Home / Case Study / A plant in North India with 20 daylight heating cooling press system manufacturing plywood and block boards and flush doors

Problem
- Manual intervention to operate the steam and cooling water valves

- Major loss of live steam due to frequent blowdown during heating cycles

- High heating time, wastage of energy and reduced productivity due to condensate logging 
Objective
To eliminate live steam losses and improve productivity.
Solution
- Installation of Forbes Marshall's plattenMAC automation package for heating and cooling presses

- Installation of proper trapping system and condensate recovery system
Benefits
- Manual intervention eliminated

- Automation of the cooling presses helped prevent wastage and losses, and improved productivity

- 60% reduction in heating cycle time with improved condensate recovery directly to feedwater tank

- Automatic separation of condensate and cooling water

- Improved productivity

- Saving of Rs 1,00,000/- per annum in treated water costs

- 5% saving in annual fuel costs
