush water entering heated process streams.
  • Recommendations with Cost Justification – Specific recommendations to reduce flush water usage without sacrificing equipment reliability with complete return on investment analysis.
  • Macro Flush Water Cost Analysis – A site-wide summary of the financial impact of excessive water usage.
  • Flow Control Analysis – A breakdown of the site’s flow control practices and overall effectiveness as it relates to flush water use.
