Applications Site Survey Checklist

 

  • What is the physical form of the waste heat (liquid or gas)?

  • What is the chemical composition of the waste heat (e.g., air, nitrogen, % chemical composition by weight or molecular species)?

  • What is the temperature of the waste heat, or temperature range and duty cycle if a cycling process?

  • What is the mass flow rate of the exhausted waste heat from the process (kg/sec) or the volume flow rate of the exhaust (Nm^3, scfm)?

  • How many hours per year does this process operate?

  • What is the avoided electricity cost at the facility, considering both the energy rate and the demand charges?

  • Are there any other motivators for energy efficiency at the facility, such as government incentives or regulatory requirements?

  • What are the site dimensional constraints (dimensions, weight limits, etc)?

  • What is the electrical frequency at the site: 50/60 Hz electricity?

  • What is the grid voltage level?
