Mr. Virote Kumpeera, Senior Vice President of Charoen Pokphand Foods PLC (CPF) revealed the company has invested in energy innovation called “Economizer or heat exchanger device” to help reduce the lost or waste heat in the production process, of which Pak Thong Chai Feedmill in Nakhon Ratchasima is the pilot plant. The company plans to expand into other plants to gain fuel saving with the highest efficiency.
An Economizer initiated from the idea to saving energy, increasing work efficiency and reducing cost which are in line with the company’s policies that strives for energy conscious into staff at all level.
An Economizer is a heat exchanger device that captures the “lost or waste heat” from the boiler’s hot stack gas. The economizer transfers this waste heat to the boiler’s feed-water and can be used to heat domestic water. Capturing this normally lost heat reduces the overall fuel requirements for the boiler. Less fuel causes money saved as well as fewer emissions since the boiler now operates at a higher efficiency.
