Part 1 Provides The Grounding in Energy Management

Part 1 comprises seven modules. The first three modules serve as an introduction to energy management and cover:

• Energy Management Systems

• Understanding Energy Use

• Monitoring and Targeting

The next four modules focus on optimising energy use and are designed to provide useful insights to any type of plastics processor. These modules cover:

• Motors

• Compressed Air

• Chilled and cooling water

• Drying

Upon successful completion of Part 1, learners are encouraged to select and purchase the modules they require from Part 2, which looks at energy management techniques for specific plastic manufacturing processes.

It is possible to purchase modules from Part 2 without undertaking Part 1 if that is your preference.

Effective Energy Management for Plastics Processors Part 1 takes approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete.
