Chapter 1 Milk Harvest Calculators

The following calculators can be used to estimate the required vacuum pump capacity and horsepower. The calculators should only be used as a guide, and should not be used as final sizing criteria, since there may be other sizing factors not considered, such as additional capacity for milk meters, vacuum operated takeoffs, etc. These calculators can also help you assess whether your existing vacuum system is grossly oversized.

Calculator to determine vacuum pump capacity and vacuum pump horsepower:

Directions:

1. Double click on number in yellow box to highlight.

2. Type in new number of milking units

3. DO NOT HIT “ENTER”.

4. Click on the orange box to highlight calculation.

5. Click Function Key F9 to update calculation. nd6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 to update calculation in 2 orange box.

Milking Units: 30

Vacuum Pump Capacity (cfm) = 131

Vacuum Pump Horsepower (Hp) = 13

Calculator to estimate the annual savings of VSD on a vacuum pump:

Directions:

1. Double click on number in the1st yellow box to highlight. 2. Type in Hp of vacuum pump.

3. DO NOT HIT “ENTER”.

4. Repeat steps 1 3 to insert the number of milking units and the hours of operation in

the next 2 boxes.

5. Click on the orange box to highlight calculation. 6. Click Function Key F9 to update calculation.

Hp of Vacuum Pump : 15

No. of Milking Units: 20

Hours of Operation: 18

Estimated Annual Savings (kWh) = 59,130

Chapter 2 Milk Cooling Calculators

The following calculator can be used to estimate the savings of well water precoolers and

VFDs on receiver pumps. The calculator should only be used as a guide.

Calculator to show savings of well water precoolers and VFDs on receiver pumps:

Directions:

1. Double click on number in yellow box to highlight.

2. Type in new CWT.

3. DO NOT HIT “ENTER”.

4. Click on the orange box .

5. Press Function Key F9 to update calculation. nd6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 to update calculation in 2 orange box.

Cwt of milk cooled/yr: 200100

Estimated annual savings of well water 60,030

precoolers (kWh/yr) =

Estimated annual energy savings of well water 90,045

precooler PLUS a VFD on receiver pump =

Chapter 3 Lighting Calculators

The following calculators can be used to determine lamp watts required to illuminate a specific size room to a specific level of footcandles or lumens per square foot, as well as the number of light fixtures required. The annual energy consumption (kWh) is also calculated. The calculators should only be used as a guide.

Calculators to determine lamp watts and number of light fixtures required, and

annual energy consumption:

Directions:

1. Double click on number in yellow box to highlight.

2. Referring to Table 3-1, type in new required lumens/sq ft.

3. DO NOT HIT “ENTER”.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the remaining information in the next 4 boxes (rated lamp

lumens, sq ft of lighted area, watts/fixture, and no. of hours lights are on)

5. Click on the first orange box .

6. Press Function Key F9 to update calculation. ndrd7. Repeat steps 4 & 5 to update calculations in the 2 and 3 orange boxes.

1 footcandle = 1 lumen/sq ft

Required lumens/sq ft (Table 3-1): 50

Rated lamp lumens (from Table 3-1): 94

Square footage of lighted area: 250

Watts/fixture: 250

No. of hours lights are on: 18

Lamp watts Required = 380

Number of Light Fixtures Required = 2

Annual Energy Consumption (kWh) = 3,285

Calculator to determine lighting conversion savings:

Total existing lighting watts: 800

% savings of new lights (From Table 3-10 ): 70

No. of hours lights are on: 18

Savings to convert (kWh/yr) = 3,679

Chapter 4 Air Circulation & Ventilation Calculators

FAN EFFICIENCY CALCULATOR

The following calculator can be used to estimate the annual energy savings of installing

higher efficiency fans. The calculator should only be used as a guide.

Calculator to estimate the annual energy savings of installing higher efficiency fans:

Directions:

1. Double click on number in yellow box to highlight.

2. Type in the Total cfm (old).

3. DO NOT HIT “ENTER”.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the remaining information in the next 4 boxes (Cfm/watt old,

Total cfm new, Cfm/watt new, and hours fans operate).

5. Click on the orange box .

6. Press Function Key F9 to update calculation.

Total cfm old: 250000

Cfm/watt old: 18

Total cfm new: 250000

Cfm/watt new: 21

Hours fans operate/yr: 4800

Savings of Higher Efficiency 9,524

Fans (kWh/yr) =

Chapter 8: General Information Calculator

The following calculator can be used to estimate the annual energy savings using a more

efficient motor. The calculator should only be used as a guide.

Calculator to estimate the annual energy savings:

Directions:

1. Double click on number in 1st yellow box to highlight.

2. Type in the new horsepower

3. DO NOT HIT ENTER.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the remaining information in the next 5 boxes (load factor,

annual operating hrs, avg. energy costs, standard and energy efficient motor

ratings)

5. Click on the number in the orange box .

6. Press Function Key F9 to update calculation.

Motor rated horsepower (hp): 5

Annual operating hours: 4000

Average energy costs (\$/kWh): 0.12

Standard motor efficiency rating, %: 85

Energy-efficient motor efficiency rating, %: 86

Annual Energy Savings = \$ 24
