Earth Day: Burns helps care for Mom Nature

Posted on April 22, 2010

We asked our selves, "How do the sensors we provide help care for the earth?" Go Mother Nature

 

Save energy:  Every degree in temperature saved through better accuracy can save 437,824,800 BTUs of energy annually. (Which equates to about $8,980 in electrical usage)  See the analysis.

 

We monitor natural gas pipelines with an array of sensors to help identify leaks-early-to reduce gas loss and wasted energy in pumping.

 

We monitor cooling water discharge into rivers and lakes to ensure minimal environmental effects.  See the Application Note  Clean-clear water for the Walleyes

 

We are currently working on a sensor to monitor the temperature of Solar panels mounted on roof tops.

 

Burns sensors monitor Thermal Oxidizers at Ethanol plants to help reduce VOC emissions. See the Application Note

We provided sensors to a foundry to control the exhaust stack fan speed based on the stack temperature - saving energy.

 

We have place digital indicators in locations in the field at various processing plants to provide a local indication and help maintenance workers improve control of the systems. See the Application Note

 

We have RTDs supporting 134A refrigerant production as a replacement for Freon 12,   Reducing Ozone depletion.Wind and Air

 

Wow!  Proud to know we are caring for the environment especially today; Earth Day!
