Abstract [en]

The study took place at a food corporation in Växjö, Sweden. It describes a building that contains four tanks in which glucose syrup is stored. The purpose of the study was to calculate the amount of heat that leaves the building and the amount of heat that is supplied by the installed heating equipment. Before the calculations could be implemented, all the systems that supply the building with heat had to be examined. With a small amount of information from earlier studies, the work to gather all the data necessary for the calculations began. Difficulties in defining many of the variable values resulted in that they had to be estimated before further calculations could proceed. The final result shows that the existing heating equipment is sufficient enough to replace the heat that is lost by convection through the walls and roof of the building. The conclusion was that the probability of the result was low because of the many possible errors that estimation of several values causes. The most useful result of the study was probably the course of action, in which the calculations were done. Lastly some ideas for future studies are presented.
