ENERGY SAVING SYSTEMS
Electrical / Energy Saving DevicesAt The Orchid we have not only made efforts to reduce our solid waste and conserve water but also have contributed in saving energy. To know more about the energy saving at our hotel read on:
PL Lamps/ Fluorescent Tubes|
At The Orchid, energy efficient PL lamps are used, which provide as much light as ordinary bulbs, yet consume substantially less energy. To cite an example: A 10W PL lamp is as bright as a 60W incandescent bulb, whereas the the power consumption of the PL lamp will be just 25% of what would be consumed by the ordinary bulb! What's more since room lights come on only when a key card is inserted, there is no chance that lights or the air conditioner remains on once the guest leaves the room.
At The Orchid ozone depletion levels have been reduced to 99.55% as we have used the more eco-friendly alternative i.e. R22 instead of CFC refrigerants. The mono screw chillers which have the least number of moving parts operate on a stepless efficiency range of 10% to 100%. Attached to the air-conditioning system is the STL tank to store cold energy during off-peak hours. This stored energy is then used during the peak hours/periods reducing compressor overloading and cutting power consumption. The heat generated from the air conditioners provides hot water to the guestrooms, laundry, toilets and kitchen.
The mini bars used in the guest rooms save upto 40% energy, as they are equipped with "fuzzy logic" which senses the load inside the refrigerator and cools it accordingly. Also an added advantage is that these mini bars are CFC free.
|Air Scrubber For Boiler|
At The Orchid we have taken steps to reduce air pollution by installing what is known as Air Scrubbers in the boiler outlet connected with the chimney. The boiler produces a high amount of carbon dioxide fumes which pass through the scrubber and are emitted through the chimney (the fumes emitted are clear white fumes instead of the dark/black fumes usually seen). This is because when the fumes pass through the scrubber, water is sprayed and the carbon dioxide dissolves and settles down in the shower traps and clear fumes are emitted in the air. The consumption of water is 300-600 litres per hour for 1000-meter cube of gas, reducing the fume gas temperature from 250 degrees C to 50 degrees C. The water utilised in the air scrubber is recycled water from the Sewage treatment plant (STP). A similar equipment installed in the kitchen exhaust system, is the 'air washer', which works on the same principles.
Electronic Reduced Voltage Soft Starter Cum Energy Saver For A/C Compressor
During the start, the motor acceleration is controlled by gradually increasing the motor current to a reference current ramp limit. In the energy saving mode the applied voltage is adjusted by sensing when the motor current is minimum.
