Your Fuel Cost ($)  

This form calculates the approximate energy saved using various technologies. For these calculations, 50% RH and sea level elevation are assumed or data is from published source (see notes). All data is believed to be accurate and is from published sources but not guaranteed. Request in writing an energy usage guarantee based on your situation and include:

  1. Your elevation above sea level
  2. TPH throughput (dried)
  3. Moisture in % (be as accurate as possible)
  4. Discharge moisture you need, 5) Product sizes and type of product.
  5. Operating data for “Rotary” obtained from NISA Energy Conservation Survey.
  6. Operating data for “Fluid Bed” obtained from published data in public domain.
  7. Energy figures are approximate and for reference only.
