In today’s world, there is nothing more important to grow companies and save jobs than to reduce the cost of doing business.  Every dollar saved is worth a dollar earned.

 

 

A DHP Cost Reduction Audit evaluates an entire water treatment system with the goal of reducing Operation & Maintenance (O & M) costs. During an audit, one or multiple problems may be identified, the resolution of which results in significant cost savings. Reduced water usage and reduced wastewater production are always high priority goals of a Cost Reduction Audit.

 

DHP's Cost Reduction Record

DHP instructors/consultants have performed over 100 audits of water treatment systems since 1988. To date, DHP has ALWAYS produced more ANNUAL savings than the price of the audit. As you'll see in the examples below, the savings can be from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. DHP knows how and where to find water treatment cost reductions.

 

Areas DHP Analyzes for Cost Reduction

  • Reducing raw water usage
  • Reducing wastewater production
  • Reducing chemical usage
  • Reducing biofouling
  • Reducing chemical cleanings and sanitizations
  • Evaluating the system design
  • Improving operation & maintenance
  • Improving monitoring and troubleshooting
  • More!

 

Examples of DHP Cost Reduction Audits

 

POWERGENERATIONLP BOILERFEED WATERDRINKINGWATERPHARMA/BIOTECHBEVERAGEMICRO-ELECTRONICSOTHERDHP has performed audits in many power generation plants. An example was a plant that had extreme pretreatment problems and reverse osmosis (RO) unit biofouling. After a cleaning, the RO units would only operate for a few hours before having to clean again. The plant was in the process of purchasing new membrane elements after receiving less than a year of service from existing elements. The results of a DHP Cost Reduction Audit resulted in many cost savings, including extending the life of the existing elements, with a first year savings exceeding $500,000.POWER GENERATIONDHP has performed audits in many boiler feed water plants. An example was a plant that, among other problems, was greatly overdosing chemicals given the existing feed water and operation. A DHP Cost Reduction Audit resulted in first year savings of more than $50,000.LP BOILER FEED WATERDHP has performed audits in many drinking water facilities, including fresh water, brackish water and seawater plants. An example was a plant that had to chemically clean RO units too frequently. A DHP Cost Reduction Audit unveiled other costly operational issues. The result was a first year saving of over $80,000.DRINKING WATERDHP has performed audits in many pharmaceutical/biotech plants. An example was a plant where RO membrane elements required too frequent cleanings and element life was less than 1.5 years. A DHP Cost Reduction Audit identified several costly feed water, pretreatment, and RO operational issues. The first year savings were in excess of $150,000.PHARMA/BIOTECHDHP has performed audits in a few beverage plants. An example was that one product line was shut down due to biological contamination of the water treatment system. A DHP Cost Reduction Audit resulted in identifying the problem and the product line became operational within a few days. First year savings were greater than $30,000.BEVERAGEDHP has performed audits in several microelectronics plants. An example was a plant that had unexplained RO unit performance degradation issues. A DHP Cost Reduction Audit uncovered several design, operational and pretreatment issues. First year savings were over $55,000.MICROELECTRONICSDHP has performed audits in many other industrial plants. An example was a car windshield manufacturing plant that had to replace RO membrane elements and cartridge prefilters too frequently. A DHP Cost Reduction Audit resulted in identifying several operational, maintenance and instrumentation problems. First year savings were more than $60,000. OTHER
