Concrete energy savings

Cement producers are under intense pressure to improve productivity and reduce costs and environmental impact. The cement making process is a large consumer of electricity and fuel.

To help solve their environmental and financial challenges, SKF engineer Keith Meyers applies SKF’s life cycle management approach to the manufacturing process. The results are impressive.

One cement producer reduced energy usage by 8%, which is equal to the annual electric consumption of 18,000 average European households, and increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness by 12%.

This is a great example of what we call Knowledge Engineering. And yet another way of how we apply our know-how by utilizing our wide range of products and services to help increase efficiency, save energy and reduce costs.
