Detailed Energy Audit of Refrigeration System in Jordanian Industry
Detailed energy audit is a very valuable procedure for framing a successful energy management plan. In this
paper,a comprehensive energy audit of a cooling system for canning and capping industries has been investigated.
Conservation opportunity is found in the refrigeration system after analyzing the measurements. Two energy measures were
recommended; the first on is installing cooling tower while the second is increasing the supply water temperature.
The results show that the chiller efficiency will be increased by about 69% when the supply water temperature is increased
from 0.0 to 10.0 °C. Moreover, an amount of 3,010 JD will be saved annually with initial investment of 7,540 JD, which
leads to approximately a payback period of 2.5 years.
