HelioJET® Cost Comparison

The following figures show an example of a cost comparison for operation of a HelioJET® C-60 Central Cleaning System vs. a 50 HP Kobe Pump/Steam Sparger System

Electrical Cost Comparison:

C-60 Central Cleaning System Kobe / Sparger System
System only runs when cleaning occurs System runs continuously
7.5 HP x .746 KW x 1 hr = 5.60 / KWH 50 HP x .746 KW x 1 hr = 37.30 / KWH
5.60 KWH x $.08 / KWH = .448 / HR 37.30 KWH x $.08 / KWH = 2.98 / HR
(.448 x 8 Hours Actual Running Time) (2.98 x 24 Hours Actual Use Time)
Electricity Cost per Day: $3.58 Electrical Cost Per Day: $71.52
Electrical Cost Per Year: $1,306.70 Electrical Cost Per Year: $26,104.80

Steam Cost Comparison:

C-60 Central Cleaning System Kobe / Sparger System
Creates hot water on demand Constantly maintains hot water
Discharge Water Temp = 160° F Discharge Water Temp = 160° F
Temperature Rise = 100° F Temperature Rise = 100° F
Daily Water Usage = 8,000 Gallons Daily Water Usage = 8,000 Gallons
Steam Cost = $7.00 / 1000 lbs. Steam Cost = $7.00 / 1000 lbs.
(100° F / 138) x 8,000 = 5,797 lbs. Per day (100° F / 138) x 8,000 = 5,797 lbs. Per day
  Estimated increase in steam consumption due to radiation and evaporative losses
  (5,797 x 1.4) = 8,115.80 lbs. per day
Steam Consumption = 5,797 lbs. per day Steam Consumption = 8,115 lbs. per day
(5,797 / 1000) x $7.00 = $40.58 (8115 / 1000) x $7.00 = $56.81
Steam Cost Per Day: $40.58 Steam Cost Per Day: $56.81

Total Costs Comparison:

C-60 Central Cleaning System Kobe / Sparger System
Total Cost to Run: Total Cost to Run:
Electrical: $3.58 / Day $1,306.70 / Year Electrical: $71.52 / Day $26,104.80 / Year
Steam: $40.58 / Day $14,811.70 / Year Steam: $56.81 / Day $20,735.65 / Year
$44.16 / Day - $16,118.40 / Year $128.33 / Day - $46,840.45 / Year

Total Savings: $84.17 / Day - $30,722.05 / Year

Please Note: Due to the fact that the HelioPAC™ contains no moving parts, no savings due to reduced maintenance costs could be calculated.
