MetadataShow full item record
Introduction: The fuel used in the boilers at CBC is furnace oil. The efficiency is measured as a ratio of the amount of product produced to the amount of fuel used. This method of efficiency calculation is not accurate as it ignores a number of losses along the steam lines and fuel properties. Main objective: To analyse the steam energy and cost saving potential of industrial steam systems in Uganda by implementing energy efficiency practices. Conclusion: The status of the steam energy efficiency has been analysed at Century Bottling Company as a case study. The various proposed steam energy efficiency practices and saving potential have also been identified.
