      The paper describes total energy management in a company where only a small amount of energy is used as a proportion of total cost operation and the effect of such programs since their inception in 1976. Energy Management ...
    • Energy Management in the 1980's 

      Govindan, T. S. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      Energy management in an industrial plant requires several short-and long-range steps. In the 1970's, steps to improve housekeeping and to make minor modifications to equipment were initiated. The next stage in the improvement ...
    • Foreign-Made Energy Conservation Equipment in the U. S. Market 

      Exstrum, B. A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      The huge jump in energy prices since the early 1970s has created a large market for energy-saving industrial equipment and systems in the U.S. In Europe and Japan, great emphasis has been placed on developing energy-efficient ...
    • Heat Pipes: An Industrial Application 

      Murray, F. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      This paper reviews the basics of heat pipe exchangers. Included are how they are constructed, how they operate, where they have application, and various aspects of evaluating a potential application. After discussing the ...
    • Heat Transfer Enhancement: Second Generation Technology 

      Bergles, A. E.; Webb, R. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      This paper reviews current activity in the field of enhanced heat transfer, with the aim of illustrating the technology and typical applications. Guidelines for application of enhanced surfaces are given, and practical ...
    • Heat-Traced Fluid Transfer Lines 

      Schilling, R. E. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      This paper discusses basic considerations in designing a heat tracing system using either team or electrical tracing. Four basic reasons to heat trace are dealt with: water freeze protection, chemical freeze protection, ...
    • Industrial Utilization of Coal-Oil Mixtures 

      Dunn, J. E.; Hawkins, G. T. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
