Project Overview

Implementación de un sistema de medición ultrasónico para evidenciar las ineficiencias de consumo de agua en la planta de cemento de Toluviejo. Este sistema permite medir en tiempo real los consumos de agua, de tal forma que se puedan tomar decisiones más rápidas en las áreas de mayor consumo. Además, permitió evidenciar fugas en las tuberías de distribución en el sistema de captación y en el sistema de bombeo de agua.

Project Results

Ahorros en la extracción de agua de aproximadamente 108,138 m3/año. 10,922 USD/año por la disminución de la extracción de agua. Otro beneficio adicional es la disminución de los riesgos generados por la escasez de agua al tener un mayor control del agua extraída.
